I have been out of the regs for about 2 years now, still only 23, and I am at Uni. During my 4 years with the regs I never got so much as a sniff of an Op tour, I feel I have missed out some what. I mean whatâs the point of training for a job that you are not going to do?! I quite like the Army way of life and blah blah and that gumf. I am now going to volunteer for a telic tour but these now scale as being 11 months in duration which requires me deferring a year at Uni. So am I doing the right thing?
