I was supposed to start basic training at the end of September. However, I have a daughter and just before i started she was taken seriously ill. Under the circumstances i felt i couldnt start basic and it made me reconsider joining the army. I had enlisted in the middle of September, so when i explained the circumstances to my recruiter at the AFCO, he said I would be classed as deferred on enlistment. I have heard nothing from him since. Luckily my daughter has recovered but my ex partner has moved away and taken my daughter with her. This has made me realise I made a rash decision and i still really want to join the Army, i just dont know where i stand. I thought id try and get some advice on here before i talk to my AFCO next week. Sorry that this is a bit long winded, i just havent got a clue what deferred on enlistment means and wanted to explain the circumstances behind it.
