Hi all, and I'm sorry if this is the inappropriate place to put this thread. To get to the point, I am nearly 25 years old and want to be join the Intelligence Corps. I know 25 is at the older age-range to be starting, and therefore I'm worried about the minimum service length. I know that seeking to serve the minimum service duration is on bad form, and one might question why I'm even bothering if that's how I'm approaching it. However, like I said, as I'm starting at 25 I'm thinking about my career after the army as well. I also know that if the next few years slip by and I don't join, it would be something I'd regret for the rest of my life. A bit melodramatic, but there we go. Thus, my question is as follows: If joining the Int. Corps as a soldier, is 4 years the actual realistic duration, or is it longer? I realise that the more training you do, the more it may add to your service time obligations. Furthermore, what does the six years Reserve requirements constitute? I found the Army's website vague. I appreciate any help on this, thank you.
