Hey, I've just turned 17 and have just handed in all my application forms for the TA. So hopefully, all being well, I will be in the TA soon and go into signals. I am also currently doing my AS levels and by the time I finish my education it will be next summer. I was wondering if this was possible.. At the start of next summer, volunteering to go to Iraq or Afganistan, or wherever I'm needed, for 8 months. I've heard of TA members being mobilised for that amount of time. Will I be able to do that?
