Look, will everyone stop whinging on about this whole "6 month stand down" Yes, it sucks. Yes, it probably will mean havin to spend more time at home with the wife. Yes, everyone else is not happy about it either. No, I dont like it either. However.... -This isn't a democracy..its the army -It's not the army's fault that Government has screwed them over again -If you're one of the lot thats threatening to "not come back" because you're stood down for a while, then jog on. We're better off without you anyway. The last thing we need now from any serving TA is negativity. Now is the time to stay positive, Stay in touch with what happens at your unit (even if it is unpaid). All this talk of "TA will die" is only going to happen if everyone decides to go all emo..back themselves into a corner and cry themselves to sleep about it. Rant over.
