Hello Everyone, Served 24 years in the Army, Been out now for almost 2 years in which time I have done the whole Close Protection Circuit thing! To cut a long story short, I've done the Army thing and also the Civvie thing...The fact is I miss the Army...There you go I've said it!!! All i really want in life is to be in that surroundings, Sitting on my webbing at the ranges in the rain sipping my Hot chocolate out of my black plastic mug...Then I'm happy!...In other words nothing else gives me that buzz! I Found myself wandering into the Army Careers Office in Salisbury basically because the smell of boot polish took me there, After a good discussion and a bit of banter with the staff I stuck my name down for the MPGS...If you want to get the stagging on and "what is red and goes up and down"? jokes out of the way, Then I'll give you 5 minutes to get it out of your system...OK finished?, Then I'll continue. Paperwork done, Civvie Medical Sorted...I got a call the other day from the guys in the ACIO asking me when would I like to attend the Medical in Pirbright? I obviously told them ASAP...There's no problem with me physically...well except my head! The question I have for the one person out there who has been so bored as to have read my "War and Peace" message is this! How long after this Medical, Will I get the go ahead for the 1 week MPGS course and then Enlistment? Wow, Need to work on my "Get to the point" routine...Cheers!
