Is there anyone on here from the reserves unit in charlottetown that could tell me if it is too late to be able to make it to gaegetown in the summer if one were to apply to join the reserves now?
IslandTrooper said:I'm a member of The Prince Edward Island Regiment (RCAC) but I am unable to tell you if you would make it for summer training. I suggest you contact our recruiter Sgt. Taylor at (902)569-9539 also visit the Regiment's site http://peiregiment.com/index.html. Just for your information, training is not only conducted at CFB Gagetown, guys and gals have also done their basic and trades training in Ontario and some out west, along with good old Aldershot.

George Wallace said:As a person who has to deal with Recruiting from time to time, the sooner you apply to join, either the PEIR or 721 Comms, the better. The Recruiting process takes a long time (see TIMINGS - ESTIMATED TIMES FOR_______________ ). Your whole process may not be completed before this summer, and your enrollment may not be until sometime in next Fall, or later.
ArmyVern said:For the OP,
There are also NavRes in PEI: HMCS Queen Charlotte --- if that should interest you.
Gramps: Sgt Taylor was recruiting for PEIR back when I was the 3 ASG Det Comd ... so 2006/07ish. So, the CF became what it is a while ago. >
Gramps said:Vern, say it isnt so. I do believe I saw a photograph of you at a mess function with my dear old dad last time I was back in PEI.
GrilledLincoln said:You have all kinds of time in my eyes. I applied this time last year to 721 Comms Regt. and went away for the summer in Gagetown. In that period of time I managed to fracture my heel which ended up delaying my PT test to June 22, I passed and was sworn in the following day , got my kit the day after that and was sent away for my BMQ the monday following. Just join 721 and you should have problems
George Wallace said:You were one of the one in a hundred billion lucky ones who had all the stars in the universe aligned just right for this to happen. It is not likely to be so easy for someone else until such a astronomical event happens again.
GrilledLincoln said:It wasn't an astronomical event, 5 other guys did the exact same thing. However HQ Troop OC happens to be a friend of mine, he gave the process a helping hand I believe ;D and to the original poster we would be more than happy to see a new face around 721
