More than 3/4 of the trade is already past 20 years of service. That means they are pensionable whenever they feel like it.
Direct entry......its about time.
I'm a remuster guy who had 11 years in before OT. We need more of the younger guys so that they can do 20+ as an AES Op and move through the ranks and carry the occupation through everything thats going on now and in the future.
I once saw a guy we accepted at 18 years of service. Guess what happened 2 years later when he hit 20 ( and his restricted release was up) ??
