Deployment 16 reserved
« on: February 27, 2017, 23:39:58 »
Hello, I am new to this forum and had a sudden question as I was browsing here. If someone was 16, in the reserves, and a full time high school student, could that person volunteer to go on any operations? Any information would be great thanks

No-one under the age of 18 can be deployed on overseas operations.
