Age of recruitment

#1

Heyo,

Applied a few weeks ago and was accepted. The minimum age was waived for me due to my young age of 16. Came back to find that they don't offer waivers anymore and had my application- unfortunately- denied. Can I ask what inspired the change to no waivers? Was looking forward to getting back involved with the milsim unit.

All the best,
Scott

You joined at the start of April the minimum age was not waived, at that time it was over 15 but shortly after you joined the age has been put back to over 17 again. You also never showed for any phase 1 training.
Occam's razor:
Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily which is interpreted as requiring that the simplest of competing theories be preferred to the more complex or that explanations of unknown phenomena be sought first in terms of known quantities.

Fair enough mate. I was going to show but had issues with availability and the mod pack that tech support tried to help me with. I was going to return upon my availability, but unfortunately the age requirement was raised. I don’t blame the unit for wanting it’s members to be older though. It’s my fault for staving it off- really makes me wish I hadn’t now. But I’ll be sure to return when I’m old enough, really set on membership here.
