I do not question the order of the force. but my query is for young applicants like me, who will be finishing grade 12 at the age of 17. the army, is all I have ever dreamt of since childhood. with all due respect, I can not spend a year roaming home because I was too young when I finished school. please get back to me as to inform me if I have anything I can do, to join at 17. even shadowing a senior officer will be good for me. thank you .
