You won't be kidnapped immediately after swearing in, other than that, I don't think anyone here can help you without more info about your situation. I'm a RegF OCdt and I was sworn in about 3 months before my course started, but I have no idea if that's the norm.

   As an alternative, leave her, join the CF and don't look back. If you think she'll have problems with you going to BMQ, what will she do when you deploy? If you want this bad, frig girls.

Girls come and go. When the right one comes along she'll stick around for the ride. When you have to make huge concessions in your life to suit her needs it's really not worth it.

My main question wasn't if I should go in the CF. I ask if I can swear in and change my mind without penalty between the swearing in and the starting day ?

Make up you mind now.  If you don't want to go, tell the CFRC that you don't want to "Swear In". 

If you still want to join the CF, ask the CFRC what will happen after you "Swear In" in regards to timings for your leaving for your BMQ.  No one here has access to your file, nor access to what travel arrangements the CFRC has made for you.

Bplante, I think that you are getting the responses you are re: not joining the CF because it seems that you are not 100% committed. If you are not 100% committed, don't waste the CF's time and money when there are people out there who would give anything to get that call.

Personally, I am looking at being away from my young daughter for upwards of a year during the initial training period. (Still waiting for my call.) In the future, there may be courses and deployments that take me away from her again. Ergo, I am making a huge sacrifice for a career in the military. And you can't sacrifice time with an ex-girlfriend to do 13 weeks of basic training? This sounds to me like someone who is unsure of his choice to join and who is looking for a possible way out. Any woman who truly loves you will still be there when you are done your training. I know my man will be.

In any case, I agree with George Wallace. Don't swear in if you are having doubts.
You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom. ~ Malcolm X

Ill tell you right now, Dont get sworn in if you have any doubts now. Trust me I know a lot of people who have been put as NIS. And That means after they swore in they did not want to show up anymore so they got listed as that. Basiclly means you can never work for the government again.

The military is a commitment, Deployments may take you away for as long as a year or even more. Training will take your summers, and exsersies will take your weekends. But thats what being in the CF is all about, its about being committed and being ready to act at ANY given moment. If you have a Girlfriend and she truly loves you, then i'm pretty sure  she could allow you to be gone. I do it fine and sure I miss her but she understands. So ill tell you right now, if your not 100% committed than.....you will never be.

I hear a lot of talk about swearing in on a bible. As I am not Christian I wish not to be sworn in on something that has no bearing to me. Is there another way I can be sworn in? What do I say or ask?

I have my enrollment ceremony,  in the next Little while. I was just wondering though. I'm going into the reserves, and I believe i'm starting my BMQ in September I know you normally work one day a  week, one weekend a month kinda thing. But does the frequency of this change if you are doing your BMQ? Like every weekend kinda thing or is it the same as always and you doing your your training one day a week one weekend a month?

Basically what I'm aking is if I'm doing my BMQ for the reserves in September, do you do more then one day a week one weekend a month of training?

Dates will vary but expect at least two weekends per month for the duration of your course.

I think Theline is refering to his parade nights and weekend trg from his reserve unit. Personally, I've heard two version of this. The first is units saying don't come to parade when on course. The other is that no order was given to come or not come to parade. I personally went to parade while on course but I'm sure that I would not be expected to show if I submitted a memo.

As a reservist its your responsability to get training in. This means you will only go as far as the time you put in.

Most reserve units Parade one night a week, some do it twice. Also you will usually have one weekend EX per month going from Friday - Sunday night. During course you will go off for training in the summer. THis means you will be sent to bordon or somewhere for a month or two. If you are doing a weekend course its still your responsibility to show up for Parade nights. It shows your dedication and your commitment to the military.

Swearing In

Hello,

   I'm swearing in July 9th at CFRC Toronto. I am to be there at 0745 and guests are to arrive at 1245. I was curious to know if anyone has any information as to what I might be doing for the 5 hours before my actual swear in. I'm figuring it could be paperwork..anyone have any idea?? Thank you very much.

If you haven't already signed all your paperwork and declarations, then that's what you will be doing. I had at least 2 hours worth of paperwork to sign before I was sworn in, but I did it on a separate day, a few days before my actual swear in date.

Wow!! I will never complain again.  I thought I had it bad with a mere 45 minutes! (I swear in on the 8th!)
