How do you find being a 43 year old private in the reserves?  What have you found to be some of the negative aspects of it?

She's not in, according to her past posts she's only recently applied.  Her profile claiming to be a Private in the Reserves is BS.

Or, maybe it was a simple error from an applicant?

Suggesting someone "can do it because they have"  suggests to me that they went through the training system.

Suggests to me that she thinks she can join/do well/fit in.

Wouldn't be the first time I have read Applicants confusing themselves with Recruits.

eg: There is Recruits Only forum. But, I suspect many of the posters are Applicants.
