As a former TA officer myself, I understand the dedication required but I also know how incredibly rewarding and exciting it can be. It is a career that could take you to new countries, will equip you with new skills and will give you an invaluable bond with new friends. We are building an integrated Future Force with a greater reliance on the Reserves and to do this we are investing an additional £1.8 billion over ten years to improve their training and equipment.
This campaign is another step towards this goal and I would encourage people watching at home or attending one of the regional events to seriously consider serving with the TA.
