    You must have served with army magicians.

    They take the best of ingredients, and the most tried and tested recipies, and turn it into absolute crap.

    I served with a couple of sea dogs on different trips

    Good lads- except the smell strange and looked at me funny in the showers

    (I dont know if it was a look of pity, disgust or lust)

    i know a few people who did back to back trips.

    mostly because the unit forming up still had vacancies. the CO went and asked for bods interested in staying on towards the end of the trips. a few weeks leave and they were back for the second six months. no major problems. some guys had to change appointments for the second six months but it just a case of filling whatever spots were still free.

    cheers,

    There's a certain Cpl. (mechanic) He's done loads of back to back trips! Spent Half his life O/Seas!

    As Inf?? little Chance!

    think of it as a triangle

    there are loads of Private vacancies - so therefore Privates will get to travel O/S quicker

    and at the apex of the Triangle

    there is only 1 Officer per platoon and therefore

    they only get to go after a while

    of course there are exceptions

    Whats the wait like between joining your unit and going overseas? I've met ORs who went overseas within a year of passing out, but Officers seem to wait a few years, even longer if they go to college. Any idea why that is?

    Most positions for extensions are of a specialist nature..ie..Medic,Sigs,Driver,MP,etc.Most Bn Elements go out on full strength..However If a Bn who is forming up can't get enough volunteers,Men(plural) who haven't been overseas in a while can be detailed.

    I'm not saying Its impossible to get an extension as an Infantryman,but you have a greater chance as a Corpsman. hope that helps.
