Part 1 – Introducing the Army Reserve

I wanted something different
and diverse that would challenge me, but be a bit of
a break from my normal life. It’s a different feeling that
comes over you when you put your uniform on, I think. People look at you
differently. I’m exceptionally proud to be
in the Australian Army. My family are very proud. My friends are very excited. Yeah, they support me
100%, definitely. Always asking me what I’m doing
next, what I’m doing now, you know? The job’s very real. The Army Reserve is a unique
environment, and it is definitely a lifestyle. It is not just a job. It’s about going and learning
new things all the time. Your primary role is
to be a soldier. It’s [INAUDIBLE] working hard,
being challenged every day in a culture of fitness
and health, and amongst your best mates. This is a job that allows you
to, especially within Australia, to go and see places
you’re never normally going to get to see. It’s just so diverse. When people get involved, they
realise it really is a real job, and you are very much
needed, and you are a really integral part of the Army. I think the Army Reserve,
especially when you go through your training and that sort
of thing, teaches you a lot about yourself. And the skills you learn are
the same as the skills that the full time soldiers learn. You’re just not there
every day. It’s given me loads of skills,
a lot more confidence. Helps you improve your
leadership skills. The skills within the Army
Reserves definitely flow onto every aspect of my
civilian life. My employer actually loves it,
because they recognise the sort of training that I go away
and do doesn’t cost them anything, and they get all
that benefit from those experiences. The great part is that you’re
always supported, and you get to do things that you didn’t
even dream that you would be able to do. It’s a win-win situation. You learn lots, it’s a lot of
fun, and you benefit so much.
