Men and women from County Wexford who are interested in joining the Army Reserve attended an information evening in Wexford town barracks where they learned about the level of training and commitment involved.

Reservists are part time soldiers who come from all walks of life and have diverse backgrounds and skills. They include barristers, solicitors and plumbers, airline pilots, construction workers, engineers, doctors and farmers.

Volunteers bring private skills which can be used by the defence forces for the benefit of the army.

The Army Reserve is currently recruiting in County Wexford and the closing date for online applications is this Wednesday, September 6 at 23.59 pm. Go to http://www.military.ie/en/home where you can join the Army or Naval Reserve.

Applicants must be over 18 and under 35 and must supply the names of two referees who may not be relatives.

Current or former members of the Permanent Defence Forces or Reserve Defence Forces can be nominated as a referee.

The Wexford Reserve is E Company 3rd Infantry Battalion, based in the Wexford Barracks, which is called on to support and augment the parent unit.
