Army call-up this week

National Guard conscripts

MORE than 4,000 new army recruits are expected to check into boot camps in Larnaca and Paphos throughout this week, according to National Guard Lieutenant colonel Michalis Perdios.

The new recruits, fresh out of state and private high schools, will undergo basic training at the recruitment centres for about three weeks and will be sworn in on August 1.

After a 48-hour leave on July 18 they will be transferred to their new units throughout the island to serve the rest of their 24-month service.

Perdios said that new recruits can learn everything about their army service at www.army.gov.cy , but they will also be given the same information upon their arrival at their designated boot camps.
