Jamaica Defence Force :: How To Join The Reserve

HOW TO JOIN THE RESERVES

Want to serve your country but dont think you have the time? Think again. Members of the Third Battalion the Jamaica Regiment (National Reserve) are only required to serve a minimum of 19 days for the year, which allows them to have gainful employment elsewhere, while still being able to serve their country in times of need. 

Why not join and be a soldier in an infantry battalion, a pilot of a JDF aircraft or a crew member on a naval vessel?

The requirements and procedures for becoming a member of the Third Battalion the Jamaica Regiment (National Reserve) as an officer or soldier, are the same as that of the Regular Force with two notable exceptions:

1. Applicants are accepted up to age 28.

2. Applicants with appropriate Aviation or Maritime qualifications can join the JDF Air Wing Reserves or the JDF Coast Guard Reserves.
