The Canadian Army Reserve open house is coming up tomorrow at the Barrack Green Armoury from 9am to 4pm.
They have 5 different units including the combat army unit, 3 Field artillery regiments who will display their guns, and a service and support unit that will display the mechanical garage.
We asked Sgt. Justin Robichaud about the benefits of joining and he says one beneiftif professional development.
He says you gain a lot of very professional skills through the military that employers look at especially years down the road when you are looking at retiring and for a second job after the military.
Robichaud says the minumum requirements to apply are that you must be at least 16 years old with parental consent, have completed grade 10 and be a Canadian citizen.
He says everyone is welcome and you don't have to be interested in applying to come down and check out the displays and equipment.
