Day 1 – 18/1/2012
So it begins, January 18th 2012, the day we went to hear which division we’ll be serving in and the final medical check, when I thought I had a last chance of being exempted from this nightmare before it begins, but for my shock thou it might be expected that there’s no hope of getting medical excuse or to be “unfit” for service, but people said that the officers who performed the check wasn’t doctors!!! Thou I might not believe so, but there are some incidents that proves such allegations, so it seems that they are so desperate to recruit as many youth as possible due to the current events I suppose.
Because this recruited group are going to start active duty in January, which means the first annual memory of our revolution and the situation might get complicated with much youth in the square and with the hatred wave against the Supreme Council of Armed Forces rising day by day so they believe by mobilizing those youth they have less chance of confronting them in the square, or in other words they can control those youth by mobilizing them in boot camps.
So in a nutshell, after all is said and done, and after an exhausting and excruciating day at the recruiting region now I know that I’m going to serve in the mighty Egyptian air force, or the “high heel” as they love to call it, and to be deported to boot camp next day at noon, via mil-train from Cairo train depot.
