    my personal opinion

    PES A,B

    • 90% physical
    • 10% mental (getting and even more )

    Bad
    • TAKE COVER!!!
    • FIRE!!!
    • CHARGE!!!
    • DIG (foxhole) FASTER!
    • EXTRA!!! (and more...)


    Good
    • 2yrs seems to pass by pretty fast after doing the above-mentioned "Bad" things.
    • after the just go back bunk and



    PES C and below(admin work)
    • 90% mental (idling and waiting for the day to end, or ORD)
    • 10% physical (as "sai kang" warriors)

    Good
    • there is no much work to do.


    Bad
    • waiting 2yr for ORD is mentally demanding if there's nothing to do.



    IMO the best is to get balanced a mix of both

    They do check for flat feet. I also have slight flat feet and was diagnose during the medical checkup. No problem at all. I went thru the whole BMT and 6yrs of regular service. IPPT silver most of the time.

    Only after left the service then kena back problem and downgrade to C9N9. Excuse IPPT = no more $$$ but still have to go reservist. Checking out our new hardware yearly.

    Going back holiday chalet in August again. Wowhooo

    True story : I remember when I was in BMT, one day they asked who had flat feet. Naturally, a lot of hands shot up and they registered themselves (now I'm only guessing, but I'm sure the most common word in everybody's mind then must be "downgrade" )

    In the end I think they either got special boots or insoles or something like that

    ya man,,,, quite true. Eh,,,, if you PES BP and you done with 5 months and have managed to upgrade yourself to A or B standard, does that mean you are now considered PES A/B and are qualified for vocations which require you to be either one???

    Sodesne!

    Bro skythug, I was just kidding. If you really have a medical condition, please don't take it lightly as you don't want it to become a problem for you when you get older. Safety always comes first ya

    I did not know i have flat feet until i am enlisted. I always thought walking without an arch is normal. Anyway, it is not normal. Because of my flat feet, my feet are easily tired after a normal 2.4km run, especially the arch and heel area. After a while, the heels start to feel weird every morning. Now, i decided i need something to help and chose to invest in a pair of custom insoles. Hey it works. My feet has better support now, even my lower back pain is not bothering me anymore.

    Just to share with brothers here, check out orthotics lab singapore. i am quite happy with the service. If this can help, why not?
