  • Delayed Entry Program (DEP) - Age 15 Enlistment Process


    Applicants who are 15 years of age are placed into the Delayed Entry Program for 30 days where they are observed by their Chain of Command to assess their maturity and potential. Applicants will still follow the same enlistment procedures as those of the Private Trainee, except they wait for promotion to Private Second Class upon the recommendation of their Chain of Command at the end of the Delayed Entry Program. Recruiting and Retention will monitor the Applicants time throughout the Delayed Entry Program and will either remove or promote the Soldier based on the recommendation of their Chain of Command throughout the 30 days. 

    Throughout the 30 day probation period your Fireteam Leader and Squad Leader will track your activity within the unit. This consists of; In-Game attendance, Teamspeak, Discord and Website participation to gauge your level of maturity to make sure you are among of quality soldier we want in the 3rd Infantry Division.

    You will be able to attend all events that a normal Private Trainee would, but just as the rank of "Recruit". You must complete One Station Unit Training within this 30 day probation to continue through the Delayed Entry Program (DEP).  Once your One Station Unit Training is completed you will be awarded your Army Service Ribbon, but will not be promoted to Private Second Class and will remain at the grade and rank of (E-1) Recruit until the 30 days probation is completed. 

    Once your Time in Service (TIS) is 30 days it is on that said soldier to contact his first line leader (IE: Fireteam Leader and Squad Leader) to inform them that they have met the 30 day TIS requirement for promotion. From there Recruiting and Retention will coordinate with the first line leader on the Soldiers activity/maturity levels for that 30 days and either approve or deny there performance throughout the Delayed Entry Program.



    If Approved: The Recruit will be promoted that day to (E-2) Private Second Class.

    If Denied: The Recruit will be reassessed on if they need to complete another 15/30 day probation or given a Entry Level Discharge.  Note: (Failure to complete One Station Unit Training within the 30 day probation will result in automatic denial and given another 15/30 day probation to complete or may result in Entry Level Discharge). This is monitored by Force Improvement Group and Recruiting and Retention as well as the Applicants first line leader.
