Possible Financial Bonuses for Reserve Soldiers 後備軍人召集優待條例審查 教召5次有獎

The Legislative Yuan reviewed the draft bill for reservists, which stipulates that those who have been summoned five times for military refresher programs will receive bonuses. 


There has been a discussion about whether to extend the mandatory military service period, due to the Russia-Ukraine war. Although it has not yet been finalized, the discussion has caused panic among parents and draftees. There is even a rumored trend of rushing to join the draft because of the extended service period from the current four months. Minister of National Defense Chiu Kuo-cheng apologized and stressed there will be an adjustment time.

Chiu Kuo-cheng, Minister of National Defense: “I really want to apologize to you all. I don't have a definite answer yet. But we're carrying out our planning according to schedule so it's not so outrageous, right? So this doesn't mean if you join the military service one day later, your service time will become one year. I'm pretty sure this won't happen.”

The extension of military service has not yet been finalized. At present, Kaohsiung's Navy and Hsinchu's Guanxi New Recruit Training Center have reported officers and soldiers diagnosed with the virus. Will this affect the current military refresher training? Chiu said that the refresher programs will not be affected and the military will carry out epidemic prevention measures.

Chiu Kuo-cheng, National Defense Minister: “We have already processed these two cases that have been reported. About 80 percent of our military has received the third vaccine booster shot. Priority was given to service members in culinary work and confined spaces such as radar stations and sailors onboard ships. The booster vaccine coverage rate for these service members has reached more than 98 percent.”

The Legislative Yuan's National Defense Committee also reviewed a draft bill on convening preferential treatment to reserve soldiers. The Defense Ministry believes as the CCP continues to threaten Taiwan with force, it is necessary to improve the reserve force's combat readiness. The draft stipulates that reserve soldiers will be exempted from the registration fee for medical treatment within one year after the reserve soldier's convocation has been canceled. Those who have been called and completed five military refresher training programs will be given financial bonuses. The amount of bonus is still being discussed in the draft law. 

 

 

 

 

受到俄烏戰爭影響,役期是否延長掀起討論,雖然還沒定案但先引起家長和役男恐慌,甚至傳出有搶當兵風潮,就怕役期從現行4個月延長,國防部長邱國正對此致歉,強調一定會有調節時間。

國防部長邱國正說:「我跟各位真的要致歉,目前我沒有肯定答案,但我們按照期程在做,不會那麼離譜對不對,時間一切早一天當兵就沒事,晚一天抱歉就變1年,不會有這狀況這點是我很肯定。」

兵役延長還沒定案,而目前高雄海軍及新竹關西新訓中心,都傳出有官兵確診,是否影響目前教召,邱國正表示教召不受影響,軍中防疫狀況是都會按照程序進行並且把防疫做好。

國防部長邱國正表示:「就報載這2個案件的確我們有,但已經在處理了,(國軍第3劑)大概目前整個平均8成以上,在廚藝工作跟密閉空間的,雷達站等等還有就是在海上船艙裡面,這些人優先這些人都已經到達98%以上。」

立法院國防委委會也審查「後備軍人召集優待條例草案」,國防部認為在中共持續武力威脅的情況下,精實後備戰力是必要課題,草案明定後備軍人自當年度解除召集之日起1年內,就醫免掛號費之優惠措施,接受教育召集及臨時召集並完成訓練合計達5次者,得發給獎金等,至於獎金的金額,還有待法源通過之後再行討論。
