Botswana Defence Force (BDF)
Military career
Military career

The BDF has a positive record of being a professional and disciplined force which can rightly be called the pride of the nation. Soldiers enlisting to the BDF are servants and defenders of the nation, and their duty as new entrants is to keep this record unblemished. The profession newly recruits take is a profession that places duty and a country before self.

New recruits undergo six months of rigorous training in preparation for the complex environment of military life, but training is a continuous and progressive process and the graduation of the first leg marks the beginning of training that new privates undergo when they get to their respective units.
