A total of 1,786 young people began conscript service in the Estonian defense forces in early July, with one-third entering service voluntarily.
"Conscientious young people who have clear goals and objectives do not await a service summons by the Defense Resources Agency but file an application already in the final grade so that they can start conscript service immediately after high school and at the time best suited for them. In this way they can better plan their further studies and career after conscript service," the Defense Resources Agency explained.
