The changes in the Army will take full effect from the beginning of March, as the recruitment of new recruits will be done by the Hoplite Reception Points and the training centers will be abolished.
The changes will affect the hoplites that will be presented in 2018 Β ΕΣΣΟ.
Specifically, the Hoplite Reception Points will operate throughout Greece in 23 different points.
These are reception units located in the areas where the conscripts will serve their term. At the Hoplite Reception Points, according to the newspaper "Democracy", the new recruits will remain as 3 days for the necessary medical examinations and to receive clothing and then they will be promoted to the units for their training in weapons and specialty and the rest of their term.
So that the hoplites can find out where they will be presented, they should visit the website of the General Staff and using their personal ASM (Military Registration Number) to find out at which Hoplite Reception Point (ΣΥΠΟ) should be classified.
