A person who has completed and passed the physical, moral and mental exam for the military and is in the delayed entry program (D.E.P.) for any branch of the Armed Forces. Poolees have already signed their military contract, have took the oath of enlistment and have sworn into their respective branch. Generally a poolee may stay in the D.E.P. for up to one year and must stay qualified and contact their recruiters weekly. Most Poolees are required by their recruiters to attend classes and physical training once every other week.
After my 16 days as a poolee, I will ship out for MCRD Parris Island!
