Alrite lads. I have wanted to join the army for a few years now but just been finishin education off. I want to join the infantry and have organised a selection date. Passed the barb etc. Anyway, the only thing that puts doubt in my mind is the homesickness thing. How long does that feeling take to go away? And as of yet i havn't actually spoke to a modern day soldier. My grandad was in the army but obv it must of changed a lot in 50 years. Could a past or present serviceman shine some light on the advantages and disadvantages of being in the infantry please. Thanks.
