Re jumping, try a sports jump to see if its your thing, rather find out before you turned up than were dissapointed after all that training!
From what I'm told you should join because you like practical jokes, sarcasm, fistfights, beer, physical endurance and thinking (probably with some justification) that you are the best infantry in the army.
Jumping out of a plane seems to be the least of it.
