Hi lads Got my interview a week Thursday,but still don't really have a clue as to what I want to do in the army. I want to do combat, but my careers office are really trying to push me away from infantry as they keep saying it'd be a waste. They're pushing me towards RMP (I don't want to do that), OpIntel (Don't want to do that either, or RE. My question to you is, if I join as an engineer, how long is it 'til I can train to become a combat engineer, then possibly a commando engineer? Is that how it works, or am I completely off target? I know I want to go in the army to fight, as blood-thirsty as that sounds.. but I would also like something that would give me transferable skills once I leave.
