Hey all, Im a 23 year old Ammunition Technician (AT) and have been in the Army since the age of 17 and passed the AT course in 2003. I have always wanted to commission at some point regardless of LE or DE. I have recently being given my A/Sgt and as such my opinion of doing a full career has gone from a possibly to a certantly. As such, I wish to get the best out of my remaining time in the forces. I currently have the best part of 16+ years to push and was wondering what, in your opinion is the best route to take. Stay as a Soldier and steadily progress through the ranks and possibly one day be given a late entry commisssion or dive in now and see what happens with the direct entry? I am more than aware that military clicks are fical and even the inclination that you wish to leave your current trade/job/role can lead to the label of deserter within the trade group which you serve so wish to know any pros and cons that anyone can suggest. Any and all answers appreciated.
