Hello! First post on these forums. Basically. I am incredibly interested in joining the army, mainly for personal reasons. I'm mainly interested in becoming a chef in the military, its what I love doing. Cooking is a great thing for me and the chance to become physically and mentally fit, become part of a team and mature personally. I need this. I need the discipline and I need structure in my life to help myself, and hopefully will gift me with the abilities to help others. I have already signed up and have been engaging in regular exercise to help condition myself for the physical entry requirements, granted.. I'm not aiming for a combat based job.. but I want to be the best I can. This means a lot to me. Has the Army helped you as a person? Do you feel glad for joining it and do you think that your decision has helped make you an overall better person? Or made it to your detriment?
