Evening all, Word of warning, im dislexic so pleas ebare with my spelling! I've been thinking of this for about the last year now. As a kid the tipical idea was i want to join the Army. As i got old my sesne of freedom grew and has stayed. Im now 24 years old. With the curret econoimical climate work is thin. I am sadly currently out of employment (as of 2 weeks ago) and there is sweet FA being offered. I have always see stuff on TV about the Arm, from basic triaing, to nights out, war zones and the loss of a fellow country man or comrad. In the back of my mind i have forever though yeah i'd love to do that but i warrant my freedom too much. So i went into my loca Army Carries Office and baggered them to speak to a few lads about the crack, You get a beasting for a few weeks and put straigh, metnal and physical fitness, roof over your head, good grub and decent money, meet new people and friends etc etc. So now i have though about this a lot more and i want in. Isit best i go after crimbo or next week? I broke my ankle about 3 years ago and have no problerm with it. Then i broke my wrist 2 years ago and again no problems with it. I decalired my self bankrupt 3 years ago and have been discharged from it and have no debt at all. I just quit smoking 2 month cold turkey as of Sunday. 6'2'' and weight in 14 stone. Hit the gym 3 times a week and lift varying amount. So do i stand chance or is not worth bothering?
