Dont know what to do

Discussion in 'Infantry' started by spartan300, Jun 26, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I want to join the army but have no idea what part to join. I mean I want to join the paras but my uncle who was in the army says that the infantry is a dead end and that you end up with nothing and that I should try and get a trade. Can anyone give me an insight into infantry life and if they enjoyed it and did they find that it was dead end to them. Thanks.
     
  2. It's your life, don't let anyone make your decisions for you.

    If you want to go for the Paras, do it.

    If he persuades you to go for a trade, try 9 Para RE instead, you'll get the best of both worlds.

    T_T
     
  3. Whats 9 Para RE?
     
  4. If you google it, it's the first result that comes up, bizarrely enough.
     
  5. Listen to your uncle, get him to explain why he is saying what he is saying and then make your mind up YOURSELF.

    Just take into account when he was in the Army and what may have changed since then.
