Glad you joined?

#1
Hi, i just want to know how many of you are glad you joined, im considering joining up, as it would be a great change in direction for my life, but I really want to know what the people who are posted think of army life.

I was working as a mechanic in a garage for 3 years, but the "credit crunch" hit and shit all over my future, im now working in a bar and considering directions, I am interested in joining the artillery due to my previous mechanical knowledge and experience.... but IS IT WORTH IT?

Don't confuse the date we joined ARRSE, as the date we joined the Army. I left the Army about 5 years ago now.....cos it's crap.

Why the Artillery? If your a qualified Mechanic why not join the REME as a VM or you could try your hand at one of the other REME trades.

By the way yes I am glad I joined, you could do alot worse
