Hello all, So I am in a little bit of a situation and I am sure the views here are biased in a sense, but I would still like to ask. So I am a 19 year old male and before me is a life time of possibilities of civil work and different posibilities, a endless amount in all truth of time to work out my life, but I do feel a urgency in my chest and a rush of excitment when I think of joining the army. I was born in the Army in the QLR, starting in Berlin before the baracks closed, then from here I lived in Omagh, Ireland and we was stationed within the soldier owned housing area and then the Bomb went off, my father received his brown packet and we have lived in Lancashire since. I do feel a almost wish to join the army if only the TA as I do feel the Army could better form my character, diciplin me and get me into a fitter state then I am in now. But the idea of being shot or coming out the same as my father did like many of his generation of Army puts me off some, now I could not join the Army but still die tomorrow with a blood clot or suffercate in my sleep, but all that seems rather unlikely in my mind while the idea of being shot/ blow up puts me off greaty. So I am asking this: Is it worth joining the army and living with that chance of death? Was I to join I am thinking of the Royal Signals or a driver / signals in the Logistics.
