Hi all, I'm new on here, please be gentle with me... I'm a 28 year old female and have been wanting to follow a military career for a few years but have had other commitments and have not felt mature enough to take on this responsibility. I am now really wanting to join but am very aware that by the time I have completed the application process etc I could well be nearly 30!! I know I've left it a bit late but I suppose I just forget how old I am as I still think I'm 23 or so but finally ready to make the step. I am looking at CMT, HCA or Dog Handler. I am worrying as the majority of recruits are going to be a lot younger, will I fit in? I have been told that my superiors, who will be nearer my age won't be my friends as the ranks don't mix? Please help, I want to follow my dream but I don't want to get there and then be a lonely old recruit Thanks in advance.
