I have wanted to join the army for bloody ages, but my parents think its possibly the most stupid decision I could ever make. My dads and ex-copper, and therefore ridiculously cynical, which has lead him to believe that everyone in the army are thick as you like. They dont mind me joining the RAF though, because they "dont do as much". (I think they hit the nail on the head there..) And I'm less likley to get killed. But I want to join the army! I know the obvious option.. just tell them to shut up and get on with it, but out of respect, I want their blessing before I do anything. What should I do?
