I am really interested in joining the TA and last week submitted my 'Army Interest Form' via the army jobs website. I have always wanted to join the forces and regretted very much not appealing to a rejected application when I was much younger. I am 31 years old, married with two kids and my career is pretty damn boring but pays the bills (well most). I want to do something that is totally different to my day job which challenges me mentally and physically and that in the future I can feel proud of being a part of. I want to train to be a soldier first and foremost and if I get the opportunity to partake in some fun adventure training then great. I am fully prepared (although obviously apprehensive) to be mobilised for a six month tour if required. I wouldn't say I am amazingly fit as have only just given up smoking although I play football once a week and use the wife's cross trainer for 15-20 mins most nights. I would be grateful for any advice regarding preparation for interviews/medicals etc.
