  1. Hi folks. I seen the other 4 para thread, but it wasn't really on topic to what I want to ask about so I hope it is ok to start a new thread on it.

    I am 27 and want to join the TA in 4 Para. I was in the cadets as a youth, and nearly joined up after ballsing up my education, but ended up going to college and doing well in I.T and ended up staying there. In that time e eat a lot, I put on a lot of weight, and drank a lot. About 2 years ago I started taking Panic Attacks which I put down to my lazy healthy life style and decided to do something about it.

    In the last 2 years I lost a few stone in fat, started running, cycling, doing weights and eating healthily, and basically a complete life style change (I style like the night up the pub occasinally though).

    I have a nice house, and getting married but I am at a crossroads where I feel like I want to achive something more in my life than sitting in front of a computer 5 days a week and want a real challenge in my life before it is too late.

    Is the TA for me? Is 4 Para for me??
  2. TA probably...

    4 PARA - Only you can decide...

    Pop down the recruiter.. Get some DVDs, Books etc and have a chat.
