Hi, Im Dan, 19 from Chesterfield. After failing normal jobs because I simply get bored, I've decided that I really want to join the army. I've done research and its really took my fancy. The problem is to join is to technically loose my GF of 1 year. She doesnt want me to join and crys when I mention it, Ive told her that most weekends we will be able to meet and if Iraq does arise then it'll only be 6 months, Shes not having any of it. Also some people have told me that once you change from civilian to military lifestyle its hard to be "normal" on weekends. Anyone got any advice or had similar problems? Thanks, Dan.
