Problem is my dad, He is 100% against me joining
Any help

Thanks

Genuine advice here. **** what your Dad says. Seriously. It's your life, and if you want to join, join. It's the best thing you'll ever do, and if your Dad doesn't like it, he can sit and enjoy his shit life whilst you have the best years of your life.

Why doesn't he want you to join?

*Edit*

Ahh. I see where you are from. Well, if he's going to be a sectarian quim about things, then the best thing you can do is join and get the hell away from that medieval way of thinking.

Poor decisions by our rulers aside, you're statistically much more likely to die in an RTA or a drinking mishap than on Ops now that TELIC/HERRICK have wound down. You can follow his argument through to conclusion and say you shouldn't be a window cleaner because you might fall from a ladder, shouldn't work in an office because you might die in a fatal stapler accident etc etc.

He's aware we don't all die as soon as we leave training, right? It's not the Western Front!

I have said that, went through everything he just says "you're just cannonfauder to them"
Has your Dad got a speech impediment ?
