Hi Guys, First post here . Just over 12 months ago I was MDed, during phase1, due to a hip injury(long story shortened, apparently if the MO had an X-ray done Iâd probably still be there according to my GP, it was a muscle problem, not a joint problem as thought or something.) Anyway, that was 12 months ago and now i'm eligible to reapply. Iâm just wondering how important life experience in general is to making a good recruit. I've only just turned 21 and have recently moved to London with some mates who are in Uni(first time away from home except for basic training last year), and I have commitments for at least the next 6-8 odd months. Iâm just wondering if you think it would be worth putting off my application for a while longer just to get more life experience to help me become a better soldier in the future. tbh Iâm not enjoying civvy life a great deal and I really miss the army (all 8 weeks that I experienced lol), Iâm just thinking that maybe another year of struggling though civvy life may help me in the future. Any Points of View would be greatly appreciated. Ghost p.s. Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.
