Hey guys, Hopefully most of you reading this are serving/ex AAC soldiers/NCOs....etc. I was in the army last year and got MD'd, now im fine and well and re-enlisted, going to pirbright soon. one problem, I only have about a week to finalise my capbadge, last year it was AAC aviation g/crew spec, and I dont know if I should keep..... I was hoping you guys could inspire me a little (prefferably alot) and give me an insight into life in the regiment and on deployment, and the promotional scales, dont worry about training i know what to expect as ive done it before, apart from phase 2 middle wallop. One question that really lies in my head is.. 'If i go to afghan say, will I get to see some action, will I be able to come home to my family and say I had bullets flying over my head etc etc... or will it be stuck at camp bastion or somewhere similar for the whole 6 months?' Im looking for a bit of excitment out of my army career, but at the same time want to work with aircraft, i could join the raf but i would never join that heap..(only my opinion dont want to offend any fellow airmen in the raf) Please let me know as much as possible if you have a quick minute to write in a reply, would really appreciate it as my papers need to be sent off on wednesday, hopefully is a good job but just want to brush things up so i dont end up joining the royal anglians or something which part of me wants to do. cheers guys.
