Right before people start given me all this "oh its your decision don't ask us just do what you think is right" don't bother lads.... it helps no one.... if u wanna get ur post count up like a loser go to the joke section and say wow thats funny to all the jokes no matter how lame they might be.... ok i'm mad stressed! and need serious feedback on my problem.... now as you may or may not now from my previous posts i applied to the Irish Army last year and was put on a panel for a waiting list... and recently Eamon O'Cuiv announced there taken on more PDF ladeens.... i got word the other day that i'm to do the medical with 85 other lads and lad-erellas who were also on the panel... fair enough says most now frankly i know why i didnt get in last time and was put on a panel... im very fit and know what army lifestyle is like also i dont think, i know i have the right mentality, unfortunately i'm not the interview king.... so i had accepted that i could have been waiting for up to a year and decided i wasn't bothered and investigated joining another army.... which obviously led me to want to join the British Army... although after inquiry's etc... i decided on the Royal Marines in the Royal Navy.... so needless to say i've trained up and i'm near ready to go for it (still slightly low on the push ups only pushin out 52-54 max but everything else is dandy).... have flights booked and all for March 12th.... have my accommodation set up and up until the other day i was rearin to go! now i face a predicament.... I really want to join the Royal Marines i mean.... its not just a job its a career... it pays well... your well looked after and are qualified on a bollock loada things when and if you decide to leave it.... i get to do something i love.... and experience things most wont.... BUT!!! i'm not guaranteed to get it..... and so my problem arises.... i mean im so set for the PDF at this stage... i may as well discharge myself from the RDF.... i'm in perfect health and am up on the panel so there'll be no worrys there but i dont know if its what i want any more.... i know a loada lads that wear the flag full time and say there just glorified cleaners doin mine sweeps round the barracks for cigarette butts and doin guard.... possibly gettin a station to Port Laoise Prison or the cash transit crew.... also they cant see much of a future in it.... though they have been to Chad and the Leb and they loved it.... basically im torn on what i should do.... its essentially me setting up the rest of my life.... do i just say **** it and stay home with lads i know or do i jump on the plane on the 12th of march..... any input lads much appreciated and if anyone has any info on how likely a lad would be to get the marines please god giz a shout.... is it just a fitness thing and have the right frame of mind or do they expect you to wow them in an interview?
