Somehow I ended up with a degree after three years of late nights, cheap beer at the union and inexperienced birds 'broadening their horizons'. Now I want to join the Army as a soldier, eventually I want to be a Special Observer in the RA. However, everyone (parents, Army Careers advisers) is against the idea and reckons because I went to uni I should go in as an officer. I cannot put my finger on why I do not think it is right for me, it's just a gut feeling that it ain't right for me. The only things which attract me to the job are the salary and the prestige, neither of which I feel are good enough reasons for being a British Army Officer. But am I being a d*ck or naive or what? So what about some informed oppinons. What would anyone else do? Any interesting abuse greatly appreciated.
