HI there its my first post so here is a bit about me. Im 16 and doing my highers this year and i want to join the paras as an officer this summer. As im under 18 i need parental consent and that is proving pretty hard to get. My parents think im signing my life a way but this is what i want to do and i have had my mind set on it for a few years now. Just wondering if anyone else is/was in the same position as me and if they have any tips to help swing them round. Cheers Ross.
