I am looking to join the army and have been told that people have been turned down at the selection stage for having to much debt. What is an acceptable and and non acceptable amount of debt to have? Also if i were to be accepted i understand that whilst in basic training you are given a percentage of you wage and then the rest when you finish, is this correct and how much do you receive a month or a week? Many thanks for any advice posted in response to this query. And appologies if this is posted in the wrong area but i was unsure where to put it.
