Alright I've decided to take the plunge and eventually get my finger out my arrse and join one of her majestys fine forces. I've been wanting to do this since i was a at school but after college I really never got round to it. I was in the TA and loved it but i'm now 27 and life is flying by faster that an terrorist with a bus pass. So I have dropped everything and started training with the Military Fitness group in Glasgow. I was just going to join up as an RMP in the army as ideally when I leave I want to get into close protection. But recently someone suggested joining the RAF instead. They said i could basically do the same job but get better paid and much better living conditions. What do you guys think? I personally think it would look better on my CV being in the army than the RAF. I'm expecting the usual abuse but some real thoughts would be nice.
