Hi guys, I am currently in my application process but I haven't specified my 3 chosen Regiments yet. A combat role is what most interests me, and it's always been a dream to join the Parachute Regiment. However I keep getting the usual 'I don't want you to get hurt', from the girlfriend, parents etc. I'm not going to let them influence me, but I guess I have the same thoughts as well. Obviously like anyone I don't want to be killed or seriously wounded, which is obviously a bigger risk in the Infantry. How do other people think about this and do you just go for it? I know soldiers from loads of other Regiments have been killed and injured as well so there isn't really a 'safe' choice. I don't think I'd like to have a role where I am sitting doing nothing, but at the same time I'm not completely sure I want to risk life and limb every day either. Anyway does anyone see what I am saying and what would you say? Please no flaming as it's a serious subject... Thanks.
