As the title suggests I'm seriously considering a stint in the army, but am torn between these two fine and respected corps. Luckily, I'm in the position of not having to be so worried about my quals when I leave as I have a degree, so those who argue CMT won't leave me as well off as if I had a trade in the RE, rest assured - I have considered this. My three job preferences would be Combat Medical Technician in the RAMC, and C3S or Materials Technician (although sparky & DD hold a certain appeal). However, my problem is I can't decide in which order! How does day-to-day life compare, as well on tours? Which has the most potential for opportunity and a good lifestyle? Which am I more likely to enjoy doing? I'm after a good hands-on role, but that requires some aptitude in the brain department, preferably in combat situations. All this, and, essentially, having a job where I can hold my head high at the end of the day and be proud. Any advice, especially from those in the know, would be appreciated. Thanks.
