In the course of my short time on this site, I've noticed, to my chagrin, that alot of people here go out of their way to come off as being as cynical, petty, smarmy,, not to ment cruel as possible. The time I spent in the Army was filled with memories of decent, genuine, caring and concientious people. Good folks. People with families, lives, dreams, and healthy working marriages (for the most part). Why is everyone on arrse seeming to portray themselves as negitively as they can? it hurts me to see this level of hatred of self and others. Since so many civs, journos and potential recruits frequent this site to get an insight into army life, lets try to paint a better picture of ourselves and the military in general. just a thought.
