im 19 years old just finished a plumbing course but hate it n so am definately leaving. i've always loved everything military n wanted to join army. now its coming to crunch time n i cant decide whether or not to join up. on one side i'd be living the dream doing a job i know i'll love, but the thought of what my family and girlfriend would go through is steering me away. i havent told my family my wishes and i know they wouldnt approve. my girlfriend says 'do what YOU want and dont worry about any1 else'. i would love to do it but the thought of something happening, ie, death or serious injury like loss of limb or disfigurement etc and thus no future is putting alot of doubt in my mind. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
