Hi Folks First posting. Been popping in and having a good read for a year or so, but thought I'd 'enlist' and drop a post. I left the mob about 11 years ago, and found that my peers and I were light years ahead of most of our civvy counterparts. We cut through a lot of the civvy bull and achieved some great results. However, from reading a lot of the posts, our PC society seems to have turned the army into a much closer mirror of the civvy street I joined (and am currently still posted to). Crying shame, IMHO. I'm sure the troops could be as solid as they once were - or maybe they still are, and the stories of red cards and the like which I've listened to with horror are fables. Would someone like to give me the lowdown on what it's really like in the Corps these days???
