I was wondering if i could get some advice about a pretty stupid concern of mine. I'm 22 years old and since leaving school i've always had a sort of deep down yearning to join the army, specifically the infantry, it's just the way of life, the comradery and the knowledge that you're actually part of something worthwhile that draws my interest. Now for the stupid part, barely a week goes by without the sad news of another soldier killed in helmand usually by ied attack. The fact that it's so hard to determine where and when one of these things may go off terrifies me to the point where i'm just unsure whether to go for it or not, i guess i'm just looking for anyone who had the same feelings before/after joining up and how they 'dealt' with it. I know it's a bit stupid but i'm just interested in peoples feelings towards the issue. If i decide to just say fcuk it i'll be applying to join the PWRR hopefully in 2nd btn as light role. Thankyou for anything you can add (good or bad) and thankyou all for serving. Cheers.
