Im having a nightmare picking my 1, 2, 3 at the moment. I know 1, but struggling for the rest due to lack of options right now. Being 27 with kids, the sensible option is to make use of time away and get a trade. As of today I see it as a career, although things can change in life. My question is what has/can being an Infantry soldier gain you that is transferable to civvy life? Reason I ask is I know ex Inf that work in factories now, not where I want to go back to. Edited....er...maybe this is best in the Infantry forum?
