This is borne from a conversation I had tonight with a sprog that is about to go in. His answers were true and good, and pretty much the same as mine all those years ago, but it made me wonder why others have joined. This is purely for people that are ABOUT to join, not for those of us that have already passed basic and trade and have the T Shirt and medals, so please, no "I joined because" stories. You / I have already done it so it is irrelevant. I want to know why people choose to join in today's climate. Comments please.
