I don’t know if I told you, but back in high school I had seriously planned on joining the military after graduation. But the idea was met with serious objections from my parents, and not having enough power to stand up to them I relented, and took the other path to where I am now.
And if I look back at it, it is probably good thing I didn’t.
The lucky ones die on the battlefield, but the less fortunate ones have bigger battles once they leave the base.
Unless you are truly committed to serving your country that you would risk everything, please think twice before deciding to join . To go into the army for all the other wrong reasons is just asking for disaster.
