Alright once again looking to BCSB for advice. I've really been wanting to join the army lately as an Infanteer or Combat Engineer. I've already submitted and online application but haven't told anyone in my family yet, and have told very few friends. The general consensus between my friends is that "I'm an idiot", so I've refrained from telling any more people. I've done my research and am very aware of the pay, or lack thereof. Always kind of wanted to do this but now I'm at a point in my life where I need something new, and I think regardless of what I choose to do in life this would be a great stepping stone. I know I can take whatever they'll throw at me, oil work has kind of prepared me in that respect. The only things at this point holding me back are the wages and 3year contract you sign. 3 years is a long time but I know it will show any future employer that I can commit. Any thoughts or advice? Again please don't flame.
