well my brother was in and always tried to get me to join. my friends joined after high school. i’ve always been averse to it, and preferred civilian life. i guess im just a wimp for having no interest in war.
and during super bowl sunday, i was talking to my niece’s boyfriend. and he was saying his roommate wanted to join the army and become a ranger, but decided not to because he heard, at the present, the soldiers are just sitting around army bases all their time, instead of seeing action. and i told him, " i think the only way i would join the military is if i thought i was going to be sitting around a base not seeing action" haha. i don’t know why these 18 year olds want to be badasses so much.
the military would have actually been a decent choice since i didn’t finish college, and worked ■■■■ jobs. but i could never bring myself to join.
