I requested to join infantry to my recruiter but he thinks I should join speical forces or jump school cause I am very fit and muscular compared to the small, skinny, fat kids he's seen trying to join the army.
I did not imply that you were a wimp, if the above comment was aimd at my post/posts concerning joning the reserves. If you took it that way pleas accept my sincerest apology. My concern is exactly as I stated:
"One of my pet peeves is "recruiters not telling prospects the truth". That has ruined a lot of good young mens lives. Even if they are not recruiters, when they don't tell the "truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth" they are setting you, the prospect, up to take the fall not themselves. Do as you wish, but do it with your eyes wide open. The benifits are awesome but the cost can be pretty steep also."
DCasper Thank You for your 30 years of service.
