No that is not the only reason for signing up.
First off I am old enough to join, im 19 years old. I just graduated school and quit my telemarketing job which is to boring and I want to do
something with my life.
I was going to go to college but I dont know what to take? I dont like many things in their. Im upsest with soldiers, guns, stratagies etc..
In the American army I will have a chance to explore new things, go places I wouldnt ever offord to go on my own, make new friends.
Of course I know there is cons to this like taking you away from family, friends and loved ones. But I think I have given this a lot of thought, im
just recovering from drug abuse ( not hardcore drugs ) drugs like weed, xtc. I have been doing them for about 2 years and I managed to stop all of
them except for marijuana which I still do sometimes. I stoped all of this with no help from my parents, I could not let them find out about it.
But anyway, Lets say I do join, how long will they take me away from home for? I know there is a basic training which takes like 6 months but after
that 6 months I heard they give you more feedome like to fly back home and do whatever. (Thats what the canadian army does anyway )
How would I go about geting a sponsour? Is there a number I can call or anything? I dont want to move to the states I just want to join the US Army.
