You can join and try to help change the system from the inside for the better. Or look into supportive roles in which your helping your fellow
countrymen instead of fighting or killing someone, such as jobs like medic, mechanic, technician, the list goes on and on.
I'm against war and all this fighting but that doesn't mean you can't help your fellow troops out and try to help them see the light, one troop at
a time. There can be much good done by joining the military, you just have to watch out for any brainwashing and keep a strong head. Remember who you
are and let that help you become a better soldier. A real soldier that protects his countrymen against the real aggressors.
I'm not sure how the UK works in terms of enlistment (duration) but in the US, there are contracts for 4 and 6 years for new recruits. If the UK
offers the same then you take the lowest and get the longest training and see how you like it. You'll be out before you know it. But that's if your
really not sure but at the same time really want to do it.
I'm in the same boat as you, kinda, I just got out of the air force and I am missing the military and looking to joining the Army but as an officer
in a technical position or medic. I've been thinking on it for the past few months since I've been out. It's not an easy decision which you should
take your time with, especially since you already have a job. Look into every position available and then do more research on them, those recruiters
cannot be trusted. I still remember my recruiter and if I could I'd kick him in the balls until my foot gets tired. I'm sure I'm not alone on that
Take your time and don't forget who you are and what you stand for.
