I think I want to join the military. I've motivated myself to be healthy and lose weight. I'm 39 years old, and just weighed in under 200lb for the first time since I was in my twenties.
I've been motivated for a while to just be a better person in general, but I think its about time to dedicate myself to something.
I'm skilled in many things, I can fix anything, I can drive an 18-wheeler, I can make sure electricity doesn't kill you.
I think its time in my life to do something, and I'm thinking military.

I can attest being in the military in your 40’s is hard. Your joints, back, will hate you for it. It will be an uphill battle for you to get in at this point in your life. You say you don’t like fighting and don’t want to deploy. I wouldn’t go near the Navy, Army, or Marines with a 10 foot pole. Try the Air Force. The other three branches will deploy you in a New York minute to some hellhole.

If you don't want to deploy stay the hell out of the military.
That's big boy stuff.
