Default Army or no Army????

Lately my mother has been trying to get me to go into the Army. We went to a recruiting place to get some information. It sounded great and all. But I guess I am just a little nervous about going for it. What is basic training like? What happens after basic training?? Im also in a relationship and wants to come in the army with me. Does anyone know how the buddy program they have works??? Please help me all you can. Thank you!!

If you don't know if you want it or not, then you don't. If you're afraid of going to boot camp and are afraid to get yelled at or go through rough treatment and activities then it will tear you down. If you want it, and are sure that you're gonna be able to take it then I say go for it.

You just have to remember that at Basic. You are going to get into trouble for yourself and everyone elses actions. The drill Seargants aren't doing this on a personal level, but because it's their job to yell at you. They can't touch you physically in a harmful way or even search your person. You have absolutely nothing to worry about. They aren't going to let you die there.

i would definitely go into the army first, college afterwards... the benefits are supposedly amazing... they have loads of different programs, you can even go to college while in the army... talk to a recruiter about the different programs they have. depending on what you want to do, you may not even need to go to college afterwards...

I agree. Wait until you get into the Army if that is what you decide to do.
