Yeah, man it is confusing. I guess you just gotta think about it some more. Really think about your options and what you want to do

There's probably plenty you're capable of man. If you feel like you don't have any skills, maybe you should look at why that is, you know? You can do more than you think. Pick up a book, pursue a passion, do something that you can be great at, play towards your strengths man.

Joining the army just because you don't know what to do or because you feel like you're not capable of anything else is gonna hurt you in the long run. Sure army life can be fun for a while, learning some usefull tricks, making friends. But when training is done, you get sendt to war man. Are you willing to fight a war that is not in self defense? Suddenly you're in your mid twenties you know, got a girl, got a kid and the last thing you want to do is roam around in some fucking desert getting shot at.

Go to college or university dude. You will meet a lot of people, you will learn a lot, and you will have plenty of valuable expiriences. If after college you feel like joining the army, do it.
And you know, it would be sad if you died in some god forsaken mud hut or in a jungle somewhere.

And if you don't feel like studying, and you don't know what to do. Do something where you don't get killed at the age of like 19 or some shit. Go travel or something.

if you wanna join then join, but you have to do it for you. Don't let others tell you what choices to make in life because of their political ideals, fear, or because they have this misconception. There are many civilian schools that will train you to be a certified mechanic, but its going to cost you a lot and put you into debt that's just the reality. Through the military you can get cert'ed on many vehicles from helicopters to tanker trucks for less than the civilian world ( depending on which you choose) all the while getting paid for the training. You can also get free college tuition while serving your country ( if you an American, don't know what other countries offer) which if you take full advantage of all the military has to offer then you can actually come out of top after your time is up if you do not re-enlist.

I served 13 years before I was medically discharged for my knees. I was able to get a college degree, I opened a saving account instead of being dumb and buying a motorcycle or new truck, and I lived on post for as long as possible to save on housing. When I did transition to civilian life I owned my own home, had my car paid off, and as able to find a job that fit my training.

You have to also be aware this is the military and yes you have a chance of being deployed if the need arises, but that is where you have to choose to make that sacrifice. Its something all service members choose willingly. its what makes us different from those that do not serve. its why many people show respect for us because they know they cannot make that sacrifice. Its why many people are hateful towards us because they know they are scared. if you can't accept that you will have to fight for your freedom and those of your countrymen then the military is not for you and I can suggest many schools that you can attend, but finding the money is solely on you to get and pay back.

But if you can make that sacrifice you will find a family that will always have your back. You will not make friends, but rather brother who will lay down their lives for you. While civilian friends may come and go your military buds will actively hunt you down when you leave. I am still in contact with many of my friends from my old unit.

But again the choice is ultimately yours to make.

You listed many of the reasons I was planning. I just don't wanna fail. But you know what, that's gonna happen. Shouldnt let that stop me though right? is there things you wish someone would've told you before joining though?

Not really, I didn't join with any illusions of glory I wanted to be there because I was living out of my car at 19 because i took some advice to see my school counselor who didn't really have my best interests in mind when they just told me what I wanted to hear instead of what I needed. I had the "no one can tell me anything cause I know it all" attitude. I then listened to people who hardly had their life together at 22 telling me some bullshit, but it was a 40 year old retired Staff Sergent that got me to listen. He told me that on my path I'd be dead in a gutter or in jail if I didn't straighten my life up. So I signed up which was the best decision of my life. I'm not going to sell it as all sunshine and rainbows, but if your smart you'll be proud of it.

Don't sell yourself short also. I thought I'd fail at first, but I pushed through that negativity. I realized if not that hard, I was my worst enemy. I finished basic and moved on to my AIT where I graduated with honors. It's gonna be rough day 1, but I think you can make it kid.

Why do you wanna join the army?
#296 - demonruler (10/27/2016) [-]
I don't have any skills so I have no idea what to do as a career. I decided joining the military was something I could do. My dad did it because he didn't know what to do, so I can too.

super simplified version: people are stupid private businesses are intelligent and have money I'll just say the things the public will like and then go behind closed doors and tell private companies what I actually think.
