When i left School in the UK and went to college i felt that i would rather of joined the forces (Army or Navy) as college was a waste of time for me doing Accounting , Electrical engineering and IT and it bored the crap out of me. Both my cousin and uncle were in the forces , Uncle was a paratrooper and my cousin was in the Royal Marine commando's. Both served over 20 years. So i have a small military background. I've always fancied going into the Navy or the Army so i went to a recruitment office and found two possible career's i liked and they were looking for personnel. One was in the Navy as a Gunner onboard one of the Ships (Ahiddenman on the machine guns yeah right) and the other was a Weapons technician in the British army (Frontline). Anybody on here who's currently in the Forces or have served time? P.S - I know lots of shit happens out in Afghan but you should never think about that side of things.
