How many ex or serving armed forces folks are on BHW ?
ex army 75 to 78
A follow up question. Do you think spending time in the forces gives you an edge in working online in your own biz?
Ex British army Royal Engineers 1985 - 1991 what a scream! Missed the camaraderie and struggled to start with in civiy street.
No sure it gave me the edge in business, but the discipline does hold you in good stead with employers
I am a Active Special forces Army Paratrooper Since 2001
Im in the Nasty Girls! Lol, for those of you that dont know what that is its a name for the army national guard, ive been for about 7 months now, and im still waiting to go to basic.
Retired U.S. Navy 1991
For those that replied so far...a follow-up question. I have my own theory, but I'm interested to find out what you think.
FYI - I think yes...
Ok, one more question and then it's really bed time here...enige troepies hier? ;-)
Personally, I think that the discipline instilled in any of the armed forces is a good thing, and that those with discipline do, on average, better than those without. What do ex-service-people think?
Ex British [email protected] did you do your training at Cove or Minley Mannor?
Ex Army, late 80's.
Dumdum - did you go through the q course? Are you tabbed?

Was looking at the dates some of you guys served. And some of you are old ! Makes me feel young. (27)
Never been in the military but I attempted to enlist. Scored a 60 on the ASVAP.
I know it my sound weird, but I feel as though that I have special training. My training came from the streets. Weapons training. Tactical situations. ANd a lot of of other things that I can not discuss on an open forum.
That being said, yes I feel as though my training and expertise has helped my business sense. I am more aware, more determined.
I can read people very well, which helps me from being scammed. I just feel as though I am a little sharper than an average joe who lived a regular life.
If anyone can answer this, I'll be amazed...
Up in the morning before the sun,
We're all going...
Watch it, youngster. :-D
The way I see it, is some of us oldies are just x years sneakier.
At least you made the attempt, and that's something.
Street smart is good, and yep, it gives you an edge. A lot of today's kids just don't have (and maybe never will) get it, sadly. Good on you for at least trying! Live long and prosper, mate.
