Yes I considered that for a minute. It was choice C in my post

My BS monitor is set to 'high' right now; no apology for my thoughts - they were pretty surface level. But - if you want an opinion based on the (IMO wildly unlikely, but possible) assumption that choice C from my post is the real deal...

I think you should think long and hard about a military career of any kind because now that I know you a millimeter's pinch further (by your reply) I think you are much too sensitive for military. If a stranger on a political forum's reply to your question bothered you that much, I hate to think what boot camp would do to you.

Drill sergeants are much more rude than I am.

Best of luck to you in whatever you decide. Ron Paul tells people they should do whatever it is that they want to do. I would only echo that sentiment. I would not even tell my son what he should do when he came to me for advice on military service. He served 8 years by the way, and I am very proud of him. More than that, I am happy he came home in one piece; many of his friends did not.

My "rudeness" - well you take it how you choose to. I think it is rude to yourself (and in an abstract way, our soldiers) to put such little weight in a decision like that, that you ask strangers what you should do. Whatever - people do what they do for their own reasons, including joining a political forum to ask strangers their advice on a decision that will mark their very course.

See, not only do we not know you - you do not know the people who will reply to you. I am an old lady and I will share something with you that I learned a long time ago. Be careful who you seek advice from.
