    Armed Forces

    Well after watching Ross Kemp in afganistan last night it got me thinking about armed forces in general.

    I had been toying with the idea of goin into the armed forces when i was leaving school, but decided as i got an offer, to go to uni, and i dont regret it for a second.

    But watching this programme although demonstrating the hardships they face, i can see why they do it and could actually see myself doing it. i think now its too late and i dont regret my decisions, just makes you wonder eh!!

    Im not sure what im trying to say, but was just wondering if anyones thought about it, thinking about it, or have done it, and what are everyones general opinions about being in the forces?

    Oh and two chinooks just flew overhead, leaned out the window, what a noise!!!

    I have nothing but admiration for our armed forces. The same goes for the Police, the Fire Brigade, RNLI, Social Workers etc. - without these people we would absolutely buggered. When I hear people criticising the Police etc. you've got to wonder, would they do the job?
    It is only when the last tree is felled, the last animal killed and the last fish hauled from the sea that we will realise we can't eat money.

    I feel the same, thought about it a lot but decided against it for something a bit less risky and not so cold and unpredictable. I don't have the right mentality at all for that kind of thing, although i crave that kind of excitement.

    It's when you're stood near one landing or taking off on sand that you really know about it.




    Been in the army for 4 years, and like any job it has it's good and bad points. If I was to do it again, I'd have joined the RAF though as they have things very sweet

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
