hey guys, i noticed a thread with the same questions and saw that alot of people helped him out which was great. so rather than hijack his, i decided to make a seperate thread.
i’m 17 and have been thinking for a long time now about joining the military. at the same time i realise that i may be injured whilst serving, so a backup plan never hurts. so im going back to school to finish my senior year and was thinking that if i joined the reserve while i was at school, it could give me a taste (albeit a small one) of military life to see how it suited me. would this be a practical way of doing it?
if it helps i am thinking about trying out for the commandos, i would appreciate any advice you guys can offer in regards to the training, lifestyle, etc- just trying to learn as much as i can before i make a decision. are there any aussie commandos willing to share experiences?
thanks in advance for any help that is offered
