    Re: Leaving for a few years

    Yep sounds like he has been talking to a recruiter. Same thing happened to me ( a LOOOONG time ago). I tried to pin the guy down on whether I would play or fight. He said there were no promises. SO, I didn't enlist. Maybe it's different now. We all have bad habits to deal with (just read our posts) but I think joining any branch of the service for that reason alone is misguided.

    Re: Leaving for a few years

    The recruiter often makes promises he know happen to get an enlistment. However, the person seeking enlistment for his/her particular desires must not be taken in by promises, but reality. Once you enlist....the recruiter's promises may become meaningless. A word to the wise in that regard.
