Hey, I was due to join the army a year ago but had to pull out six weeks before phase one, for personal reasons. I have kept fit since then, I have been looking at now trying for the marines, would I be able to apply? I'm fit can do a mile and a half in 8 minutes.
That's a bit harsh, coming from someone who has been on here next to no time, and is a mere civvy. As a rule, on this site, we don't normally swear outside of the Diamond Lil's forum, so why don't you either **** off to Diamond Lil's or **** off away from this site. And when you get there, **** off some more.
Clearly you have never had the benefit of having positive role model in your life to teach you one of the most important lessons of life: don't knock it till you have tried it. If you go through life not experiencing new things because of misguided preconceptions then you will lead a very dull and boring lifestyle. Here are some of the benefits of being a cadet instructor listed for you:
Free CRB check which opens more job opportunities
Free First aid which gives you that something extra when employers have to choose between you and the other person for a promotion or job offer.
Free sports i.e. kayaking, climbing, sailing etc
Free qualifications I am studying RYA powerboat level one and two at the moment which is an internationally recognised qualification.
You get to listen to the made up crap cadets come out with and it's mostly funny i.e. one cadet was trying to convince another he had a fivesome with quadruplet blondes.
Most importantly you see those hoody wearing knobends with baseball caps who have little in the way of a future because they are too busy getting stoned and vandalising your car or the bus shelter. Well all you have to do is approach them invite them and their mates down to the unit. Show them they can have a laugh and it's not school so they will be treated like young adults, whilst learning useful skills like CV writing and interview techniques. Then after about six months you will see them gradually growing up into respectful young men/women with a good future and your neighbourhood will improve.
Or you can do what everyone else does and sit on the sofa doing **** all, moaning about the youth of today.
I am fairly new to the cadet scene but I am sure Blackrat who is more experienced could expand on the above.
