I am 19 years old. I started college this year and realized this is not what I want to be doing right now and I wanted to enlist in the army. I have been debating joining for awhile but have come to the conclusion that this is what I want to do I am in the process of enlisting and this thursday im meeting with my recruiter to discuss and reserve my job. I want a job meaningful I dont want to be stuck with an everyday job. Combat jobs cross my mind but just like everybody who considers a combat job im stuck with the question do I want to directly put myself in danger? Not only the thought of dying at a young age is running through my mind but more importantly, I would hate to put my family through that. I want to make a difference and acheive great things, i know this for sure. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
