If you are being discouraged by the veterans you have talked to then maybe your motivation for joining isnīt really what it should be, perhaps you should hold off on joining untill you are SURE.
The decision you are about to make have the potential of affecting ALOT of people around you, so you better be sure this is for you.
YOU need to make this decision, not anyone you "have talked to"..
When you have, at some point you just have to take the plunge.

Worst case, you do your hitch, you donīt like it.
Best case, you love the life and wants to make a career out of it.

All in all, man up and make a decision.

This is some advice you need to take seriously. It isn't a joke nor is it a child's game of "battle ship". GI JOE has grown up and this is real. It's real for your family, your friends, and everyone else who loves you. Never take this decision lightly. It's your life and if you listen to someone else on whether you should join you're making a big mistake, You're going to be the one out there doing it, not them.
Some of these jobs are more dangerous than others. If you sit down with one person (such as a parent or a spouse) they will do and say anything to keep you as safe as possible-which includes their peace of mind.
As a mother of a soldier, I want to tell him so many things "stay home".. "don't reenlist".. 'pick a safer job". When it comes down to it he will choose what he wants and I know this is what's best for him, not me.

If you are not sure about joining the Forces then don't do it, for once you are in then that is your life for the next few years. Joining the Forces is like taking holy orders as it is more of calling than a just a job you can walk in and out of depending on your mood or your girl friends mood, this why many of the veterans say don't do it.
