I was thinking of joining the Canadian army for a few years for le free college, for some cash, some future benefits (?) and to become stronger and better at self-defense. Is this a good idea? I'm guessing that soldiers get paid to train for combat and later sit on their asses. Is this true? I absolutely do not want to go to war.

I'm guessing Trudeau will not send the army anywhere and even the conservatives might not. Anyway, do you think this is a good idea? I don't plan on making a career out of this unless I do really well.

So /adv/, should I join the Canadian Armed Forces? Am I wrong about any of this stuff? Is it dangerous to live as a Canadian soldier and are there any reasons not to? Will I change mentally? Right now I'm a lazy, independent thinker. Will that change?

If you're in it to avoid danger and get free shit, I think you'd be making a mistake

Why?

Actual person that is doing just that at the Royal Military College of Canada here, why not join the Air force or the Navy if you don't want to be directly in combat. If you pick a support trade, then the likelihood of you being deployed is not that great, and even if you do, you would not be in front line combat.

Go to /k/ The autists there have a enlistment thread every few days.

If this is a flat, unconditional statement, then the military is absolutely not for you.

Certain jobs (like admin) aren't likely to see combat, and certain countries (like Canada) aren't likely to make significant combat deployments. But you never know. If you're going to join, even if you just want the benefits, you need to be ready and willing to answer the call if it comes. And once you join, that call could come any time, even after your end of active service.

Most people who join out of genuine interest/ enthusiasm end up not liking the military life. If you're joining up with little-to-no interest, you're almost certainly not going to enjoy most of your term of enlistment. There's positives and negatives; it all comes down to your mindset.

Talk to a recruiter and weigh your options and interests. Ask about the benefits, but don't say you're only interested in them. Under no circumstances should you accept an open contract.
