Now I say this with all due respect, I realize I'm new and at the moment not in high standing with the admin. of this forum.
I've been accepted into the army and am slated to begin training this September. My main purpose for joining has always been to gain more life experience in order to become a better candidate for civilian law enforcement. I've been honest about that fact with everyone including my interviewer (for the military) and have recieved nothing but positive support from both the military and law enforcement sides.
My mindset may not be the best way to approach a new career but civilian law enforcement is the goal I've set for myself and if serving in the military is going to help me achieve that, well then that's what I'll do. The fact that I'm serving my country in the process is a very welcome benefit.
