I have been lucky to have been involved in different operations which have seen me sent to East Africa and Afghanistan. My best years have pretty much been the last 3/4 years I have been a Cpl which has seen me be a section commander/weapons instructor / Team leader on ship at M-Coy 42 CDO. The last year being down here on a team has also been a massive highlight and I am very much looking forward to KSPO. When I first passed out I was proud as punch. I ended up, however, going to 43 Cdo and felt like a glorified security guard. From there pinged for sigs (a really bad start to being a commando ). Some jobs are rubbish but I've also had some great jobs. It's all about taking the rough with the smooth. I was thinking about handing my chit in fairly soon a couple of years back but this draft has re-envigorated and I have found what I love to do (coach) and applying for a branch transfer into the DL branch.
