- Reaction score
I'm not looking for advice or anything (which I seem to ask for a lot of the time and to those who reply, thank you) but to spark a debate. I was speaking to a couple of lads from college, one of whom wants to join the infantry and we were both asked by the third lad that wants to be social worker "well aren't you afraid of being blown up or shot?" Now, the other lad said no, which I find quite naive because I for one, am and he responded by saying if that's the case I shouldn't join. I will say this now that my conviction to joining hasn't wavered but I was just wonder what those of you who have been in combat think of this particular conversation. As a side note, I was reading a book by a former armed police officer who stated that bravery is to be able to head towards danger despite being afraid and wonder what you guys think of this quote.
