Hi all, I am currently on application for the royal marines, im currently at medical stage. I am really looking forward to the next 12 months or so as my application progresses. I joined because its a lifestyle ive been interested in since i was about 16 im 20 now. Other than the general duty's the RM carry out and smaller scale conflict ops; im interested to know how likely we are to have a full out war e.g. like Afghan/Iraq say within the next 5 years? It wouldn't put me off it would probably motivate me *text deleted*. As much as all the negatives that come with war isn't pleasant, i want to experience at least one tour in my career. Any idea as to the next 5 years and conflict/war we may face i would be interested to know about and how likely the RM are to be involved. Thanks in advance.
