Okay - recruiters are allowed to roam hallways at our local high schools. Anyway, we have a CLOSE friend who died last December from a roadside bomb (only 20 years old) and my daughter always looked up to him as a big brother. ANYWAY! difficult child 2 came home with a bunch of stuff from Army and saying how he wants to join because he thinks he can handle basic training and gets a lot of money. He wants his social security number so he can give it to the recruiters at school. I admire the military - admire all of those who serve - but I truly do not think difficult child 2 could handle such a thing. He would really SNAP! He can't handle being told what to do by ANYONE! Let alone a drill seargent! He is so "in the moment" that he HAS to give them all his information NOW! But I also know that in a few days, he changes his mind. But right now, he is so adamet about it! - as if he can't see straight! I really don't think bipolar is good for military because he would get killed in BASIC TRAINING!
