My gf just got into the British Army

As the title says my girlfriend just got into the Army.I really proud of her as 6 months ago she was completely unfit and fed up with her desk job and now she's passed the selection process and is off to basic training in a couple months.
The trade she's chosen to do should keep her away from any desert locations,but for a while, as we live together I'm going to feel like a single parent looking after our Weimaraner and cat as she'll be away for 3 months training.
Just hope she doesnt come back a butch lesbian!

Dont let her see that post then. She might hand your ass to you when she gets back!

Congrats to her! Hope she can stick with it and enjoy every moment

That was the reason I suggested she join

Luckily for me she has no interest in this site,so I think I'm quite safe,so any unarmed combat will be of non deadly kind

That's awesome! I'm proud of her, and I don't even know her.

Joining the military takes some serious 'nads, man.

No, that's a great idea. If she could kick Chuck Norris's ass, maybe all the lame jokes would stop.

It certainly does in this day and age! I applaud her for her courage and wish her all the best! I hope the new job she has makes her feel fulfilled.

Re: My gf just got into the British Army

Thanks guys for the support.
I've always supported the military,even if I hadn't agreed of some of the positions the government has put them in.I wanted to join the Royal Marines but being a migrane sufferer I couldn't.
I've got nothing but admiration for the armed forces and having my girl sign up really brings it home what our men and women do for us
