Glad you are doing something positive…. You will learn more about yourself during your time in the military than you could possibly imagine. Just make sure to keep your head on a swivel for threats either here or abroad. Many of the nasty accidents I saw were related to training and integration of those that were not combat ready when given live ammo.
Good luck and “insert Canadian military slogan here.” In the Navy we said “fair winds and following seas” and the Marines I was with always said “Semper Fi.” Maybe “Don’t eat the yellow snow” since you are in the Great White North?
