should i be scared joining the army?

I figured that joining the army wasn't going to be a easy job. I know im going to be faced with scary situations. I figured all that before considering becoming one. Its all part of the job. You have to be Brave, courageous, Smart, Fit, Attentive and all that. But why do i feel scared?

Try and talk to someone in the army, it could help ease you a little bit.

Going through basic training will get the fear out of you. Otherwise you won't make it past basic.

I was in the army, so much blood, and deaths, you shouldn't join, it's heart breaking seeing your friends die, and you don't want to die, so I say yes, you should be scared

I have seen my friends die. 1st year in Iraq. My friend; Corporal Jack Steinfeild. He was a good soldier; he had a wife and two kids. On a patrol, an ambush happened. In the end I was knocked unconscious. When I regained, I was on the dirt. And right next to me was Jack. He was already dead. Sometimes I wonder, why it wasn't me instead. This guy was a father, and I was just a nobody compared to him. May I never know.

Don't be scared. But then again; fear is what keeps you alive.
I joined the Army when I was 19. Yes, some situations causes you to keep your head down. Believe me, sometimes... things just go FUBAR. But, the Army was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Probably because you are scared that you are going to die.
