You need to understand that the military is not a democracy and you will not be treated like an equal, because you are not.
Understand that this is part of the military culture and you will be OK.
I am 19 years old in campbell river BC, canada and i've just recently gone through the last of my testing to join reg force in the canadian army.
If you want the cops called on you for noise, join the pipe band and practice in the backyard.
Realize that if the day came that you chose to get out you will likely panic and try to remuster, (as witnessed when my ex got out, as well as many of his friends who got out then rejoined a short while later).
You will have people yelling at you and picking you apart for EVERYTHING for months while you are being asked to do things that you have never done before.
You will have good instructors and not so good instructors (if you are lucky, you will get my ex, he is one of the good ones.) If you miss a certain amount of classes you will fail your course and will be sent to PAT platoon until another course comes around.
Unfortunately people assume that we drink more and cuss more.
And some people take these assumptions and put a negative twist on it.^^^ based on my ex and his buddies they were a bunch of drunken fools, though I am not saying all soldiers are like that, I know many that are not like that.
Just your average guy trying out this internet dating site setup for military types.

Good day fine sir, I am currently serving as a member of the air force. Feel free to send any questions my way, I will do my best to answer them without bias. :)Expect a whole lot of hurry up and a clean people you dislike the most on your platoon will end up saving your ass at some point so dont burn too many for a run.shave your head at first just for the to remember the rank structure before you go in..you dont remember, adress people as staff, never for a run when your done reading care of your your mom to teach you how to iron. oh yeah and the only way to get boot polish out of your clothes is with a pair of somebody to show you how to make a bed properly if you for a run.carry nail clippers in your pocket to cut loose threads miss any spots when you your beret in hot water for an hour when you get it and wear it until it dries, then shower with it on for the next week. My ex is currently an instructor in St Jean so I can tell you a little bit of what to expect and how to prepare yourself.
Trust me when I tell you that YOU DO NOT WANT TO DO THAT!
