If you had to join the armed forces what would you do and why?
Let's say it is 1939, and you know that war is coming and you have to sign up, what would you go into?

I would be either looking for an artillery job so I can shell the enemy from 10 miles away or possibly a place on a Destroyer or something hunting U boats cause the modern Destroyers were pretty safe from everything but air attack.

Seeing as how contact lenses were not invented until after the BoB I can't be a pilot - I could be a navigator I suppose, or a infantry man or a tank driver.

You do know that the enemy will try everything to take out the artillery. Airbombing, fightersweeps, commandos, paratoppers, groundshelling, ect. so being an artillery commander is not the safes work.

Would like to be an infantery. All that thrill when you rush towards the bunker yelling: "CANNONFODDER!!!". [:p]

depends what side you're talking about...

my grandfather had no choice in 1941, a NEIN would have meant a very swift yet painless death. He sais he was lucky as he was added to communications... still got mangles by a russian mortar in '45... fixing a telephone line...

I'd join the monks in Malasia and get the fk out of the place...
