View Full Version : My baby in the military???

As some of you may know, my son applied to the Royal Military College for Engineering. He has already been accepted into Dalhousie Engineering. He states that he wants a military career. Now he's freaking because he's unsure. Which is good. This is a major life decision and one not to be taken lightly. If he goes he would spend his first year in St. Jean Quebec and the remaining 3 years in Kingston. He would have his tuition and books paid and receive a salary while attending. Seniority starts accumulating at his time of entry. After graduation he owes 4-5 years of service.

It's an extremely competitive program (they accept 30 per year) and I am very proud of my boy :goodvibes . He will have some things to think about the next few days. My husband and I would like him to try it and if he doesn't like it withdraw. I don't want him to go to Dal because he's afraid to miss the university party experience (not that that's not valuable but I think that wherever there are young people together there will be a party :party:)

anyway, these are just my rambling but I had to share.

:thankyou: for listening.

Congrats! Whatever he may decide may he go 100% with it!

Grrr, I wrote a long thing and accidently hit the space bar and now it's all gone. I will reply again later. My brother has spent his whole life in the Canadian armed forces so will get back that. Anyway congrats on his acceptance in the program!
