To be honest buddy I was on about here and now, not 3 years ago but if you have not addressed all your issues over the 3 year period then is it not unfair to expect the Legion to sort your out?Mostly money, and attitude issues. I was unemployed for a long time, struggling with money. And I live quite far. (as you might have notice).
Also, I'm sure that three years ago I wouldn't have lasted 5 minutes with my shit attitude. That's why I'm asking precisely on that regard.
Now I have a semi decent job, and enough money to save up for the plane. Needed to get my shit in order. A lot of other sentimental stuff that none of you give a fuck about.
I'm glad though, cause I think now I might have a better chance. But we'll see.

I say this as I was an ass when I was young behaviours effect yourself and others I must have driven some of my colleagues mad with my attitude and antics you have to decide on what’s best for you but the Legion can’t save every person sometimes we have to do it ourselves.
You state the following!
“But yeah, you're absolutely right, I don't expect the legion to be my mom or dad, that's why I'm happy I couldn't leave back then. Maybe now I have a better chance.”
As my understanding of joining is that you are actually taking on the Legion as your Mother and Father that’s the reason the Legion will always look after their own for ever!
Like you sort of give up all ties with Civi street and take the Legion as your Mum/DadMaybe, but with less emphasis on the mollycoddling. More like an old-school drunk dad. I have an old Cuban soldier friend, he always says that the nation is the Mother, the Army is the Father.
Maybe in that sense?
Bruno,Sounds a bit sad, but I really don't have much in my "civi" life. So it doesn't sound too bad to be honest.
