Cool. What trade/job do you do? What would be best for a girl of small stature? I want to survive, haha. I'm also willing to put in a ton of hard work though.

I'm infantry, which are the most well-recognized soldiers because they're the ones physically conducting patrols, kicking in doors, doing the shooting on the ground, and so forth.

Infantry is physically the hardest trade to get into: part of my training is a 13km march with a full battleload (as if you're going to battle) which means you're in your helmet, vest, have all your gear, your rifle, and about 50 pounds on your back.

Which trade depends entirely on what you want to do. Do you like shooting? Do you like running? Do you like observing? Do you like math? Do you like performing first aid? Do you want to fly? And so on: All of those questions will give you a different career in the military.

I've heard that a lot of sexual harassment goes on in the military. Is that true for Canada? The American military sure has high stats: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23636487/ns/us_news-military/

I believe there's a few others, but I'm definitely the best and most qualified.

Clearly the moderators are against truth and honesty. What a shame.
