Could those migrainse just be a symtom of " typical teenager syndrome, lack of sleep, lack of food and dehydration after late night out on the weekend.!"

Cos methinks that the army just may have a very good cure for that.

Ah yes Jack, but the armed forces also have a "wet" canteen on most bases = or at least they did when I was on active duty.......

MM, he will either get a yes or no answer very early on in the recruitment process, so keep him thinking of alternatives in case it is a definate no.

Dunno much about about migraines, 'cept woman usually get them around the time I get home from work....... :rolleyes:

Anyways, if the lad is looking to join the forces as a way of training for a trade, ie not joining the army to 'be a soldier' but learn a trade which will be used as a civillian I would be seriously looking at Navy or Airforce as well. They tend to train tradesmen (or should that be tradepersons..) in trades that are big money earners once you leave the forces.

I know sparkies and diesel engineers that are naval trained and they are way ahead in knowledge and ability compared to any other contractors I use and damn hard to find as most move into consultancy positions with the obligatory six figure salary

I have a good friend that did aeronautical radar operator or summat that now, in his own words 'makes 125k a year ticking boxes'

Just remember to get him to send money home to support the family

Good luck MD (have only just realised what those initials mean...)

If he is taking imigrin they must be doozies when he does get them. I so would love some of that but due to high BP I cant take Imigrin. Heres hoping he will be fine. If he is not getting them alot, and if he is having a full medical he may well fly through. Good luck MD

My dad used to be a navy recruitment officer. One thing he always used to emphasise to any potential recruits was that although the armed forces are a very good way of getting a good trade training there is one major consideration for anyone thinking of joining up. You might just be expected to go to war and kill someone or be killed. It came true for so many he recruited just before the Falklands war (mostly friends of mine who had grown up in an era of relative peace).

I agree with Betenoir. My son (currently only 15) wants to fly. He looked at going into the Air Force as a pilot, as he is currently in the Air Training Corps.

Although he wants to fly the big planes, and not helicopters or any of our non-existant fighting fleet, he is very aware that once he gets his "wings" he will be bonded for 10 years. The chances of something happening war-wise between his signing up (potentially 2012) and he eventual release in 2024, is far too high for his liking, so he would rather pay $70,000 per year to go to the Massey University School of Aviation, or get a cadetship at Air New Zealand.

11 acres (4 in QEII Covenanted native bush), 15 sheep, 2 beefies, large vege gardens and a goat, and still no dog!:(

Oh, and uncountable wild birds - including fantails, swallows, yellowhammers, morepork, magpies, hawks, pukekos, and even quaill, pheasants and rainbow lorikeets [:D][:D] Not to mention possums, hares, rabbits, rats...
