Will I get flak for joining the army not to fight?

I don't care about being tough or getting any respect from civilians or soldiers. I want to serve the country in an Army desk job and not be killed.

Hey.. to each his own. Whatever your reason for joining, there is always jobs that need to be filled. You know? People are always going to think one job is better than the others, but in reality we all need each other in this big dysfunctional Department of Defense family.

NEWS FLASH!!! A lot of those desk jobs have been outsourced to civilians, and there aren't nearly as many as you think. Freeing up soldiers by outsoursing things like KP, desk jobs and the like, frees up soldiers to do what they are trained to do...FIGHT!!!

If that is your attitude then you might as well not join. ALL jobs, with the exception of Chaplains, require you to fight. People with desk jobs still deploy and are still issued weapons to defend themselves if necessary.

It doesn't work that way all soldiers are potential front line soldiers cooks, signals, ordinance. medics, drivers, all are trained to kill or be killed.

when you join the army you do what they tell you to. they need people to fight and die and that is what you will do. you can't go anywhere and say i want to work here but i will only do the easy safe job and everyone else can do the hard stuff. you need to get tough or the world will eat you up

Once you are in the Army they have the right to send you any where they wish. Check the statistics on how many FEMALES who obviously were not combat soldiers were killed in Vietnam.

Army desk clerks will and do deploy so don't think you won't deploy. You are a Soldier first and foremost. You will be trained as if you will deploy so be prepared. If you don't want to fight, don't join. That is the safest way you know you will not deploy.

It would be in your best intrest to keep that to yourself once you are in the Army. When you say that you dont intend to fight what the other soldiers will hear is that you wont have their backs in a combat situation. Generaly people in the Army do not like other people that will not back them up in a fight. So its... More
