22 Year son just graduating from college. Has earned a good / tough degree with cumulative grades in the 3.25 range. Was a teaching assistant for last two years for which he receive a glowing letter of recomendation from the department head / professor. He has an attractive girlfriend who also finishes her degree in the spring. All appears good. No loans / no student debt. Out of the blue he says he wants to join the army, and try to qualify for the army ranger school! Never before did he show any interest in the millitary. He never considered of ROTC, and also shows no interest in OCS because of the apparent wait. Says he doesnt want the responsibility of leading either. He simply says he wants to make a difference. He says money is not important to him. (easy for him to say at this point since he has always had everything within reach). His mother and I are besides ourselves. We both have the highest respect for those in the service(s). We believe he is feeling overwhelmed by the pressure of finally having to start a life on his own and having to get a job. He is very athletic so the physical demads should not be a problem. He is not mature thinking and tends to be obsessive / compulsive. I do not want him to enlist. I want him to at least try to get a job outside of the milliatry and take more time with such an important life decision. Ultimately, it is his life and his decision and I must support whatever he chooses. I know there are many millitary and former millitary members on GT. I would appreciate your advice. I sincerely hope nothing I have said is construed to be disrespectful to the armed forces. in any way. This situation is just a shocker for us. Thank you for your thoughts.
