I'm a black dude making a thread! Right, after my education, one of the options I'm thinking of doing, is enlisting in Her Maj's armed forces and becoming a biomedical scientist through that route. I've read (and watched) the blurb and it all seems pretty exciting, it's something that I absolutely CAN do and it's a scary, but potentially rewarding career if I ever want to revisit civilian life. Now, I know that there are many, many people here who've been through the service at one time or another, for many different roles, and I wanted to know what your experiances were, what was it like? What did YOU gain out of it?
