So, I've decided to enlist in the Army as combat arms. My family has a very strong military heritage and most of those who have come before me have served in the combat arms profession. My father was a 19k, tanker back in the 80s in the 2nd ACR doing patrol work on the border of Chekloslavakia. He has inspired me as he truly developed a great love for the profession. However, I am concerned. Tankers aren't necessayist needed right now and I see myself in a position on foot. I'd like to have the opportunity to engage in firefights (I know they are horrific, and something no man should ever see) but I feel that is my duty. However, I'm just unsure where I belong. Just looking for info I guess, experience etc.. Can't seem to make a choice doing research on my own.
