Big Change Leaving The Army (Canadian Forces Infantry)

Well I handed in my papers about a month back for a 30 day release with a pending job when I get out, i am down to five days left heading back home to Vancouver Island (Victoria B.C) for a new job. I have completed 9 years 3 tours and 3 domestic deployments (avalanche control, Security for the Olympics and IRU for floods in MB) with the P . P . C . L . I 2nd battalion ( Infantry). I am a little nervous since the army is the only thing I have known for 8 years but yet i am really pumped to be coming back home and starting a new carer!!

Nick, I was in the same boat about a year ago and the transition is tough. I am still adjusting to the real world. Take is a day at a time. Good luck, congrats on the new job.

Best of luck to you. It's quite the change. Remember that civilians are by and large a bunch of fucking nitwits. The vast majority have no idea what it's like to be in the military. Keep your cool when dealing with them.

I mention that because I had....ah...issues...with civilians when i first got out. It was basically "WTF have you done with your life to earn your oxygen?"

I'm better now, just took some time. Kinetik873 is right, one day at a time.

One thing that helped me get through everything was the thought "Well, at least no one's shooting at me."

I should probably clarify. I got out of the Corps and went straight back into the civilian workforce and college with no time to decompress and get my head straight. I had no tolerance for whiny spoiled mama's boys and people who thought bathing was an optional experience, much less had any idea of the hell we lived and how many friends we buried.

There was a thread on how much simpler life is in the military a few months back, and it's true. Everyone is trained in a similar fashion, knows the rules and the penalties for breaking those rules. There is very little of that in the "world."

I have nothing to say about the crybaby and the M9. That is unheard of in the Corps. We usually fight over it to see who would shoot first.

Thanks guys for all the words of experience and what to expect and also for the thanks , for the dealing with civs I know that will happen time to time, when returning from Afghanistan my first times I found there was a lot of people pissing me off, I now don’t let it bother me as much but I am sure it will pop up. I think the hardest part will be leaving my brothers especially the ones I consider as close or closer then my own family, the memorys/experiances things I have done that most of the world will never experience or understand also the pride of regiment and my uniform those will be hard to let go.
