I got a call from my friend today. He said that he would have to return the three magazines for my AR-15(Long story) to me with-in the next couple of months because he is joining the US Army. I thought it was really strange because for the past six months, all he has talked about was going to the police academy and becoming a police officer. When I asked him why he was joining the Army instead of going to the police academy, he said it was because he broke up with his girlfriend(I didn't ask why, I think maybe I should have), and he didn't see a point in making $40,000 a year because it was just going to be him.
He is my best friend. Sure, we have had a couple of fights, one of which ended with up not speaking for a month or so. I'm really worried that he is joining the military for the wrong reasons. When I asked him why he was joining the Army, instead of one of the other branches, he said it was because he had a better chance of dying. Whwn I asked him if he wanted to die, he said he really didn't care anymore.
I don't know what to do. I don't have a problem with him joining the military, I just think he is joining for the wrong reasons. I really do think that he will regret this descision one day.
I'm asking for your opinions. I don't think anything I say will change his mind, but I am willing to try anything at this point.
