I did 11 years in total. My "Mans" service started on my 17th birthday so I spent the first year of my service still at Army Apprentice College Carlisle. I left in 1973 when my option came up as I was being wasted at an OFP while being a 430 series specialist and hated working on "B" vehicles. Cushy posting though.
Would I join up now? Probably but I don't think I or many of my baby boomer contempories who joined up to get a trade would have passed the first week of the Americanised training and selection I see in the documentaries I see on TV. "Show me your war face indeed!"
I think that the army in BAOR in the 60's and 70's was a very different kettle of fish. Much more laid back and being REME attached absolutely devoid of any military training as we were far too busy trying to keep everything going, normally by cannibalizing anything spare. We used to "hide" Chieftains with no innards or engines well away from prying eyes.
My son has just finished his 22 years and loved every minute of it so it can't be all that bad. He ended up a WO 1 in the logistics corps (Ammunition tech!!!).

I enjoyed my service career very much and would do it all again but next time make sure I did it all in Germany.
