Today, I enlisted for The Navy because my Boy Scout leader encouraged me. He fought in Korea and is a real inspiration. I asked him what motivated him to join The Navy. He said he was drunk and didn't remember joining until he was called up. FML

  • You're old enough to join the navy and still in the boy scouts?

  • @ 1: Maybe he enlisted as a result of his former Boy Scout leader, but yes you can still be in scouts at age 18.
    OP: If he's a real inspiration and encouraged you to enlist, how did you not discuss his motivation to join until now?
