I thought a thread like this could lead to some good discussions, and oppurtunities to learn a bit more about other militaries and services I'm not in any military, but I am in the Australian Defence Force Cadets (ADFC), specifically the Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC). I've been in for just over a year now, and I'm loving it. I've flown, learnt how to handle firearms, made new friends, and been useful to the community. It makes me feel proud, which was great after years of depression and my ongoing anxiety. It's helped me a lot.
