I did the Marine Corps, College, Nationally-ranked college rugby team, and the Marine Corps rugby team. All at once. It was alot though.
Prudence, there is no need to make excuses for not going into the military. You chose not too, I as well as most, will not look down at you. Quite frankly, I think the military would be better off without those who didn't want to be there. All they do is cause problems, get people hurt, etc.
I am not making excuses for not going into the military. I personally viewed the military as a waste of my time and my goals at that time. The military did not fit in with my plans. My point was that I was surrounded by folks who served and understood that it was not in my best interest to belong. That aside, I still would have excelled in the military. My values coincide with the values of the Armed Services.
