Potentially, military training could be a good thing. There are various paramilitary organisations in Britain which attempt to instill the old values into those who join their ranks. The British Military, as with most military forces, is divided into two sectors, the standard troops and the Officer Corps.
Basically, this is what I'm going for, to start with: http://www.army.mod.uk/UOTC/5458.aspx
If, in the end, I am capable of joining either the regular army or a similar paramilitary organisation, I think I probably will (at officer level, of course, if it's the regular army). If not, or if I decide otherwise at the time, I'll become a teacher.
In the end, it's all well and good aspiring to be something, but, unless you actually initiate progression yourself, you will never reach that aspiration.
