Should he join the army reserves? ?

My son has a 9-5 job but I think he's going through s quarter life crisis, he wants to join the army reserves. I don't want to talk him into it or out of it but does it seem silly to you, I mean either join the army or don't, what are the pros and cons to joining the reserves?

    Pro - he gets paid for his training.

    Con - he could be activated and deployed into a conflict area.

    There is no such thing as a quarter life crisis. 

    You need to mind your own business if he wants to join then he should join.

    sounds logical to me,   BUT I was in the Army over 30 years .............

    Most of the reservists I've known joined for the money.  It's not an onerous role, you're not a regular.
