The Army has a fair share of BS that happens. It usually only happens when you are doing the wrong thing, so if you are in the right place at the right time in the right uniform, as well as performing your job well during the day then you will be fine.
Marines who have been/are deployed, what do you do most of the time (for Fronties)
Holy christ I ship to basic in two months and I can barely run a mile thank god I joined the USAF otherwise I'd be BUTTWRENCHED
i have an incredibly debilitating mental disorder they don't even know what to call
what are my chances of getting into the rangers?
Go Jogging some days.
Do Wind sprints other days.
or go jogging then kill yourself with sprints
So i've been in the Army coming up on two years at the end of this month. Going on 5 months in this shithole afghanistan. Lets see uh, I enlisted as 11x option 4 wanting to be an 11B and got told day 1 of basic that i was going to be an 11C but fuck it right. Got stationed up in Alaska with the 501st.
I got fucked and stuck on rto because i'm a mortar and all mortars get fucked all the fucking time. I suck the big green weenie on a daily baises because i'm a mortar. So i sit here and guard the radio and try to use the internet and all 12 pages that arnt filtered. So I figured with all this time I have on my hands sitting here I could answer some question some of you might have about the Army or this shithole country.
also 30:60's and 60:120's were really beneficial to my running
USAF is NOT an excuse out of being fit, and in fact most of the desk jobs do PT 3 times a week and you test every 6 months. This is still the military, you need to be in DECENT shape. 8 minute mile (= 12 minute mile and a half) along with 40+ pushups and 50+ situps will be fine for the standards if I remember right, and that's not TOO hard with a little bit of work.
They showed my company this in BCT. I liked it so I figured I'd post it here.
Apparently my media tags aren't working for some reason.
Always wanted to join the maweenz, anyone know what I can expect from being in public with my uniform? Just curious.
Don't join the marines for the uniform.
That said, most people are nicer to you if you're in uniform.
I am not doing it for the uniform (although the pride is a small part of it) I am just wondering how the people will react.
How about family you have not seen in a while or something?
So yeah. Week from tomorrow I leave for USAF BMT. Can I freak out yet?
I wouldn't worry about it though dude, they're both infantry jobs and if you enlist 11x you'll find out if you're 11b or 11c when you get to 30th AG or day one of basic. I don't know an exact 11c to 11b percentile or anything but there is a shitton less chucks than there are bangbangs so your odds are with you man.
If a recruiter says "never", he actually means "probably".
I got some neurological disorders such as OCD, Tourette's syndrome, Aspergers and Autism.
Can this conflict when I'm gonna join the millitary?
Well OCD is like all things togheter so I shouldn't even mention it
Hah, in the finnish thread everybody is now telling their army experienses and starting dates and drafts
I go in this summer.
Full fucking stop. OCD, maybe not, but I don't know.
And since your things are psychological/very visible, you won't be able to lie.
Why do everyone be like "he's trolling" everytime someone even mention a psychical disorder?
A few Chinooks passed by my house earlier.
Hooray I guess?
My parents will be extremely mad if I join the army or marines, so it's Airforce or Navy for me.
