let's try to get a military thread going, any army /b/ros on here?
post country, age, where you served, stories, etc
I plan on doing army ROTC next year. Any anons gone through it that can tell me what it's like?
USA, 29, Army National Guard for 12 years. Did tour in Iraq, Afghanistan. No real stories. I didn't come back and hate all muslims like some fags do. I don't respect them, but they are just people we happen to be at war with. Seen a few dead bodies, both enemy and friend. Not really affected anymore. I use the military and my vet status to get free schooling. Gonna get my masters without ever going in debt, or hardly paying a dime. I'm not up my ass about my service, but in all honesty I do feel sorry for people that never served. It's an insane experience you can't gain any other way.
And for all you others thinking of joining, don't worry about the people that say "just another dead GI, died for corporate oil, can't live your own life".... those are people that either couldn't pass the mental part, or were too afraid to join. Keep your chin up, and enjoy the great benefits and stories you'll have for the rest of your life.
Active Duty Army
There I was, RC South, Afghanistan.
Damn satellite went out, couldn't get onto Facebook for like 4 days.
Fucking kill yourself you little shit cunt.
If we were in the wild and you came face to face with me I would physically overpower you and rape you as you cry out begging me to stop.
>Seen a few dead bodies, both enemy and friend. Not really affected anymore.
why would seeing a dead body "affect" you?
they're dead so what?
I mean is this one of the things you welfare queens use as an excuse for saying you have ptsd?
>Lackland AFB→discharged during Basic
Year and half later
>Fort Sill, then Fort Bliss→discharged during AIT
jesus christ. Getting this fucking mad.
Enjoy your anger filled life, I'm off to go hang out with friends and enjoy my existence. Have fun fucking up your blood pressure and bitching about things that you can't control.
>See Military thread
>Can you be any more retarded?
Marines are the motherfucking goddamn elite warriors of the world, pic very fucking related
Hey that's my old Division.
Served in the 3rd Squadron, 7th Cavalry - 3rd Infantry Division. We made the first run into baghdad in 2003 and I served another tour with them there in 2005.
Shit sucked. Love my infantry /b/ros
>those are people that either couldn't pass the mental part, or were too afraid to join.
Or they just weren't interested.
And afraid of what? ww3 that's going on ?
There's stupid and then there's ARMY stupid
OP here. It's because I'm not from the US. My english is good, but the problem is that here we call everything "army" instead of "military".
>thinking of joining at 23
>not sure where yet
Kill yourself first. This country doesn't need anymore brainwashed patriot faggots who think their "Defending our Freedom". Fuck off you tenth grade autistic nigger.
You may not agree with what they do or why, but at least have some respect.
Nah Fuck that. Fucking self absorbed god complex faggots. Every cunt I be met who was /is in the military think they're the most important member of society and without them America would fall to pieces. Army is 99% retards.
>Thinking fighting a war for oil is defending freedom.
this is what the gooks think of your service protecting them
I used to think like that too...BEFORE I went in. I went into Air Force, and you know what? I couldn't handle it. I had to leave, and 27 days after arriving at Lackland, that's exactly what I did. A year and a half later, I went into the Army, finished Basic, but was separated during AIT.
During that time, I realized two things.
>That the military isn't as easy nor as glorious as TV makes it look
>That it takes a lot of guts just to get through Basic
Newfound respect for the men and women in uniform.
I find it hard to believe Marines browse 4chan... I'm currently applying, any feedback? General Advice? What MOS do you reccommend?
>61 ASVAB AFQT score
>Above Average Psychometric and IQ(not bragging)
>One-time-felon when minor, but Recruiter said he'll take care of it and that the score and psychometric would help A LOT.
>posts a wrestler
you have got to be fuckin kidding me
Congratulations you fucking pussy.
Couldn't handle someone yelling at you faggot?
I did my four years and still think it's for brainwashed counts who think they're making a difference and that the Army does only good things.
Go back to the basement you fucking neckbeard.
You're going to hate your life no matter what MOS you choose so feel free to pick whichever one you want. Don't feel bullied into another by the recruiter, don't say anything during the moment of truth, blah blah blah.
It wasn't just the whole, 'being yelled at' aspect of it. Had to do more with, "wow..this is the real deal. This is the actual military" I was dealing with upon entering AIT. Keep in mind, I had finished the hardest part--Basic Training (Army)--so my reasoning for leaving was much more than someone who just left because they couldn't hack it.
But if you still feel this way, think of the countless soldiers who came before you, and did it with no complaints. Maybe you were kicked out? I've just never seen a vet this upset about their service.
>Implying fighting a war so your country can gain oil fields/keep defense contractors employed is something to be proud of.
>Implying fighting in a country where no one wants you there is something to be proud of.
>Implying defending capitalism and not freedom is something to be proud of.
>getting PTSD fighting crazy sandniggers that are supported by almost all citizens that hate the United State more than anything.
>Implying being in a 25 year war is a respectable thing for a country to do. We've had boots ok the ground there since desert storm.
Fuck. The. Military. And all who "support the troops"
Sounds like you've had a rough time. Ever thought about leaving the country? That's what I did for a few years after being discharged.
I've seen it, nothing pretty. But still, that's where I belong, I feel. I mean, I made a commitment to this country and its people, but I left before I could even come close to fulfilling it.
Of course, keep in mind, I'm coming from a military family. Both parents are retired vets, and I have a number of relatives who either served, or are serving.
USA, 23, Afghanistan(was a fobbit there), currently Africa, shit work all the time full of only about 3 people that do work and everyone else fucks off. NCO's are too pussy to tell the people who don't do work because they pull out the stress bullshit and or cry like whiny bitches. Shits annoying seeing how this "great" army is full of little whiny crying fucking kids.
Who cares? No one in the infantry asks why, they just want to kill motherfuckers. I never met a infantryman who gave a single fuck about politics or foreign relations.
May-be, but do you know what it feels like? What it feels like to have your relatives, friends, and even enemies (from high and middle school) able to walk around in those uniforms with all types of medals, ribbons, and honors? Meanwhile, you're stuck with 2 DD-214's proving that you don't have what it takes to go 15 days beyond Basic Training. Being nothing more than a constant embarrassment to your family, and a never-ending disappointment to both your parents.
Do you know what it feels like? I deserved to have gone to that desert.
6'0 135? You're fuckin skeleton mode /b/ro. Marinefag here good luck getting in with a felony.
Above average IQ but only a 61 on the asvab? I call either bullshit or autist. I'm probably half retarded and still scored an 88.
Long story short don't join. There's no war going on right now "peace time" marine corps is shit. Hit the gym and Wait for the next war
>Long story short don't join. There's no war going on right now "peace time" marine corps is shit. Hit the gym and Wait for the next war
This idiot could beat your face in to a pulp and hang you from a light post on the street if you said that to my face bitch. You must be one of those retarded/autistismal fucks that have never seen the light of day from their mommy's basement, you have no goddamn idea what life is about or that not everyone in the world is born into an American working middle class suburban caucasian family with unlimited opportunities
Dude Fuck that mindset. Theres nothing worse than that place. Don't think like that. Fucking get out, go to school, learn a trade, learn some shit. Write a song. It's a huge world, so more to see and do and so many people to meet.
>You have probably never heard of me
Since every faggot and their grandmother spouts that name at the drop of a hat, I'd be surprised (and a little aroused) if someone had genuinely never heard of them.
Chair-Force here, used to work at AFN (yes, the commercials are shit) it's a great gig, get to meet all kinds of people and do the fun parts of most military jobs without ever being in any real danger. Kind of like celebrities in the local community because they hear my voice on the radio or see me on TV. Also get to meet actual celebrities and pretty much a "go anywhere I want" pass to just about anywhere on the base. Sadly, I'm now doing public affairs...
bitch i join in 6'2", 135lbs, 82ASVAB

>what those millions of niggers look like
Go fuck yourself faggot. Fucking nigger.
Fuck of poolee like seriously your 135lbs at 6 feet tall you're not intimidating anyone. You're not even in the military yet and you're trying to act hard lol u don't rate shit, faggot. Fuck out of here
>Skeleton mode - I know, poorfag here can barely afford food.
>Above average IQ but only 61 ASVAB - I got the copies of the tests around here somewhere, if you're patient I can sauce
>Don't join, marine corps is shit - try harder marine, I doubt there are worse things that living in an overpopulated, braindead, jobless state where you constantly fear your uncertain future and have to watch your fucking back on the streets so a homeless felon doesn't stab you with a sharp toothbrush just to steal $9 from you.
The Royal lifeguard
8 months deployment (obligatory)
Sucks hard ass. All we do is stand guard, wear uncomfortable uniforms, march around with gay ass music and polish our shoes. We never get to shoot our fucking riffle.
We are just there for the gay asian turist.
You are not a troll. You aren't even up to that level. I'm not even mad. But facts are facts: You are a white nigger. The lowest sack of shit form of life on Gods green earth. And you can now fuck off.
got one story which I heard from my corporal:
>be this one guy camping in northern Finland just before the end of your service
>artilleryman like myself
>wants to try how far he can fire a cannon with increased gunpowder
>this one farmer has just built a new barn to his yard
>little cannonman fires to farmers lands and ends up blowing up the barn
I dunno if the story true
I'm not trying to intimidate anyone and I'm not fucking acting, neither am I claiming to be in the military. Are you retarded? Don't you have toilets to scrub, marine? GET THE FUCK OFF /b/, why are you even here?
9 month service in the german army starting october 2009, pretty rough basic training, followed by 1 month of doing drivers licence for trucks and tanks up to 30 tons, was stationed in hammelburg, largest german infantry base, drove a lot in trainings for afgahnistan. was a lot of fun after all. still miss that time, this was the most fun i have had in my life so far.. most people would not understand this i guess ^^
Lol okay tough guy go beat people's faces in and hang them from light posts or whatever you claim to do
I've humped packs heavier than you, fuckboy
