I was sadly part of the misguided patriot part.Army not Marines. Scored in the top 10 percentile on the ASVAB, had so many MoS options that my recruiter forced me to take the DLab to test my language skills. Placed high enough to get even more MoS options. Decided "Intel sounds boring, I want my boots in the dirt." gave up Jobs in the 35 series. ( Cryptologic Network Warfare Specialist, Cryptologic Linguist, Human Intelligence Collector, ect) and took an MoS in the fucking 12 series, An MoS that only needs a fucking 30 to get into. A 30 is all you need to pass. Why? some retarded feeling of Honor and wanting be "in the thick of it.Get treated like utter shit in basic due to being in a unit made of utter shit. Could have taken the easy road and went through basic with the other Nerds but i chose a retard MoS and got stuck in the fucking chimp unit. Niggers. Niggers everywhere. The all had that retard gangbanger wannabe shit going on. Join the fucking army when you can't stand people telling you what to do? What the ever living fuck were these nignogs thinking? Long story short, thanks to getting a lazy retard chimp for a battlebuddy I got fucked up during training, Never made it into combat, never made it over seas. No longer has use of my left arm. can't go back to my old job due to pretty much only having one arm. Now have to swallow my pride and sit on my ass collecting checks for being useless like the fucking monkeys that caused this shit. Honestly think I might an hero soon.
>tl;dr the military is full of fucking retards. I was one of them.
>>614244839 Yeah, join the army, get atleast a 101 on the ST of your ASVAB then pass the DLab with I think a 115 and get 35M as your MoS. Big corporations eat that shit up.Almost no one reenlists in that MoS because of the jobs they get offered
9 years in the Air Force, been to 17 different countries, got two associate degrees, finishing baccalaureate in about 6 months, and rolling right into masters. Enjoy your student loans fags.
I work 50+ hours a week so shove your welfare queen bullshit up your floppy sand filled pussy.
You wanna mention the word welfare why not talk about all the civilians on welfare. Less than 1% of the population serves in the military. 23% of the US population in on some sort of welfare or government handout.
>>614246288 Oh there are no Airborne Rangers in Air force! In the Air Force! No there are no Airborne Rangers in the Air Force! In the Air Force! They just fly up really high then they crash and burn and die. There are no Airborne Rangers in the Air Force!
what is your specialty code? what do you consider "work"? sitting at a desk and using the instant messenger for two hours in the morning, turning some wrenches and screwdrivers for an hour, doing basic ass preventative maintenance, taking your hour long lunch at a diner and getting a military discount, then doing some more "research" on parts and filling out parts requests, putting together another useless powerpoint, and yelling at some E-4 for improper clean-ups doesnt constitute a workday.
Dudes in the military are complete tools. Have no idea what they are fighting for. Come back from duty acting all high and mighty but in reality just a bunch of bitch ass niggers who have to get drunk and take pills the rest of their lives to cope. Fuck you veterans.
>>614247418 Didn't join the military to be a fucking cheerleader. several family members were army, army guard, 1 marine, and 1 navy....everyone said you go to the fucking AF, the don't treat you like shit.
There are no Airborne Rangers in the Navy! In the Navy! No there are no Airborne Rangers in the Navy! In the Navy! They just sail around on boats doing god knows what with goats! Oh there are no Airborne Rangers In the Navy!
There are no Airborne Rangers in the Marines! In the Marines! No there are no Airborne Rangers in the Marines! In the Marines! They just right on Navy boats and they probably are the goats! No, there are no Airborne Rangers in the Marines!
There are no Airborne Rangers in the Peace Corp In the Peace Corp! There are no Airborne Rangers in the Peace Corp! In the Peace Corp! They just sit in foreign lands smoking dope and holding hands! There are no Airborne Rangers in the Peace Corp!
There are no Airborne Rangers in the Coast Guard! In the Coast Guard! There are no Airborne Rangers in the Coast Guard! In the Coast Guard! ... Wait... What the fuck is the Coast Guard?
>>614239477 Marines are 99% brainwashed killers by trade, and may be chill, but can snap in an instant. Nothing against them or the organization personally, but it is true. Other military branches are fleshed out with pretty cool guys and gals. Often not mature enough for war, though.
>>614239904 >>614239477 Military is the upper cut of american men. Usually the most physically and mentally capable people. Thousands apply every day around the U.S., but only a few are accepted for a multitude of reasons. So, when people get rejected, they turn and make fun of the club they can't join or got kicked out of in basic.
>>614249443 Last statistic to come out of the recruiting command is that 1 out of 7 people that walk through the door are disqualified in the initial 15 min interview. MEPS disqualifies about 50% of the remainders.
>>614239477 The military culture is one of cuts above (unless you're black of course) it's generally all about setting a standard. You either made it or you didn't and a lot of people don't like that. Blacks in the military have a better chance for promotion than whites, because they allow a second sweep of the top of their scores equal to the percentage number that were eligible to promote. It's why you run across some really dumb black SNCOs
>>614244073 no on the An-hero for a second. Check out Wounded Warrior program. Call them at your first chance tomorrow. Tell them about yourself. You're going to meet and hang out with some great soldiers and good people.
>>614247130 What you don't know, is military vets are all around you, and they're helping hold the delicate fiber of our society together with what they learned in the military. One, is not to give up.
>>614250043 How the fuck do you get disqualified from the military? Seriously. I went in hung over as fuck, got like a 92 or something like that on the asvab. Went to meps and the hardest thin they had me do was walk like a fucking duck while crouched in a room full of other faggots doing the same shit. The pilots test I took was easy as all shit. I honestly don't see how anyone fails out unless you just flat out can't do anything remotely physical or your mentally retarded.
>>614250873 Know about it, don't care. My pride and a nigger ruined my life. Stop trying to be Mr Whiteknight here. When a person says they want to off themselves, let 'em. If they say "I'm gonna jump" you tell them "Do a flip."
When did you realize the military is nothing more than just another cult, /b/?
>approach you on the street or in recruiting stations with promises of money, benefits, and glory >never tell you about what you'll be subjected or how you'll be manipulated into basing your entire identity on your role in the organization >indoctrinate their recruits into believing they're joining the most noble organization in the world >once a recruit signs a legally binding document forfeiting their civil liberties, they are taken to a hotel where they are watched to ensure they don't run away >the next day they are taken to a training facility where they will be told how to be an efficient worker >at basic training the recruit's sense of identity is broken down so that they base their entire identity around their membership in the cult >recruits are taught to blindly follow the orders of the leadership hierarchy, and are brainwashed into believing it was their idea to do so
>different branches are taught to view the others as inferior; i.e., members of the Air Force are told they're smarter than Marines, Marines are told they're tougher than soldiers, and every other branch thinks the Navy is a bunch of faggots >this manufactured infighting causes the members of each branch to become more loyal to its chain of command >everyone is forced to dress and look the same way, and their sense of privacy or control over their environment in their tightly packed communal quarters (dormitories or barracks) is non-existent >sentinels stand guard at the entrances of dormitories to make sure no one leaves the building, and if they do manage to escape they'll be trapped behind tall, barbed-wire fences >members of the cult are relentlessly insulted and cajoled into doing chores for their instructors >as part of the cult's mind-control techniques, recruits must sit through hundreds of hours of classes on military history, rules, and customs >by the end of basic training, the effects of the reprogramming will be cemented in the recruits' minds, as they will proudly sing their branch song, carry out any task asked of them, and viciously attack anyone who questions the military's actions
Anyone who willingly joins the military, is no-better than anyone who willingly joins a cult.
I spent 9 years in the Marines. 3 combat tours in Iraq. I graduate from an RN program in 3 weeks. We're not all retarded. Many come from the stereotypical broken home. I see plenty of people of /b/ throw out the "welfare queen" slur. Truth is, military pay is shit. The benefits are sub-par. I joined the military out of a desire to serve my country, I felt obligated to do so. I joined the Marines to kill bad guys, I got to do so. I've gone from dirt poor growing up to making $100K a year (soon). I'd do it all again in a heartbeat. The best sonofabitches I know are Marines and Navy Corpsman.
>>614253481 >>sentinels stand guard at the entrances of dormitories to make sure no one leaves the building, and if they do manage to escape they'll be trapped behind tall, barbed-wire fences This is bullshit. It's to keep others out that would harm us. The door is locked from the inside, not the outside - non military detected
>>614253612 Congrats bro, I plan on joining myself in a few months. Any tips? I don't want to end up behind a desk for five+ years. Is Recon at all doable or will I again end up behind a desk when I drop out?
This shit is a slap in the face to all those brave men and women who seek to protect us. It also shows how weak and yellow the mods and admins and our liberal government really are. This puke has spewed hate speech against the United States Of America and his thread is still here? I am actually so sick and tired of the mamby pamby policies which have weakened our Country. Do you think the world is laughing at a king liar who draws lines in the sand? Now some will say, oh you are just blaming obama. No I am blaming all his gutless wonders and those so called Americans who support and cover for his in ability to be a Commander and Chief. If he were out to protect the people of America, he would stand up and make it clear, this kind of edgy trash is treason and sedition seeks to harm America and should be removed. Oh wait this is the same weakling who says he has an agreement with a country who wishes to destroy us, Iran. What side is he on? He himself is one of the greatest threats to all that has made America great, with his liberal supporters who have done all they can to undermine the values, ethics and standards which have made America great. This is again a slap to the face of true Americans and another example how obama has shown our enemies how weak we have become due to him and his followers.
>>614254213 Just don't get hurt. Warm up always, stay hydrated and stay in shape. Listen, do as you're told in all things (unless what you're told is illegal, immoral, against regs, or is just plain flat wrong and you're ready to prove it) so, read and understand all the regs that pertain to you.
Military. It's essentially a declaration that you've lost the game.
Think about it. The power of free will and you *still* settle for slavery. Wonderful, no?
From an early age, you're influenced by your environment. Your parents (or lack of), teachers (in some manner, shape or form) and other mentors can help steer your life in a direction, whichever direction that may actually be.
However, during all of this, if you're still alive and have most of your bodily functions, there are a whole world of opportunities available to you. Especially in this day and age of technological marvels and the wonders of the Internet to provide information (and, of course, misinformation.)
The military should not even be an option, at this point, because not only is there enough information to suggest that joining it is only for those who've allowed themselves to be brainwashed by a military-industrial complex keen on retaining what power they have left ... but there is also enough information available for people to make their own decisions on what they'd like to do, instead.
Still, people join. They wish to be broken down and remoulded in somebody else's image.
This is a sign of weakness. Of allowing one's self to be influenced and corrupted by those with power and ambition. Essentially, those who join the military are no-better than mindless sheep.
>tl;dr: Join the military? You're a faeces-flinging, irradiated, nuclear-powered rhesus monkey who enjoys others making decisions for you.
>>614254213 Antone can become Recon, if they pas the qualification test. However, a gun job would be an easier transition into recon. You could go infantry, grunt, and be a rifleman, machine gunner mortar man, etc. Or you could go combat supoort and be tanks, artillery, or LAAD. I was a stinger gunner/LAAD gunner. We had a couple of guys go recon, but you need to be a hoss. It's no joke. The biggest problem with combat jobs is that they don't translate into the civilian sector, unless you contract overseas. Several of my buudies are doing so. I've turned down 2 jobs in Afghanistan because I want to finish my RN program. If you're going Marine, get really good at pull-ups and running 3+ miles. On average we'd run 20 miles in 4 days, one day at the pool. Pull-ups are your money-maker. My fat ass could knock out 20+ so it helped me out a lot. GET THE GI BILL and then use it, seriously. Save all the cash you can, don't buy a fucking Mustang or a Camaro. Listen to your battle-proven NCOs and they'll teach you right.
>>614255359 I like your mentality, but everybody has to sell out at some point. As far as I know, I got a free education, motivation to work hard, and managed to escape with my dignity (unlike most in the military). It's not all losing if you know what you're doing.
>>614254213 I can almost guarantee you wont make recon. Besides if you were a real badass youd do Marsoc. But most dont do that in the first couple years. Be a radio operator. They get all the bitches. Theyre the best
>>614255359 --Tell me the terrific job where you don't do what others tell you to do? -- Tell me the job that pays you to stay in great physical condition? -If you own your own company, often you have more bosses than you will ever have in the military.
I was going to play baseball in college. Tore rotator cuff. Joined army. Went to Afghanistan. Now I go to college cause its paid for. Fair trade in my opinion. I still tested high enough to get into a university. Most people join for action and adventure, not because we're too stupid to do anything else. Some of the smartest people I've ever met were military.
Freedom of Speech. People who hate the military can say so. censorship is a slippery slope towards totalitarianism. Many who serve are there defending these people's right to say shitty things about them.
>>614256697 10 years towers and antenna construction - Air Force E&I, been all over the world building towers and antennas, laying cable, cat 5, phones, security systems -Best damn job in the military -bar none!
>>614257304 This is a job with real-world practical application. My younger brother was an ET in the Navy, he could continue to work in that field if he wanted to. I haven't seen many state side jobs that require knowledge on using Stinger missiles.
You really can't generalize people in the military - in the United States at least. There is a ridiculous amount of people in the military and everyone varies wildly.
I scored a 92 on my AQFT and spent 14 years in the USMC. Started out as a 0311 because I wanted to be in the shit. Went to MART straight out of SOI and then to BRC, got that oh-so coveted 0321. Used TA to earn a dual BA in political science and international financing along with a conversational understanding of Pashto, Farsi, and literary proficiency in Dari. Laterally transferred to 0211 after three pumps to Iraq. EAS'd a few months ago after fourteen years.
For a supposedly brainwashed, mindless corporate minion, I like to think I did alright for myself.
Of course, then there are guys who enlist, stay in for two years before getting kicked out, and abuse the shit out of the system.
>>614257923 yes, but the leadership and discipline he'll learn and have will be useful in a variety of career fields. It'll bleed over into his education in higher paying jobs. He for damn sure won't be calling in sick ever week - and he'll show up with the right attitude to get the job done. --any job.
>>614247130 We know what we're fighting for. Honestly, myself and the guys I worked with would have been happier if we were told that we were going to Iraq to pillage and take their oil. No problem. That's easy. I'd put $20 on just about any WW2 veteran could kick your punk ass. Imagine some 80-year-old man skull fucking you. Because you're some bitch hiding behind a computer screen.
>>614255442 Thanks for the heads up man. I'll really consider it. I do endurance running easy and my mile time right now is under 6 minutes but I can only do about 3 pull ups right now! Gonna start today.
>>614261188 Indeed. My Battalion augmented the Army's 2nd BCT of 1st Cav, so there was a lot of 'fancy' shit, but we still had to up-armor our humvees with our own funds. Some of us even welded sheet metal onto the doors and along the bottom. Felt like we were fighting in a completely different century compared to today.
>>614261882 Good luck! I recommend joing the military, but only join the Corps if you want to be a Marine. The only way to get better at pull-ups is to do more pull-ups. Remember, Chesty always gets one.
>>614261887 I only went to Falujah once in 2005. We were doing a convoy security mission from Al Asad to Ramadi and back. Got the job to push on to Falujah one night. Buddy of mine was a comm Marine attached to EOD in Falujah of 2004. Says it was no joke.
>>614262199 Fucking hell, these demons. I was the "bomb-boy" for our convoys. I found a couple of IEDs, never any of these though. No shit, these things would fuck up an up-armored door, if close enough. Supposedly, much of the velocity was lost after a few meters.
>>614262199 I saw a lot of EFPs being used as IEDs around Fallujah, one of them trashed a Bradley. But they weren't as common as howitzer shells being used as IEDs. I never saw any coalition forces using them, though.
>>614262138 Truth, but they always overstate the number to the media that U.S. kills, until Al Jazeera lost so much credibility from taking their stupid reports that no one would take them seriously anymore
>>614262649 I won't embellish. I was tasked with the units surrounding the city, I wasn't in the thick of it like 3/5. We did a lot of battlespace shaping during the operation but there wasn't a lot of room-clearing for me. It wasn't a joke for sure, though.
