>>27782450 Made me rich for a 24 year old, so once I hit civie life again I've been able to take opportunities I wouldn't have had the cash to do otherwise. No more than a semester of college which was a waste of my time, and now a business owner doing two jobs I love.
>>27782834 The sad realisation that every job has the same upsides and downsides. You're also going to have cool times, boring times, and be required to do pants on head retarded things because your bosses are forced to meet demands that are pants on head retarded and everyone is too afraid to say it is pants on head retarded because then they aren't forwarding change or aren't team players.
Also, that just doing your job is usually enough to be celebrated because most people are incapable of doing that.
And that if you can do your job in spite of pant on head retardedness you'll be celebrated.
Unfortunately, if you leanr how to create and enforce pants on head retarded rules you'll become a leader.
going to graduate in 2018 as a pharmacist but contemplating becoming an officer and doing 20yrs just because of how bad the market is getting. Wanted to since HS but got sucked into the college meme by family Yes or no?
I live in Canada and I'm trying to get a job up north mining for $115,000 a year but I would rather die from a bullet in my head then suffocation or getting crushed. Both jobs will be hard on my mind and body, just for different reasons.
>>27783433 I was enlisted, but I would say try the job market first, then go officer as a fall back. The officer experience is far better than being an enlisted plebian, but experiences may vary depending on your branch and job. The military is no safe haven from retardation and politics, but people are at least held to a little bit of a standard. Just know that even as an officer, if you're new you're as much of a boot as the fresh privates. Lean on your experienced NCOs and learn how to deliver as a leader. All else is secondary.
>>27783578 That is what I'm thinking as well. I'd be 24 when I graduate and have a contact to get in but If I do get laid off I'd like to do my 20yrs while I'm still young. I haven't heard of many officers entering at 30 and I assume that could hinder a career.
A & B are the same level, different benefits that aren't listed.
It says daily rate 6 hours or more because you can get paid in two increments: 6-24 hours of service (pay as listed) or less than 6 hours service (half of what is listed, a half day's pay)
Each rank has four pay raises, one for each year you are at that rank. Motivation for you to keep training and advancing.
Corporal A is Corporal, Corporal B is Master Corporal, since it is an appointment not a rank.
Specialist pay is general only for reg force guys, when you get certain trade qualifications, like for example, my brother in the navy got a "underwater scuba ship repair course" (cannot remember the real name), which entitled him to one level of specialist pay.
This mufucka speaks the truth. I was a reservist back in the late 80/early 90's (yeah, old as fuck, get over it), and we got $32/64 back then. Also no direct deposit - pay sgt came out with 2 corporals with C3 SMG and a box full of cash.
I no longer worship military specifications, methods, or training as being the best. It's kind of amazing how slowly the US army catches on to viable technologies and gets rid of shitty ones.
>be me >Iraq, 2007 >everyone carrying black rifles >dressed in UCP >platoon is laying in a field setting up an "ambush" >some Iraqi from the road 400 meters away shouts "Hey mistah, you wan' chocolate?" >MFW
>>27782810 This. I hate people I beat my dick mercilessly I drink just about every night and I smoke now. The majority of the jokes I make are extremely offensive to anyone outside my platoon because they are all about rape, suicide, and pedophilia. Overall I've become a worse person.
