    i don't peel potatoes and i guarantee i can do a hell of a lot more pushups than you can.

    you truly are a fuckwit if you think that's all the army is though.

    I didn't say it was easy, but all you have to do is pass a drug test to get in....and these days, they'll let you get in even without doing that.

    It's a fuck of a lot easier to get in to the military than ANY other job field.

    and..uh...there are TONS that do it. Almost everyone you meet is or has been in the military at some point...

    I'd serve if I were desperate and needed 20 grand quickly.

    but I have actual goals though. You know...career plans.

    If they don't work out, i'll probably join you.

    It's kinda hard to talk about promotions, because a lot of people have low promotion points, which is why you'll see specialists in for 5 or 6 years because there promotion points are too high. But then other MOS's have lower promotion points and soldiers get promoted to e5 or e6 in 4 or 5 years. Some people get those cake duty stations and ride the cottails of someone high ranking too.

    The thing you said about the officers is partially true... but... it also depends on what unit you are in. The unit I'm in we have officers that are infantry, who are prior enlisted (meaning they were soldiers than went green to gold). So you can't just speculate and say that every company that is being commanded is by some captain who is only a few years removed from West Point. I have done 3 years of college (before I joined the army) and i know plenty of soldiers who have degrees in the enlisted side of the army but dont' want to go green to gold (or dont' qualify) because they will have to start all over on the officer side. LT's are like the privates of the officer side.

    And you know, I have witnessed both sides, civilian and military, and other than the prospect of getting higher pay, the military just has some advantages and benefits that are just simply undeniably better. Even if you decided to get out of the service, you could work for the Army as a civilian and make shitloads more than most college grads would. The fact that you are eligible for a VA loan, even after you get out of the service so you won't have to go through that whole disheartening process with banks and such (depending your financial situation and/or credit as a civilian). No non military job is touching the army's benefits. None. What job will pay you extra money just because you are married and/or have dependents. The army will pay for your housing, bas, and even COLA if you are in an area where the cost of living is high. Your family can use your gi bill and your family can go to school free while you are in the military also. So, if you are married, your wife could be getting her degree while you are in.

    And I hate when people say, people joined the army b'cuz of this or that or because they have low asvab scores they in the infantry. Are some dumb people in the army? Sure, but there's dumb people everywhere and at every job. The army is not the landfill for uneducated assholes. But being in the army takes a lot of perserverance and the ability to handle stress and pressure and MAKE decisions. True, some of the things are mapped out for you, but so what. A coach maps out plays, but the player still has to execute. What job have you been at where things are mapped out for you? or where you dont' mapped things out? Teachers, salesmen, businesses, every job has some type of goal or plan, so that point is mute.

    I'm not taken sides, just pointing out a few things that didnt' get put out there, because a lot of things about the military are easy. You got people looking out for you, basically taking care of you in some instances, where all you have to do is be where you suppose to be and in the right uniform (is what you get a lot). Hell, some days I've rarely done any work. But a lot of things about the service are hard as hell to adapt to. As far as following orders and dealing with deployments and being away from family. I'm currently in stationed in Baghdad and this is my 3rd deployment.

    And to the kat that said the army lost fallujah... dude, I was with the unit that took over Fallujah, 3rd ID. We were in Biap, and went to Fallujah to restore the peace and then after we redeployed back to the states and handed it back to you guys, you lost control over there again, and some other unit had to help you guys out again.

    good post hash


    and i already told that kid the truth about fallujah

    i wasn't there, but i had to give a briefin' on that city

    and the promotion points thing is why i just switched jobs

    been stuck in a deadend MOS(that's why i'm still an E5), but i'm days away from E6, and i'll be an E7 in 2-3 years[stubby]

    then i drop my warrant packet and i'm set[kat]

    naugh, I'm a 52D that's been cross trained to a 63B

    meaning I'm a generator mechanic, but I work on humvees. I like my job, I roll out on PSD teams and do lil bullshit patrols around the villages around my FOB. I dont' do any of the real shit (like searching homes, etc). I've only been in 5 years, I'm thinking about re-enlisting, but I don't know what post to go to. I've been at Ft. Stewart my whole career.

    You know my boy Willie Baldwin?

    He was a 52D, out of Ft. Stewart, that was over in Fallujah as well. Probably within the same time frame that you served.

    Great career plan? lol....no. And I'm in med school you fucking dunce. 6 years and I'll make more than you can dream of. All the while, I wont have to wear that ugly ass get-up, wont have to be bald, won't risk taking bullets for morons that'll cheat me on my health care once wounded.....none of that shit.

    The military is a great career plan when you're 18 and don't want to actually have to put effort toward school.

    props for that

    i probly COULD eventually go to law school or med school... but then theres the cost of postgrad education, lots of work, more years to wait before you start getting a salary, etc.

    not sure its worth it for me personally, but if u can do it more power to u

    if you actually make it through med school(which i doubt, because you're a fuckin' idiot), you'll fuck up and get hit with a malpractice suit within 6 months of startin' actual doctor shit and will end up with with oprah as assistant fry guy at mickey D's.


    you have no grasp of what military life is actually like.
