Ask your recruiter straight away WHEN DO I GET TO KILL PEOPLE legally as all this creaping about doing it illegally is to much hard work .

My advice is to remember that it is a mind game, especially boot.


this is fact. And unless you really, really enjoy push ups, keep the lips together.

If you start to question anything, remember, some really dopey people got through it, so you will have no problem. You will meet some of them.

I hadn't realised you wanted a lobotomy?

However its your choice but seriously, I would ask myself am I capable of obeying orders from someone treating me as cannon fodder and will I get a decent training so that when I leave (unless you actually love it) I will have a career also outside of the army or whichever service you decide to go into because too many of our ex troops end up on the streets, traumatised and unemployable.

Disagree. Only a small percentage end up on the street or mentally troubled which may or may not have anything to do with being in the military. Majority of Veteran suicides also never deployed. They never saw or did anything.

Thank you everyone. Taking ASVAB wednesday, physical the week after, be off around september.

I am taking a crash course in arithmetic, I suck at that. Someone mentioned MOS 25B, Hell yeah! I need a 95 ST on the ASVAB. Wish me luck.

I may wait a week if I still feel weak in arithmetic by tuesday, they can wait until I am ready, been 32 years, whats a week more or less.

Thanks for the advice guys. This was a actually a big help.

I will post with updates once I take my test. I am off to not smoke and workout. LOL

Yes.

My advice is no.

If you want to be a merc working for the zionist power structure? Sure. Go for it.
Youre cannon fodder.

Wanna be a patriot? Join your state guard/ miltia.

Find an old nam vet to talk to. Maybe an iraq war vet.

When it comes down to it, is youre wyrd. Serve your people or the zionists.

You are a bit older to join. You seem like a bright guy though.

I didnt want to join because Viet Nam was just winding down at the time. I would have gone but didnt want to.

My dad rushed down to join the Navy after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. They grabbed him and stuck him in the Army instead, then put him on a ship for Japan for a land invasion. Im certain he was scared. We dropped the bombs while he was on his way over or I would likely not be born. He got an awesome education deal out of it, and medical training during his service, and never had to kill anyone.

Now I work for a Japanese owned steelmill, that treats me pretty damn good.

My son wanted to join the Marines, and I was worried and attempted to talk him out of it. He was in a truck that rolled over in the mountains, and broke his arm pretty bad. That shut him down at the time, and now he wouldnt even think of joining

I'm a Army vet and I have two sons currently serving in the Army. If you decide to go in the Army, go to one of the Intel schools if you can get a top secret clearance. That's what 1 son and I did. There's a fairly decent civilian job market for analyst with clearances. The Intel folks get treated pretty well and there's normally lots of other schools like airborne open to them. Most Intel people want to sit in the AC and do their work, So there's always room in hooaahhh type courses. After AIT, depending upon where u get stationed, it's pretty much a regular job. No matter what branch you decide on and I cannot stress this enough, everything they promise, get it in your contract. If you r already fairly physically fit and know how to listen, you'll do fine in most any boot camp. Marine boot camp is the most demanding. My son that didn't go Intel even though he had high asvab wanted to do Rambo stuff, so he went infantry and has been bored to death every since. If they are not training or in a combat zone, they r in garrison doing busy work. Mowing grass, painting rocks. I went in right after high school and planned to make it a career, then about 8 years in, the issued me a back injury. That ended that. It can b rough on the body, so make sure to keep your own copy of any injuries. Matter of fact, keep a copy of all of your records. They r notorious for loses files. Good luck in whatever you decide

Get into satalite imagery network engineering or listen to the guy in the post above. Top secret clearances then go to college get your degree and go work for an alphabet agency. Stay out of combat mos branches. Use the military in a smart way dont be cannon fodder. Live long and prosper. Also very important. Join in Texas after the GI bill runs out Texas will pay for 150hrs of college through the hazelwood act for free. So hooah!

I just saw your post. Have you joined? If not, follow advice given and get everything in writing. The recruiter can offer a lot, sometimes, but what really matters is when you get to your MEPS station. The counselors there are the ones who determine and offer you your job choices. If they don't have what you want, don't sign. Walk away.

Best piece of advice:

You are dirt. No you are less than dirt. You are a #ing seed in the dirt. And wetter or not you become a flower, or a #ing tree depends on what you want to be.

Hate doing chores? Good luck flower, you are in the laid out tracks of a lawn mower.

Hate cleaning? Get ready sapling, you are about to get chomped by a stray deer.

Hate excersizing at 2 am? Shut the # up before you get hollowed out by a maggot.

Want to fly that plane? # that, you can't even handle the winter storm you stump!

So I heard you like jumping fences. Now craw under the barbed wire you fuzz ball. We don't hire jack rabbits.


Basically... get ready to feel like you want to quit.

Get ready to stop giving a # about your personal image. Get ready to feel that nagging 80 year old tossing you around like an old sex doll.

What ever you do, don't hate them. And don't show a soft side. Keep your comments in your mind, and hold no prejudice.

If you have any signs of weakness... just try to understand that they are trying to break you in order to fix you.
