With the way GB treats its armed forces draging old ex service men through the corts when they have only done there job, im surprised anyone would join.

You know its strange. I saw a painting once of the, if memory serves, the Gloucestershire Rifles.......called "Final Charge". Great work of art and recruiting tool for the type of man needed. I also gained an erection.

I think every recruitment advertisement is BS.. They show you doing all kinds of cool highspeed stuff, when in reality, it is usually nothing like that. ONCE in a while you will do some of the things that you see on tv, if your in the infantry. When I was in (Infantry) we cleaned weapons, mowed grass, picked up trash around the barracks, sat around doing absolutely nothing, or pretended to be doing something. I guess it also depends on the unit you are in.

I am sure seals and other special forces get to do much more cool stuff.

Something so elegant about it, even though it's purpose is an ugly one.

Police calls ,hanging in the motor pool all day instead of training,filling out the forms you filled out before for parts that haven't come in,and our time is wasted on the daily "mission".
BLAH!
Cav isn't any better fun.
I TRIED to do combat ,hip, pocket, training by offering martial arts or knife skills,but the chain of command but It was always shut down
Shooting once a year, field training where you fight against other units and apparently nobody is determined the winner or we are seldom told.
The military is boring extremely hard work and all but thankless,if you are STUPID enough to want to be combat arms,NO good deed will go unpunished,but F##K up and move up MAY be how things operate.
I don't want to start cussing TOO much I have been warned AGAIN, am a bad monkey so don't get me started on dealing with CIVILIANS after that joy ride...But I m not bitter

The fact that they've tried to stylize and market the job of killing other people is frankly a little disturbing. Compare the connotations implied in this video to actual real life experiences of being in the army and there is a world of difference. When people are being killed and putting themselves forward to potentially being killed, surely we could have a little up front honest?

when i was in the Corps we trained everyday, except on sunday and when i was in med platoon for a broken arm,then we got duty that was kinda like that if you could do it. that was gravy.

when i went to barracks duty, when we weren't on post we were training unless it was our turn to do police duty (cleaning barracks, grounds, vehicles and what have you).

i was gonna go sea duty or fleet, and then recon but the bs got to deep.

Yeah, Join the Army, Learn how to make a bed, Press trousers and polish boots and occasionally shoot at stuff.

If you can fix a bike, you can fix a car, if you can fix a car, you can fix a Tank, If you can fix a Tank you can fix a type 42 Frigate. If you can fix a type 42 Frigate you can probably polish boots. Here's my boots, get polishing...

I particularly liked the "Army of ONE" ads. I remember the first time it came on, we were sitting around and the comment was made "that guy's not an Army of one, he looks like he got separated from his unit"

I would expect an unlimited TO&E makes play time fun. But then, you get environmental rotations, I hear. Which can be fun. And not. The cold/ice one generally includes skiing - fun - but it also includes minimal equipment overnights - 'travel light, freeze at night'. Or 'hey, it's dark, the wind's at 10 knots, it's 20 below...let's all go ice climbing!" which sucks balls. I'm told. Dive refreshers include night dives - fun - specialty equipment deep dives - also fun - but also include going to 80 feet, ditching your gear, and doing a night time free ascent - again, sucking balls. I've heard. So I could imagine it might be a sort of Tale of Two Cities thing.

Personally, I'd have liked to have seen an advert for USAF using the footage of that battalion level JTAC playing the Jimi Hendrix version of the Star Spangled Banner over the Adhan, whilst standing on the perimeter wall.
