Joining the military with the express desire to be assigned to "Top Secret" projects is likely not to turn out the way you want it. I'm pretty
sure that the Aussies run their security pretty similar to ours (as we have joint classifications) and ours isn't that exciting. If you get the
SpecOps job you want you WILL be read on to a high level clearance, but that really doesn't mean anything. All intel sections and sensitive projects
work on need to know. You might have the clearance, but if you don't need to know to do your job, they don't tell you.
Clearances above Top Secret are organized into compartments. You might get a TS/SCI clearance that allows you to be eligable to look at pretty much
anything, but only be read on to a specific compartment. You don't have free access.
Just because I am read on to a few compartments doesn't mean I can request documents about Roswell or Area 51 or chemtrails. I know better than to
If you want to join the military, cool, but do it because you want to join not for some ulterior motive, and don't be disappointed if you never get
assigned to any black projects. I signed up as a tanker, no chance of going SpecOps and only clearance enough to know that I wasn't allowed to know
a lot about the tank I was working in. I got assigned to a project simply because they had a position that needed filled and I needed a job. No
super special selection process, and I'm not a freemason or a skull or anything. I'm not even a member of the Y. Just a citizen with a clean
record that was in the right place at the right time.
Oh, and the Army doesn't microchip you. You can refuse vaccinations. We drink city water. Its not freakin' 1984 just cause you join up. All that
is a load of crap from people who never served and like to listen to themselves talk. In my opinion anyway, but since I am currently in the Army and
have been for the better part of a decade, I think its pretty informed.
The Aussie tankers are good guys, a lot of fun to work with. Crazy as hell.
