ive said this before, im a vet, i know who goes in the military... some maybe innocent at first but they turn eventually. the majority of people in
there are gangbangers, skinheads, lowlife, debt ridden people who give two-*snips* about life and humanity, why else would the army take them...
OH wow thank you, so i'm either a gangbanger, skinhead, lowlife or a debt ridden person? I know you said most of them but it's hardly most of them,
how do I know? I TRAIN THE TRAINEES GOING THROUGH AIT...
All the people joining the Army are kids straight out of high-school for the most part, some are like me and were tired of working a minimum wage job
and some stepped out of a high-paying job to serve their nation!
AND those lowlifes as you call them that come in eventually turn around anyway! that's the beauty of basic training and AIT, we INSTILL values upon
them, the thugs are turned into soldiers with values and morals, their drill sergeants doesn't make them into mindless killers, they turn them into
decent human beings that are TRAINED to kill if it is necesary.
Much happened in Iraq and Afghanistan (and other nations you dont hear about) and is still happening today, they do care about the people there and
they do respect human life, some DON'T but that's the fault of their leadership. (don't start with the child/parent comparisment)
I don't know when you served but the Armed forces today are drastically different, sick people are in every branch of government, armed forces,
police and any other job.
The job of the Armed forces is a VERY stressful (even in garrison enviroments) job and a very DANGEROUS job, and self-perservation is what in the end
decides upon how people act.
The Army has values and so do the other armed services.
Don't you ever compare me and my battle buddies to scum!
