>>28623140 I was dead set on naval special warfare until my future stepdad talked me out of it. I was a few weeks away from signing the papers when we had our talk. He is ex 7th special forces with combat tours in Afghanistan 2001-2003. He told me that I was going about it all wrong, and I needed to join the fleet for a bit before I jumped the fence to the fun stuff. Told me to expect at least 12 years' commitment before I would get out. We talked for over an hour about the ups and the downs of everything, and after a few days I decided to go down a different path. His dead-end forestry job in his 50s, his two divorces, and his broken down physique told me everything I needed to know. The only thing that mattered to him anymore was his family, and he spent so long away from them that he could never keep it together. Those cool life experiences aren't worth sacrificing the things that are most important. We'll only be young once. Might as well do something that will matter in my later years.
>>28623221 >>28623196 Fuck off, you are the reason white people and white civilization is fucking dying. You didn't get enough attention growing up so you hung around on these chan boards and let your mind get fucking warped into thinking you wanted something.
>>28623259 When I was younger my mother was convinced I had bipolar disorder which I was falsely treated for for 6 months. I've heard about people lying about stuff like that but then later getting dishonorable discharged. Also I have some scars that are considered questionable by them. With the bupolarvthingbthry wouldn't believe I never cut myself (which means immediate DQ).
>>28623267 Nice assumptions there guy. I'm >>28623221, my dad took me to a therapist when I was 8 and they diagnosed me with childhood gender identity disorder. He noticed it when I was three and it took him five years for him to think it might not be a phase and he only thought so because one of his best childhood friends told him about similar feelings. Just because it's the newest fuel for the liberal media doesn't mean it's not a real condition.
Also only 1 in 30,000 people is trans, it has nothing to do with white civilization dying. There are far more black, hispanic, middle eastern asian trannies than white trannies anyway. If anything there's more reason to join the military since transsexuals are sterile, the least I can do is serve.
>>28623387 It's not a real thing. Quit believing everything every Jew psychiatrist tells you. Psychology was infiltrated when science institutions were forcibly brought down by gay activists in the 70s.
took whatever the initial tests were when they offered it at my high school, got 95+ on the asvab and something god-tier for the dlab. i love languages so it seemed like a great fit but >lol renounce foreign citizenships
not sure if i made the right choice since i still think about what could have been and i'm a complete loser now. figured it was better to hold on to triple citizenship in case shtf
>grandfather was colonel in army, combat engineer in 'nam >died shortly after I was born >dad lived most of childhood army dependent and therein has his qualms with military >gave me grandfather's rank and jump wings pins >every time I look at them I wish they were mine
I'm going to give it a couple more years and then consider enlisting.

>>28623868 >Why are you so angry? Where is the anger coming from? Because if he (she? it?) was meek and mild about its lifestyle choices, it wouldn't get the attention it wants. It has no other recourse than to lash out at people who do not accept its mental instability as a respectable norm.
>>28624392 Yeah it sucks. Parents always thought I was bullshitting when I complained of knee pain. When I was 16 it led to me partially pulling my tendon and walking on it for a week because, again they didn't believe me.

Not joking - you failed the first of many recruitment mindfucks. Consider yourself lucky that you didn't get any deeper if you were that straight-laced.
The list of shit to catch you on is near impossible for any normal phsyically active person to get through without pinging something. Somekind of surgery, bone fracture or break, whatever. The medical portion is hilariously overblown. I work in insurance and medical credentialing - I'll go ahead and tell you the amount of bullshit they would need to wade through to find something that happened in your less-than-recent medical past is a mountain of fucking information, if it's still even retained anywhere.
The actual question being asked is: "Are you willing to lie to your country, in service to your country?" It's the first of a huge list of unspoken rules that all result in a serious mindfuck when you start considering the internal politics of who gets promoted and who gets sent to what post. It's not as remotely straightforward as it seems
Source: I applied to 2 different branches, failed for medical, then eventually got this same spiel from an ex-recruiter. "Everyone lies."
A little childish I guess, but ever since I was little I wanted to be in the military. A few months after I turned 18 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. It's genetic, have to take pills for life. I looked for other ways to "be /k/" and in some of the threads it was all stuff that I'm unable to do because of my disability. In the threads people talked about getting a pilot license, emt work, and all this other cool shit I wanted to learn. Epilepsy fucked me out of some childhood dreams and the stuff I wanted to do to make me feel like a man. I mean, I feel like a man but this was some crazy stuff my kids would be able to graduate. I'm involved with firearms and I'm able to handle them safely, I'm able to drive my truck, I'm able to go to school. It took me a while to cope with I'll have to settle for shit and won't be able to live out my dreams. I was depressed for a while, the medicine made it worse due to the side effects. Hate to sound like a "poor me" type thing, but I feel like it really fucked me over. I'm a manager at a movie theater and one of the employees has the same type of epilepsy I do, he's hardly able to work. I feel bad knowing we have the same shit, he has it worse and I'm still doing all this poor me shit. I feel a bit cheated to be honest.
TL;DR I'm epileptic and I'm on and off about my feelings towards it.
>>28626031 Transexuality does not occur naturally. It is a mental illness. There were precursors to it, probably all in your childhood and should be fairly obvious to you and your parents in retrospect. They should have realized it and stopped it before their only chance to was in retrospect.
I'm kinda nervous lads. Last year tried to kill myself, but I didn't wanna go on any medication, and I only did therapy kinda stuff for about a week. Am I fucked? I'm fucking brilliant right now, life's swell, but what are the chances of them disqualifying me for the week I spent in the hospital last year???
>>28626844 I dunno I stayed in a ward for a week, I feel as if that's gone down on some kind of record, but I'm not sure if it specified why I was there. If asked about it could I just say I was feeling down and needed a safe space (kek) for a bit? Or will they definitely know that it involved me hanging myself? Fuck I regret doing that.
>>28623140 My dream was always to be an Army Officer, ever since I was a child. All through high school I trained intensely, working out, rucking, keeping my grades up, learning the ins and outs of ROTC and officer selection and such.
But then, at 17, when I got my wisdom teeth removed, I caught C Diff. I'm not sure if that in and of itself was disqualifying, but I never fully recovered, to this day I still have health issues as a result of damage to my gut from that infection. Worse yet, I lost almost all of my hard-earned fitness due to months of weakness and malnutrition. The resulting depression from losing my dream and everything I had worked so hard for ultimately needed to be treated as well and only made it even less likely that I would ever be accepted in to the military.
