>>25882896 >rent paid for >food paid for >get paid every month >gain valuable skills depending on your job >looks good on resume >free college credits from boot camp and technical school for your job Yup. I just swore in today. Not for army though. Shipping out in 1-3 months.
>>25882979 Going in the Air Force. My job will be in electrical engineering working on the planes. So a lot of mechanics. I work retail currently, so happy to leave. I live in a bad town full of tweakers and drug addicts. Their presence alone is depressing and choking.
>>25882979 i dont know man but shit. Ive always excelled in everything I did, i just feel like ican be doing better with my life. I stepped down just because I didnt feel like dealing with some schmuck that barely had a clue with what he was doing and calling himself my boss. I had no respect for him. But I have no real applicable skills that I can use for a better job, not enough to convince a potential employer anyway.
i just feel like there's something better i can be doing, something that'll take care of me, and any family I somehow manage to build considering i find a woman dumb enough to fall for me.
Shit man, Airforce? Electrical engineering? You have any skills before this in that? All i'm good at is looking at shit, figuring out how it works, and making it fucking work. I figured out my companies software by myself and utiilized it to get my job done and enhance productivty and sales. I still have access to shit that could fuck my previous employer up three ways to sunday but i dont bother because fuck it.
i dont give a shit about much more than just making a decent life for myself, maybe a family, maybe making my family look at me and go "Holy shit look what this guys done".
Robot life is getting old and im getting older. I've still got youth on my side and im in the prime of my life and doing nothing with it other than shitposting, vidya and booze. I dont want to be some loveless schmuck in a trailer home working a shit job barely paying bills. Give me a mountain home off the grid, going into town for the occasional taco bell binge and some good ganja and im happy. But in the end I want to feel like I've done something. Turned people around, got people out of some shit, gave someone a better life. Know what I mean?
>>25883231 Depends on your job and how dumb you are. Combat based jobs like infantry will increase likelihood; Motor T operator can as well. But even if you're doing a job like that in a combat area, a little common sense goes a long way. Still, shit happens.
But do take into account that most military personnel (especially now during a time of drawdown) don't even deploy. I've seen 20 year enlisted men retire without ever deploying once in their careers. But then again, I've seen many grunts who've seen more than their fair share of getting shot at, so I suppose it's a toss-up; depends on what you want out of it as well as a game of chance.
>>25883685 Nothing happens in the coast guard though
I might have to fire a couple warning shots at some drug smuggling guatemalans, maybe.
Shit man, theres kids out there who are having to strap funky ass explosives to their body and charge into stores and shit. Like, kid ass kids. not 18 year olds, i mean kids who barely sprouted a couple pubes kids. lil fuckin 12 year olds who had some jihadist motherfuckers point guns at their family and said "Put this vest on, go stand in that crowd and push this button or we kill your family with a dull serrated bread knife". that shit is happening, and theres people out there suffering for it. Might not look like us or talk like us but fuck, they just want to eat, work and fuck like the rest of us and this is the shit they gotta deal with.
If i spare ten of the little motherfuckers from dealing with that im happy. give some of them a chance you know.
>>25883820 >implying you're lack of knowledge of the history and culture of the Middle East will help anything as long as you just shoot some folks >one uneducated motherfucker with a gun doesn't make shit of a difference
>>25883223 M8, join the Air Force/Navy/Coast Guard and work in a technical field. Ships engineers do some really cool shit, and it's basically a get-out-of-robothood-free card. The money is better than a lot of private sector wage cucks make, and the lifestyle is actually pretty comfy. For a young guy going it on his own, it is one of the best choices you can make.
>>25883963 I dont have any real experience in any techincal aptitude other than knowing how to build my own PC that can run skyrim with all the mods on ultra. Im a pizza maker man. I can slap the shit out of some doughs and make dank ass pizzas. And do other shit on the side.
Besides airforce/coast guard sounds comfy, Comfy is kind of what I want to get out of. Even if I die in the process. As long as my death causes some kind of major universal chain of reaction effect that makes some shit happens i'd be content.
I mean i'd rather be alive, fuck a hot ass blonde daily in my mountain cottage like anyone else would but, i wanna be more than the guy that makes some dank ass pizzas.
>>25883685 My nigga >>25883779 Being on a larger USCG vessel (210', 270', 378', NSC) can be a pretty sweet gig. Your patrols aren't as long as the ones the Navy does, but if you play your cards right it can basically be a series of drunken port calls. These days they are very touchy about anyone under 21 drinking anywhere, but for anyone of legal age it is a bretty gud time. Every coastie I've met with time on bigger boats has some kickass stories about these units.
>>25884117 Police academy is something I thought about alot.
Fuckin 2 year criminal justice degrees though. Don't want to do schooling, want to get out there and do some shit.
Granted I could have done that 4 years ago when I was saying the same shit and have accomplished some shit by now. But it's 4 years later now.
I dunno, im not afraid of gettin lil boo boos, cut up and muddy. Shit I call that getting some work done. If I don't feel like I need to take a long ass shower with extra soap I haven't actually worked.
fuck anyone know my feels and can steer my dumb uneducated ass the right way? Maybe not that dumb but just unguided.
>>25884054 I went through basic late last summer, we had a guy in my training company who has 31. I was 24 at the time, and I was one of the older guys in a company of about 100, but 27 isn't unheard of. Also, if the Coast Guard doesn't have a slot for you the Navy will. No offense to the squids, but they are a much larger service and they will work to find a place for you. Employment history doesn't matter much. T. Puddle Pirate
>>25884153 If you can build a PC and run mods on Skyrim, you can learn military IT. Honestly, I met a guy who got into working on the fire control system for a ships' 87mm gun because he liked working on automotive stereo systems. Its a good field, if I had any skill or aptitude towards it I would probably go into it. Can't say if it makes a serious difference in the world, but being able to hit a target at a several miles away with a flying chunk of metal is a cool ability.
>>25884554 I mean, you're getting told that because it's true. You can go to OCS once you're enlisted but it's a lot harder and you can only pick from jobs academy fags and ROTC nazis didn't want. The pay, benefits and work for officers is simply better.
If you can't hack college, enlisting still isn't a bad option. There's a lot of enlisted guys I have an incredible amount of respect for who've done well for themselves.
>>25884545 I swer m8, it's ridiculous. You work a gig like that for a few years, get out into the civilian world with a security clearance, and the military industrial complex will go to bizarre lengths to shower you with money and blowjobs. All you have to do is know how to read.
I thought I might be too big for the chairforce, I thought they only liked skinny manlets and i'm 6'1 200lbs. Not to mention the fact they stick you where they need you. You could be a mechanical genius in automotives but if they need radio operators you're a radio operator.
I dunno broski im pretty lost as is, I haven't bothered keeping up with my own personal fitness and put on like 20lbs of pizza wings burritos and booze. Haven't been able to land a job in manufacturing or construction. Right now its making mad tips and finding a way not to be bored on days off.
if itll give me direction, I'll ditch the wings and booze and get my shit back in order a bit before I enlist, But if you think chairforce is the best go, i'll see that's the first recruiter I see.
>>25884419 >tfw i couldn't get a 25 series because dad still had a green card for security clearance >tfw i see shaniqua get 25U only because her nig parents here both born here. >tfw shaniqua couldent pass PT test and was kicked out.
>>25884801 I didn't, I just showed up and took it. Mechanical knowledge was some stuff with wrenches? and electrical was basic circuit knowledge. If you do not know anything about those I'd study for those sections. I got away with knowing nothing since I'm a woman.
>>25882896 does the nypd accept army veterans? because im thinking of going into the us army as infantry or MP, and when i do my 4 years i want to become a cop. or should i become a truck driver? my landlord is one and he said that truck drivers make good money. and he might be able to help me out to become one. help me out phams
>>25884821 I'm a Coastie, but Air Force is a good branch to be an enlisted man. They do have a reputation for attracting auschwitz survivors, but a lot of that is just memeing. You aren't far off of height/weight regulations, although you'd need to get into decent shape to get past basic training.
Obviously I'm partial, but personally I think that Coast Guard/Navy is the way to go. If nothing else, they have the best duty locations. If you're thinking about it, shop around a bit and don't rush into any decisions. Once they have your name on paper you can usually sign up for more time, but it's much harder to sign for less time.
>>25885086 I know a guy who is basically living that life right now. He's halfway to retirement with a full pension, his plan is to wife up his blonde nympho girlfriend, move back to his home state and raise cows in a semi-mountainous area. I like him, but he's a huge fuckin Chad, no way around it.
>>25885163 What is your irst choice? I know some airmen and some army cunts ive talked to a couple sailors and all say kinda the same thing that their jobs are alright or that they feel like their missing something or that they want more so the marine corps is the fuckin way to go man
>>25884873 I've got two possible end goals. The first is I just stay in the police force for a couple of years, pay down my student loans, and then go on to law school and use my time on the police force as a bullshit story. The other is that I join the FBI eventually because I've always wanted to be a counter-intelligence agent. I'm pretty sure my time on the police force will be hellish if I get in because I live in a degenerate liberal city and I see on facebook all the time the vast amount of niggotry that's committed and how much hatred there is for cops (being facebook friends with the enemy can be helpful).
>tfw we have mandatory draft >tfw didn't get accepted and only told I might get drafted Probably because of my eyesight and not being particularly fit. And now I haven't heard anything since 2012. Meanwhile they let much girls in since draft is now mandatory for them too. Standards are also lower for them. So I am a even more failure than most robots. Since I've seen many robots in the military.
>>25885206 >Joining the marines during peacetime Nah, famalam bad call. You really want to enlist and spend four years on barracks duty? The reason people feel like they missed something is because the American military is a massive institution, and most people involved play a small and not terribly important role. Spending your time doing menial bullshit in the marines isn't going to be markedly better than doing menial bullshit in the army, except that you get to circlejerk about how elite you are. >inb4 we are still at war The intensity of conflict we are currently engaged in is very different than what we were doing ten years ago.
>>25885347 Your totally right man but the sense of belonging that comes from the circle jerking is what makes it worth it atleast for me i love waking up and knowing im a marine theres alot behind that so please excuse the moto boner
I went Navy. I ship Feb 21 to bootcamp. Went into the technical field. Getting E-4 after 10 months of navy school. Then I get to go on a submarine. I had to do 6 years though. Kind of scared. Really good benefits and money though.
>be robot in army >stuck in garrison 0 deployments >esentially a fucking janitor >sweep literally everywhere >train for no reason despite nondeployable unit >miserable fuckboy details >garbage ass pt that doesn't even keep you fit >be in combat mos so you will hardly ever see or interact with any females
I'm trying to save you a few years of your life and body ache, op. Just join the navy or air force.
>>25888178 Army minimum PT is bullshit and you have to go to the gym if you really want anything besides a few miles of running. You could always request deployment but I was in during 09 and you could still do that, maybe still if you look for it. >be in combat mos so you will hardly ever see or interact with any females Good, nothing but a bunch of barracks rats and can't do shit during deployment.
