I appreciate your machismo, but now is not the time. Ground pounders are detail bitches. Unless you want to earn your masters in landscaping in under 6 months, do something else or wait for another war to start. 11 gangbangs have fuck all of a job to do right now.
>>719972254 I'm tired of trying to convince naive kids how stupid it is to be in the military. You stubborn fuck. The only beneficial thing about it is a GI Bill after a few years of doing retarded shit.
>>719972254 Army. You have way more opportunity to do cool shit than you do in the Marines. Such as airborne, air assault, pathfinder, rangers, special forces, sniper, squad designated marksman, small arms master gunner, the schools go on and on.
As other people already stated, don't. Unless you do it for paying college.
Peaceful times tend to do the same with everything everytime it goes prolonged. That's why you get so much weak ass'd liberal faggots running rampant and you get stuck'd all day doing menial bullshit and getting yelled at by a retarded stupid fuck that had the mental capacity of a toddler.
Go Army, fuck 11b, you'll be a running sandbag that paints rocks all day. You want a cool as fuck job that gives you plenty of opportunities after discharge? Go 89D EOD. I did, best decision ever. It isn't like the "real" Army as in you don't get treated like a fucking retard. You will have respect. School is very difficult but very worth it. Don't be a fucking idiot. Get trained. Ask me anything u want.
bahahaha, how the fuck are you even qualifying that?
If you mean more expendable, you are correct.
If you mean soldier for soldier, I can guarantee an airborne ranger is 1000x more effective than any marine but at the end of the day no one's invincible and even the best motherfuckers can catch a random round and be lights out at the drop of a hat. No need for the dick measuring contest.
Anon, they use numbers not words to score your ASVAB. Are you sure you didn't just spread your cheeks for some stranger who said they were a "doctor" in the alley behind MEPS? This sounds far more likely for a potential marine.
>>719982644 >Plant post >Smack smack smack smack smack >Walk 15 yards >Plant post >Etc. Etc.... >124 fucking times >In full fucking PPE in 110 bullshit degrees Why in the living fuck did I pick 21B? I'll say this, though. For some POG's we drank way more than the grunts
>>719972254 >was inf, went airborne, worked with skysharks and 160th, went to sear school, did air assault, learned ord, did 3rd chem training, went to CBRN school, served 12 yrs, got 3 tours, 42 monhts combat. isnt worth it. >no skills transfer over >simple things in life are ruined for you >all civi's are sheep and are hard to tolerate >youll love guns and stuff that disturbs normies bad. my take >should have taken a job i could do on the outside.
dont get me wrong i had fun here and thee. good bros scary times close calls but over all its like waking up from a dream and after you try to explain it and no one gets it you try to wake others to see the better things that matter more than tv and facebook but all you are to them is a "strange veteran"
>>719984957 i was one of the "army of one" idiots i drank the cool aid by the pitcher about a 2/3 through my second tour i began to wake up...we all did first deploy group was 87 troops now only 9 are alive and are either wheel chair trapped or fucked for life watched bros die, watched innocents die, watched bombing miss drops. the fuck was going on?
all the time on the FOB contractors would blab about we are so fucking dumb for serving meanwhile we protect them they collected 6 figure pay non taxable and lived in way better shelter than us. now im out, vets are treated like shit, the va is fucked up >sure we have done and seen more than..blah...blah but its like getting into a bar fight with a civi....whats the point? he wants to brawl and your trained to kill.....the laws are gnna grind your ass because "your more dangerous" but good fucking luck on using any military xp for any job....they ten to look at us like we are autistic or mad men....
if i had known then what i know now....id have spiked myself with weed acid or something and got barred from the mil in the first place i had a way better career path before i had to get all "tough guy" god i was fucking stupid so many things are never the same...even my family is weird about me coming around to visit.
I try to be proud of my service but living with the nightmares the sleep loss and the way the world approaches and treats us....it just wears the spirit down. i gave everything i had short of my life. was wounded twice now, still waiting for the va to asses my nerve damage, back issues, and apparently i have TBI's and shouldn't have been put back into the fight as soon as i was. waiting in line for benefits and medical gets bad not being able to get my family or any gf to understand hurts....everyone thinks im crazy or just broken. i just have seen the madness that dwells behind the pretty face we put on humanity
There was one op i went on that has stuck with me we went to a opening for a market opening that the coalition had built so the farmers and merchants would be out of the sun. had Jordanians there ANA ect i was helping pass out note books candy ect to kids (one of the few nice things i got to do) 3 kids come over and want to be soldiers to make their father proud >tell them work hard and go for dreams like 20 mins later a suicide bomber let off a vest in the croud >ANA injured Jordanians injured >mostly old men, women, children shredded by blast and debris try and help wounded >cant do much worth shit >still cant take kids screaming today >freaks me out
i was dumb enough and drunk...i spoke of some of my service to my dad pretty sure he felt like his inability to talk me out of serving or sending me to college made my nightmares his fault. i feel like i let him down in all of it. now im just getting by and cant stop with PT and range time on the norm. i guess he worries im trapped in it.
>>719988219 >had no idea my friends and family would bail out let alone the benefits / help we where promised once we had done our duty
hardest pare is making the bridge between the worlds work on the daily.
if i could just show my family im not some monster.....im still me...the kid they knew.... i just have a very different view on live and the nation.
i guess its the feeling discarded and useless now that bothers the most.
>>719988507 thanks /b/ro ya.....when a round passes through your squad leaders head and buries itself in your right shoulder......things are never the same ever......and seeing people turned to what amounts to the consistency of road kill or gazpacho.....your never ready for it......and god if i could only forget.
Congratulations, you scored high on the ASVAB. That's like saying you are king of the retards. The ASVAB is meant to identify basic problem solving skills that barely exceed the IQ of a retarded child.
>>719978989 I served in Afghanistan in 2007. I can confirm that Marines have a bigger sense of pride than any other SM. By far, the worst bunch is the Air Force airmen. They all should be removed from the battlefield, including JTACs.
>>719989561 I think the only ones who are allowed out of the TOC are para rescue. Those guys are the only ones who I would trust when you are landing in a hot zone, got a TIC and have hajis firing soviet mortars.
Those guys could start an IV line in a bumpy ass blackhawk while taking AK rounds.
>>719990484 pretty much combat wise air force is useless they even fuck up smart bombs so they go dumb on drops. but they do have many benefits and tons of time to go to school during service >while in uniform you get financial assist so you can save your g.i. bill >just dont try parading being chair force unless you did something besides drive a desk full time go ord or something.
If you really, REALLY want to do this do it, but if you just want a job, or you just can't get a job near you, get another job besides the Army or the other branches. If you figure out that you don't like that shit half way though, you're going to have an awful fucking time. Getting out of the armed forces is MUCH harder than getting in, anybody can get in, anybody. Another thing you need to consider is how physically fit you are for basic training. Now you don't even have to be fit to pass basic to be honest, anybody can pass basic, not because its easy, (it's not) but because it's impossible to fail if you want to be there, they'll make damn sure of that. If you fail hard on one crucial event, you'll either get it rescheduled, or just move to another training company. Another thing to consider is if you want to see combat, don't join. You likely wont, and that's just how it is. I know people who wanted to see just blood, guts, gore and explosions, and now there stationed in hawaii doing paper work and field exercises setting up tents and taking them back down again. But I cannot emphasize enough, make sure you want this. You're life will change DRASTICALLY weather you want it all the way though, or don't half way though. It's no small decision, think for a couple months.
>>719991255 Yeah, join cav if you love doing shitty training exercises and trying to not stab yourself when you've got a commanding officer who's a month out of west point and doesn't know shit because he slept through his land nav course and are now taking orders from a 35 year old staff sergeant who smokes 8 packs a day, never sleeps and carries giant sized DFAC stolen Red Bull bottles.
>>719972254 I was 63b and saw plenty of shit. If you're going in and not going green to gold, do something that will leave you with a skill set. Unless you plan on doing private contracting afterwards, you're fucking yourself by going 11b.
And you can always cross train in the future. Skip OSUT and get some skills in AIT and then worry about combat "proficiency" afterwards. I use quotations because I was a better marksman/tactician than probably 75% of the grunts I ever met in the Army. It is what you make of it, really.
