Tempted to enlist!
    #1249461 - 01/26/03 06:39 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

The money is really tempting, and the fact the would pay for a small amount of my schooling. But I am incompatable with military lifestyle.

I never thought I would even consider such a thing, but here I am. Maybe I can get assigned to the same platoon as GG or something.  :smirk:

Your giving up something very valuable when you join the military, your own morality. It doesnt matter what you believe about killing and whats right and wrong. Your new moral authority is the U.S government and the messiah George Bush.

If you join the Military, they're gonna make you watch crazy horror movies, and women getting rapped and put drops in your eyes wich will be held open by jagged metel hooks. And you'll be tied into your chair so you can't move, and they'll give you nightly injections so that you forget the whole thing, and all this will be subliminaly implated into your mind, and one day you will find yourself back at the shroomery, but everytime you try to post or reply to a post, you'll get violently nauxious and proceed to vomit everytime, until you no longer have the desire to
be a shroomerite...
THEY WILL BREAK YOU...
Your meals will consist of raw tofu and datura tea....
PLEASE DON'T ENLIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a couple things to say about this post...

Ok, I wouldnt join the militairy, my father was in the navy, and moving around every 3-4 years SUCKS ASS, trust me. Maybe you won't mind it, but what about you kids if you end up having any? and doing drugs is a BIG no-no when your in the military, the punishments are horribly increased (and yet, they can get drunk seems fair right?)

But whats with everyone bad mouthing the millitary? Sure, war sucks ASS, war is horrible, but the people fighting in them don't do so because "Hey! I want to kill people!" its because they want to defend their country.

Who do you thinks hates war the most? The activist who protest the war? The politician who starts the war? Or the soilder who fights in the war?

Think about it.

P.S. and yeah, if your ganna join, I'd wait till AFTER the war with Iraq is over...

There are many positive sides of joining the military.

1. "Free" training in something you could have a career in for the rest of your life like:
Satelite communications and other telecom fields
Electronics
Automotive (diesel)
Aviation (mechanics or flight/ground crew)
Administrative
Engineering
Intelligence

2. Travel. True, you don't get to choose where you go, but the odds are you'll see some pretty amazing places that you might never think to visit in your lifetime. I myself spent 3 years in Panama South America while in the Army... this wasn't on the top of my list of places to go in my life... but I learned a lot while I was there and I'm appreciative of it. In the Army you could end up in exotci places like:
Honduras
Alaska
Panama
Spain
Japan
Korea
Belgium
Norway
Hawaii
Iceland
Turkey
Germany

3. Benifits. The military medical/dental and legal benifits are exellent, period. You get 30 days paid vacation a year... you can't beat that anywhere in corporate America.

4. Physical Fitness. You'll probably never be in better shape your whole life than when in the military. Yes, they kick your ass, but if you stopped to think about it, you'd probably thank them for it.

5. Education. All branches of the military offer the G.I. Bill, plus extra college funds (in the Army we of course had The Army College Fund). Serve your time, and let them pay for your education when you get out. Also a lot of people don't know this, but the military will pay a huge percent of costs for school while your enlisted, so you can go to night school or take correspondance courses for little to nothing.

6. Pride. You can take pride in the fact that you've done something that not many Americans have the balls to do. You can take pride in the thought that you served your country. You can be proud to be part of a brotherhood that exists the rest of your life, weather you stay in the military or not.  If you join the Marines there's a whole other level of pride that your entitiled to that I can't even begin to comprehend or describe.

Negatives:

1. Personal Freedom.  It's true, your movement and activities are severely limited. You must follow their schedule, you have to report every single day. You can't "call in sick", you may go to the doctor, but unless your sent home under doctors orders you must still go to work. If you want to take vacation you have to request it up to 3 months in advance (depending on your command). Your required to submit to drug testing randomly (yeah, random... EVERYONE!). You are required to be vaccinated for LOADS of things... hell, sometimes... MOST of the time you don't even know what the vaccinations are for. In the last few years the military has killed many of it's own people by administering vaccines that were not tested, like Anthrax vaccines and vaccinations against chemical agents.
You basically lose your freedom of choice, the most important freedom of all.

2. Does there really need to be a number 2?
Well, yeah, I guess so... ya can't forget the whole WAR thing. I'm not a fan of the war, but when your enlisted you are required to give your life for "your country", even if it's over something as stupid as petrolium. I was enlisted during Desert Storm, but I will admit I was ready to go to jail if they had tried to send me to Kuwait. I'm not dying over oil, period. I believe in guarding the American Borders, but I don't believe in all these bullshit police actions like Viet Nam, Bosnia, Korea and the Middle East. Fuck That.

I think that's all I really need to say, don't you? It's a huge, and very serious decision to enlist in the military, don't take it lightly.

AIRFORCE, If you enlist in anything go AIRFORCE. Out of all the military branches the enlisted menbers of the Airforce get treated best, and have better opportunitites to take college courses not related to their job while serving. And besides I have seen more hot Air force chicks then I have Navy or Marine :wink:
