After seeing your posts in OTD, I think you're just the kind of guy Bush is looking for. Do it.

Download this song by TSOL. It's about a young man who doesn't know what to do with his life and is considering the military.

You will have to follow every order, kill people, and you might just die. Dude, don't listen to any of the war protestors, if you can't find a job and need money to support yourself and your family then join.

I would never do it. Are you sure you know what you're getting yourself into? The army isn't just a job, it's a long commitment with harsh exercise, no drugs, maybe murdering people and maybe even dying yourself. You should research it a lot more before you join it.

I don't know about the "no drugs" part. I mean, you get drug tested, but that will mainly just detect weed and opiates. I've met military guys at raves who were rolling their asses off, and they can get away with it because E only stays in the system for 3 days. And then there's psychedelics, which they don't even test for. And of course the drinking age is lower in the military than it is for civilians.

Well, ok, by no drugs I meant drug testing. No drugs that you couldn't do on probation, and you definitely can't get caught. There's harsh penalties, and a dishonorable discharge is a very shitty thing to have on your record.

I have a friend who joined the military, he hated it and left his post. However, he somehow talked his way into getting an honorable discharge instead of a dishonorable discharge, partially because they just wanted to get rid of him. He says the military is one of those things that if you're not committed, you're going to regret joining later.

I'd just stick with working at a supermarket until you're 18, then maybe one day working at a gas station, finally becoming manager.  :shocked:

I have a friend who got kicked out of the military for ecstasy. It showed up as amphetamine.

Sucks for him. The drug tests are random, so you still take a risk when you do E, but since it's only in your system for 3 days, the odds are usually in your favor. Too bad your friend wasn't a fighter pilot, cuz then they'd expect him to have amphetamines in his system.

What percentage of people who join the army actually want to go to battle when they sign would you say?

I have a friend who got out on a medical discharge who said he wishes he could've gone to Iraq. Then again, I think if he had gone, he'd be eating those words.

Back then in 88 i would say 0.05% who signed up did so to go to battle, basically it was the sucicide cases who in their spiral downward wanted to kill or be killed. After 911 i really don't know. The percentage could be higher now, 18 year olds make great toy soldiers, they hear the war drums beating on tv and think they are real. My advice to anyone thinking of joing is join only when 30 year olds are joining in large numbers.
