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:

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.

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.

I joined the military when i was 17. From my experience i can tell you that you should not join. People in the military are dumb fucks. You will lose all of your rights(some people are ignorant enough to not care). You will be shipped off to kill people whom you will be brainwashed to hate even though they have done nothing to you. You will tap into the most vulgur and sadistic mentalities that humans have to offer. The only reason to join the military is if you have a morbid fascination with violence. If that is the case then you have just admitted that you need counciling.

You get to deal with all kinds of people and at some point you will have to work along side of them, this leads many people to learn to get along with people of differing views (1stimer an obvious exception). Yes you'll have to give up SOME of your rights, but you also know that you will be defending the rights of others.

It's not a morbid fascination with violence just b/c some of us like to make shit go boom. The military has some of the best toys in the world and they pay us to play with them.

The purpose of the military is to kill, conquer, and occupy. Nothing else. In order for this to be accomplished in an organized manner, things need to be done to the individual!

Now, in order to achieve this, the military has to undergo a transformation of that individual through training and the restriction of rights and opinions. This is not a negative, this is a positive. An army of philosophers does not charge an enemy line well. An army of compassionate flower twirlers can't stab the enemy in the chest effectively. This has been established over thousands of years of war.


I can't fathom the hatred that goes on for the military from so many members of these forums. The only excuse I can come up with is if you are an honest pacifist. Otherwise, you must see the need for a military. If you see a need for a military, what matter is it in the way a soldier is trained to do his duty?

The only reason to join the military is if you have a morbid fascination with violence. If that is the case then you have just admitted that you need counciling.

Or want to defend your country.

And they say the army brainwashes you. Put the mushrooms down, please.
