boy am i confused
    #5979076 - 08/19/06 06:59 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

alright.. now im even more confused than i already was..

original plan- enlist for 4 years, then use the G.I Bill to pay for part of my college education AFTER serving

new situation- I got accepted at Toledo University (a mediocre college near my fiance) and am considering going to college first, then going to the army after i go to college for 4 years

any advice at all?

Go to school, then get a job, and start a career. The armed forces suck.

She'll kick you out of the house even if you go to school?

WTF man!

Why is she like that? I understand mothers deserve hella respect, but it sounds like yours is being completely unreasonable and disrespectful of you. I would just confront her one day and tell her "Yo, ma, I know you want me to join the army, but I don't want to. This is my life, and I choose how to live it. I don't want to go fucking kill people and possibly be killed. If you can't accept that and respect my wishes then fuck you, what kind of mother are you?"

I've had several friends in Iraq (Marines) and in other branches. Man, what they do to you is fucking disgusting. They brainwash you and put you through all sorts of shit. It's not like a video game. When you pull that trigger, real people really die and scream in agony. I've seen grown men, warriors, screaming in sorrow and horror over what they've done and over what their life has become.

There are ALWAYS other options man. I wouldn't wish that sort of life on anyone.

Good luck bro.

There's nothing wrong with the millitary. Those saying it sucks are people who have never been in the millitary.

If your mom would rather you take the chance on getting killed -- than you go to college...

Tell her when she's 90 she can't live with you... you'll just put her in one of those stinky old folks homes.

How's that for fuckin' karma, Ma?

Didn't think about that, did ya?

dude.. i know.. this is the first mom i have encountered who WANTS me to go.. like i dont understand this at all.. and she thinks by kicking me out.. it will motivate me to do something with my life (which is wrong)

right now im working on applying to Toledo.. ill get in.. i have amazing grades and test scores, Ohio state is just too expensive.. and then ill talk it over with my recruiter again.

Go to college. Whether you decide to join the military later or pursue a civillian career, you will be happy you did.

at first, I thought this was a coming out thread, I'd support your decision to be gay.... but since you arent...

both plans are good, I'm game for the military first, you stockpile what you earn,
dont let people tell you it isnt much, it's a pretty good deal, the army pays for college, you can actualy attend while serving, you hit bootcamp, go to school
then return for your 4 years... it amy be different now that bush has a war on.

hey man. my brother had no interest [that we know of] in joining the forces until his sophomore or junior year at college. He opted to graduate first, then join the Marines.

If you graduate first, you have the option of going to officer candidacy school and actually being able to go somewhere in the military [even if only for a short period of time], which will result in you not being a private, or whatever the lowest class is in the army, and possibly not having your ass blown to pieces in these useless, ongoing spats.
