    Default Soldiers or Ex-Soldiers look here!

    I've seen a lot of people posting about experience in the military, some still are some being ex-military. The posts in the "disgusting thing you ate" topic made me post this one (seems nobody likes rations eh?).

    So, who here is currently or at one point in time, military? Doesn't matter what element; air, land, navy, all working for the same thing.

    If so, where did you serve at? What job? Anything interesting to tell? I'll go first I guess:

    I spent one year as a reserve artillery gunner. Had enough of that joke and switched to the Regular Force. Am now administration with the Royal Canadian Dragoons in Camp Petawawa, they're an armoured recce regiment (moved all the tanks out west and east).

    I will most likely be going to Afghanistan either next year or in 08. Either way I have been told I will be going and I can't wait.

    I have aspirations to become an Officer one day, but one of my aspirations may temper that. I am torn between Military Police (NCM, not officer, cause NCM's are out arresting ppl not behind desks like MPO's), Intelligence Officer and possibly a MARS Officer (basically commanding a ship).

    I have lots of time to think it over, another 2 years till I'm a Corporal and qualify for Commissioning from the Ranks. As it looks now I will probably go IntO but the lure of being a police officer is very strong..

    So, what about everybody else?

    My dad was a ranger for 20 years....?

    I always thought about joinging the military cause I have so many good friends that are either reserve or were in the military. In fact, I used to not want to join but nowadays I seem to want to more and more.


    All I need is hand grenades.

    Why rob a bank? Rob a drug dealer. What are they gonna do? Call the cops?

    Zan: Don't wait too long although I've seen 50's year olds do it! The earlier the better ... hey if you don't like it, it's only a few years for a contract (regular army). You can always get out after that and you'll will have learned a lot over that time, things that always better you (discipline, meeting timings, personal hygience and grooming and keeping care of yourself - trust me the military will have you looking your sharpest) that will help with employment down the road.

    Of course you may like it after all and make it a career.

    Man: Weren't you ex-mil? You mentioned the MRE's. And why do you fail the requirements?

    I've often thought about joining the Air Force. They're the only branch of the US military I've given much thought into joining. I probably won't be a pilot, much as I wish it, more likely ground crew. But, it's the Air Force.

    Iím overweight, and still somewhere around 100lbs over requirements, in spite of 35 hours a week of light to medium physical labor in 90 degree weather. So I am not going to lose that much, no matter what I do, short of the especially evil diets/exercise as prescribed by a nutritionist, and frankly I donít care that much. Iím not unhealthy, and itís too big a drop to quality of life. The MREís was from my Defacto Dadís (who was an MP) military stash. I think it was from the late 80ís. Tried it last year.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    I went to marine corps boot camp last summer, but I don't know too much about the Air Force. I do know to be a pilot you have to be 5 foot 3 and have to have perfect 20/20 vision without contacts/glasses. It's pretty stupid, cuz I'm 5 foot and I wear contacts so I cancled out all the way. I do have an uncle that's a retired officer in the air force, so if you have any questions i'm sure I could ask him for you. Take care and feel free to PM me with any questions.

    I was in the U.S. Air Force for 4 years. From that experience, I say it's a terrible idea under most circumstances. I don't at all regret having been in the Military. I do, however, regret every moment that I was there.

    It's filled with the most absolutely ridiculous load of excrement that you could ever imagine. It's beyond just jumping through hoops and just "shut up and color." This is more like.. Well imagine this.
    You get one of those shock training collars for your dog, and you set it up so when they cross the boundary of your yard, it shocks him. Only you put it backwards, so it shocks your dog whenever he is IN the boundaries, and you deny him food if he LEAVES the boundaries.

    Sure, without the Military to claim as experience, I probably would never have gotten the job I have, despite how everything I learned, I learned on my own, without the Air Force's help.

    Wow man, that sounds ... almost twice as bad as our Army. Is the USAF really that crappy? Or just the part you were doing? Here, the RCAF is almost considered the "place to be" - no BS, no... uhh (rhymes with dock), treated well, relaxing job, for smarter people etc.

    Most army ends up going air force, at least here.

    Baby Serena: So... does that mean you're a Marine right now?

    Well, the Nutritionist would prescribe that sort of thing, in addition to a calorie restricted diet, but with a genetically fat person such as myself, it is a very uphill battle. I stay active, walk, and such, so itís not as though I donít do anything, or eat all day. Itís not so important to me, at any rate.

    It's not that the Air Force is not the place to be, because in comparison to the other branches, we were treated so much better, and anyone in the army or marines will say that I'm just whining blah blah blah.

    The truth is, the Military lifestyle is FULL of absolute filth. People were treated poorly when they were lower ranks, so they feel it's necessary to maintain a broken system. It's everything I despise about people, only without the educated people to help offset things.

    Ah yes, that's especially bad in the Russian army. I know exactly what you mean. The Cdn Military is very good for not doing that "never pass a fault" as the RCR motto goes, but we get a few of those types as well. Mind you, your military is far larger than ours so more will be around.

    Somehow, and I find the older types are very bad for this, because they had it really crappy and hard they think the new generation should too. Instead of passing on the experience and lessons they learned from that era they decide to almost punish us. At which point they fail to see they've become what they at one point in time hated.

    My brother was in the Marines and left for Iraq January 1, 2006. He was supposed to return in August, but he was killed. I wanted to join the army when I turn of age, but my parents basically told me that if I did they would disown me. So that dreams basically shattered ... sad yes, but maybe they are just trying to protect me?

    You must do what you feel is right..

    Holy crap.. that is horrible about your brother. I hate hearing about any soldier killed in duty, American or Canadian. However, he died following a calling higher than most will ever dream of. Semper Fi to your bro and I'd like to add my own unit motto, "Audax et Celer" (Bold and Swift) to his memory as well. I think bold and swift sums up a Marine quite well.

    my dad is still in the army ever since he was 18 and now hes 41 so you do the math. Hes in the infantry and is pretty high rank for his time, hes supposed to go back to iraq in a month about, this will be his 2nd time going there, last time he was gone for a year and a half.

    Daaaaamnn.. 1.5 year tour, that's insane. How does he feel about it?

    What is his rank? I am not familiar with US ranks but will understand it generally.
