    Well. I was finally able to piss in the cup today. So I go to get fingerprinted and some other shit..and after about 9 hours (im not exaggerating..I got there around 5:30am and left around 6:30pm) of being there just waiting for stupid shit..its time to pick my job.
    So I walk in there and the man seems cool and asks 'what can the best army in the world do for ya?'. So I tell him Im only interested in short-term shit..2 or 3 years.
    He says he can get me a job in the infantry for 2 years. I tell him its probably too hard. See, Im overweight (about 5'10''..200lbs) and to be in the infantry you gotta be hardcore to the fuckin bone.
    Their boot camp isnt a fuckin joke.
    I tell him it sounds nice, but if I did that Id have to delay my entry so I could spend alot of time getting into top shape. He assures me Ill be ok, and that its the Armys job to get me in shape. So, being that I love a challenge - especially when it looks impossible. I say yes. I accept a 2 year enlistment as a member of the US Army infantry.

    If you dont know about the infantry, heres the the general info. Theyre the toughest motherfuckers in the Army. Theyre the ones on the front lines of the battlefield. Theyre basically trained killing machines with a body like a fuckin rock. If some shit goes down, Army sends them in first. Theyre like marines. They're out there everyday simulating warfare. Im scared as fuck I wont be able to make it through their boot camp. But Im also excited at the challenge. It would put me in such great shape that my bball game would skyrocket..I'd be able to run all over the place just to wear the opponent down. Id be fuckin ripped with no fat on me..when I get out Id get every girl I wanted. And I would truly be proud of myself for life if I accomplished this.

    Being Im only enlisted 2 years..I didnt get as much shit as others. But I did get a pretty penny more than Id get working at fast food. For college I got $26,500.
    As an enlistment bonus I got $3,000.
    And I will be making around $940 a month. It doesnt sound like much but dont forget thats $940 with rent, food, insurance all paid for.
    And that $940 is just temporary. After about 6 months I should upgrade to around $1,100 a month. Then by the time I get out I should be around $1,300 a month.

    I ship out August 31st. Until then Im gonna be working my ass off. Im gonna wake up around 5am every morning and jog/walk 3 miles to the park. Then play ball, run the track, etc at the park ALL FUCKING DAY until the sun comes down..then go home and sleep.If I do that 30 days straight Ill be in pretty good shape. Well, here goes nothin I guess..

    waaaiiiit.have you been reading what we were saying? do you pay attention to politics? bush is president and your going to infantry. your going to be one of the first people to die. do something illigal now to get out of it.

    or.. if right now you still want to go. but once you get there, you realize what we have been trying to tell you, you wont like the army. then this is what you do.
    (this might be hard for you to do. but you will never see the people again.. so dont worry about it)
    act gay. tell everyone that on saturdays you go and assram a bunch of guys. you will get discharged. why you ask? you thought homosexuals were permitted to be in the army?
    this is true. they are. as long as they dont tell anyone and as long as they do not commit any homosexual acts while a member of the u.s. army.

    there are easy ways out of everything. take the easy way out. the gay way.

    I agree with everyone. If you need money take out a loan, it'll fuck up your credit but, after seven years its gone. Bush is a complete idiot, do you nor watch saturday night live. The reason why that guy told you to join the infantry cause they need more enlistments. They know hes going to attack arabia yo! Get your ass back to that army place and tear up your contract. if you go, you will be dead within 10 years, and for what? Some rich familys who dont give a damn about you, A good body and some gay love with a marine. Its not worth it dude. Please reconsider.

    fuck all you haters, you probably have college paid for by your fucking parents, or what they only afford to buy you a car and pay half your tuition, FUCK OFF>..

    i was raised in the military, if you have never served in the military, or grown up for half your life on a military base, THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!...

    joining the military when your young so you can better your life and taking the risk that you might get killed or have to kill some one is far far far more respectable than you more than likley priviliged mother fuckers sitting bitching someone out for sacrificing 2 years of their life to get somewhere in life..
    dont think im on the goverments dick, but going to the army is like taking a prison sentence so you can get some where in life ON YOUR FUCKING OWN!!!

    I respect people in the armed services, because they do what they need to do to take care of themselves and their familys...my family has been in the gulf war, the vietnam war, the korean war, and world war 2...
    they could really give less than a fuck about the bullshit politics in this country, but theres people in other countrys armys that do a lot more unjustified killing and raping..so go take them on..get fucking shot you bitches..

    you ever lived in the third world??
    garuntee if you have, that when you see a military base and can go get a coke and cheesburger and kick it with americans in a hostile enviroment, youd eat your fucking words.....

    right on Mapo, good looking out on the college funding and money in the bank while getting in shape...i respect that.

    remi...you make me think of the things i need to do.....but to join the military?i can work hard..but i know deep down inside...
    its one of my options.....probably one of my best...and worst....
    i refuse to take it..thats what my problem is...but maybe its for the best...maybe the worst....but bush is a dumb fuck dead pres and i dont wanna go to war with some other brother from around the world not wanting to be in a war just the same as i would..only to kill in the propaganda fear that of which war is all about...
    the super power doesnt have to be one nation...it could be all nations doing the same wrong towards brotherly and sisterly man....fuck a super power and fuck the usa...
    in God we trust,,NOT dem damn dollars..because that is what most wars are being fought for..."rich mans money"


    i do agree with the ..."do what you gota do what you gota do" but i aint doin it.. http://www.12ozprophet.com/ubb//biggrin.gif'>

    Thanks for everyones response, positive or negative. I can understand where the anti-army people are coming from. There is a part of me thats afraid theyll fuck my head up. But I just believe I gotta stay mentally strong. Yeah theres people who get permanently fucked up mentally, but theres also people that are never the same after a strong acid trip. Ive tripped before and I came out fine..and anyone thats ever tripped knows the key to not flipping out is to just keep saying to yourself 'im tripping. its not real. im tripping'. Im gonna take that same mentality, Ill just keep thinkin 'hes tryin to break me down, its all a game, nobody can fuck with my brain if I dont let them.' If I know going in that theyll fuck with my head, that gives me an advantage, theyd rather catch me off-guard. My recruiter told me when you first get there, you have about 3 days of just initiation.
    Thats where you get your uniforms, immunizations, id card, boots, etc. He said they treat you really well there and feed you well, nice room, with the purporse of having you let your guard down. Well now that I know that - my guard isnt coming down. Ill know that shits just the calm before the storm. And dont forget Im only going in for 2 years..that shit will be over before I know it. Alot of those mentally fucked army guys were in for 4 years or more. Also, communication technology has gotten so much better. Once Im past boot camp I can go to my barracks after work and log on to the net, watch tv, listen to music, etc so I wont lose contact with reality. And after boot camp youre allowed to leave base. Also you get 30 months paid vacation every year..if I really hate it I can save them and get out after about 1 year 10 months.

    Oh and if anyones wondering Ill be in Ft. Benning GA.
