Should I Join The Army??

Recommended Posts

i'm stuck in a decent paying, but shitty job. i've lived in the same city my entire life except for a brief 6 months.

 

i'm pretty much broke, want to travel, and want to go to college.

 

it seems like a yes, right? i get training and travel and meet people. at the same time i'm not entirely sure of myself in that environment and worried that once i sign up, and i'll regret it fully. when really i could probably just stay at my shitty job, bank my money, travel on my own, and take out a loan for college.

i've lurked and seen a couple of you are in the military. was it worth it?

SURE BUT DON'T EXPECT NONE OF THAT "YOU'RE A HERO FIGHTING FOR MY FREEDOMS" BULLSHIT.

 

YOU'RE A MERCENARY, YOU VOLUNTEERED, YOU GOT PAID, DON'T CRY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS.

wasn't planning to cry about it, dummy. i'm looking for direction in life. i'm 100% against the war(s) currently going on and i'm not all about guns, either, but i suppose i could get medical training? transportation training? i don't know... just wondering what people thought. if any of you have considered it ever?

I think joining right now is okay if you're willing to assume the risks, but odds are that skating through the next four years behind a desk is not an option.

 

If you want to get training in relative safety, go with the Coast Guard.

Join the coast guard. Join green peace.

If yer against the war and guns then WHY THE ARMY?

 

Training for other fields, like a career and something to look forward to besides getting shitfaced every night.

unfortunately life ain't all that right now... trying to find something to give me a dash of self-confidence.

i'm going to look into the air force and coast guard too.

Air Force = a technical job that will pretty much get you a job at any airport

 

Coast Guard = if you get the right port, you will get to pretty much shoot anything that moves

 

Army = Some tech jobs if you can cut it, but if you are a dumbass you are going to be a tanker/cook/or dirty leg. Which equals no job

 

Marines = Same as army except stupider

 

Navy = Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash

Information letter and day

 

At 17 years of age, male Swiss citizens receive a letter detailing their military obligations. At 18 years of age, they are sent marching orders to present themselves at a nearby barracks for a day of information. They are given presentations explaining the various branches of service and prerequisites for certain positions such as jet pilot (which requires two years of flight school outside of military service). Those wishing to take part in civilian service or weaponless service are instructed to address a letter detailing their intentions to their canton's military authority prior to recruitment.

 

Conscripts are also issued a service booklet in which the person's attendances or exemptions are recorded. To avoid conflicting with studies or work, they are also asked to pick a time (typically corresponding to spring, summer and autumn periods) most convenient for recruitment and start of service. Typically, a conscript will attend recruitment at 19 years of age and begin service at 20, but may legally postpone recruitment until 23 years of age.

 

Due to a new military reform enacted in 2005, it is no longer possible to postpone the initial training to finish university, although it is possible to postpone in order to finish high school or equivalent apprenticeships (for example for an aspiring carpenter who might only finish training at 19 or 20). For this reason many people try to get out of military service, so they can attend university immediately after finishing high school. It is possible to split the time in basic training (as recruit) and service (as soldier) which would allow one to start university immediately, the second half must be served at the earliest possible opportunity, usually Christmas break, a time which is usually used to study for exams. Hence, this practice is very hard on the student, and generally not recommended. The successive training weeks can also be postponed, but there is limited scope. In general, men interrupt their work during these weeks.

Yeah bro... you want to travel so join the fucking Army, get sent to some desert country in the middle east where everyone hates you and hang out on base with a bunch of angry sweaty dudes for the next 8 years or untill you get shot and/or killed. Or maybe you'll be riding in a truck and some roadside bomb leaves you a crippled amputee for the rest of your life.

Brilliant idea, Hoss.

Sure beats the fuck out of traveling on your own to places that you actually want to go and with the freedom to do whatever you want. :rolleyes:

travel is not a top concern, but i threw it in there.

i really want to go back to college but have NO money, probably can't get a real loan for another year as it is.

my main reason for even thinking of joining the army is career training. something possibly worthwhile that will give me a little bit of paper and perhaps make me feel needed. i stated something in the medical field... to help those injured soldiers you just mentioned.

just wondering if anyone had joined themselves and what they thought.

I would encourage you to better yourself in a path that does not involve becoming part of the US war machine, especially considering you are in opposition to the current campaign of terror being carried out by our government.

 

Kind of a no brainer in my opinion.

Medics get shot and blown up by IED's too.

 

Listen to whoever it was that said to join the Coast Guard.
