sir, well-come, sir
well I was in the army too, but german one and served in no wars. army is really cool for perhaps 2 years and after that it becomes a little bit boring.
thats why I left them after becoming specialist. studies are more fun now*g*
anyway good luck in iraq, respect for finishing the boot camp.
and no torturing iraquis qith DT as they did with metallica!!! (joke)
welcome, good luck and thank you for serving.
Mental. Good to have you here fellah. So did you go to the marine corps because you were well up for the challenge or do you actually think there's reason to go bust ass in mexico... or iran... or where ever it is america is beating up on?
Good luck with it. Don't get killed yourself son.
Here's a more recent and benefical pic of me, since I honestly look better with the beard. Oh by the way click the beard!
Wow, and what exactly do you do? Go and shoot some poor Iraqui butt? Ah, war is so crappy. Poor Iraquis and you guys, you don't deserve it (heck, Bush should be the one fighting over there, he;s stupid so he'd go down fast. Damn ape).
So why are you doing military service?
Hello mrhockey! It feels kind of weird to welcome you in here knowing youll face some serious tough shit in less than 2 months - but welcome anyway, man! Hope we get to know you more before you are off to Iraq.
Yes, i will do it. I have a question for you: would you rather have me use just this one or both?
mrhockeyjhgasdegnv: Sir, welcome, sir! *salutes* Actually, Rincewind might get jealous if i salute someone besides her. Try not to get shot at, and remember: running for cover isn't being a coward, it's being sensible.
i just don't fucking get it, you are 18 years old and you are going to fucking war just for the sense of pride and for serving stupid politics. Respect for the boot camp thing but as far as the actual war is considered you should have your head checked. I sure hope that this WILL NOT be the case but is your family going to feel pride when they will give them the american flag, oyu know what i mean.
i dunno, i prefer the second one but if you can putem both do it
I'm going to war because my unit is up next to get deployed. But I've always wanted to do something of this magnitude, I'm a person who puts others before me, so I dunno, I just wanted to take one for the team and man up and join the best.
I'm doing the military service to help pay for college, and for steady income as well. It's a pretty damn good deal for someone my age. I work like 5 days a month and get about 5-600 bucks for it. Then I work a civilian job next to that, so I'm really digging it.
One thing you gotta remember is that I've been mentally trained for this kinda situation, going to Iraq and all, it's incredible how much different a military serviceman's mindset is on things compared to a civilian's way of looking at things. But I'm ready for this, I'm ready to go kick some ass over there, come back, never go again, finish out my enlistment, finish college, which I'm currently in right now, Western Michigan University, then start a family around 24.
Also, I chose to do this because it looks really good on a resume when you're outta the military. So I just really wanted an advantage on any competition I have for jobs in the future. Also, the life skills I've learned already just from boot camp I wouldn't trade for the world, and would not have learned anywhere else, and that is evident by looking at my friends who just bum around.
Funny, I thought only guys here in Slovakia and the neighbouring countries join the army and go on missions to Iraq or Kosovo, etc. for money (well, not only, but you know what I mean). But now I see its the same everywhere.
Pred: Yep, i can put many pics on it.
Soldier: There's no such thing as "mentally trained". Some 'Nam vets are as hell, and they were "mentally trained" as well, weren't they? I just hope you don't get killed and you don't return crazy.
Thank you, I'm pretty sure I won't return crazy, I'm pretty good about not getting rattled about fucked up shit like deaths and all that, I've always been good about handling shitty situations like that and not letting it get to me/get the best of me.
But believe, I've pretty much already seen a lot of what I'm gonna see, killing-wise, they show us videos of heads blown off in boot camp and infantry training and like rockets being shot off destroying buildings and people getting sniped/shot and all that, they got their own way of preparing us.
Do they show you videos of your fellow country men kicking the living shit out of iraqi children just for the fun of it? While spitting racist remarks at them and laughing it off like it's an everyday occurence? Because we've been shown that... and I watch people being shot in the face for fun... yeah I'm sick like that... but the crimes against those children is just unnacceptable, and truly upsetting.
I'll love you forever Mrhatrathmoosha if you make sure none of that shit goes down where you're stationed.
It's just like the internet!!
Wow, 18 years old and stupid enough to put your life on the line. Well, I hope you know what you're doing, although it sure is better people like you join the army out of their own free will than the government forcing people to serve. Good luck with college afterwards, if you come back in one piece
Not stupid. Maybe he's not afraid to die. What he believes in, if he indeed believes in all that "Irak is evil and good old Uncle Sam must rid the world of all evil except itself", is stupid, but not being willing to die for whatever he believes in.
