>>51172602Here's the real thread tranny. It came first. Now go join the 41%.
>>51172883Lol dude as a 35F from the 82nd you will never account to anything. Grow up dude.>>51148301I am this guy.
OCS or ROTC for AV branch? NG or USAR.
>>51172936What did you have for lunch today?
>>51172955I had pho. It was delish.
>>51172881costes are based, don't join the navy kiddos join the coast guard. they're constantly seeing action fighting america's longest and most devistating war. the war between idiots and themselves
>>51172984Zero monetary value. Are you fucking daft?
>>51173011And you have the very real possibility of going home most nights to your own bed in a place you rent for yourself.Instead of living with a bunch of smelly dudes on a tin can for months on end
>>51172936Im a 35M dumbass. Im surprised sniper school didnt have a reading requirement. Learn to read before you post b4 boy.
>>51173020Does it show up on your LES or W2? No, then your salary is only what it says on those two papers and not some inflated number you are making up based on the free amenities we get for serving.
>>51173112I'm not that anon, but cola definitely shows up on your les... the faggot you're talking to seems obnoxious, but you're just wrong.Are you a neverserve?
>>51173135Your specific situation is fine. I agree with you that you can make 40k with COLA or BAH. But I am arguing that the avg E3 private at the majority of units, without BAH or COLA or any special pay, only make 25k (2100 a month) and that making 40k is not typical.
>>51173161Yeah, that is just math.They keep changing subjects, I'm not sure what they're arguing.
>>51173209Yup. Im just trying to stop this disinfo from spreading.
350F here. AMA next couple of hours.
>>51172948Woft for helicopters. ROTC for aviation. Rules of priority goes, academies, ROTC, prior enlisted, then OCS.
>>51173253What did you have for lunch?
>>51173295350F here. Fish and chips. Cod, not haddock.
>>51173473yes, same with navy and marines, only really keeps the male ones out
>>51173523Who would have thought fat badonkadonks would act as natural flotation devices
>>51173540>>51173523Interesting that these threads are moderated now.
>>51173897Moderated by whom?
>>51172881What's the best way for skinny guys to gain muscle mass?
which branch will give me the best chance of getting a qt redpilled southern gf?
>>511739553 big meals and PBJs between each meal. Your meals should have more fat content as well so you have plenty to burn when you grind hard in the gym. A lot of skinny dudes make the mistake of prioritizing protein content and end up lacking in carbs and fats. Why do you think bodybuilders would pick a massive plate of spaghetti over a ribeye steak?
>>51174009Probably Army or Air Force. Marines and Navy attract weird women, I wish I could describe it better
>Inlisting at 30Yes or no?Also what branch?>Tfw already too old to be a marine
>>51174166Enlisting god dammit don't tell the recruiter I have dyslexia
>>51174009it doesnt matter, conservative civilian girls dont know the difference, they just hear "military" and they imagine special forces anyway
>>51174166what are you asking? if you're motivated enough your age won't change anything, but in terms of the highest career potential the best choices would be army/navy, if you just want to be around the most military-esque men then army/marines infantry
>>51174009AF, but you need to lock them down before you leave tech school. Im talking engagement minimum. Once they get to their first unit, shes going to get locked down by a SNCO or O3+.
>>51174166350F here. Buddy of mine was 32 when he left his CS professor job at a community college to go 18x. He is now a CW4 180A and pushing 50.
>>51174424>old nerd goes warrantthis is so predictably sad, let me guess, he also has a profile that allows him to bicycle instead of the apft run?
>>51174452Do you know what a 180A is?
>>51174473>he thinks warrants in any unit still PT
>>51174473350F here. He definitely doesnt lol.
>warrant officer here, p-please stop bullying warrant officers!!
>>51172881I bet that Nazi larper sperged hard when he saw "JQ" in the OP photo filename
>>51172948Don't join the army if you want to be a commissioned aviator, join the Navy.>>51174495All the warrant flight students in training bubbles at Rucker have to do accountability in the mornings as of today because everyone was showing up to PT and then running to their cars and driving home lol
>>51174473Do you know what warrant officers do?
>>51172881>masked up goy force ready to spread faggot ideology across the world with lethal force
>>51172881How does it feel that you bigots are literally spreading white supremacy and imperialism across the globe as well as DIRECTLY contributing to the killing of innocent brown people in developing nations?
>>51175151Pretty sure i dont do any of that. Dunno about the other guys, ill ask tomorrow.
I went to an army recruiter and told them i'm on Stimulants. But i don't take them and haven't taken them for a year and a half but i went to a marine and navy recruiter and told them i don't take anything. Will my medical records expose me or am i fucked?
FUTURE WAR LOSERS ITT
>>51175151People don't care about doing anything moral. They want money, they want to be able to live comfortably.The US military is a social welfare program and everyone knows it. You really need to change up your bait if you're wanting to trigger people.
>>51175151We know what you’re trying to do, and it’s not working. It’s obvious to everyone the US military is a global force for faggotry and nigger worship
>>51175151>hurr I GOnNA MAKe ANtI-mIlItARy LOOk liKe LibTarDs HURRFind me a libtard who says the military fights for kikes
>>51175306Nah u good
>>51175451they're anti-military and you know it, and will use whatever falseflag they need to in order to make you support their agenda
>>51175498Yeah, I see the military being ordered to kneel for BLM and I know you’re a bunch of neutered faggots. If a liberal is too dumb to realize the military is on their side then that’s their problem. Right wingers hate you faggots too and eventually they’ll outnumber liberals who hate the military.
>>51175598I’m White. also post a pic like that with a face shown. Oh wait, you can’t because your superiors would fuck you in the ass for making a swastika even as a joke
>>51175498What are you talking about? Israel is our greatest ally. American and Israeli soldiers fight shoulder to shoulder together literally all the time. The USS Liberty was just an accident, MOSSAD had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11, and the fact that Israeli-American dual citizens in military intelligence spy for Israel is of no significance at all.
>S-so what if the military is full of redpilled chads? There's a guy who works at Starbucks with me who voted for Trump you know!
>single person responds to bait>zogtard spergs out and posts over and over again, sometimes even replying to himselfY'all never learn
>giving up executive power in order to boycott le juiceYes, that'll show us, goy.
How many burgers per day does it take to maintain peak performance?
>>51175008You think a special forces team leader warrant officer doesn't fucking PT?
>>51173955Rice, chicken, sandwiches, lots of mayonaise and other condimentsextra virgin olive oilChickpeas are like 400 calories per normal ass can, you can eat two of those a day pretty cheaply along with other canned kidney beans and such, mixed vegetables for varietyOnce you're actually in if you game the DFAC you can get some supremely easy calories Here's what you can get for dinner at a decent DFACNot shown is a gigantic spinach salad with metric tons of toppings and drowned in olive oil (their olive oil is a blend, cut with cheaper shit, not ideal but it does taste better, it's true)
>>51176922>sweet potato friesI simply cannot go back to regular fries after eating these babies. Heat up some butter and pour it onto those fries and it's the closest a potato can get to having a crab dinner.
>>51175857I could live off two, but probably fourThis is assuming you're active dailyI like to run or bike or elliptical three times a week if it's not part of my job>>51176946Butter is shit and shit for youUse vegetable spread/butter substitute, tastes just as good and doesn't make you feel like your veins are going to explodeGives you healthy fats (unsaturated) instead of unhealthy fats (saturated) and cholesterol (kills you)>>51176946Just better calories, more vitamins, easy way to soak up the extra greaseI'd also like to note that those phillies were a bit underfilled with meat compared to usual. Not too bad but like maybe 15% less, you can usually expect a little moreI also fork or spoon the rice onto the phillies so I can eat 'em faster and easier with less messthey absorb all the sauce and shit so I can eat it like a burrito almostMan I miss the DFAC, don't go on BAS kids
>>51176979>Gives you healthy fats (unsaturated) instead of unhealthy fats (saturated) and cholesterol (kills you)Yeah but what about my disability rating? I got plenty of time to unfuck myself later.
>>51176979Butter is fucking delicious. You're smoking crack. You can say it's unhealthy but who the fuck cares.
>>51176979>butter badTell that to the amish. Motherfuckers be lifting barn with only enough people to form a fire team.
>>51177315God I wish I could "churn" an Amish girl's unshaven pussy.
So first it was soldiers would get other than honorables if they don't get vaxxed, now they're saying they can stay in and serve they just can't get promotions. Anyone else think this is kinda weird?
>>51177472They realized that losing 30% of the total force over a flu shot would be disastrous for national security. Not terribly hard to figure out
>>51177507Ngl it did seem pretty fucking stupid to be saber rattling at Russia and China all while moving to start cutting your own forces down
how long will this vaccine mandate last? what do yall think? Also what is recruitment needs looking like now that we aren't in an active conflict, is getting option 4 or waivers competitive right now?
>>51177472>>51177507>>51177526I hope this vaccine mandate gets taken away. God this shit seems so stupid trying to scare tactic everybody into getting a rushed vaccine
>>51177562Its exactly the same. Stop listening to /pol/. More people got the vaxx than you think. No one is hurting for new recruits. I would guess another year or 2 before the mandates become part of the norm and forgotten. Covid vaccine booster will just be added to the 14 other random boosters everyone gets jabbed with during basic training.
>>51177562>how long will this vaccine mandate lastfederal court already put it on hold, so it doesn't exist right now technicallyNo, nothing is competitive, everything is possible, just start your process now. Motherfuckers really be like "oh I didn't want to wait a month for the contract I wanted to pop up so I took a 6 year contract doing this job I hated, fuck the army"Meanwhile they were working at taco bell for 3 or 6 months while debating whether they wanted to join or notStupid ass 90 IQ impulsive motherfuckers with no concept of delayed gratification are the only reason we can hit manning requirements in any service
>>51177615I am willing to wait for a contract, its just I have some minor charge from my juvenile years and I had a bad experience years ago when I tried to join the recruiter straight up told me I could never join cause they don't do waivers for drug shit even though I was never convicted of anything and they dropped the charges and it was expunged, he just didn't wanna deal with the waiver process and was basically telling me to fuck off. I don't want to start off bad with my recruiting station near me and have to travel 20 fucking miles to the nearest city over to try their station. it was paraphernalia if your wondering, a weed pipe.
>>51177611I guarantee, even when this thing subsides, all military personnel will still be taking the shot because it's easier to just keep doing that then go through the administrative bullshit required to remove it from the list of shots. That is why the people that come in here asking about the vaccine are wasting everybody's time. It's never going away for the military, so if you won't join until it goes away, you just ain't going to join.
my flight chief wants me to see mental health, but i didn't do anything to deserve it. what do
>>51177716I want to sign up to defend the constitution, not be a Guinea pig for some big pharama fucks who will never be held accountable for their crimes.
>>51177930It's both or none, kid.
>>51177716>>51177930I am genuinely scared of the side effects and the possibility of it fucking with my heart. I am in a rough situation though because the military is literally my only option so I understand I have to get it. But lets be real here, the government has a history of experimenting on soldiers.
>>51177969>But lets be real here, the government has a history of experimenting on soldiers.This. If the Covid shot is worst thing that happens to you, then count your blessings.
>>51177969Exactly. The military was the first to document, and force them to recognize that myocarditis IS a side effect. AND THEYRE STILL FORCING IT. Excuses of "operational readiness" is out the window when you know there are serious risks to be had.
>>51177992>If the Covid shot is worst thing that happens to you, then count your blessings.I am terrified of having all my opportunities taken away if I get some of the supposedly rare side effects and it fucks with my heart or something. It doesn't matter to them, they'll just discharge me and another will take my place, but for the rest of my life, my career and body will be fucked up. I'll never get another chance at fulfilling my career goals and it won't matter to anybody but me, I'd be stuck with some shitty wagie job until I finally blow my head off.
>>51178025>BuT YoU SiGnEd a CoNtRaCT
>>51178037Yeah and that's how we get a nihilistic society where people are driving into crowds of people, because there is zero compassion on part of the federal government.
>>51178046Just the blatant disregard for the lives of military personnel like"Oh you signed this contract, we get to do all sorts of fucked up stuff to you without repercussion". Is fucking baffling. Like, when does your oath, if ever, come before your contract?
Thinking of going officer. However, I read online that there is automatic no go for cancer for 5 years. Can you guys confirm that cancer is no go for 5 years?
>>51178146yeah and then they act like they are these benevolent leaders whenever it comes time to honor the soldiers. I love how these "first responders" and "heroes" at the beginning of the pandemic turned into hated people getting fired when they refused to get the vax. Its the same thing for soldiers, "oh you won't get the vax? fuck you, your oath, and your service! get out!"
>>51178234Never seen that cartoon before, but I can tell the irony and bullshit of the situation cause I've been paying attention. Still though I'm forced to get the goddamn vax because I literally have no other choice but to join the military, if I don't get in, I probably will go into the mountains and die to a bear or something.
>>51178254Do it you dumb cunt, probably raise the IQ of the county by a few points
>>51178268Says the guy who blindly follows
>>51178268I'll see you on the inside faggot. Keep that same energy. Either way, atleast I kept my balls, while they got yours in a fucking jar they display on their mantle.
>>51173105Congrats, I did your job as conventional. It ain't hard to tactically question folks. Get to batt at the least.>>51173135I've been heated lately, I apologize.Also 350F guy is cool as fuck. Wish we could have a beer or 10.
Bout to run again tonight boys, shooting for some better numbers. I'll post em when I get back.
I think I have autism. I'm already in the military, though. Everything is really overwhelming to me.
>>51178667Good luck, anon. The ladyboys of Taiwan are counting on you.
>>51177966No. It's just none. The government wipes their ass with the constitution every day.
>>51177805Ignore him. He cant force you to get a sex change either. Youre in the AF, only commanders can direct you to mental health lol.
>>51178025But also you cant exp your dream of joining the military if you dont get the shot. Occams razor.
>>51178163Confirmed. Have to be cancer free for 5 years. However thats only if they can catch that you even had cancer to begin with. The only tests they do during entrance is a basic physical, blood test, piss test, std test, and common drug test.
>>51178488Im just correcting you for shit talking me and calling me a 35F. Would you have liked it if I kept calling you an 88M even though you are a regular poster and I knew you were the 11B poster? Exactly.
I never wanted tattoos before I started serving, but now I want at least one. Given the fact that this wasn't what I wanted before, am I going to regret it when I get out?
>>51179928Yup. But get one anyway for the lulz.
>>51179840Not him, but that's totally different and you know. Getting two different Intel Jobs mixed up isn't the same as confusing an infantryman and a truck driver.
>>51179840Yeah my bad man it was unnecessary. I wouldn't feel bad if you called me an 88M but I get your point. I get heated randomly.
>>51179072Why do you think you have autism?
>>51179928Tattoos have been traditionally reserved for tribes, cults, prisoners, and military men (particularly sailors). It's only in very recent times that tattooing has been co-opted by normies who think they can buy the cool factor that tattoos provided to those that actually earned them.
>>51180792Didnt you learn anything last time I had to slap your shit with knowledge? Goddamned moron. You're so fucking stupid you should be a leftist.
>>51177387What do you mean by that?
>>51181354wtf is Reddit spacing? seems like something only known by people who use Reddit
>>51181313Shut up, sperg.
>>51181313>>51181690The easily triggered don't belong on this site.
>>51181803yeah imagine getting mad about spacing lmao
What's the best way to get your emergency leave approved fast? I want to visit my hometown in January but we're in the field for most of the month.
>>51181961Your priority should be training, not going back to your shitty home town dude. Don’t bother submitting a leave form, if your leadership has any sense, they’d tear it up in front of you.
>>51175151>How does it feel that you bigots are literally spreading white supremacy We don't do that but I wish we did >and imperialism based >killing of innocent brown people in developing nations If we did this at 100 times our current rate it would be based, as it is now it's just a waste of money >>51176922The rice and broccoli look a bit dry but otherwise holy fuck that looks so good senpai

350F here. Hope you all have a decent thanksgiving tomorrow. Antiterrorism/DVE warning for tomorrow, stay away from jewish places of worship or gatherings. Chatter from AQ and some other entities have those as the main target for tomorrow and through december. Also some chatter about targeting black friday events.
>>51184896why would i want to go near jews anyway
>>51172881after how afghanistan turned out why would you join the military if you had literally any other options.
>>51184896Happy Than/k/sgiving /b/ro! Congratulations on your recent promotion.
i kinda wanna go marines just to say i did itam i retarded
>>51184970Probably because they want to. People sometimes do things because they want to do it. Doesn't have to make sense to you. Now leave the thread since you have nothing to contribute.
>>51184976no, nothing wrong with marines besides their pitiful budget
>>51184976Yes, but you do you. If you arent going for 03xx, aviation, gunsmith, or waterdog, dont bother.
>>51185000>Now leave the thread since you have nothing to contribute.
>>51184976Watch this gif, then answer this question: would you want this to happen to your asshole? Your answer to that question is the answer as to whether you should join the Marines
>>51184971350F here. Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks. Got my turkey defrosted and a shit ton of potatoes ready to go (doing parmesan potato stacks and mashed potatoes). Doing a side of honey glazed carrots. Were doing mac n cheese as an additional side since its now a thing? And I made strawberry pie.
>>51182550literally mei guess i've gotten some good skills but we do serve the jewoverall, pretty gay
>>51182550the only waste of money is what we're paying contractors, soldiers need combat experience, otherwise they just sit around doing D&C all day, just look at china's army
>>51185094Absolutely mouth-watering, sir
>>51185221350F here. It's chief, not "sir", bitch.
Do you have to be particularly athletic or in great shape to become an army combat arms officer? I think I can get in shape but I’ve never been particularly athletic.
>>51186126>officerno, you literally just do paperwork
>>51186126An infantry PL is expected to be a visible symbol of leadership, both in character and in fitness. While you aren't expected to be an Olympian, you are expected to be the fittest man in your platoon, or at least very close. Armor, FA, and FO officers are expected to be fit but not quite in the same way.
>>51185856350F here. I accept chief, sir, guy, hero, anon.>>51186126Yes to both, for O1-O3 because that is literally all they care about. How you look in uniform, and how you score on your fitness tests. They harp them on bullshit about needing to be physically better than the enlisted for some convoluted psychological reasons (there is actually a paper on this floating around). My advice, just focus on getting high fitness scores and keeping your body healthy and flexible.
>>51186177You have clearly never been in an infantry unit. They're never the fittest person in the unit, not by a long shot.
Graduating with an EE degree with less than 3.0 GPA, and I don’t have much of a resume, except I’m planning on scoring well on AFOQT since I got a 1330 on SAT without much study and since have gotten much better at math. Also very fit with 80 push-ups 80 sits 25 pullups, and meh 1.5 of ~10 (getting better on runnjng, used to be XC). What should I be doing?
>>51186222I'm an 11B2 my guy
>>51186222What positions were those guys in? Staff? Also, what units? Usually the fatbody officers are the ones dragging their feet for promotions or are getting pushed out of the unit.>11A O2 suffering in hell hole Drum
>>51186230350F here. When did you graduate?
>>51186310Graduating this spring from ERAU
Why won't they salute me
they have to salute me!!! I have a degree in liberal arts!
Sup /meg/. Anon who had a lump on his leg from last thread. Turns out its a tibialis anterior muscle hernia. Not much to do except compression and rest. Fuck me.
>>51186340350F Here. You should apply for job posts like the below for recent grads while you talk and pursue any officer job with the AF reserves/ANG (I assumed you only want AF since you mentioned AFOQT. Becoming an officer in any branch is a long ass process. So you should have backups and contingencies in case it doesnt work out. Also, you should study for the AFOQT, its not the ASVAB (which should be studied for regardless of how well you think you will do). https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/623643100https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/623682600https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/623294500
>>51186189>…that is literally all they care about. How you look in uniform, and how you score on your fitness tests.That sounds exceedingly stupid.
I've always dreamed about joining the Navy and Navy Seals specifically. I now know that is an unattainable goal for me but I'd still like to serve my nation. My only problem is that I'm worried about how I'd be treated by my peers. Is it worth it or am I setting myself up for trouble?
>>51186390>>51186364>he actually cares about salutingIf it makes you feel better sir, every time I spot you coming I make sure to space out my squad behind me so you have to individually salute each of us as we walk by.
>>51186423350F here. Yup. Like I always say, Officer first, Soldier/Sailor/Marine/etc. second, and job third.>>51186430Go for it if thats what you want to do. Just do your research and prepare for it before you even talk to a recruiter. As far as being worried about how you will be treated by your peers, just be friendly and put in some level of effort to socially interact and you will be fine.
>>51186430I'd encourage you to look into SFAS instead. From what I've heard there's a fixed number of slots for new SEALs each year, so many of those who pass BUDS don't get selected.
>>51185000This. If I wanted I could go up to the union hall with my older brother and start an apprenticeship as an Iron worker. Im choosing not to do that because that same brother served, as did my cousin, grandpa and great uncle. I see it kind of a right of passage. And besides, why pay for college myself?
>>51186489I'm worried about my physical safety. For a few years in high school I had to deal with getting into fights and sexual harassment because of a hormone disorder. Everything is mostly corrected but I still feel nervous about being in that type of environment again.>>51186492Not going to happen. It's beyond my physical abilities, unfortunately.
>>51186559Bruh. Youre being a bitch
>>51186559If you think SFAS is beyond your capabilities why do you think you can pass BUDS?21 days of long rucks and unknown distance runs is probably easier than 8+ weeks of pool PT and 10 mile beach runs, imo.
>>51186595I'm not being a bitch. I've had my experiences and have worked to get past them, but I know my limits.>>51186613Running I can do, and I'm not totally inept at strength related tasks but I'm still catching up to my peers. I'm not totally confident I can pass either BUDS or SFAS, but if there's any chance I can do well I'll go for it. I'd love to do anything special forces related, but content to be a regular sailor.
>>51186674You dont know your limits
>>51186674dont join if you are a transexual.
>>51186674You unironically are ngmi. It's okay to be nervous and even normal to be unsure of your ability, but you just straight up sound scared. >I'd be content to be a regular sailorThen you won't make it because the people who aren't content with the fleet don't give up, and the ones who are content realize that freezing your balls solid in ice cold water for bragging rights isn't all that worth it and ring the bell.
>>51186674This isn't the 90s anymore. If you wanna be a SEAL you go into that shit fresh off the street. Honestly if you think you will have any inkling for something in the special operations community, go Army. There's more opportunity to go that route than the other branches IMO
>>51186696I fill my time exercising and doing sports, I know what I can do and enjoy reaching new peaks>>51186741I am not and will never transition. I enjoy being a man>>51186745You're right I do come across as scared. I'm working towards fixing my attitude about it.>>51186760I'm only interested in joining the Navy. My dad, uncles and grandfather and such were all Navy. I want to follow in the family tradition.
how to keep the military from becoming pozzed like the rest of society?
>>51172881where do I sign up to die for Israel?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iuk5bWa-C8ware british royal marines overhyped? they make themselves out to be special forces
>>51186474That's not an officer, that's a non-serve trying to get attention.
>>51186413I want to become a pilot in the Air Force, I have several bases near me with a variety of jobs, how should I approach this differently than you advised, sorry thst was an important detail.
>>51172948If you really want to fly in the Army go WOFT. If you need to be an officer while you fly go to one of the other services.
>>51186222They may not always be the fittest guy in the platoon, but they're definitely one of the fittest. They should be able to lead the fast ability group run easily. Many many commanders will fuck over officers who don't max their APFT (dunno how it will work with the new test). You're living in fucking lala land if you think that infantry/maneuver LTs aren't held to a significantly higher PT standard than enlisted.
*shines red lens in your face*hey man... wake up... you got fireguard
>i leave for USMC boot camp in January >im 28 with a 300 PFThow fucked am I? my fitness can only take me so far during recruit training right?
>>51187665350F here. Definitely an important detail lol. Not gonna loe, you have about a 5% chance of becoming a pilot in the AF. Only thing you can do is talk to a recruiter. If you really want to be a pilot your best chances are WOFT in the army, and navy. Those two are at least realistic shots.
>>51188610not fucked at all, have fun
Can I take my gaming PC with me to AIT???Im hoping im allowed to drive there in a POV, rather than getting on a flight.
What branch has the dumbest members? And how dumb are they on average?
military uniforms look cool as fuck, why would anyone wear civilian clothes even when offduty
>>51190422Marines I guess? Pretty much entirely uneducated working class white males.
>>51190499Why don't you join and find out?
>>51190571they probably wont let me in since I got in trouble when I was younger, i still think its cool though
I personally believe it's the Air Force, particularly enlisted. They buy into the crap that they're the smartest branch despite having very similar jobs among people not doing the flying.I'll die on this hill probably but an infantry Marine is smarter than a SecFo guy in the AF.
>>51188273It's a rite of passage to flip someone out of their bunk when they don't get up
>>51190422>>51190613my dumbass somehow forgot to reply
is getting a face tattoo the fastest way to get out of the military?
>>51190523>Marines >WhiteThe Marines are 80% Latino
>>51190499>why would anyone wear civilian clothes even when offdutyTHanK U 4 uR SeRviS
>>51190662you're tired of people showing respect to you?
>>51190610So then why are you here? This is a thread designed to provide information for people interested in joining.
>>51190712to talk to military people
>>51190686Yes. I do my job because I want to do it not for the validation of civilians. Wearing your uniform in public just brings unnecessary attention. If I'm stopping at the store or getting food then whatever, but it's still annoying. People don't see (You) in the uniform, they just see the clothes. Go to a store in OCPs one week then show up in a plainclothes the next. The same cashier who stared at you with googly eyes will look at you like a homeless man.
>>51190499t. stolenvalor kiddie
>>51190613Air Force enlisted think they're smart, but they're just medium IQ fatbodies who freely admit that they're pussies.
>>51190861I've never met an airman that was the smartest person in the room in any joint operation. They are usually just kind of there, ready to interject about their favorite Netflix show than actually bringing anything of merit to the table.Combat airmen (all 12 of them) may bring something to the table, but the rest of them seem like retards.
>>51190422Objectively the Army. Here are average ASVAB scores by branch. You're all pretty dumb though to be honest. https://www.testpreppractice.net/average-asvab-scores/
>>51190983>Achieving a high score in this test is no mean featLmao. The average GT for dumb grunts is about 100-110. I think this was made up to bait cooks or supply guys.
>>51190983How do the officers scores compare?
>>51190983Those are minimum scores and your source is garbage. You're an idiot.
>>51190983>Nasty Girls are objectively smarter than Active DutyLmao, it makes sense since the Guard is full of college kids rather than college dropouts
>>51191048>average scores>those are minimum scoresLet me guess. You're Army, right?
>>51190983Holy duck you are stupid. The ASVAB is a percentile based score. The average score by definition is 50 you absolute tard. Way to out yourself as being below all of those scores, brainlet.>>51191050And you're objectively stupid due to being incapable of understanding data presented to you or evaluating a source for validity.
>>51191093We're having fun. Stop being a bitch
>>51190613Nobody who knows the truth is going to argue this. USAF secfo are literally the retards of the branch, it is the job that people are washed into when they can't hack it elsewhere.And if you bought into the airmen are smart meme then I'd call you a retard as well.
>>51191178I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the Air Force is filled with retards who think they are smart. The actual smart guys join CG and the Navy.
>>51190983I figured NG would be the highest, I knew several guys with Masters/Doctorate degrees (seriously) in AIT who went NG because it would pay off all their university debt. I wish I had known about that when I enlisted.
>>51191397>Doctor Private SmithLol
>>51191433He had a degree so he was a SPC
>>51191397Bro imagine going from being referred to as "Dr." and being around intelligent and diligent academics to standing side by side with an illiterate 18 year old who joined so he could get pussy.
>>51191785Yeah but also imagine getting potentially $100k+ in student loans paid off in a couple of months
>>51191819In exchange for zero career mobility and what amounts to the mental equivalent of prison?
>>51191845Drill is only 1 weekend per month, drama queen. The doc was a literature major anyway so his career will probably be spent in academia anyway.
Just how fit do I need to be to make it to the 75th? Also, is being a Ranger worth it?
>>51191911Are you already in? The entire Army bends over backwards for Rangers so if you have any ambition at all then you'll want to go to RASP. >How fit do you need to be? Max the APFT with perfect form pushups.
>>51191845You think that being around dumb people for a weekend would harm someone who has a doctorate? You don't think that someone with a doctorate ever goes out in public?It sounds like you idolize people with advanced degrees for some reason, and that is weird.Also not nearly as many people enlist in the guard with even undergrads as that anon would have you think. The stats in the ANG get published annually and like 8% of people E-5 and below have undergrads or higher.The guard is undoubtedly a better deal for someone who isn't a moron. There is no reason to fucking lie about things pertaining to it.
>>51191911Average ACFT in regiment is like 550.
Could someone talk to me about army 25B? It sounds like a simple network hardware gig with light configuration work. Does that sound about right?
>>51191819>Yeah but also imagine getting potentially $100k+ in student loans paid off in a couple of monthsThey only pay up to like $50k, don't pay the interest, and the bonus is paid out over 3 years. He's still gonna have to pay a hefty chunk of his student loans back himself.t. Getting SLRP
>>51192151Nope. Its help desk and basic IT stuff.
>>51191874>lit majorNo wonder he couldn't pay off his loans himself
i joined the reenz are you proud of me
>>51192225"Basic IT stuff" to me is what I described. What is the mos for the hands-on type of stuff?
>>51190633Neck tattoo is acceptable
should i go coast guard or navy? looking at being a gunners mate in either but maritime enforcement specialist in the coasties is an option as well
>>51192787Coast Guard is where you actually be treated like an adult. Merits of being a smaller organization.
Does this movie accurately portray the difference in how an enlistedfag and an officer are treated? Are the differences really this stark?
>>51192855no and how many times are you going to post this
>>51191819There is a cap, and they dont pay it in a few months, they pay it over years.
>>51192938It's probably the same guy who posts stuff like>what kind of expensive car should I biy to impress enlisted>how many divorces has the average enlisted had>does the average enlisted really live like this [picture of filthy home off Hoarders]>what are some easy ways to impress enlisted with my bigger paycheckevery single thread.
>>51172881How should I be training cardio when it comes to runinng, biking, and an elliptical machine? I usually go all out but I read that intense cardio can cause health problems. When I don't do that I'm not sure if I'm doing enough though and I don't work up as much as a sweat.
>be me>enlist with one kidneyAnyone else ?
>>51193047You've gotta respect the dedication to the bit.
>>51192490You look hispanic.Am i right?
>>51193529I enlisted with zero health problems, but im kind of pushing it with my age.Surprisingly, they still allowed me to join.
crossposting this from /adv/hey fucking hate my life working at amazon rn getting money but living w my parents (22yo) im planning on removing this tattoo and joining and the air force and hopefully saving some money and get a college degree or just join the navy because they don't care about hand tattoos
>>51193866Go navy so you can pick your job. Go air force if you just want to work on your degree.
>>51193890No. Only time you will have to drive is during holiday block leave next month. Otherwise you have to ship it. Also, you arent allowed to get yourself to ait from basic. They force you to take their plane ticket.
>>51193881ill probably do navy im gonna try another warehouse job and if is not for me im getting the fuck outta here i don't wanna live w my parents no more
>>51193965Im not going from basic to AIT, im re-enlisting.So again, am I allowed to drive my POV to AIT?
>>51188610>how fucked am I? my fitness can only take me so far during recruit training right?shit mindset
>>51193866Navy is a better bet and you'll make rank faster.
>>51193395I've been doing sprint intervals on the rowing machine and that's helped quite a lot, obviously alongside running
>>51190422Marines and army have the dumbest enlisted. I’d say navy and coast guard has the highest quality enlisted folk. Navy is average
>>51194116Go for yeoman if you want to switch to admin instead of warehouse type work. More job availability on the outside.
>>51194414Tell me how I know from your post that you have a Marine-ready intellect.
>>51194551aw fuck yea
>>51194586My buddy re-enlisted into 11B after he already got out and he drove his ass to benning. He had to go through OSUT with the other kids, but he lived in the regular barracks and only had to show up for formations and classes (no IET bullshit). Plus the drill sgts treated him like a normal dude and not some new guy.
>>51194610Im going 25B. Gonna be weird living in the barracks with some other kids, but hopefully I can get a single living space.
>>51194641No, you will be living in the normal barracks, not the IET barracks.
>>51194732Oh fuck that's even better.
>>51190651Take the T out of Martinez and you get Maeinez.
31B seems cool
>enlisted lifer>its a desk job too, so your career was just as boring as an officersWhat compels someone to such a low goal?
>>51195023Gullible retards who fall for the bullshit lies SNCO predecessors tell their juniors for why they should stay enlisted for 20 years.
>>51172881>Coast Guard>militaryPick one. Hint: water pigs are cops, not military.
>>51195242The only people who hate the Coast Guard are cocaine smugglers and 32 ASVAB retards butthurt that they spent their whole contract as combat arms sweeping a motor pool.
>>51195252>sucking cop dick
>>51195252And yet......CG isnt military.
>>51195348So? They fall under DHS but can partially merge with the Department of the Navy during times of war, and coasties have seen action overseas in multiple wars (most notably Vietnam). I don't really understand what point you are trying to make because literally nobody in the Coast Guard gives a fuck what you think and pretty much all of us taking the big DoD dick think well of coasties. They're the only guys that are actually doing their jobs right now.
>>51195348So? There's no wars so no one else is actually doing anything.
>>51195417So does the US Public Health Services, NOAA, FBI, DEA, etc. >>51195524My unit still goes on monthly deployments for port opening missions and disaster relief missions. Peace time doesnt stop the military from doing shit.
>>51195564And all of those agencies play a role in the protection of the United States of America, same as the Coast Guard and every branch of the military.
>>51195581Except those are NOT military, just like the CG. Cope more about not being able to sign up for an actual military branch.
>>51195602Oh I get it, you're just pretending to be retarded.
>>51195624And you are pretending the CG is military, please leave the MILITARY enlistment general.
>>51175672Yeah, but the SNCOs, they're the ones who think their apple phone is, in their own words, the superior race.
>>51176922Is that from the chow hall?
>>51182963>"You lost" And we dont even notice. Just another day for everyone except the guys we left behind if ole affy
>>51174166For career? Air Force. We're at peace and most of every career is spent under peacetime conditions so it is wise to avoid getting shat on (unless you LIKE getting shat on). Then beg or fellate your way to a European or Japanese duty station and extend as long as possible. Like previous post-war eras rot sets in for a few years and those who went to war will have promotion advantage where that matters. AF cares far less. Plan for a career even if you don't plan to stay to keep your options open. Retirement then being work-optional is glorious and I've been on vacation since 2007. Those who care (or got in debt or just love the work) go contractor/DoD/Lockmart/depot civilian/GSwhatever and can double dip without penalty on their second retirement. You'll be old in five minutes so plan not to work the second half of your life then savor freedom. >>51174402God no. Never lock shit down when both of you are mental infants. First Sergeants have enough drama to deal with as it is. I only did temp First Shirt and don't envy them having to deal with mistakes of horny retards. Fuk and run. Fast.>>51175151Pics or it didn't happen. IRL we just spread semen into the thots envious locals wish they could plow (and more than a few they'd not fuck with a rented dick).>>51175412The wise never did. I read Bernard Fall as a little kid and knew the score long before enlisting (so I went USAF). Good times in West Germany and would gleefully do again even if it meant loading toddlers into napalm cans with a wood chipper. (Most travel pods were made from nape cans so the side door makes that easy.)>>51175658The military is full of right wingers and you're clearly a moron. The woke surface is mostly a smokescreen and noobs have no idea we've been through this multiple fucking times before including the 1960s. (Muh ancient SNCO retired-in-1970s bros educated me thereon.) Nothing is new.
>>51177089Cholesterol won't help your rating and heart attacks (I failed to check mine but cardio saved my ass so all I got was a stent) are exasperating. Feels like an engine block between your nipples ya can't lift off but too painfully distracting to be scary. (Not a bad way to die either if you're into that.)Autismally detailed medical documentation and learning VAspeak is not milspeak or civilianspeak will help your rating because they help you appeal your rating as I did. Periodically obtain hard copies (on fucking paper) of your medical records and cling to them like Biden to a babby. Study sites like vawatchdog and the hadit.com forums where fellow G.I.s active and retired share shit you had damn well better study like it's for a promotion. >>51177587Vaccines ain't shit but rednecks are really easy for the original schizo antivaxxers to manipulate. I remember when all they had was mimeographed sheets to pass out at flea markets. Somehow they mind-melded with white trash and the rest is hilarious history. I got Pfizered by Uncle Sugar and J&Jed locally (they don't crosscheck databases). Believing everything you read on /pol is absurd but I enjoy trolling retards there and QAnon was epic lulz. >>51177615>Stupid ass 90 IQ impulsive motherfuckers with no concept of delayed gratification are the only reason we can hit manning requirements in any serviceSo it has ever been. >>51177930The military does not defend the Constitution but vaccines aren't what you think. Stay a civilian as you share two delusions and will be disappointed by the military (and crazy is REALLY annoying to co-workers). ALL vaccines and drugs and everything else has side effects but humans suck at counting and are even worse at risk evaluation. You want to risk getting killed, maimed, TBIed, PTSDed but a little shot scares you that's been approved not just by the US but its enemies who have far more reason to worry? Wagie jobs can make money if you're not stupid.
>>51178013good info anon, ty
As of now, I love my job, and I can’t imagine anything else lighting a fire under my ass like what I currently do. If I weren’t wanting to get married, I’d totally go career. However, my girlfriend wants to live close to home when we start having kids, and that’s not going to be an option for active duty. Is my only option to leave the relationship or the military? I don’t know if I’ll ever find someone like my girlfriend again.
