sup planet bob!

I Recently got accepted into the United States Naval Academy, wo0t. :P Can't wait to graduate high school , may 30th. wo0t :P Senioritus is killing me though.... :mellow:

I applied to the Academy because I want to be an Infantry Officer in the Marine Corps :jihad: :jihad: .There's a range of reasons why I'm doing this, none of which most the folks I hang with understand. Marines are just dog on proud of everything they do, they're rough and tough, and don't take kind to complaining. Giv'em a toothpick and a hand-grenade, -if-uncle-sam-can-spare-one, and they'll go out and do their duty.

A lot of it comes from just , i always remembering being fascinated with the military. Until late last year i never thought that I would be going into the military. But if I wasn't reading about it, I was watching about the military on TV, playing First Person shooter video games, or PC strategy games, and if all else failed-, anything really anything with a handle could be used as a pretend-gun. I got caught using a broom once, lol.

So yeah dudes, spend all your life reading about the military, and not once do remember every glorifying a truck driver, or a mechanic. We need 'em but I just always looked up to the Grunts. You know the guys with mud on their faces, and dirt in every orifice of their body. Hadn't had a clean shower in months and have rough beards too match. Cut up all over and living from this adrenaline high/crash to the next one. Always pissed at an idiot officer, and always kissing the feet of their NCO's; and on rare occasions the opposite. Yeah man, You can give me all the money in the world, but I want to be a grunt.

Now strictly speaking I will be going to a US Service Academy, and when I graduate I'll be an officer. BUT in the Infantry, Offices can be just as good a bullet-stopper as an enlisted man :lol: . har har. Gotta love the Corps when it comes to Officers eat last, welfare of your subordinates before your own. I hear some rumors that that's slowly drifting away. Like someone told me today that Officers get to sleep in cot's on the field. Man that's some serious bull. An officer should be lying in the dirt besides his troops, right after he helps them with their foxholes and defensive positions. You know, I think I'd make a great officer. -However- one thing I've found out from hanging out on Marine forums, is that they don't take kindly to wannabe's , so best to just shut up and listen to them tell each other their stories. I've learned alot.

I was wondering if any service members who read this could post about their experience. It's be awesome to hear them. Also any wannabe's like me could discuss why they're doing what they're doing. LOL, anybody else get called crazy on a daily basis?

Enlisted to be able to afford college, also to work with cutting edge technology (I'm 25B, IT Specialist).

Ever since being in the Navy, my dad's taught me a lot of nifty phrases - like "The Few, The Proud, The Bulletsponges" aka Marines. USMC = Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. And

But if I were to enlist in any branch of the military, it'd probably be the Navy. Nothing's more fun than sitting back and watch guys like you do the hard work. I don't think Iraq has any navy yet.

If anything, I'd join the air force because of my heritage, although since the heritage is that my dad and his dad were pilots, and my vision is shot, there's nothing. But, all of you going into the armed forces, I salute you.

Also, don't watch Full Metal Jacket or Jarhead before going into the MC.

So you're gonna be a Marine? This is probably premature, but still...

Semper Fi

Do or die OOO-RAH! yeah I've got to earn the motto.

Semper Fi, bro.

=/ It's OK. Whenever the Marines need a ride to a fight, Navy gives 'em a nice ride :)

I plan to join the US Army if I don't get into collage, and with my current grades that just might happen.

If I do get into collage I'm aiming for Westpoint.

The only question is, Armored or Infantry? :P

Getting into West Point isn't easy. Since most Service Academy application processes are standardized I could probably answer any question you have.

I say go infantry all the way. why? who cares just do it. har har. Hardest job in the military. Every body else just exist to support them. No Infantry no victory. And since you are doing army >_> , might as well g to Airborine school, Air Assault school, and Ranger school. I'm going to try to get to all those schools during my summers at the academy.

Army has a lot of variety only good thing I can think of them. 10 mountain, 101st Airborne, 82nd Airborne, 1st Infantry Division, 75th Ranger Regiment, 2nd Infantry Division, 1st Calvary Division, and on and on.......

Ubie, I know a tanker, he hated it for one reason.

You're the, very large, target of everyone with everything ever made in every battle.

Ive wanted to join the military, the army as infantry, for a while now but im too fat and too unfit at the moment but I am working at it. A better diet and a lot more exercise is helping.

hey man, the army doesn't take perfect people and lower them down to soldiers. They take regular people and build up into soldiers. Don't be discouraged, the fact that you actually want to go into the military means a lot. I say see if you can get into your local recruiting station's DEP (Delayed Entry Program) they do a lot of PT stuff to get you up to speed. Never give up.

Well I have headed down to my local army recruitment office and they have my details and measurements but they said I was't within the weight parameters to really apply and said to come back when I had reduced my weight which is cool as thats what I plan to do. Also I live in England so the process might be slightly different to yours?

Probably more than just slightly different.

Wanted to join the AF myself. Due to especially rare bone disorder I was born with I am unfortunately unsuitable for just about any branch of the service.. even if i did outgrow it, they won't risk me trying it.

lol lie your $@! off. That's what everybody does. If anybody has any beef with that, you can look up how many Medal Of Honor , Distinguish Service Cross, Silver Stars, Bronze starts etc, have been given to men who lied their $@! of about their age . And if you go back and look up the ones that lied about medical conditions, and especially ASTHMA?? oh boy.
