Hey, another 98G, cool. I'm a 98G PF/PL. Going over to the HUMINT side soon. I hear ya on never serving in your official MOS. Half the time I make a better MP or 12B. Where the **** were you at where you got a counselling statement for not smiling enough?
I spent eight months in Iraq, but was lucky enough to come back physically intact. Sorry to hear about the hand...I do art on the side as well...

I would not recommend joining the military at this time, unless you have a strong conviction in what the President is doing in Iraq or Afganistan since you stand a good chance of ending up there.

Officer life is fairly easy. You'll spend a lot of your time in meetings, doing paperwork, redoingthe same paperwork when it gets lost (even though you originally had 10 ,000,000 copies) and generally cleaning up the mess your predecessor left you. You'll get a lot of "look at this f-ing cherry" looks from the senior NCO's under you.
You should volunteer to jump out of planes too.Who, for Pete’s sake! Is opposing science? In fact, we want MORE science by CRITICALLY ANALIZING the evidence-Connie Morris, Kansas State BOE (bolding and underlining part of original quote, red is my emphasis)
As long as you try to treat your subjective experiences as if they were objective experiences, you will continue to be confounded by people who disagree with you.-some guy on an internet messageboard

Macistani, I ain't trying to bust yer balls too much here or lead you away from joining but I like to be brutally honest when it comes to the Army. And on top of that I'm grumpy as **** this lovely goddamn New England morning.

Last thing you wanna do is get to that absolute shithole they call "Reception Station" and change your mind and wanna quit cause you were only 89.8% sure. I've seen it happen. Then yer just a piece of **** slot burner. I hate slot burners.
Get Airborne as someone else said. And if yer going any kind of Combat Arms MOS, you sure as hell better go to Ranger School too with all the other buddy fucking O-1/2 cherries.
Also, since this is an MA board, how does it affect your MA training (excluding te obvious enhancements in Gun-fu)."We spoke to them in the only language they understood: the machine gun"

I remember such outstanding college courses that I took in the Army such as "buffthefloor 101", "scrubthegoddamnlatrine 102", "digingholesfornoapparentreason 103", one the worst was "guardtheEIBsiteontheweekend 104". My personal favorite was "ruckingformutherfuckingever 201".
Straight up, I respect the fact that you are serving your contract honorably. Best of luck to you in whatever you decide, Horatio."We spoke to them in the only language they understood: the machine gun"
