Good luck in your endeavors Macistani. And about SERE.... uhhh.... no comment. I think my experience there might have lead to my subconcious desire to use avatars of the hillbilly rapists from Deliverance. :eusa_eh:"We spoke to them in the only language they understood: the machine gun"

Here, I'll throw some honest, heart-felt advice into this thread instead of being my normal (elitist/asshole) self. Let this be a good lesson to all you folks out there who may be intending to join or whatever. Listen very carefully, and let it sink in real good.
Quitters are like a disease.
You let a person with a quitters mentality to infest your AO, and it will destroy you.
Just recently, my good friend and his sadistic, evil comrades just took 100 Paratroopers, who had just graduated Airborne school and were ready to start their next challange. The cadre smelled blood, and one person quit, then another, and another, until only a few hours into the new challenge, over 30% of the class had quit. A day or so later, and nearly HALF of the class had quit.
It all started with one quitter. He quit, and then all the other quitters saw how easy it is to give up on oneself. Quitters spawn weakness, and should be shunned always.
I don't care whether you go in to become a Green Beret or a cook, but whatever it is that you go in for, don't quit. Sometimes it will suck no matter what but stick it out, and see it through."We spoke to them in the only language they understood: the machine gun"
