What do you fine gentlemen think about military service as a way to escape the normal domestic life of the us.
I feel it would be a good way to escape, yet it comes with the price tag of giving up your freedom, but it also allows you to see the world and tuffen up so to speak.
I thought about it for a long time, though I feel I'm too old to join now I often think about doing it still, oddly enough one of the reasons was to start a career and meet a woman from out of country, but then, what would be the point if enslaved by a country that was never for you in the first place?
for me personally deep in my heart I know I'm a fighter and I would do well in the military, but sadly I know in my heart too well that the U.S is dead, and not worth fighting for in my opinion.
if you dont mind me asking....how old are you??
i cant recall the max age to enlist, but its pretty high...plus they aer scouring the prisons and deportation holding stations looking for new meat...i mean recruits so you might be in luck.
yes, if youre smart the military can offer you lots of overseas travel....most people enlist and try to get stationed close to their homes...i thought that was gay & always asked to be stationed overseas and nailed many foreign chicks and had tons of unique experiences no US citizen could encounter.
be careful tho...because just about 90% of US folks are realizing are military is just an arm of the NWO and banker cartels...we DONT fight defensive, moral or justified wars anymore....just world policing, resource stealing and military industrial complex fattening campaigns.
i couldnt in good conscious enlist today...but maybe you can get a good job and stay out of harms way and not have to kill innocent people.
marriage is a 3 ring circus: engagement ring, wedding ring and then suffering.
US military presence are usually in locations where locals detest them and the bases are enclaves of PC nonsense you find in the states.
Not to mention that you will most likely end up in a war zone at this point in time.
The US military is one of the worst options unless you want to marry a visa-seeking bar girl.
Bro, are you retarded? Let me ask that again, slowly. Are... you.... retarded?

Having been in the military for four years, I would say it's a tough decision you're going to have to make. When I was in, I was lucky to have been during a time of relative peace during the 90s and got out just after 9/11. Comparing the military back then and now is like comparing apples to oranges. Now, we're engaged in two, possibly three wars with our involvement in Libya. In fact, I'm hearing from some military guys that I know that Obama is possibly getting ready to send ground troops to Libya. I wouldn't recommend joining if I were you, but if you find yourself in a really bad economic situation and need a stable career with no chance of layoffs or firings, the military might be one of your only real options.
No. Absolutely not. You will be trapped with assholes around you constantly (not the best class of people, though some are definitely good guys). Just imagine, you can't even get a moment's peace, because there is nowhere else to go.
At this point in time, you'll get bossed around by men much younger than you.
You'll likely end up in some sand trap fighting an illegal war for international banksters who are the ones who ruined our women and plan on spreading it to the muslims with guns under the guise of *democracy*.
Unofficial stats of lost limbs are off the charts. Bro you ever seen any of those guys on CNN or NBC today show after they come back?
If the commander of your base says there is a lockdown (or whatever it is called), you will not be able to take your leave to see the women outside the base, and they certainly wont be able to come visit you.
I've personally known many friends and coworkers who served in the military. Let me point out that, just because you want to be a fighter, doesn't mean you'd get to do any fighting. For example, there are more people applying to join the USMC than what they'd accept, and even after being accepted, it doesn't mean that you get to serve as an infantry. Many end up working as desk clerks, human resource dept, warehouse, logistics, etc. Many join the air force thinking that they'd be fighter pilots, and end up loading crates on to transport aircraft. I'm not trying to be pessimistic, but you need to be realistic about it. If you really think you got what it takes, go for it and aim high -- i.e. Airborne, Army Rangers, Pararescue, etc. Don't end up as an artillery loader.
There are many other paths to going abroad. The military is the largest employer that sends people abroad, but it's certainty not the only one. If you choose the military career and cannot be a patriot, then you need to at least be a good mercenary.
Thank you all for your opinions experience and advice.
As for my age, I'm 26, so times running short for choices.
I'm vary much one to be at home in conflict, but as a lot of you already said, without morals honor and any reason past seflish political economical gains in this days wars, I can't bring my self to join at this time.
That and I don't think women are much for getting hitched to military men who they wont see for months at a time.
You're still young enough to enlist in the French Foreign Legion, and once you've completed your time in there, they give you the French citizenship. I know it's been discussed on this forum before, so do a search for it.
To add to this^, read this book: War is A Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America's Most Decorated Soldier

Yea, I almost fell into the trap of enlisting (there is a recruitment center in Rowland Heights around Spearmint Rhino) but luckily I had a good mentor and he told me that I should aim for officer school if I should do it. I was a few points away from testing into officer school and they were impressed but I quickly high tailed out of the place all together because I was so disturbed at watching grown men being ordered around and made to do menial jobs like stand post at a door all day.
The military is NOT for the thinking free sprinted people. And even at the higher ranks where you can move around, you still can't ask too many questions, if you do you will come up "missing" or "KIA." Think Pat Tillman. http://www.thehumanist.org/humanist/art ... Feb06.html
And that's how they get guys to join the military, they screw up the economy knowing that many guys will then run to enlist to feed themselves and their families.
Oh, and one more reason not to go in; the VACCINES!
In the military you are REQUIRED to be injected with many different vaccines. For some people nothing happened, but for many others they got very sick and disabled shortly after being injected.
