Been thinking about switching branches to the army and wanted some stories from army vets, and if anyone was a 91f (old 45b,or small arms repairer)
You have two types of servicemen and servicewomen. Those who can join the Army and those that wish they could!
LOL, I'm assuming your an Army vet? Lol
be careful, grass is always greener....(Army retired)
Like you i was in the Navy (13 years) and then did a year IA with the Army. It was a definite culture shock I think in the Navy your encouraged to do some independent thinking as most jobs require that, but i didn't feel that was the case in the Army. Anyway you'll find out that the no matter where you decided to go you'll do just fine.
I was 3.5 years in the Navy and 20 years in the Army. My heart was always in the Navy. If you like a dry rack and 3 square meals a day, stay in the Navy. If you want some adventure, get dirty, wet, hungry, and blisters on your feet then the Army is for you! Either choice is a great choice...it's what you make it!
I'm right around my 3.5 mark right now and I need something different. I need something that I feel serves a purpose.
I dont mind having to work my ass off, or bad conditions etc, as long as I feel like what I am doing matters.
Hating scUM since 1964
You looking active or guard? I did 5 yrs active, loved it but wanted to go to school and live a normal life. Got to travel do some really cool shit, certain units are way better than others tho 82nd airborne brain washes you into beleiving your the cats ass, then went to alaska and my unit sucked. I did 1 1/2yrs in the guard and it was a joke coming from active duty.
Lord let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who seek to destroy me.If today is my day,let me die in a pile of brass
I'm looking active, at the very least for 1 more enlistment. Then if something pops up that I cant turn down, I will go reserves and retire.
BUT at that point I'll be 11 years in and 1/2 way to retirement when I am 32.... lol hard decision..
If you go army and want to stay, become a warrant officer. It is the best of both (enlisted/officer) worlds. More pay, more respect, more freedom, and you get to stay in your job. I spent 21 years active and reserve and If you want to make a career out of it, warrant is the best way to go.
3rd Ranger Battalion. I think you can fill in the rest of my opinion.
Yeah I hear you, my brother is an e7 12 yrs in with 5th special forces group and is getting out in november, I told him hes a fool 8 more years and a retirement check, pretty sure his wife is pushing for it... Warrant is a great way to go way better retirement to, and nobody can really mess with you ours reported directly to the battalion commander.
Fifty- seven years ago I read a sign that I thought said "We feed you!". Actually it said "We Need you!" Read another sign said "Join up and climb the ladder". I thought it was the fire department. Three year later I got out of the army and enrolled at OSU so I could improve my reading comprehension. (And hang out at the Old Heidelberg.)
If you transfer, do you have to sit out a year?
Only if I go OCS! lol
I've been thinking about warrent, or getting out, going to school to finish my degree. Then going to OCS.
If you want to play Varsity join the Marine Corps. We're always looking for a Few Good Ones.
Depends on what you think is the Varsity. What is your MOS supply? come on down to Ranger Batttalion and we will show you who plays Varsity.
If I wanted to "play varsity" I'd go SEAL and stay Navy.
Know why "hilarious" is such a funny word? Because it's hilarious.
