What are the benefits?. I want to become a peace keeper and how would i do that?
Benefits of the military are great. Gives you an advantage over people equally qualified with you while searching for jobs. A lot of money while you are in. Depending on how long you stay in, possible benefits after you get out.
There are too damn many to list!
You're a canadian citizen? can't help you much there.
i am sure there others
1)any branche that you join will own you for minimunm of 2 years or more
2)you may get killed
(i hope i do not get banned from this board by telling disadvantages of joining the military
Woops...Canadian eh? You can always play professional hockey?
You get travel discounts among other things, I can't think of them all at the moment.
someone want to give me the english translation of that last sentence?
and yes, these are the risks inherent in our job. We choose to accept them for the greater good.
What branch ONLY owns you for 2 years? I know for the Army you are owned for a minimum of 8.
2 year active enlistments are now in the army and air force (maybe others.) You're in for that 2 years, plus a 6 year commitment to the inactive reserves. Basically, if they need people... you're the last people they'd call up before starting a draft.
Why? A non-citizen can enlist in the U.S. military.
So you are owned for 8
2 year contract i mean. Correct me if i am wrong and then you can resign contract or get out of active duty
A non-citizen can enlist in the military. However, federal law prohibits non-citizens from becoming commission or warrant officers.
In order for a non-citizen to enlist in the military, he/she must first be a legal immigrant (with a green card), permamently residing in the United States. It's important to note that the military cannot and will not assist in the immigration process. One must immigrate first, using normal immigration quotas and procedures, and -- once they've established an address in the United States -- they can find a recruiter's office and apply for enlistment
you can, but it's VERY hard to do. The end result of you getting out early (wihtout a DAMN good reason) can screw up your employment chances after.
True and it is done all the time. Went to Basic with a Romanian and had a German in my unit.
The Romanian was cool as hell. He was in their military as a SF medic before coming to the US to join the Army. He said he dream he whole life was to be a soldier for the United States of America. Was some motivation.
nice. one of our staff's was puerto rican, and had been in the country 3 days before going to boot camp. Had the TI convinced that he didn't speak english
I was talking to my Marine recruiter and he told me this story about one of the kids he recruited who absolutely hated boot camp more than the average recruit and wanted nothing more to get out of it and go home, he tried everything and eventually went to sick bay and they gave him a psych evaluation and he told the psychologist that he was gay and therefore should be kicked out and sent home, so the doctor told him to go suck the dicks of everyone in his platoon and if he did that the doctor would get him out under the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, needless to say he stayed in and eventually graduated
