Every time I open this forum, there's somebody asking about how to be an officer..
It's not that complicated...
Get into a service academy
Go to a college and join ROTC
Get a degree and go to OTS
sounds about right to me
First start with learning the English language.
Looks good to me...unless you're trying to distinguish between MLA and APA. APA is more common (bastards) while MLA has become passé.
I know I use APA a lot more than MLA.
BTW, irregardless isn't a word
Damn, I'm so much better than you.
please don’t confuse all officers with pilots.
yes becasue getting in to OTS is as easy as saying "here is my degree when is my date?"
Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that "there is no such word." There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.
ok, irregardless is improper english
T'was thinkin' the same thing. It is in Webster's Dictionary.
it.. is... ok...
C-A-T -- cat!
