I wouldn't say it was the best thing I've ever done, but it has had a positive impact on just about every aspect of my life and career.
only when I'm shooting large caliber, extremely destructive weapons.
It's having a great impact, but a 3 year contract would of made it 10000x better then a 5 year.
Probably the worst thing I ever did. Only a month left. But I AM glad I did it. Just not for me.
When I start actually using my military benefits and going to school instead of being a lazy ass then it'll be the best thing I ever did
I'm thinking of joining. Not for any monetary or school reasons. Actually it would really set me back in my career. But, I really think I need something to kick my ass and make me a man.
it's a love/hate relationship.
The best thing I have ever done was spit into the wind at Pali Highway lookout.
i hope it's not, I'm sure it will be great, but i know I've done better things in the past, and plan on doing more so in the future. But i barley just got in, so i cant say, not bad so far.
I am absolutely hating life right now, but becoming a Marine is the best thing i've ever done and I won't ever regret it.
Not the best thing I ever did... but I think it saved me from my self destruction (drinking, drugs, no career path). I can say I did something with my life now, and I'm proud of it. Hopefully my kids (in the future) will look up to something like that. The military has provided me with some pocket money and a "fresh start" even though it pushed me back in schooling about 2 years just being a reservist.
Same here. I look at the rest of my friends and they can't seem to stay out of trouble. It really set my life straight. I also work full time for the Army now and I wouldn't be where I am if i never joined.
at 20 years old, it is by far the best thing I've ever done in my life.
before i joined the navy i had no real outlook on life, no plans or future goals. i had no idea what i wanted to do. i liked wrenching on motorcycles, so i picked a mechanical job...i now have a trade that i really enjoy and can use in the civilian world someday when i get out. the thing that i appreciate the most though, is the fact that the military has also made me realize i can do things i never thought possible. the military has made me realize my dream, and i'm going after it now. in about six months i'm submitting my package for eod.
worst decision i've made. and i have ever-growing contempt for the military with each passing drill weekend.
3 years left ftmfl
I signed up here yesterday, but I already think this place is really cool.
Where has the motivation gone devil dog?
How much can I get for a 2005 Saab 92X Aero, with 31,000 miles, and all options except sunroof?
this is also true.
Long term advancements, and the experience gained.
i got a skill that will really help me in the future with the job i want
at the same time..i sorta wish I would have only done 4 instead of 6
(but i might change my mind again when my bonus comes)
not the best thing, but definately a good experience for me. like someone said earlier, it's a love/hate relationship. theres times where you absolutely hate it, then others where you love being there. In all I think it was a good choice and an experience not everyone can say they've been through.
Even with all the bullshit, still think it is the best choice I've made.
