Proud? Happy? Sad? Fearful?
Proud. I'd bet your odds are higher dying from binge drinking than the military.
Are they gay also?
Scared to death.
It had better be the fucking US Gyrenes or he wasted his life.
If so they shouldn't have been allowed to enlist in the first place.
I support my kids no matter what
If it was because he thought he had no other prospects in life, I'd be bummed. If it was because he wanted some good on the job training and could make bank off of those skills and take care of me later in life, I'd be super into it.
I tell my children dying for their country is for other people. "We're not hero's. When we see danger we run and hide!"
I did that to my parents and Dad was very proud . Mom was happy that Dad was happy but she was scared for me.
i'd be happyish. there is nothing wrong with wanting to serve your country or prove yourself. well, there didn't used to be.
it was a good experience for me.
and it would kind of depend on what part of the military. their experience as a marine will be quite different than their experience as an air force person.
I'd shit a brick.
I wouldn't want him on the front lines, for selfish reasons. Also the increased number of combat missions and the bleak landscape of these conflicts has been leading to an unprecedented level of depression and suicides within the military. If he joined, I would hope it would be the navy. He likes boats and the water and there would be less chance of dying in some desert.
I heard Air Fags get to play video games while in boot camp.
I can't remember my parents' reaction when I told them I was enlisting.
I do remember my mom having a fit when I told her I volunteered to extend my contract in order to go to Iraq. Even though I 23 at the time it still was not a fun convo.
Depends who was president. The ones who get us involved in useless foreign conflicts would make me hesitate to advise it even though I served myself.
no but we did get to get drunk and fuck the women air people.
we used to laugh at grunts and jarheads. we're air conditioned and they have fans. totally different worlds.
Enlisted vs. OCS or one of the academies is a huge difference. I have a cousin who had the Navy pay for law school and he is a JAG now and about to retire. Set for life. 8 weeks of basic and a few long tours on a carrier but never saw a live round in real world.
They moved him and his family all over the world. Paid for everything. Lives in DC now. Still owns his first home in San Diego free and clear and rents it for $5,000 a month. Gravy.
Pentagon is bloated with non-combat staff. My idea has always been to have high school grads do two years non-combat before they can go to college. No pay. Serve the country.
our officers loved to goof on them and let us know how much better our lives were than theirs.
