Because you came on here and said you wanted to be an Army, rather than Navy or Air Force, pilot because it's easier. You, an 18 year old, implied that you had any knowledge whatsoever of what this job or getting this job is like.

 

Donnie, you are out of your f*cking element.

My limited experience in an airplane is that it is very different flying than a helicopter.

 

You might look around for an introductory flight in a helicopter, buy an hour or so if you nothing else offers before you direct yourself to the goal of becoming a professional- especially military, they do literally and figuratively own you.

 

Until you get your feet wet, you don't know how the water is. This is nothing like what I thought it would be forty-seven years ago. I know a lot of professionals (doctors, lawyers) who hate what the spent about a decade learning to do. That's sad, but they're almost always knocking down decent coin, whereas a disappointed pilot is broke and unhappy at work...

As an ex-leg, who's hopped out of a few helo's in theater, I resent this statement.

 

For the record, some of the smartest guys you will ever meet are presently serving as infantryman, and some of the dumbest. Just saying...

 

Had to say it, that is all.

 

No offense meant. That was a statement against his attitude, as opposed to his intelligence. As in: a little bit of time in the infantry might straighten him out. But he's got to be a troll. Just...has to be. So, it's a moo point.

Fair enough...

 

I like steak...

Shindig, you can google, yes?

"Turns out the "cell phone" rumor is true. Recruits in many (not all) Army Basic Training platoons are now allowed to use personal cell phones to call friends and families, send text messages, and to update their Facebook and Myspace status.

 

Not all the time, of course. Prior to the new "cell phone program," well-performing platoons were often rewarded with a phone call home on Sundays. To take advantage of this, recruits would have to stand in line at pay phones and call using a calling card, or call collect. Phone calls were generally limited to just a few minutes to make sure everyone in the platoon had a chance to call.

 

Under the new policy, cell phones are kept by the Drill Sergeant, and returned to recruits for a period time each Sunday, if the DS feels the platoon "earned" the privilege. Of course, recruits who don't have a cell phone are still allowed to use the old pay phones.

 

In a way, this kind of makes sense. One of the reasons the US Military is so successful is that they are willing to take full advantage of new technology. Most adult members of our society carry a cell phone these days. New military recruits generally have a cell phone with them all the time, following basic training. Some military members even use cell phones to call home from overseas assignments."
