SpiffyMasta - I am writing on here to get support from military personnel before I go to basic training in the Navy. I've made up my mind and 28 days from now I will be at basic. Chances are - I will have the internet after basic training so if you would like to make me a member - so be it.
What do I have to do to get your rubber stamp?
Nothing really, I'm not that harsh haha. You just gotta be smart enough to write coherent crap and join in on great conversations lol.

He was shocked though to find out that someone in for just 2 years is an E-5 and has done nothing to earn it.
Yea an E-5 in the Navy just doesn't mean as much as an E-5 in the Marine Corps. It's very easy to climb up the petty officer ranks. I know for a fact, E-4 is pretty much an automatic thing. Making E-4 in the Marines isn't too hard to do either if your active duty. Just by my cutting score I would have been promoted last month. Unfortunately as a reservist my score would have to be 200 points higher for me to be promoted which is kind of stupid. So my only hope is a meritorious board which is only given if you actually deserve it.
In my honest opinion there is a lot of E-4s that really don't deserve it, everyone should have to go up for a board before being able to be promoted. Especially with what they expect of you as an NCO in the Marines.

Yes the Moravas are a Brigade in the Greek Army, and I have been assigned to one of the infantry battalions that make up the Moravas.
Cool, a Greek Marine! You're more than welcome to join the club, I always find it interesting to learn about how other countries run their military.
What kind of operations are the Greek military currently running? Do you have any deployments going on anywhere?
