Hello Guys! I'm sort of curious on military life and he military in general,I think it's interesting.The military is basically just a job, where you have restrictions and stringent codes of conduct. There's many things you can do in the military.
I'll just ask 2 questions for now.
How is the military in general and what is each branch like?(Not including the obvious differences)
Marines -> Usually the most disciplined, harshest conditions, best bragging rights.
Army-> Lots of jobs, lots of people, looser regulations, long tours.
Navy-> You're on a ship, doing jobs on ships. Except for Navy pilots and Seals.
Air Force-> Mostly intelligence jobs, satellites, missiles, homeland defense, etc. 1% pilots. Best conditions for living.
Coast Guard-> Half-military, mostly department of homeland security. Limited jobs. Bases only on the coasts.
That's my summary of it.
Ha not even close when it comes to the navy!
Lot's of marines get stationed on ships especially amphibious assault ships! As for the bragging rights... Well yes maybe we don't go as hardcore as the marines or army.. But You spend 3in a half months out to sea not seeing land in sight and tell me we don't have bragging rights. Shit sucks.
But no Navy does not only work on ships, We have plenty of shore commands for sailors too. For example of the following MOS's
Gunners Mate- If you're not on a ship and you have a shore command you're most likely working in the armory handleing weapons, explosives and other ordinances. Or perhaps running the armory it's self and getting people qualified from army to marines to other sailor on how to properly fire the m9 pistol, m16 assault rifle or m14 rifle. Along with many other weapons such as the M240 or 50 caliber machine gun
Or IC's who will handle communications just like you see in the airforce commercials and make sure everything is going A OK in the whole military and they work with satellite communications just as well as ET's also.
CS's well they're just cooks but they cook for the bases too not just on ship's.
MA's (Master at arms) Basically military police stand gate guard or watch high profile people when they are on base to make sure nothing happens to them and also escort them off base. They also have many MA's on the borders of mexico to make sure no idiot military members venture there cause be honest with yourself you're not going to mexico to to buy groceries you're going there to be stupid! Plus ma's are also Military police so be careful around them.
And me personally I love working on the ship. I am a gunners mate and am a 5 inch tech at that. I love learning that weapon the few times I've had the privleage to fire the weapon myself It feels like you could take on every nation and it's armys with that weapon.
Navy is bad ass. Plus all the ports you will pull into and they women you will see my friend. I've been to 6 differnt countries, Slept with a woman from each of those countries.
Navy is the best.
