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)
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.

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.

You still have most of your sailors on ships. Hence the name sailor.

Because the Navy is the only one to do that? Right.....

Fixed for accuracy.

So I'm going to Parris Island for a week with the young marines in July. I'll turn 17 while I'm there, so hopefully I will be able to enlist when I get back. Gave the recruiter my number a while back; he said he would call me in May. Still waiting to hear from him.

Say hi to the sand fleas for me.

I never regretted being a Hollywood Marine. Although we can always have a debate on what's worst, all the creepy crawlers at Parris Island, or the deadly hills of Southern California.

Gladly.

And since the damn recruiter never called me back, and I'm turning 17 on the 11th, can someone tell me how to get in contact with a recruiter? I talked to him at my school, so I don't know how to find a phone number or address of a recruiting station. The training officer with my Young Marines Unit wants to go with me when I talk to the recruiter, he used to be a recruiter in the Marine Corps (in fact, he said the reason he left is because being a recruiter he saw a side of the corps he didn't like) and and he wants to make sure I don't do anything to screw myself over.

Oh, and we heard back from instructors at PI, and it is certain that we will be on the rappel tower while we are there :( I'm pretty sure I will have to be pushed off.

You should probably be able to find information about recruiters on the internet I would imagine.

GOOGLE IT =)

or the marines.com website I bet.

Yeah, I went to the marines.com website and got the phone number and address. Now I just need to sneak over there and talk to them without my mom knowing haha. She keeps telling me that she wants to be there, and she will give me consent to enlist at 17. But yet every time I bring it up she puts it off, so I would like to at least go over and get some of my questions answered.

My week at Parris Island was... interesting. The Gunnery Sergeant that is the CO of a Young Marine Unit (and a former DI) brought it to the attention of both our Drill Instructors and and the rappel instructors that it was my birthday. And he brought it to their attention as I was stepping right onto the top of the fucking tower.

It went like this:

Gunny: Hey Guide!!
Me: AYE SIR!!
Gunny: What's today?
Me: 7/11 SIR
Gunny: What's significant about that, guide?
Me: ...IT'S A LUCKY NUMBER SIR
Gunny: It's also your birthday, right?
Me: ....
DI: SAY SOMETHING GUIDE
Me: AYE SIR, YES SIR IT IS
* Drill instructor's eyes light up*

So the rappel instructor slacked me, and I hit the wall kind of hard but it was pretty fun. And then they had me do it again, so I could do it once correctly. Usually I am terrified of heights, but I thought it was pretty fun. And then they gave me another present by having me do the gas chamber twice. It obviously wasn't full power since we were minors, but it still hurt really fucking bad; the real thing is going to be completely horrible. The instructor said that it was just the left overs from the day before when some recruits went through, but Gunny said that they were lying and some recruits had been through that morning. The good thing about experiencing that though, is that at least now I know what to expect. It's still going to be horrible, but I know what to expect and I won't panic when I do the real thing.

On another note, I learned that Drill Instructors despise NJROTC cadets. There were some from some state up north the same time period that we were there, and the DIs sure did give them hell. They still got on us real bad, but they gave the cadets extra attention. One, Cadet Morrow, was especially funny to watch be dealt with. He started crying while the instructors were demonstrating the rappel tower, and so the DIs got all over him until he was balling. Then they had him stand in front of the tower and scream "MOMMY SAVE ME, MOMMY SAVE ME, MOMMY SAVE ME" for a while.

I'm sort of considering joining the military. I'm from Canada and posted in this club once when I was in junior cadets last year. I got both my White & Red stars and sort of enjoyed it. I've even listed my pros and cons in case I do register for the army sometime in the future, even though I'm only 17 right now. Most 17 year old Canadians aren't as keen on fighting terrorists than some categories but I like to research lots about democracy in the middle east, units tracking down ring leaders and I have dozens of books on soldiers of war. Anyway, here's the list I made.

Pros
-Extremely fast for my age
-Knowledgeable about military history
-Willing to make sacrifice for freedom
-Great sense of humour (I had to include this)
-I have some decently high academics

Cons
-Not to strong upper body strength
-Can't go 10 minutes without a drink
-Somewhat bad temper

I'm also just convinced that even if I did suck it up and sign up when I'm old enough that I just wouldn't make it because of so many little flaws that would bug me.

Well shit. I have a cyst on my lower back (it's not a big deal, it doesn't hurt or itch or anything), and apparently that is a disqualifier. I am going to have to get surgery (after which you cannot do any physical activity for 4 FUCKING WEEKS) and then wait an extra 6 months before I will be eligible to enlist again.

Went to MEPS on Thursday and was treated to a full serving of medical checkups with a side of TAPAS (I took ASVAB prior). Took my Oath, signed the contract, yadda yadda yadda, qualified for everything so I'm all set to enter the Army. My MOS is 68W, so if I for any reason get deployed to the frontlines in Afganistan, I hope they don't put medics on their priority hit list. The bastards probably do.

If all goes well, I ship off to boot around the later of half of this coming January. I hope I don't die :P

I know the military isn't about making friends or chilling with buddies all of the time, but I am worried about the fact that I haven't bonded with any of the other guys that I have met at MEPS (been twice on an overnight stay) besides one.

I make friends pretty easily usually and I become pals with just about every person that I meet, but most people I see joining seem quite strange to me. They aren't what I was expecting at all. Most seemed very out of shape, nearly all of them were socially awkward to say the least, weren't very bright, and the majority were taking everything FAR to seriously.
Whenever an Airmen at the base would instruct us on what to do, I would reply with a respectful "Yes sir". 90% of the other recruits would bellow "AYE AYE SIR!!" as loud as they could. I didn't see the need for all that since we were just here to get our blood drawn and have a vision test.

Whenever we were talking about what jobs we were signing for I told them that I was planning on an intelligence job. Most guys were like "LOLOL CHAIR FORCE AMIRIGHT, I'M GONNA BE TEH RECON SNIPER" and "I JUST WANNA BLOW UP TOWELHEADS" despite being borderline on the weight limit and not looking like they could run 50 feet. I knew that
Thankfully most of the AF guys seemed a lot more chill. In general the most common personality type seemed to be people with cripplingly low self-esteem and social skills trying to prove how much of a hardass they are and not really having a career plan.

I know this all seems judgmental and petty, but I really don't want to be miserable and friendless the whole time I am in the Air Force. Maybe it is something that I am just not getting and I should be more formal?

Hi, I've posted in this crew a few times approximately around the time I was in a local cadets. I've returned as I'm considering joining Canadian Infantry. I know most of you are American but I'm hoping at least a few Canadian military members are in this crew, I'm just having a few tough decisions to make like whether to join Regular or Reserve. I know in these upcoming years the Canadian army will be experiencing a huge down time with us completely leaving Afghanistan and whatnot.

Anyway, a few of the questions I would like answered if there's any Canadians or people that would have knowledge of such things are in this crew. First off was the decision I mentioned previously of whether to join Regular or Reserve. I'm aware of the benefits of each, but I would also like to see some semi-long term deployments as an infantry soldier. Also, I've heard from some friends that a lot of airborne training is required to in the infantry. This may sound pathetic for someone wanting to join Canadian infantry but I'm afraid of heights. So, yeah that's about all I was wondering.

The army isn't exactly officially hiring Regular personnels, however, you still able to join. Regular or Reserve, commission or not, you will receive the same beginner trainings. You might hear of BMQ in cadet. It's not as tough as most people hyped it. By my own experience, Regular is harder to join. On Reservist, you actually get a stable career with isn't that much riff raff of the military weight over your shoulder, since you're part-time.

I had feared a lot of shit before joining military (acrophobia included!). But trust me, once you're in, you will banish your fears like they're not there. Isn't the goal of joining military is to make you stronger?

Head over to Army.ca, join and find out more. Forces.ca info is too vague, they won't help you answer a lot of your questions. Read this, gonna help you. This forum is for fitness/training/course/req. Ask question here about recruitment. Browse around, and best, ask questions.

Wow, thank you for the help! There's so much more information, especially since Forces.ca was in fact the one I was using. I was getting some decent info on infantry but Army.ca really has bushels of info for me to read. But yeah I've been hearing about how the upcoming period could be a downtime for the CF because we currently have so many experienced people yet were without need for them. Thanks a bunch for the info though, I appreciate it.

I'm currently in engineer and it's the easy going branch of military, as least to me. I'm not a warmonger however I have the greatest urge to participate in a major war. I had the same feel when US announced it would apply military action to Syria. I guess it would be very long time before I have my chance to see any action.

Anyone here stations at CFB Petawawa?

Ah, fair enough. Sometimes I wish I'd get deployed, it sucks working for a unit that has no need for you so you get shafted with all the bitchwork.


Happily ETS'd.

This winter marks my full 1st year in military. A long way to go. Merry Christmas, fellow soldiers. Merry Xmas.

Well everyone has their place, and bitch work has to get done. You could work for a unit that has an operation tempo that's practically unheard of and suicides like every weekend. It's not exactly fun either.
