I'm pretty sure it's every nationality. There's a few Australians and Canadians that post here, but I THINK you're the first from the UK. Are you potential military or already in?

haha...the RAF was renown as the #2 air force in the world, next to the USAF...the only reason we have the best air force is because of our size and aircraft number...but all in all, the RAF was the best in term of skills and wars fought...

If you want real action, go Navy Corpsman. They are attached to Marines, cause we don't have our own medics. I have the utmost respect for Corpsmen, those guys will save your life and know how to do it any day of the week, under fire. It takes a special kind of person to be a combat medic altogether either way. They see shit you wouldn't believe and they get to fix it.

Being an Army medic is better in term of action...there are over 1,000 Army medics in active duty all over the world, with 600+ in combat duty...the medics over there in the Army are pretty hardcore...I personally know a medic in Iraq who've saw more than 30+ people died in his hands...

it take a special kind of guts and courage to be a medic for any armed forces...I contemplated being a medic when I was deciding to join, but took a 2nd thought about it...Navy officer is great, you get to control people and oversee a great weapon of power

Definitely, but I'm not gonna plod along into the US and want to join your Air force.

i like the British way, but even if i wasn't involved in a War, or reconnaissance, whatever they do, then it would be awesome to Join the Red Arrows, obviously you have to have amazing skill but you know, i can Dream.

I will be heading to Somalia tomorrow, so I will only be on a few times. The US have launched a major campaign to eradicate the pirates there. Myself and 4 other USN ships will be heading there to meet up with an international group of 15 ships to push onto the pirates' base off the nation's coast. I will be taking operational control of the carrier, as the Captain is heading back to the states.

I'm kind of pumped up for my 1st ever command of a major ship.

Peace out, Lt. Chris Fuller , USS Reagan Op. Officer

I'd rather trust my life on that Corpsman in that case.

That was a bad analogy. The medics in my company were bad ass. They would take pieces of people and put them back together. And that shit gets hard on a day to day basis. I've got nothing but respect for those dudes. Hike around on the mountains of Afghanistan with all your gear, then the bullets start flying and you gotta pick up a wounded person and take their ass to cover, which can be a LONG ways away sometimes. Then still manage to patch them up. My company hasn't lost a single soldier in Afghanistan thus far.

About a week or two into basic training you'll have chamber day. You'll walk inside the gas chamber (which is just a concrete room with drill sergeants cooking the CS on a bunsen burner) holding your breath, and while inside, you have to put on your gas mask. This is just to make sure you have learned how to properly put on the gas mask when the area is contaminated. It's pretty easy to do, but it's not something you want to mess up, otherwise you're gonna be sucking the whole time you're in the chamber. Your gas mask will filter the air from the outside, but if you've got CS INSIDE your gas mask since you didn't clear it all out when you put it on, then you're still gonna be breathing it in. Then they make everyone take off their masks and stand there for a a minute or two, just to show you the gas mask really is working. On to what i'm sure is the main thing you're wondering about.

It sucks, but it's not terrible. It makes your skin itchy a little bit, but not really enough to care about. The main thing that fucks you over is breathing it in. It makes the insides of your lungs itch like a mother fucker and within a minute, you'll have more snot coming out of your nose, and more drool running out of your mouth than you ever thought possible. The main thing that fucked everyone was holding their breath for so long after they took off their mask, that they had to take huge breaths of air to catch their breath, taking in a lot of CS really quickly. Those are the guys that really got it bad. What you want to do is hold your breath for as long as you can comfortably do, then take small, slow breaths. It doesn't hurt unless you take a deep breath and get it way back inside your lungs. Just try and stay calm, but it still isn't gonna be pleasant. Within a minute of getting out you'll be busting up laughing at how much snot is all over you, so it's not like misery. I'd do it again.

Nah don't worry about it. Nobody in my unit really takes shit like that to heart. You can't really know what those guys do, and they don't really care if you do or not, because it's not about you. It's just about looking out for their guys. Don't take that the wrong way, I'm just saying that all our medics were just these real mellow laidback guys who did their jobs and that was it. No bitching, No ego. They're a rare breed.

You have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours would eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be.

Canada has a fairly low casualty rate. Our vehicles do fairly well (so far) against most IED's and RPG's.

Not if you go to west point as ROTC. If you can go to west point as just a college student, and then enlist afterwards, then yes you can. You'll only come in as an e-4 though. Your best bet after doing all the work to get through west point is to just become an officer. The pay and benefits are way better. You get to live off base when we all live in the barracks.

You can join the army with a 4 year college degree and come in as an E-4. I REALLY wouldn't recommend it though man. 4 years of sucking, and all you get is an 18 month head start on everyone else, as that's about how long it takes someone to get promoted to E-4 fresh out of high school. If you want to go enlisted for sure, then I'd say skip out on college for now, enlist right out of high school, and then use your GI bill later to pay for your college when you get out, or you can try and squeeze in online classes while you're in. College really doesn't help you out too much on the enlisted side.
