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?

I'm currently in the process of joining the USAF. Anyone have any tips for BMT and the Air Force in general?


It made more sense in my head.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, and our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day. Thanks for being on duty, wherever you are.

Is this still a thing? I haven't even used this site in forever and I checked this out for shits and giggles to see if people still posted. Anyways, life has changed since I used to use the forums. I've been a marine for a little over a year now, 0352 anti-tank missleman. I'm about to go on my first deployment here in a month.

Any guys still on here?

Howdy pardner! Glad to see you around again. I don't normally post in this thread but I just got back from a good stretch of leave. This coming January will mark my 2nd year in the Army. Whoopee.

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.

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.
