Brooker said:From what I've seen of my friends who joined the military, they got out with no money and no useful skills to help them get a job. Sure they weren't the most driven guys to begin with, but their time in the military seemed like a complete waste of time as far as the paths of their lives were concearned.
Maybe the fact that they weren't the most driven people to begin with was the problem with having no money and no skills!
1. If you are single, you pay for no food, no boarding. That's about $700/month you could save if you wanted to! Most guys get out broke because they go out drinking all of the time and piss their money away on "buy me drinkie" girls all over the world!
2. No skills? Let's see, you leave the service after 4 years of working in the IT field. You get $60,000-$100,000 of schools for free while in service along with all of the qualifications/accredidations. Not to mention that while you are in you can go to college for free (except books). Why would you get out with no skills? Oh that's right, you failed to apply yourself after school. That caused you to be a nuisence at work which gets you on a working party detail which takes you away from work! You get out...put your former supervisor down on a Job application as a reference, and he tells the truth! You are a worthless piece of shinola and he wouldn't hire you if you were the only candidate! (usually this won't happen, military takes care of their own even if we don't like you!) The fact is, the way you carry yourself tells a lot about you! IF you aren't worth a crap the world will know anyway!
No way! We had to fight tooth and nail for it! And sometimes you have to keep fighting for it or someone else will take it away!You guys think freedom just fell out of the damned sky one day?
You don't have to take away freedom to get freedom.
No you don't...but you do have to fight in order to keep it sometimes! Nothing in life is free! And sometimes maybe you should give back for some of the freedoms you are enjoying....like being able to express your feelings on this board!
