Wow there is a lot of misinformation on this forum. I sugest that anybody considering military service does some real soul searching. Like its been said before, service is not for everyone. Heck, not every branch or component is right for everyone. Training and continued service is hard, not just on you but everyone you love. Make sure to think about where you and they might be at the end of your contract. If you're still interested then go to a recruiter, however some are better than others. Thats all I'll say about that (I luckily had one of the good ones though). I'm a medic in the National Guard, and I love it! Its one of the three things that makes me who I am. Just don't join because it's a job. Join because you love your country and/or state and want to protect those around you.

Asperger's syndrome makes me automatically disqualified from military service. And I have no interest in it either, I'm a pacifist. Anyone tries to recruit me, I play the Autism Spectrum Disorder card.

But if you consider doing it then there are several things to take into consideration; it will be physically and mentally challanging, it will be hard on your friends and family and your access to anime could get cut off. Jokes aside: Talk to your loved ones, do the research and think it through.

No offense, but I really dislike the military, especially the Navy.

Someone I used to know studied journalism at first, never having to pay any tuituion due to being on schlarships. And given the recession and his not finding a job (but then again, he was asocial and hated dealing with people), he decided to go into the Navy. He's in Japan now, as a medical assistant (ironic, considering he's an actual psychopath) and probably using up all his money on videogames.

To me, that seems cheap and cowardly.

I really like the military genre...


but joining? Hell no. I would never serve this country. Even with DADT repealed I wouldn't, plus I have asthma so I couldn't if I wanted.

I've done a lot of dumb things in my life but enlisting was the dumbest. Being in the army is 90% learning to accept bullshit and doing what your told without thinking about the consequences.

Its on my list of options.

When it comes to doing military service, you have to think it through first. I know lots of people who brashly went into service just so they could take advantage of the benefits, or how simple it is to join...... but its hard work. And you never know if your gonna get stationed somewhere dangerous. There are also people I know who joined, simply because its something they've wanted to do since they were kids. For me, those people are very much deserving of praise. Even those who joined foolishly sometimes come out more calm and levelheaded, and has no regrets to joining. So, yeah. It can either be a rewarding, worthwhile experience, or it could be hell on Earth for you.

Military is against my pacifism values. So is the development of nuclear weapons.

Countries need to stop forming these barbaric groups... it's a Bronze Age thing... We don't live in those times anymore.

I would only join if it's not corrupt as Hell.

I'm too soft for military life. They would eat me up.

I could probably do good in the military, but they're too conformist. Plus, I would have to give up my long hair, something I don't wanna do.

Brother was in Marines
Parents were in Navy
I took Asvab and it said I would make a great intelligence officer. But my medical history makes it impossible for me to join.
