...find things on memebase

IIT. at MIT Drill Sergeant. I told my soldiers
to write Fall paragraph at two about why they

Well if he was being serious he obviously doesn't belong in the military, he probably thinks this little "adventure" of his is going to be fun and games and actions like in his call of duty video games, yet seeing people blow up in front of you and killing other human being's is not what that's all about... that's why most of the people who play video games fail basic training because they're unfit and all they did was play video games all day thinking going to a real war would be fun and exciting... well they're in for a rude awakening.

Sorry dude, it's kinda lame you're getting red-thumbed. You have a fair point, and I was just making a joke (:
Anyway, LOTR is still awesome, I admire people seeking adventure, and committing to the military is incredibly respectable.
User avatar #106 to #74 - aviators (02/06/2013) [-]
just saying, my cousin joined the army and before that he was a high school grad who played call of duty non stop. He's ranked as a Sergeant , but he's been in the army now, for at least 4 years.

(Mind you i have no clue on the ranking system so i'm guessing that, that is an average rank for his service time.)
User avatar #215 to #106 - aviatrix (04/18/2013) [-]
I never realized how similar our names are.
#89 to #74 - Rascal (02/06/2013) [-]
this isnt ******* call of duty. this is lotr. go drop your call of duty and yourself in the mountain of fire for ever associating dreams of life being like lotr with dreams of life being like call of duty.

SO much better than the jerkwads in my unit who are only doing it for paid tuition.
User avatar #40 to #34 - deansg (02/06/2013) [-]
why is doing it for tuition not a legitimate thing? Risking your life and helping your country only to get paid for studies is still admirable imo
User avatar #51 to #40 - aviatrix (02/06/2013) [-]
Eh you have a good point. But it's not just tuition. It's also job assurance and a steady salary. A really great deal if you ask me, but I think committing to the military has to be deeper than that.
User avatar #207 to #51 - deansg (02/07/2013) [-]
idk, in my country military service is mandatory, so for me anyone willing to do it voluntarily (even if primarily because of money) should be welcome
#72 to #51 - tranminh (02/06/2013) [-]
don't you get only 20, 000 as a private? that's not very much money, steady or not
User avatar #100 to #72 - vishnapalm (02/06/2013) [-]
The benefits are still ridiculous
User avatar #112 to #100 - aviatrix (02/07/2013) [-]
>>>This. And 20,000 isn't horrible if you're not a college grad. Also, after tech school, you'll come out as an E-2 or even E-3, which has a higher pay grade.

Personally,I'll eventually come out as an officer and paid tuition + signing bonus + O-1 salary is a pretty sweet deal. Nonetheless, I still think you have to be more than grateful for a job and money to be fighting for the nation. But that's just me. Sorry for patronizing.
#122 to #112 - tranminh (02/07/2013) [-]
no it's okay, I'm Canadian so the government pays for a lot of my education for me since my parents don't make all that much.

Also not trying to sound like a dick, but I like to explore other perspectives. So why do you believe you are fighting for your country instead of fighting for people with money?

For example American foreign interest has never been to the best interest of humanity, in fact before the 2nd world war they preferred to be isolationist. So why is it do you believe that going into another country and imposing your own ideals (democracy, human rights etc.) is a good thing?

Because those people over there believe that without foreign intervention they would be much better off (which is shown when America supplied the Muhajadeen weapons during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, who later uses those weapons on you)

Also do you believe that the US doing things that are not United Nations Sanctioned the right thing to do? (Iraq War, although I myself believe that the UN was completely inadequate in dealing with Saddam)

You don't have to answer, but I'd like primary opinion and I'd also respect it whatever it may be.

I can answer, but I'd rather do so via message (:

When i came back from Exodus, i brought Halo: Glasslands back with me to AIT.

My Drill didnt stop calling me The Master Chief until i graduated.

Then he called me a faggot.
User avatar #22 to #16 - fargone (02/06/2013) [-]
Exodus?
#26 to #22 - Rascal (02/06/2013) [-]
It's the winter holiday leave season, usually about two weeks or so with Christmas towards the beginning and New Year's towards the end.
It's called exodus because everybody leaves. Like, literally, there's probably about 20 left from a unit that normally has a couple hundred.

That makes sense. I thought it was some code name for a place.

I finished Glasslands and I'm almost done with the Thursday War. I'm really enjoying them both so far and I think they're one of the better novels to date.

It's good, although not as good as the other ones in my opinion.

They help Halo 4. Halo 4 is so confusing without the new books or the new terminals.
User avatar #59 to #16 - AnonGawd (02/06/2013) [-]
That being said, Master Chief Petty Officer IS a Naval rank..so I'd take it as a compliment.
#85 to #16 - fuelnfire ONLINE (02/06/2013) [-]
Wow. What a coincidence, I brought a copy of Glasslands to San Diego Recruit Training Depot. It was thrown out because it was not of a religious nature... haven't read it to this day. Thanks for reminding me I need to go finish it.

Totally wrong... When I shaved and put on my uniform for the first time I was and was addressed as "private". E-1(PV1) has no rank insignia but you're still a private. Furthermore "cadets" don't go to basic because they the term cadet refers to someone who is going through training to become a commissioned officer and if anything in your comment is even partially right it would be that cadets are still civilians. go to OCS (Officer Candidate School). Calling a private a cadet may get you beat down.

User avatar #206 to #188 - sketchE ONLINE (02/07/2013) [-]
as the two below you have said that is not true. certain requirements can be met to start at pv2. being in jrotc or having a college degree and being an ocs candidate are a few possible ways. also regardless of wearing a chevron you are still a private. the correct term is no insignia private or pv1.
#211 to #206 - yobo (02/14/2013) [-]
Idk about the other ROTC programs, but contracted Army cadets are not allowed to go to Basic
User avatar #212 to #211 - sketchE ONLINE (02/14/2013) [-]
i never mentioned rotc and the keyword their is contracted. i mentioned JROTC which if you have completed three years of you will leave basic as a PFC.

Actually, if you reach the rank of Eagle scout in BoyScouts, you automatically go up a rank in the military if you join.
User avatar #197 to #188 - thatonetyler (02/07/2013) [-]
well that is not 100% true, im a E-3 and i have not gone to basic yet, im a reservist though, and have my uniform and all the only thing i have left to do is go to basic at Fort Jackson.

it was based on it as in the sense of his description and feelings of war and how when the hobbits went back they lived normal lives but were never the same although people saw them in the same way

Read the goddamn foreword by Tolkien himself, he says none of the book is based on the war.
