posted
I am a 21 year old guy, out of work, nothing in store for myself right now, thought about the military in the past and now I want to make the move. A lot of friends have joined various branches, but I think the Army is for me, I am vying for a tech job, but ill take whatever honestly, just need to get my head out there.

I am in good shape, 6'0 - 190lbs. Motivated and determined to go somewhere and better my life.

My questions are; How is life like after signing up, training and all of that?When you actually get stationed and stuff? What do you do on base??? is it a good brotherhood? Please give as many details as possible, i will need them!

If you are looking for adventure, paid education, steady income, free healthcare, and skills you can't acquire anywhere else then this is the best way to achieve your goals.

Question is: are you qualified? Talk to you local Army recruiter!! www.goarmy.com

I think that guy is actually a recruiter. He probably cut and pasted from one of his e-mails.

I am a recruiter, but a 35F by trade. I didn't copy and paste it from anywhere.

And people have passion for protecting their country from outsiders. It is quite a risky job!

This guy is a disillusioned ex-army guy trying to make money off his book. Not much better than the SPAMMERS below him.


Be Proud of what you do- and do it Well! ~me

Hey there Oleary,

Check these websites out below to get an idea as to what you want to do. Then began looking on networking sites such as this one to see what the actual people that work in a particular MOS (job) have to say. There are a lot of creditable resources online and at your local library that you can read up on for FREE. Only you know what your interests are. Each MOS attends a different school(AIT). This contract is very serious for it is your life your making a commitment with. So do your homework your worth it. And the Army def has it's up and downs, but the benefits are great. Basic training for myself at an "older" age in 08' was more of a physical challenge, but your young and in shape it sounds, so no problem there. Now for Intel your score and your background (for security clearances) need to be up to par. Your recruiter may be able to give you a test to see where your strengths/weakness are(ASVAB) conduct a background check (which is not extensive) to get an idea where you stand. And where you can end up stationed at is really vague. At one point I was given the option of listing 5 or so (don't really remember how many plus things change) different bases as a wish list. I ended up with my 3rd choice. Check out the websites for different bases and see if they have open forums for you to chat with soldiers stationed there for a better idea about the base. Good luck.

Autobahn,

I seen that and I felt I should actually give the young man somewhere to start, I have 2(twins) 22 yr old young men...and I wouldn't want someone giving them some BS.

I agree. To join army, you need to be well organized and disciplined. But the foremost requirement is the qualification.
