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.

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.

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.

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.

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.)

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.

>>>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.

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.
