    serving your country is the main reason why some people join.. it falls second sometimes.

    "raising the top age from 35 to 42"

    Thats just desperate and kind of sad now.

    I posted this article on another forum that has a ton of liberal shitbags, and they're all like "Yeah, i'll take my life over $40k thank you"

    Fucking idiots I wish I could e-slap them.

    accord i ever tell you that your an idiot, you are a servent of the people of your country you have no opinion, no voice, you do what you are told and obey orders, wither they are left wing tree huggin hippie or a church huging conservative you do what is demanded by the people.

    and sometimes its better to let them talk, because the wisest man in the room says nothing and when he speaks everyone listens.


    cliffs: STFU AND SHIP OUT MAGGOT!

    oh and the army riseing the recuiting age and such doesnt surprise me becaue a lot of kids want to go into the military but dont want to worrry about getting shipped over to iraq or afghanistan so they join the navy or airforce or CG.

    Shut the fuck up.

    :ugh2:

    Who the fuck are you?




    Edit: Nevermind... http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=2080080&page=4 You're the douchebag who went around calling yourself a PFC when you didn't even ship out yet. If TRN or another Marine or member of the military on here wants to call me out and bitch at me for whatever reason, that's fine... but you? :rofl:

    I doubt they would come in as an E-1, by the age of 42 chances are they have some form of education and/or job experience to offer.

    I don't see why risking your ass shouldn't come with a nice paycheck.
