    He's been my best friend since we were like 3 years old, he's in medical school now and was commissioned as a 2ndLT and will have to be an army doctor for 6 years once he graduates from med school, so anyones he just IM's me this......

    removed: can you believe i have to pay $600 for my uniforms
    Accord C11: i thought they issued it
    removed: i get my ta-50 issued
    removed: but not uniforms and accessories
    Accord C11: im surprised they dont issue all of it
    removed: i know
    removed: i am a goddamned officer
    removed: and some piece of shit grunt private gets everything for free
    Accord C11: umm ok... but anyways youll be making like 5 times as much money
    removed: so what?
    Accord C11: ?
    removed: celebrities make ton of money and people give them free shit all the time
    removed: its not my fault im smart and can get a good job
    Accord C11: um
    removed: you know what im saying

    He's only been a 2ndLT for like 3 months, never served a day on active duty, never even been to OCS or anything, and gets paid an E-5 salary just for going to school everyday, but he's already got this holier than thou attitude toward enlisted... all I got to say is thank god he'll be a medical officer and will never actually be leading anyone into combat or anything. I'm not gonna bitch at him for the stupid things he said since I haven't actually shipped out yet and i'm not really in any position to do so, but I think once he is in the real army some SNCO will set him straight I would hope.

    1. He's a Doctor and they are all elitist.
    2. He"s a college student and they are all elitist.
    3. He's a officer and they are all elitist.


    Who gives a fuck what he thinks as a Med Officer. Luckily he will never been in a situation where his attitude would compromise the mission or the unit. Being a Med Officer will keep him locked away in the TMC doing sickcall.

    Do you think I should say something to him about his attitude and whatnot the next time he says something along the lines of what is in the first post, or should I just keep quiet since he's my best friend and i'm still only in DEP?

    It doesn't take a military man to realize he is being a complete prick. Beware what you say once you are in the military because he sounds like the kind of guy that would hammer you.

    Tell him everyone will be mocking him behind his back and even things that enlisted guys in his unit say to his face will be doublespeak for private jokes that everyone says about him.

    Really want to rile him up? Ask him why he doesn't get full BAS compared to Enlisted Soldiers. When he looks it up and realizes that he gets like 75% or some shit of BAS tell him to go read his Officer's Guide where it is explained.

    It isn't explained in my officer's guide. But since I get better BAH I don't really care. What's the reasoning? Only thing I can think of is something along the same lines as we always let the enlisted eat before we do. Take care of them before you take care of yourself.

    How do you know when someone is an officer?

    They'll be sure to tell you!

    Can you guys read this convo and tell me if my friend is bullshitting me? He was telling me how he bought all this sweet tactical gear, and I asked why does he need it if he's gonna be in a hospital all the time and he said he's going to be on a "forward surrgical team" and see combat :ugh:.

    removed: i got some badass stuff
    removed: i bought some extra field gear
    Accord C11: like what
    removed: a tactical helmet light
    removed: tactical gloves
    removed: a sweet tactical camelbak
    removed: stuff like that
    Accord C11: why do you need all that if you're going to be in a hospital all the time?
    removed: well
    removed: when i am a surgeon and i get deployed i will be on a forward surgical team (fst)
    removed: which gets attached to an advancing unit
    removed: so i will be advancing to the front lines with that unit
    removed: and then treating casulties
    removed: but will likely see some combat as well
    Accord C11: i thought they sent medics to do that and then broughjt casualties to a field hospital or something
    removed: not with fst's
    removed: and thats what i want to do
    removed: so i will need that stuff at some point
    removed: and i will use it for ftx at obc
    Accord C11: oh
    removed: this is from an article on fst's
    removed: An operating surgeon, on the other hand, is capable of everything the EMD does, however; he has spent an additional four to five years of intense, on-the-job training in a hospital, to learn the techniques and skills necessary to open an MBC in order to save a life. This training is called Surgical Residency training and correlates to Ranger School training extended over five years.
    removed: thats what i am going to do
    Accord C11: why do they have medics then if FST's are always there?
    removed: not every unit has an fst
    removed: only the badass ones
    removed: like 101st, 82nd, 1st id, 10th mountain
    Accord C11: if fst's are so sweet then wouldn't every other army doctor be competing to get one of those slots?
    removed: nah
    removed: most of the people who join the army as doctors dont want to be in harms way
    removed: here is another quote\
    removed: The FST is a surgical team, not a hospital, and is intended for offensive, not stability or peacekeeping operations
    removed: pretty sweet huh?
    Accord C11: i guess, but how do you know youll get to be on one?
    removed: i dont
    removed: but i want to
    Accord C11: but if you have a sweet pft score then i bet you have a good chance
    removed: maybe
    removed: i dont know if that has anything to do with it though
    Accord C11: i bet it does
    removed: i actually doubt it
    removed: i think it depends on how good of a surgeon you are
    Accord C11: i bet it does because if youre attached to some high speed unit they want to make sure you can keep up with all the guys who go on 25 mile humps and shit
    removed: they dont hump or march
    removed: they ride is humvees and transporters
    Accord C11: since when does the 82nd airborne not go on humps? jesus christ
    removed: the army is very high speed now

    It's obvious he's just trying to impress me, is this bullshit? Is there even such a thing as a forward surgical team where he'll be in combat? I can deal with hearing all his other crap, but now he's talking about seeing combat on a FST when he hasn't even finished 1 year of medical school... Is this BS or what?
