    whats up guys..i asked a question earlier on "Mr Literal" earlier and got some good feedback(much appreciated) so i figure ill really go for the gold now because i am hearing such unbelievably mixed reviews on the NAVY throughout the net.. Basically i really want to join but am very scared of the commitment and whether or not all the crazed navy HATERS (and i mean HATE) are insane or have the right idea...this is my basic situation..

    I will have my degree (journalism)b4 i join if i do join..i scored a little above 70 on a practice test...(a 50 or up is needed for officer consideration)

    My Pros

    -absolutely no prob with hard work (as long as its not COMPLETE horse-shit)
    -no prob with authority (again within reason..give me benefit of doubt that im reasonable)
    -No family/dependents
    -Not in desperate financial situation
    -like travel
    -want to do intelligence specialist...good with languages ..already fluent spanish and a lil Arabic..
    -really want to do it..scared ill regret it if i dont

    Cons
    -am very freaked out about the lack of women (no other branch is an option so dont suggest airforce please) and the fact that i most probably will be out of a potential wife meeting situations in my prime (ill be 23 and obviously older when im out)
    -very very very wary and scared of the 8 year commitment deal, especially hearing that so many reserves are being called in nowadays..if im gonna be done i want to basically be done
    -scared by all the people who say they completely own u and treat u like dogshit and that i am signing away my rights of freedom (as civilians know it)
    -scared i wont be able to start as officer ..i am convinced that enlisted guys are treated like shit by these bastard bloggers and their repetition
    -scared of no job when i get out
    -again...8 year contract..wow

    i know thats a lot but hopefully u guys are cool to help...i want to hear anything and everything any of u who have been in the navy have to say/experiences/opinions ..whatever

    appreciate it

    Everything in life involves horse shit in one form or another, get used to it


    Above shows otherwise

    good


    good



    Sounds familiar







    Cons
    :ugh:



    Comes with the services

    And employers don't treat thier employees like shit in the civilian world?



    No one justs signs up and comes out an officer on day one


    And if your current job falls through, why aren't you scared about that?
    :ugh:

    :hsugh:

    and y would that be swet daddy? because i am wary of signing an 8 year contract that i cant get out of, that pays shit and that almost everyone everywhere recommends against? Peoples reaction on these forums to someone who actually THINKS b4 they do something is baffling me

    Get used to it, being in the military means that you have follow orders, no matter how redudant or how retarded you think your superiors are

    because you aren't the first one to pull this shit. Every so often we get wannabe SEALS, Recon, SF you name it who want to be the hardest motherfucker on gods green earth but aren't willing to put 100% into it and make the sacrifices. If you know what you want and you want it bad enough then you will have to be willing to swab toilets for two years. because of you don't they another guy who is alot more dedicated than you will take your prize. This doesn't just apply to the military, even in the civilian world you have to work hard, do stupid shit and suck up to alot of people to get ahead. Welcome to life, I hope you enjoy the ride

    You break a contract in the civilian world can you get taken to court

    Posted in the duplicate in the main forum, but I'll respond to it here




    Everyone rips on everyone. Happens no matter where you go


    You are right about being cautious, but you are worrying about things that should not even be in the equation or that you already know is inevitable. For fucks sake man you are looking to be an officer, grow a fucking pair will ya?



    You're right, but I rather be stuck in that gung ho person in a tight spot than someone who doesn't know if they want to be there or not. I know we give Accord alot of shit but at least he did that he did because he knew that he wanted and that took alot of balls for him to do that. I would not mind being stuck with him when the shit hits the fan


    Even the very fact that this is even a fucking issue that you are concerned about shows me that you just don't have what it takes to be succesful. Seriously enjoy your life as you know it, have fun, fuck all the hot bitches in your local area. But in the end you will end up like all the good for nothings who spent thier partying and getting laid who realize that they are in thier 30's, everyone in thier favorite club thinks that they are a fucking joke and that they acomplished absolutely nothing while they had the chance too because they were afraid to make that important commitment that would have changed thier life forever

    durkastan, u r the macho to end all machos. Unfortunately ur machismo limits ur capabilities to think straight. U may be right about the washed up 30 year olds but the fact that u think someone who is smart enough to want to make an educated decision is unqualified and wont be succesful is fucking retarted.. Anyone stupid enough to join something, especially something with as HORRIBlE a reputation as the U.S NAVY, widely renowned for treating their own like absolute dog shit, is an idiot and wouldnt be fit to be an officer in charge of anyone. Im sure ull just call them all pussies, but please, just for the sake of educating yourself, do a little basic search around the net for peoples stories about the navy and how it took care of them. Forum after forum tear it apart, some with thousands of posts, website after website dedicated to stopping others from joining..almost NOTHING and noone with anything that is anything except for horrible to say..now i gues they are all just pussies, but when something is THAT overwhelming , only a sucker doesnt atleast take it into account..to be honest u sound like the kind of superior that all these miserable and regretful fucks are endlessly complaining about..really look it up

    I am not going to even bother to give this a dignified response when the author substitutes "Your" you're" and "You" with "Ur" and "U". Not to mention the run on sentences and fragments. I would have thought that someone with a degree in journalism would be able to form together a somewhat coherant sentence but I guess not.

    making statements like "i'll do anything they want.....within reason" tell me you're not ready for military life.

    they'll ask you to do whatever the hell they want, and you will do it, because you are legally obligated to do it. yes, they might tell you to clean a toilet with a toothbrush, and yes, you will have to do it, regardless of how "retarded" it sounds. the reasoning here is that if you won't obey an order that simple, how can they trust you to follow an order that might put your life or the lives of others in danger to accomplish the mission.

    you seem to want the benefits of military life without any of the sacrifices - you repeat how great of an asset you would be to the military, but you're constantly seeking some kind of confirmation and reassurance that you'll never actually be put in an uncomfortable, or downright miserable situation.

    it reminds me of the posts we get once in a while from people who "want to serve", but don't want to get deployed/killed/have to do the real work involved.

    there is a reason it's called "service" - i would suggest you learn that definition and make sure you're okay with it before you pursue a stint in the military.

    isn't it obvious by now? he's too smart for the military to do bitch work. where's his cadre of hot bitches to jerk him off every morning before heading topside to issue commands to pollywogs?

    lol

    i hope he does go in as an officer with that attitude, especially in the navy

    i saw plenty of ensigns shining brass, flipping burgers, moving office furniture, cleaning floors/bathrooms, etc (and did plenty of it myself) when i was at Pensacola.

    i really hope he complains about how "retarded" the work is, too. or better yet, refuse to do it outright.

    bitchwork is part of life, and an even bigger part of the military. i do it every day as an O-3 - it doesn't get any better, you just end up getting in trouble more for screwing it up as you move up.

    1. if you don't meet girls in the military then tough shit. it's an unselfish service to your country, it requires sacrifice. others before you have given their lives for this country, put that into perspective of your whiny little bitch ass.

    2. if you're not ready for it now then it's going to be exponentially harder as the years get by. it's 8 years split up however your contract is split up. deal with it; we all did.

    3. they only treat you like dogshit if you are dogshit and piss off every body. go in with a good can-do attitude, keep your head down in the beginning and ears open to learn everything you can and you will quickly earn respect. by the end of your contract you'll be out as a O3 or maybe even O4 with the ability to lead men.

    4. that's not how the military works.

    5. not being able to find a job isn't really the navy's problem. maybe you shouldn't have gone to school for a journalism major and come out with the writing skills of paris hilton.

    6. 8 years. wow. fuck you.

    haha and another criticizing my online grammar..u guys are such fucking jokes sitting all high and mighty and jerking off to yourselves and how little I know about the military..everyone is so offended by the fact that I mentioned lack of women as a negative..what the hell kind of fags are u?

    as for the guy who wasted my brain space with his laughable ron paul icon, (omg is ron paul supposed to be capitalized!!!) i dont "know if im ready for it," thats y i asked u unbelievably nice fellows for some advice..as for ur response to being treated like dog shit.. i hope ur right, but the vast majority (as in almost everyone without exception) tells me that people like you abuse ur power and that u probably got to where u are right now by politics anyway.. i guess EVERYONE is a liar and EVERYONE is "dogshit." As for your response to my reaction to 8 years, those of us who have something to live for here in the regular old real world actually think 8 years away is a lot.. without that commitment there would be thousands and thousands of very qualified and dependable people joining all the time.. just because people dont want to dedicate an entire decade to something doesnt mean they are any less dependable or patriotic or whatever the hell u people are looking crying about...

    now please copy-edit my response before responding so you can all feel like you have been to real college too. I left this one extra messy on purpose so u guys can feel smart again.

    don't join, you're just too whiny and unfit to even consider being an office of the navy. what you're expecting out of the navy won't ever fit in with how awesome you are. go work for a newspaper and leave your blue collar fantasies at the door.

    Why is the Navy the only service you are willing to consider?
