    Hey guys,
    so i'm 23 and i really don't enjoy my life right now. my job is not fulfilling and i want to go do something exciting. i've seen all these army commercials and it looks like their doing some cool shit.

    so last night, when i shooting the shit on xbox live playing some cod i decided i want to join the military because let's be honest, who doesn't wanna run around with a saw. i've got nothing gonig for me right and and i feel that it'd make me a new man. besides i heard guys in uniforms get all the chicks.

    my physical fitness ain't good right now, but i think i'll be able to pass the min standards.

    i want to go infantry what are ya'll's thoughts?

    Passing the minimum standards in PT won't do any good. Are you trying to troll?

    Where the hell did you get those mins from??

    40 PU = 60 pts
    50 SU = 60 pts
    16:36 = 60 pts

    That is the bare minimum to pass the APFT.

    not only will you rarely run around with a saw but that shit is heavy, infantry guys are seen as more "bad ass" by some, but there are some other jobs that are pretty cool too. in infantry basic if you get in good enough shape theyll ask you if you want to go airborne school and rip, or an 18x which you would def want to jump at

    talk to EYOB and ask him how often he runs around with a SAW
    if you want to do the stupid shit (cool stuff) join the ranger regiment under the 11X contract (if they still have it)

    11x national guard is the way to go, If i could do it all over again thats the route I'd go... It nearly impossible for them to be removed from the course (excluding DUI, quitting etc) and you will be a green beret... Dont join the Army unless your gonna like what you do cause it can make anything suck. Also military towns are full of Ugly STD filled sluts that you will lower your standard to getting with, PT is free so hit it hard and it will make a good 1st impression and good luck! Its not glorious as the games when your actually out in the rain, sleet and snow with the people the games are made about! But it can be much more fulfilling!

    The newer 249's are a bit lighter. Still more than an M4 but lighter none the less. We just got them in and I havent had a chance to play around with them much let alone shoot one.

    I carried a saw when we first deployed. Shit sucked. Esp with those black plastic round carriers. I would preferred to just carry extra nutsacks but that was a no go I was told. I gave it up for the M14 which was a bigger pain in the ass due to how long it is and how much all that 7.62 weighs on the front of you.

    I'm a 19D. We're kinda like the infantry but our platoons only ever have 20 guys tops. Its always funny when they expect us to do the same thing as an infantry company but with half the guys and then wonder why we bitched so much and were always tired

    Being stationed somewhere, and deploying somewhere are different.
