    ... for the respect that it will get you, but you DON'T WANT TO DEPLOY, then please just grab your fucking neck with both hands and squeeze as hard as you can for as long as you can.

    That is all

    Can't wait to deploy, Im volunteering the first chance I get.


    But it won't be the intense boots on the ground Iraq experience. The KC-10 only deploys to Al-Dafra these days.


    Respect to you guys actually getting shot at.

    Actually I'm trying to get a 110' cutter billet in Bahrain next year. That's about the only job for an active duty OS in the USCG over seas.

    I can't fucking BUY a deployment. I am in volunteer status in a "short" designation (66H8A), and STILL have not been deployed.

    I was having the same problem until I happened to meet my Mobility NCO. As soon as I started telling him that I wanted to deploy, he was like "Damn - you should have said something sooner!" :ugh2:

    Apparently trying to go through my chain of command wasn't the best choice. :mad:

    But all is forgiven, now that I'm on the fast track. :wiggle:

    I am almost to the point of contacting downrange MEDCOM commands directly. Fuck this noise. They have nurses with kids on mobilization #3, and i have not even been once. I am not looking to be a hero, but i want to do my part. Fucking pencil pushers need to get their shit in one sock.

    I know alot of people in my unit that feel this way.

    But if you think about it, it makes sense. The military is the only (I think) organization that offers free college pay for joining. Some people join for that, NOT for the respect/to fight a war/anything else.

    Personally, this isn't how I feel, but I do understand why people would feel this way.

    It wasn't directed towards you, it was cliffs for you explaining what Ranger had said, since it was longer than three words, he figured you would need cliffs.

    Cliffs: It wasn't aimed at you, they were cliffs for you.
