    I went to the army website and took their job matching thing and it recommends me for psyops 37F I think it was, and a bunch of other shit I cant do because I am to old. Mostly special forces stuff and ill be honest no way I could pass their physical standards.

    So, is this psyops a pretty sweet gig in the army or should I look at something else? It basicly struck me as a marketing job.

    I am not asking for your opinion on the military or if i should or should not join it. I am asking about a Military job, please keep your responces inside that box. I don't need anyone to help me decide if the Military is right for me.

    :rofl:

    No really, the military isn't some job you apply for. There is no guarentee that you will end up with the job you want.

    The military is a whole lifestyle in itself, the field you are assigned to comes after that. If you are worried about "physical stuff" you should probably apply else where.

    Not having a clue about the military and then telling a bunch of people in the military that you don't need help deciding if it's for you or not is about the worst way you could approach this.

    And :rofl: at the special forces comment.

    Don't listen to all the faggot chair force and navy fucks here. Mind you their job is to mod and talk shit on this forum.

    The Marine Corps is the best and only branch you should join

    I'm not worried about physical stuff you twat. I know that special forces requires a different breed of physical fitness and I am not willing to subjicate myself to that lifestyle.

    Anyways so about psyops good or bad?

    MF:werd: I went from Marine Corps, to Chairforce, back to Marine Corps. I was Aircrew in the Chairforce, and tried to do the same thing now that I'm back in the Corps. All I had to do, was go through Naval Aircrew School, and I would go straight to the fleet, since I'm already qual'd in the MOS. Unfortunately, Aircrew School kicked my ass. I swim like a rock. I am CWS2, but that's because I did all the events swimming on my back, which I have no problem doing, but every other stroke, can't do it.

    So now I'm doing ANOTHER lateral move into a different field. I've been wanting to get into photography/video editing as a hobby, so I figured I'm gonna try out something in the Combat Camera field or maybe be a tank crewman on M1A1 Abrams. :noes:

    Try to keep an open mind, because unless you are highly skilled in a certain field, you are not guaranteed a job. You'll get a guarantee a shot at a job, at the most. Even if you have the experience/qualifications/etc, you might not meet all the requirements, like in my case. I was slated to be a Crew Chief on Ospreys, only to find out I'm disqualified medically to fly in Helo's due to my eyesight, but I could still fly fixed wing. So they made a change for me to go C-130's, which is the platform I was already flying in, but like I said, I can't swim for shit. I can swim/float/tread water to save my life, but NATOPS says I have to complete Aircrew training according to the syllabus, which I can't do. Oh well, time to move on.

    This guy. :ugh:

    The physical stuff applies to every single job. The fact that you are focused on this one particular job is what is throwing up flags to everyone here that you need some prior education on this subject and we are trying to help you out.

    Answer this first, if you don't end up with psyops and end up as say a truck driver, or a generator mechanic, or a refueler instead would that be alright with you?

    initially joining the army you will not be eligible to join PSYOP (no "s") unless you have a degree.... unless you join the reserves, then you dont need one. (but keep in mind reserve psyoppers do not get language /airborne but for a select few on an order of merit list)

    but id say its a pretty slick job. :coold:
    its small army... decentralized, laid back, not all uptight like the 82nd. :o
    its true that that the skills transfer over to the civilian world mainly as marketing, but to say thats it would be a terrible injustice! you get a lot of good skills in simple psychology, computer stuffs (like photoshop), and oppurtunities to do things others in the military just dont get to do.

    deployments are to "cooler" places than the sandbox. (all over africa, bosnia, thailand, etc) standard of living while deployed is a bit better than most as well. and one last point, one that i like alot, is that you get to see the results of your work. be those results success or failure. and also get a bit more of the larger picture which is always nice.

    if youe really interested in joining psyop, pm me and ill get you some info on who to contact for more info.

    So, you are a Marine by proxy? Fuck, Accord was never this gay. At least Accord could regurgitate a billion useless facts about his beloved Corps. You're not even worthy of being in Accord's DEP program.

    Your idiocy is staggering. I honestly think you make Accord look like a fucking medal of honor recipient. I hope you take your attitude to basic with you, so your DIs can beat it out of you.

    In other words..you're a punk ass kid that don't know shit about shit, and if you ran your mouth to me in real life like you do to everyone else on this board, you would find your ass planted by this "chair force" TSgt.

    And that's the bottom line, because I said so, and you are a fucking moron.
