    in my time in the military is how to stand in the rain and act like I don't fucking care. Civilians run like they have a serial killer chasing after them if it is misting, but not us military people. We proudly walk leisurely to our destination regardless of the amount of water falling from the heavens. Noah could float by and we would still act as if we don't notice the rain falling upon our beret. Do we cancel PT because the ground has turned into a swamp? The answer is no. We seem to become even more motivated if our PT clothes are the same color as the fingerpaint material used in insane asylums. We, the few, the proud, the soaking fucking wet refuse to run like little bitches. Running is to admit that you are uncomfortable and not able to deal with the situation. Instead we suffer like some retarded drowned rats all because we are afraid to be called a pussy. I leave you with a completely worthless and idiotic movie quote that my beloved Army has adopted. "IF IT AIN"T RAINING WE AIN"T TRAINING".

    The number one thing I learned was how insignificant I was in the larger scheme of things. Without the men of my unit (back in my day there were far too few women in military lives), what a pitiful thing I was. My value was in that tiny bit that I contributed to the goals we were set to achieve. We didn't think about Duty, Honor, and Country, that was for those far above our pay grade. Our thoughts were more on the order of not "letting the side down", and getting a long shore leave where the booze was cheap and the women plentiful.

    There are many benefits to having an all-volunteer force, but we lose the opportunity to teach the lessons of military life to more of our clueless youth... many of whom will grow into clueless adults in love with leftist idealism.

    I learned to drop a few plates. No matter how hard you work one day to get some mission accomplished, you'll have the same bullshit to do the next day and the next and the next. Working late hours or going above the call of duty gets you a fucking slap on the back and maybe an "oorah devil" from some old crusty rocker wearing fat guy.

    I'm leaving with a bitter taste but I had a good time while I was in and now I can go to school full time and not worry about monies. Mission accomplished.

    Or until they come back to the Marine Corps. :rofl:
    Im reenlisting in the Corps , leaving the chair force, but I never wanted to leave the Corps. I just realized that too late in my first Enlistment, and left because I couldn't keep my job, or get what I wanted.

    That is pathetic if that is your best attempt at cutting me down. I left the Army for a job as a Network Engineer with the second largest telecomm company in the world. I rejoined the military because I enjoy being in the military. Throw in the fact that I am now a pilot in the Army, and I am not really seeing the point you were trying to make.

    So, what is it you do?
