        Genuinely why would you serve a country that hates you? I wanted to join the military for a while until I realized they couldn't give less of a frick about their soldiers.

        We were in the middle east for 20 years and accomplished nothing. Our country sends fricking billions of dollars to Israel which shouldn't even exist and will probably send you there so you can commit a slow genocide solely to protect the financial interests of billionaire pedophiles. Everyone who came back from from the military recently is super fricked up, they all have PTSD and life long injuries/illnesses with absolutely 0 to show for it.

        Why would you do this when we have so many problems at home in our country. Why not join EMS, Police, Fire, FBI, Border Patrol, etc.? Why not study and become a doctor? Why not pick up a college degree and start a business to employ people?

        There's no virtue in joining the US military at this point in time. If you do see combat it will be complete bullshit and you'll die in a foreign land away from everything that's important to you.

                Idk anon, I couldn't tell you what to expect in that case. One of my buddies from high school is military and two were non-legacy athletes on scholarships to Ivy League schools and they found the experience more than a bit weird. Things have changed.

                Idk if I'd say inbred tier but more so an air of resentment and exclusion on campus due to their values and appearance, many dunning-kruger tales and some weird entrapment stories. They're hated by legacy whites (typically israeli) most of all it seems because back in the day WASPs tried to put a cap on israeli admissions because the two groups kept trying to out nepo each other. So now that WASPs have been vanquished the non-legacy athletes who are typically just harmless polite bougie guys are next on the "frick you" list.

    You'll lose a lot a weight is what I have heard. Go into it actually IST and you'll stand out pretty hard. The food is gonna be slop but your doing enough to not gain weight. I myself may end up following a similar path as you for job training and help pay off college debt. So good luck.

      Not that fricked. You'll probably lose weight despite eating 3k to 5k calories per day. Your gains will be limited but they should be training you to pass the ACFT which is more about full body strength than the old PT test.

      Food isn't slop. It's not some fancy gourmet shit for sure, but the DFAC food is better than public school food by a large margin, and MREs have come a long way.

      Genuinely why would you serve a country that hates you? I wanted to join the military for a while until I realized they couldn't give less of a frick about their soldiers.

      Military has doctors. Also the Gi bill can easily cover medical school after he's out, while also giving him money to live on. While he's in he can take a couple of years of online classes using tuition assistance. Every university offers online courses now. It's easier than ever.

      Not only will the Marines give you far superior endurance in boot camp, you will also gain a level of respect for yourself and others. I'm not going to say you should join the Marines instead of the Army because the job you get is more important, but I will say Marine boot camp is light-years ahead of any other enlisted basic. You will leave in the greatest shape of your life, humbled and with a new found outlook on your newly started career and life in general.

      The Army will leave you to your own accord where you can become a lazy out of shape sack of shit and no one will barely care as long as you do your job.

      Feel free to ask me any questions. Joining the military is a great start to a very successful career or just a way to escape your current situation and better yourself. people will say that you shouldn't join cause of XYZ but you should only care about why you want to join, what you want to get out of it and how you want to be when you are done with it.

      Don't join the marines OP. It's more akin to a cult than Military. We need them for sure, tip of the spear. But marines are for people who want to be marines, not people who want to do their time and get out. They don't care about your advancement, they don't care about you getting your college education, they don't care about your personal development it's just marines all the way. The culture is vastly different as well. The final event of the marines boot camp is called the crucible, army is called victory forge. That alone should tell you what the focus is in each branch. There are also more opportunities and more bonuses in the army as its the largest branch.

      Honestly tho OP if I were to do it again, I would probably join the air force. Much higher quality of life. You won't get to do cool guy shit, and you won't have the leadership training from the army, but everything else is pretty much better in the air force. Cuter girls, smarter average person, better barracks (ahem, "dormitories"), DFACs are nicer, less field training, better funding, no combat, and more. So unless you're trying to set yourself up for leadership positions afterward (MBA and high level management type stuff) air force might suit you better.

    If you're just scrawny, you'll come out with gains. If you go in with gains , you'll lose them during basic, but you can maintain them afterward while in the barracks. My friend said they have pretty nice gyms there, and his scrawny ass came out pretty well built.

    Vetgay here. I joined almost 15 years ago when the world was very different than it is now. I joined for a specific reason and because the specify career opportunity was there at the time. In 2024, I would think very hard about what job you want and why. Do a trade, serve domestically, and get out after.

    In basic training or even the prescreening course, you will be doing a lot of cardio and calisthenics. A good soldier is just the basics done well. Use good form, train ahead of time, *far* exceed the minimum standards. Stay on top of personal admin.
    You'll eat a >3000kcal diet, of not exceptionally nutritious nor tasty food, which you will burn anyway. You will absolutely lose weight. You will likely have access to whey, gatorade and shit (if you bring your own) but this varies. I assume you mean the US Army.

    You're going to lose size but you'll gain a shit ton of endurance. As for food, it isn't as bad as people make it out to be. It's basic mass prepared cafeteria food made by civilians and KP trainees. You can pile onto your plate, but if you don't eat everything you will catch a ton of shit. You will get about 8 minutes to eat each meal.

    They will force you to drink a heaping glass of colored sugar/salt water with every meal and you will be forced to chug a canteen of water every now and then.

    I heard they've radically revamped PT. When I was in it was calisthenics MWF and running TTS. Sunday was free but the Church was 2 clicks from my barrack so we would walk there and back. You also do a shitload of walking and marching. Not just D&C but to all the classes and everything.

    That's the other thing. You spend the majority of your waking hours in a classroom or classroom type setting. Stretch and hydrate because you will cramp the frick up from sitting. BRM is 2 weeks. Various trainings like grenade throwing are usually 1 day or less. There's a multi-day activity at the end. Otherwise you are in a fricking class.

      Chad reminds me of the Men Who Stare At Goats guys. If that movie had been out when I left school, I would’ve gone to a recruiter, shown them that, and asked what I’d have to do to be those guys.

      I mean yeah later down the line the guys who the taught taught the guys to do remote viewing who told Heavens Gare there was a spaceship behind Halle-boop, but Applewhite was completely unconnected to the US.mil and a crazy repressed homosexual so you knew something was gonna break there

    Pretty much no way to not look like a gay unless they ship you to the middle east where you might get a legit gym probably will just become crippled if you actually see combat. You will also probably frick up your joints in basic training and lose a few iq points from sleep deprivation and prison food.
