    I want to be a cop. I'm only in my first year of community college. I hate school. having community college isn't enough to be qualified at most departments for them to hire you. I'm thinking about enlisting into the army to get hands on experience and become better qualified. Should I enlist since community college is not enough qualifications. It's going to take forever to get 60 credits so I feel like I might as well enslit.

  • What do you do when your parents don't want you joining the military?

    I am a 21 year old woman looking at enlisting in the Navy. I've gotten some college under my belt, but it's been a bumpy ride of failing some semesters/classes. Long story short, I want to feel that sense of pride and become part of something bigger than myself. I shared the idea with my dad, and although... show more
    I am a 21 year old woman looking at enlisting in the Navy. I've gotten some college under my belt, but it's been a bumpy ride of failing some semesters/classes. Long story short, I want to feel that sense of pride and become part of something bigger than myself. I shared the idea with my dad, and although he wasn't upset, he was adamant that getting my four-year degree will instill more discipline in me than going into the military. He also believes that this will only provide a temporary solution and that when I come back into the civilian life, I will be royally screwed (financially and emotionally). I understand that I'm 21 and can make my own decisions... But it would be nice to at least put my dad at ease that this isn't the worst decision in the world.

If every soldier that went through MEPS told the truth, we wouldn't have an armed forces. Their job at MEPS is to disqualify you. They will disqualify you based on your word. If it's not physically visible or something that they can find out through blood draw or anything like that, don't bring it up. I didn't tell them about my ADHD, I wouldn't have been able to join at the time. Just be consistent with what you say. They will ask you the same question three different ways three different times. Be the perfect little future American soldier because that's what they want to hear. Civilians won't understand that you're not going to get into trouble. They had posters on the wall, had a Captain come in and tell us if we lie we're done, and we were even brought one by one into an office and questioned. You will be fine. If it's not obvious, don't mention it

  • What are some good reasons NOT to join the United States Military?

    Best answer: Israel controls American foreign policy, so odds are you will get involved in some pointless war in a godforsaken towelhead country to benefit greedy, landgrabbing jews while at the same time inviting terror onto American shores. That's the BEST reason not to join. Other reasons could include things like... show more

Even though their hands were up. Would he be executed for a war crime in WW2 ? Or did this happen a thousand times on both sides and in both wars (ww1 +2)

  • Is being in the military easier or harder than you expected?

    From what I've heard people say, they make it sound terrible. They make it sound insanely stressful. Really, how bad is it? Can someone give me a less-than-exaggerated opinion from your own personal experience of being in the military? What was the hardest part for you? Was it boot camp, was it your daily job,... show more
    From what I've heard people say, they make it sound terrible. They make it sound insanely stressful. Really, how bad is it? Can someone give me a less-than-exaggerated opinion from your own personal experience of being in the military? What was the hardest part for you? Was it boot camp, was it your daily job, was it having to memorize things, was it the pressure, was it the deployments? I'm asking because I'm considering joining and want to know realistically what I'm getting myself into.

  • Why is the most powerful military on earth still fighting ground wars?

    If the idea is to hunt down and kill the enemy before they kill us, is it really necessary to provide the enemy with easier targets?

  • My son is at fort Jackson and we haven't received a call yet?

    He started basic 15 days ago. I got a little piece of paper with his address about 5 days ago. I was just wondering how long it took before people got their first call home? Did they get to talk a decent amount of time or was it just a quick call?

  • Which Bachelor's degree would be better if I want to work in Intelligence: Political Science or Criminal Justice?

    Best answer: Neither one. For all practical purposes those are garbage. Having a degree is simply one part of qualifying for a commission. That is merely one minimum requirement.

    Best answer: Neither one. For all practical purposes those are garbage.

    Having a degree is simply one part of qualifying for a commission. That is merely one minimum requirement. Among other things, you have to out-compete your peers for a slot. Both of those degrees are a dime a dozen and have a reputation for being anything BUT academically challenging. Intel is a coveted position. Those degrees don't make you competitive for anything, much less coveted positions. They meet the minimum requirement but that's it. Meeting the minimum doesn't get you anywhere for anything. You need to well exceed the minimum standard to compete against others.

    Degrees in the humanities are what the intel community is typically looking for. History, geography, international law, and international studies are much more competitive. An education in foreign languages, like Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Korean, or Russian will also help.
