• Can you join the Marines with a history of being in a psychiatric facility but never being diagnosed?

    Best answer: If a court ordered you to go into the hospital then it was an involuntary commitment. That is a disqualification from gun ownership for five years and you can not carry a gun so no Marines. If your parents stuck you in there then you need to mention it but be sure to say it was not court ordered. If it was a... show more

If your parents stuck you in there then you need to mention it but be sure to say it was not court ordered. If it was a Baker hold and they did not keep you beyond three days then it did not count as a commitment. You so not need to mention a baker hold.

  • Other than using Nuclear Weapons, does the United States have any good military options in dealing with North Korea?

    Best answer: No, the US has no options whatsoever because Americans are too damn stupid to learn their own goddamn history.
    If only they would, they'd know about the two Guinness World Records that the Korean War holds.

    One is for the UN Ceasefire Agreement that halted the fighting in that war which holds the full force of international law.
    It hold a Guinness Record for longest ceasefire in Human history.
    Which North Korea has never violated because it knows whatever country is stupid enough to do that is who the UN will go after and punish for breaking international law..
    That's why North Korea spends so much time trying to dupe, bait and sucker dumb@ss Americans into shooting first.

    The second Guinness Record is for the most allies to come to the aid of another in time of war.
    Back in the 50s, the US thought it could handle North Korea by itself and instead the US got its @ss whupped so hard that it ran screaming to the United Nations for help.
    Because what the idiot US thought it could do alone actually required a total of 67 countries to achieve.

    That's why the World thinks the US is a drooling moron nation for even thinking North Korea's a threat or that the US has any legal right under international law to go around violating decades-old, record-holding ceasefires like a pack of dummies.

    Like the old saying goes: Ignorance of the law is no excuse under the law.
    Americans need to hit the books and study up to smarten up before it ends up nuked by everyone, not just North Korea, if the US stupidly lets Trump restart the Korean War.

  • My dad wants me to join the marines, but I want to pick any other branch. Opinions?

    Best answer: You sound more like the intellectual type (because you are using numerical facts to support your argument). For this reason I'd recommend the Air Force and NOT the Marines.

    It's your decision, not your father's.

  • Can US military enlistments be involuntarily extended (see details), and if so, for how long?

    Best answer: Your hypothetical case would never happen. A misfit that was still an E1 would have been ushered off the base long before their ETS. and while part of the pay can be withheld, fines are not assessed.

  • If I join the military as a woman, should I just say goodbye to ever getting married?

    I'm a 25 yr old woman thinking about joining the air force. Not sure for how long. I'm concerned that if I do, I wont get married...because its different for women.

    I'm a 25 yr old woman thinking about joining the air force. Not sure for how long. I'm concerned that if I do, I wont get married...because its different for women. If a man is in the military he can just tote his wife around with him if shes a stay at home wife, part time worker, etc. But men aren't going to follow me around, they're typically more serious about their long term jobs. Also, if I marry someone in the military, we might be separated to different stations. I also don't want to be the sole breadwinner if I do get married...so my options kind of suck. Should I just resign myself to never getting married if I join & stay in the air force?

My credit check came back and there were a few things in collections (which do not exceed $2000), My recruiter has only responded to my messages with a photo of the credit check which showed it was reviewed by the squadron OPS who replied "FED Required."

I really want to leave for BMT and get my life started... I am super afraid of losing my chance... What does that mean?

  • So I m looking for good logical advice.?

    Best answer: join spouse is not 100% you have to choose your AFSC wisely, to make sure both spouses AFSC can even be assigned to the same base IE: you wouldn't want one doing bomber maintenance and the other doing fighter maintenance-- since the chances of them both being on the same base are next to zero so one spouse... show more
    Best answer: join spouse is not 100%

    you have to choose your AFSC wisely, to make sure both spouses AFSC can even be assigned to the same base

    IE: you wouldn't want one doing bomber maintenance and the other doing fighter maintenance-- since the chances of them both being on the same base are next to zero

    so one spouse needs a AFSC that can basically go anywhere, like a admin clerk or security forces-- even if it means doing a job that they might not want to do.

    join spouse works great for lower enlisted, but gets harder as your gain rank-- since there are fewer slots for you to move into at a higher rank

    so during the 1st enlistment, not really an issue, but if you stay in the service, its starts becoming an issue after you reenlist and get promoted to ssgt, tsgt or msgt

    My girlfriend from Thailand cheated on me and left me for an E3, (or E2 I dont remember exactly) in the Navy. She said she didn't see a future in me as I'm still in OT school and will have 30k in debt when I graduate. She said she wanted a partner who could offer her and her future family more. She also felt that by being with a military man, her citizenship process could be expedited. As she left me, she said she still wanted to be friends but I'm not falling for that. I'm really distraught. Are there really that many benefits to being in the military?

  • What motivates people to join the army or the marines?

    Best answer: A chance to serve the country, a sense of adventure, a desire to belong, a desire to get away from your circumstances. A desire so test ones self to see what they are made of.
    And in my day, occasionally a local judge encouraged a young man to join as an alternative to prison for petty crimes.
