    Anyhow the answer to your question otherwise; is the majority of Islamic men do not believe that a woman's place should be fighting for them or their country. They also believe that to be killed by a woman, disallows a man from being by Allah's side. This is a punishment they would not even inflict upon their mortal enemies.

The person was in england but that doesnt really mean anything.

  • Should I leave school and join the Australian army or not?

    Best answer: Modern military forces value education very highly. In my 25 years in the Regular Force, I spent about 1/4 of my time in schools, learning things. I would HIGHLY recommend that you stay in school, and join after you graduate.

  • If I was born in Russia can I still join the U.S. military?

    Best answer: None at all, and if you are fairly fluent in that language they might even offer you a couple thousand dollars extra to join as well. Besides the Trump Russia thing is political media hype. The military is smarter than that and so should you be.

    I have a question about leave, so I graduate A school on Friday, and my leave doesn’t start until 1630 on Saturday, however I don’t have duty Saturday and my plane is scheduled to leave at 0500am Saturday morning. My question is if I just go out and say I’m on liberty for the weekend is there any way for them to know I left before my scheduled leave time? Can I call later and sign out over the phone? Will they let me sign out the day before because they can’t force me to come back on base during liberty? Or should I just “forget” to sign out and call later on saying I forgot and didn’t know what I was doing? They haven’t briefed us at all on what to do to sign out, and this is the first time I’m taking leave since bootcamp. Is there any way they’ll know if I actually leave earlier in the day then my leave is scheduled since I’m on liberty all weekend and have no duty or musters? Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!

  • Could it be possible that the army and the navy sometimes dislike each others?

    Best answer: They are like siblings - love each other sometimes and bash down each other the next. Especially when it’s West Point vs Annapolis

    The feelings about the Marines are the same. AF though is the younger step brother who is spoiled.

    Best answer: All your military services offer a transitioning program which I urge you to attend and take advantage of. They are usually a week long and include a number of important things. Among them your VA benefits and how some of that works; current trends in regards to resumes and cover letters along with interviewing in the civilian sector for jobs; your GI Bill education benefits and how that works for you for attending school and really a host of other handy things to know when you get out.

    Along with this don't wait till you get out to start looking at things and surveying the land where you plan on ending up after you get out. Instead start looking at things like the cost of living and renting there and what that is like, availability of jobs and who is hiring and has plans maybe for expanding in the future that might match up with your timeline, and try to make some business and job contacts during late 2019 or early 2020 before you get out. Also consider your finances and try to have everything paid off that you can before separating so that you are not saddled with a lot of debt or as little of that as possible as well as having some savings set aside. You will need money for things like a security deposit and first month's rent for any place you rent and maybe even deposits for utilities. If you have friends or relatives in that area where you are going to end up talk to them about maybe staying with them for the first month till you get the lay of the land and can any of them help you with landing a job? These are all things to consider and do some thinking and investigating about that can help make your transition easier. Along with that make sure you don't fall into the trap of starting to party and drink and go out a lot once you are out. That in itself really side tracks a lot of individuals and then 6-12 months go by and they are barely making it and keeping it together and things just spiral downhill from there. You don't say what your rating or MOS is but consider maybe that in relation to finding work or if not then look at what else is available that will pay you enough to live on.

While im not diagnsoed with asthma i am just going to put no history of inhaler use. Can the military check my records, and would they even if they could if i appeared fine which i am?
