    I'm 20 in community college only taking 3 classes still living at home while my friends are away at big universities partying and getting laid. I rarely hang with anyone anymore because they are always away. My mom says I'm young and go do this and that but she doesn't understand I'm all alone cause my friends are away and she says once you start working you can't have won't be able to have free time. But I rather work and study than bullshit around during summer getting drunk and laid, I rather make something of myself. Today I got in touch with an Air Force recruiter and he scheduled me for an asvab. I plan on being a cop after I do my 4 years. Do you think it just be best for me to enlist. I feel it'll be a big adventure being in the airforce.

Currently I can't get past 3 pull-ups. Would you recommend for me to train for extended periods of time before shipping out, not shipping out with friends. I am training hard now but I'm not sure if I will be in the best shape in just 15 days.

    A recent article is called "Low Discipline in New Soldiers Prompts Army to Redesign Basic Training" Here is the beginning of the article: Text: The U.S. Army will soon launch a redesign of Basic Combat Training intended to build more discipline after many commanders complained that new soldiers often show up to their first units with a sloppy appearance and undisciplined attitudes. The new program of instruction is the result of surveys taken from thousands of leaders who have observed a trend of new soldiers fresh out of training displaying a lack of obedience and poor work ethic as well as being careless with equipment, uniform and appearance, Maj. Gen. Malcolm Frost, commanding general of the U.S. Army Center of Initial Military Training, told defense reporters on Friday. 'A Sense of Entitlement' "What leaders have observed in general is they believe that there is too much of a sense of entitlement, questioning of lawful orders, not listening to instruction, too much of a buddy mentality with NCOs and officers and a lot of tardiness being late to formation and duties," Frost said. "These are trends that they see as increasing that they think are part of the discipline aspect that is missing and that they would like to see in the trainees that become soldiers that come to them as their first unit of assignment."

  • How long does a medical discharge take at Fort Jackson, SC for basic training?

    Best answer: It varies by individual. The reason he is being discharged is the most important aspect of that.

    Best answer: It varies by individual.

    The reason he is being discharged is the most important aspect of that. Whatever it is, they have evaluated him and determined that he will not be able to serve even if his condition is treated. Otherwise, they would treat his condition and retain him. He may still be undergoing the evaluation process. If it is a mental health diagnosis, they have to determine that he is not a threat to himself or others before sending him home. He can be kept in treatment until that determination is made. If it's a physical problem like a knee, they have to evaluate the degree of injury, likelihood of recovery/surgery, etc. That medical evaluation informs the type of discharge, re-enlistment code, etc.

    There is a joke among training instructors that is very true: The fastest way out of basic training is to graduate. Everything else takes longer.

    It can easily take six weeks or more to process a medical discharge. He was under a legally binding contract with the federal government. Just as he couldn't decide to quit and come home, neither can the military just send him home. That contract has to be dissolved legally. They have obligations to him just as he had legal obligations to them (that includes the military's obligation to pay for his travel home). That means crossing all those "t"s and dotting all those "I"s. Paperwork is paperwork and nobody likes doing it. There is nothing about his discharge that makes anyone want to process it any faster than any other discharge. So it takes as long as it takes. The military moves at its own rate and no faster. Expect several weeks.

    I am a senior In high school and I’ve always considered the military. I want to join the Air Force reserves so i will be able to go to college and be around my family. If i leave for basic training and tech school right after high school i will mosh likely not be back in time to start college in the fall and i don’t really want to start in the spring. I am trying to avoid that so is there any other options ? One of my main reasons for wanting to join the military is because they help pay for my college. A friend of mine is in the army reserves and she was able to go to basic training last summer and this summer go to tech school. I’m not sure if the Air Force is flexible when it comes to that and if there are any other military branches that are flexible. I love what the Air Force is about and I’m hoping someone has more information or advice. Thank you so much.

  • I passed MEPS but lied, I need to tell the truth?

    I went through MEPS and passed but I didn’t disclose a heart surgery I had for a heart murmur when I was a baby. It doesn’t affect me now and it’s not even detectable but Tricare has my medical records and there’s no way they won’t find out about it. Should I tell the truth?
