My CO said the inspiring words, "Don't be a pussy gents." then he got in his hmmwv and drove to the rear. He showed up the next day in brand new cammies and dry boots. I never respected him after and still don't to this day.
I completly agree with the we suffer and you suffer with us idea.....i would never leave my men in the rain and go back in my tent.....thats horrible

One of my good friends is in his final year of Army ROTC, I lived with him during first two years or so.....let me know if you want to know anything


Glad you picked ROTC thats what I did(Air Force though)....I met some west pointers and they were a bunch of ****** ring knockers. I've met some alright WP guys.....but the dooshbag is strong with them. And I can say that before anyone gets on my ass because I'm a pretty chill guy and respect all the branches... but they've blown it

Thumbs up

I was Air Force and retired in 1994. Untill you make 0-3 keep a low profile and learn learn learn because theres nothing worse than a butter bar thinking he or she knows EVERYTHING and can change the world.

Hummm ...

Do this and see what happens ...

Volunteer for EVERYTHING ... and ... ALWAYS ask your DI ... "WHY" ... when you get an order ...

IMO ... USAF has great MOSs & best duty & perks or go USMC and kick azz. ....
