There's a soldier by the username of theclefe currently stationed in Iraq. I have a friend in the Army who just got back. Nothing but positive comments.

I have friends who are both currently in or recently out of both the Army and Marines, the guys who are Marines are proud of it but more then one has said how they get crappy equipment and since they are a smaller force don't have the political pull of their larger counterparts.

Also if/when you sign up for whatever branch of service it is you go into make sure to get everything you want in your contract, because if it isn't in there you are out of luck and there are some less scrupulous recruiters who will do anything to get you in and fill their quota.

I'm former military. I'll be happy to answer any questions I can for you. I feel fairly objective about the subject. It was a good experience for me, but nothing I would've done for 20 years....Feel free to pm me.

It could have been a trick to lure us in so he could email me a pamphlet on Global Warming or something. :-°
