It's a symbiotic relationship.

You do something for the Army, like service, and the Army(or another service) does something for you.

A lot of people came into the Army thinking they were going to have to work for the Army(or other service).

The smart ones, made the Army work for them.

That was really deep and profound, hose. You need work on punctuation, though. You have no idea what the function of a comma is or its placement.

You missed a comma in your comment.

Who is this hose person you are obsessed with?

Here is a news flash: The Vietnam Warrants FLEW HELICOPTERS. None of them went on road marches for training or exited their aircraft to join the Infantry on patrol or spend their day shuffling papers. GET IT??

I knew as a 19 year old spec 4 that if we ever went to war in those we would get our as* shot off.

Well. We got our as* shot off. Just one example of a long list. If you haven't ever bitc*ed about the Army then you have never been in the Army.

Yes I kavetched about the Army, everyone did.

Unarmored humvees? Try convoy patrol standing in the back of a M151A1 with a 60 on a stick!

Oh, and the "vest" weighed a friggin ton and we just used them as seat cushions.

The ARVN's had the M151A2's and the newer M-16's with forward assist. We had shot-out three prongers that were just 5.56 smooth bore shotguns!

"Armor" were the troop carriers, and the armor on them wouldn't resist anything more powerfull than a wrist rocket sling shot!

The point is, the army chases away the best and brightest with constant stream of ditch digging and but kissing.

Something tells me they couldn't run you off though.

In any case, I salute you for your service.

No, they "ran me off" too with their inabiity to control the racial charged conflicts within. After VN the Army went downhill like a runaway train. Curfews at posts because it was unsafe to be outside at night. Towns around bases that discriminated in housing depending on rank. It was a dreary time, and no amount of persuasion coud get me to re-enlist during those times.

While I was there, I played the game by their rules. Butt-kissing and all.
