I almost replaced those guys. Our other BN did instead and we went south.

So the Army recruiter called me the other day, said that I would have take a rank reduction if I wanted to cross deck into the Army and that there were no other jobs besides the infantry I could get into.

I told him, "nothing to him, but its the ****ing Army, you guys take 40 year olds from Mcdonalds and make them UAV mechs, how and the **** are you going to tell me that a guy in my postion the best you can do is a rank reduction, and infantry?!" Seriously go **** yourself.

That is just how they've been doing things forever, don't take it personally. They have this concept that they will not move someone out of a CMF they are currently trying to fill even if that means losing out on somebody. I wanted to reclass when my initial came to an end and I was basically told that because of my MOS and identifiers that there was no ****ing way that could happen, because of their "investment". Well I hope their investment paid off when I walked out the gate and never looked back....
If the army was better managed like any other government entity they would try to retain and promote experienced people but they aren't so that's how it is.

To the guy asking why everyone says the military is ****, I hope you're reading this.

Makes not a bit of ****ing sense, he did however tell me that I could go the WO route, but then that lead to me to wonder what would happen if I failed out of flight school and couldnt hack it as a choppa pilot?

Well obviously you would get sent to an infantry unit, demoted to PFC and would have to take army infantry basic, because MC probably isn't up to their high standards.

I think it all boils down to the simple fact of the system itself, your going to take a highly training, motivated person, demote them into a MOS that most likely sucks and they dont want nothing to do with over some POS recuit that they will throw money at like no ones busines with not a second thought and think that is the best way to do business.

There is not a ****ing chance in HELL I would ever be a part of the navy, unless I was in early 20's trying to be a SEAL which Im not that hard so I would have never tried.

I have thought about crossing to the Army so that it would be easier for the wife and I to stay stationed together, she is also active duty.
