yea, I deployed to Kandahar...aka big *** ****ing base filled with stupid ****..and ****...literally.

Everytime I traveled to a small FOB it was a lot better. Sure their accomodations weren't all that great somestimes, but no one ****ed with me about reflective belts, the chow was better imo, and overall I just had a better time but like previous convo's mentioned, it's what you make of it. Thankfully I have a ballin OIC who let me do some things I wouldn't have been able to do.

Small FOBs are better. But there is a point of diminishing return. If you get small enough that you have to **** in a hole then burn it those suck. 1 hot meal a day if you are lucky. MRE otherwise.

The one thing that kinda sucked about our small FOB was that we had to pull a guard tower shift about once a week. But that is about the only thing I could complain about. No reflective belts. Civis after work. No salute. Good chow. Gym wasn't packed. More mission focused so less bull****.

Never been, but I hear there's quite a few operators out there doing operator stuff...we had a flight surgeon deploy there and that's what he told me...just a lot of operators.

EDIT: Finally purchased all my DE shaving materials...all of it should be here by the 22nd. Dye, how is the DE working out for you so far??

I'll be THAT guy. Whether true or not, this isn't the place to speculate or discuss

I just bought 100 Astra blades for $10. $10 in blades will last me a whole year.

Saving money is awesome. But I have been thinking about picking up a EJ DE87/89. I would also like to try a new shave soap, but this Proraso tub has lasted me like 3 months and isn't close to used up yet.

EDIT: Well ****. Just impulse purchased a new razor, and 2 new soaps.

But for real, everyone knows we have operators there...

One of the main missions of SF is to partner with foreign governments to provide training to their army. They are not all "repel down in the middle of the night and cut your throat" missions.

Thinking about going a completely different route when I get out and becoming a paramedic. I am going to do some ride-alongs and whatnot to see if I would enjoy it, but I have always really had a passion for all things medical since I got in.

Tyler, I heard a rumor that some hospitals on base offer an EMT basic class for free except for the cost of the book and whatnot. Any truth to this?

Holy ****. There is a guy out here at the schoolhouse is a reserve gunner (sma) out in Cali. Was talking to the guy out at the gun range and he is a emt/fire fighter. He clears $1000 a day when you include overtime. He lives in San Fran area so its really expensive obviously but the pay is comparable nation wide. You get an extra 10 points hiring preference when applying as a veteran. I would really look into it. He said it gets old picking up drunks all the time but the pay and hours make it worthwhile. Plus you can easily pull double retirement after a bit.
