    There is no way to understand without enlisting. If you really want to know go see a recruiter and get it done.

    Writing a congressman isn't going to do much for you. The doc at MEPS doesn't answer to Congress. But if he has all the info your psych had available and it isn't enough, it does sound like he's just...

    There's exactly one way to get better at running. Run.

    A mile and a half is really a pretty short run. If you don't have the aerobic capacity to do well in that distance you need to start amping...

    It isn't any more of a felony to take a firearm into a bank than it is to take it anywhere else. If the individual in question has a valid CCW he can carry it into a bank all day every day unless it...

    I took a different approach with my firearms. I kept them at home when I went to a new duty station. Mom didn't mind having them around so it wasn't a problem. Once I got there and got to know some...

    There is a possibility that you'll deploy without the follow-on schools if that is what is needed. There's no way that we can look into the future and know exactly what you'd be facing once you got...

    I can't believe that it hasn't been mentioned that pistols are next to useless in combat. They are there for people that have jobs that make it difficult or impossible to deal with a rifle and for...

    Let me know what you find out. The poolee hall was my favorite section of the site. Now I rarely post at all.

    I have never understood why poolees care so much about the glasses. You're going to be surrounded by recruits and Drill Instructors of the same sex. Most of the time you're going to be dirty, nasty,...

    To the original question- yes I have a concealed carry permit. When and where I carry is none of anyone's business other than my own. I will say that I am a law abiding citizen and I have no...

    The law enforcement jobs can be competitive. Nothing wrong with LAPD or LASO, but don't assume you'll just walk into the job. As the economy gets worse there will be ever more people looking to do...

    Best idea for anyone is to wear go fasters to boot. If something comes up and they don't have your size you're prepared. If they do, you'll toss them into the box and that'll be the end of it.

    Just to put it out there, there is nothing wrong with having only shot a .22 pistol. In fact, there everyone would be better served if they never fired any weapon before boot camp. But even if you're...

    Call your local Officer Selection Officer, and he can help you out.

    You can get guaranteed air, which means if you make it through flight school you will be a pilot. Since I've never been to TBS...

    MCI isn't a college, they are courses you take. You'll take plenty of them over the course of your career.

    In short, no- neither of those are a path to a commission. If you want to get a degree...

    The recon contract does nothing more than promise you a shot at the indoc. I have never known anyone that didn't have that chance anyway. If you want it, you can try for it. But, it isn't exactly...

    I spent some time in the Reserves after I left active duty. It is NOT the same thing. You simply don't have the tight knit relationships you have with the people in your unit on active duty. And the...

    LAAD going away is just a natural progression. In my day LAAM went away when LAAD got the Avengers. It just happens. As new gear comes along you simply don't need the old stuff any longer.

    The Marine Corps has been here for 233 years. It isn't going anywhere, so there is no need to rush.

    One thing you have to learn about the Marine Corps is to hurry up and wait. They may rush you...

    You sign the contract to be the 03. All the little Ricky Recon contract does is promise you a shot at the indoc, which they'll give you anyway. If you don't make it through the indoc, they'll send...

    It used to be very hard, and you had little if any choice over what your MOS will be.

    It seems to be a little easier now, but they could change that tomorrow.

    I used to do Crossfit, but I think it is a little too "gymnast" oriented. It is good stuff, but there are people out there doing similar things that are more effective. Stew Smith is my favorite. A...
