    Just guessing that you're alot better off with your decision. I can't even imagine the wtf level of international chaos that none of us are aware of.

    There is an old man in Beirut that really meant for those kids to stay off his lawn.

    My ASVAB scores were actually really good. Which is odd, because my ACT score really, really wasn’t.

  • Find out who is shooting this video. This is some kind of message. These explosions are happening all over. Wtf is going on?

  • this is scary. I dont care who you are.

  • My suspicions are maybe being validated

    They found a myriad of tunnels and excuse Hezbolla when they say they found no munitions

    BUT....... maybe that's what all the fireworks were prior to the blast

    Ammo exploding

    Videos circulating online, as well as rumors and reports, indicate that “tunnels” have been found in the wake of the Beirut explosions. Some have asserted that this is evidence of Hezbollah “tunnels” storing weapons at the Port of Beirut, while others think they were used for human trafficking. Both SkyNews and Russia’s Sputnik News claimed there was a “labyrinth network of tunnels.”

    I have friends in the Navy who try to get the equivalent rating for PR/Public Affairs but they wind up getting stuck doing general ratings and such for awhile. Army may be different, as some kids can DEP and/or do LDAC or other things, esp. if they have ROTC on campus.

    I know you have to wait your turn, though. And these were guys who had good ASVAB scores too, and good test scores. Some did leadership courses as well.

    I had a great time in the leadership schools. In USAREUR/7th Army Warrior Leader Course, we had a few international (NATO) students from Moldova and Poland. It’s a cool thing about training overseas.

    I tried to get in to the Army but am partially blind in my right eye and they wouldn't let me in. :( I did ROTC in KSU for a semester to try it out as an elective though, and even covered ROTC for the newspaper beat. They actually liked me because I like military history/tactics/etc. and they were surprised. LOL. Kent Read, Kent Write, Kent State.

    Military history is pretty cool. I haven’t dug super deep but there are some YouTube channels on military history that are pretty great. TimeGhost, Mark Felton Productions.
