Before you run off and try to enlist, just think about what you are putting your life on the line for. I was on track for the AF academy but I dropped my nomination and didn't bother applying after learning more about government. A family friend joined to pay for college when he was eighteen. He was only twenty when he came back. It was a closed-casket funeral. Politicians are in it for themselves, they don't care about the average citizen. Look at what they have done to our economy and our c

164-- I agree. that's my philosophy, and I would only be in the military if we were getting invaded. although it would be more likely that we get drafted

I love all the whiners that try to dissuade others from joining. if you are truly successful, do you think all the people that want to kill you and your family without even knowing you are going to realize that peace and acceptance is better?

"YDI" is "You Deserved It." "OP" is "Original Poster." OP: It's a legitimate question, and it may be a coping mechanism, so humor your parents.

#128- for your info, they are not just scene or emo. that name just shows they're a fan of fall out boy...it's from one of their songs. OP: find out why they want to know. if it's just being prepared, say, to pay for your possible funeral, that's just them thinking ahead. otherwise, they just suck at life and being parents. it's one thing to want to be prepared...it's a whole other thing to not support what your child wants to do. it's your decision. For all of the comments against the war

They may have been trying to give you a wake-up call that enlisting in the military during an unwinnable war isn't all banners and glory. Or, they could just be greedy pricks. Your call.

That's what I was thinking. They were trying to make the point that you could die and just be a statistic.

we all ready won the damn war and by the way we were fighting Neo Nazis in Germany for years after WWII ended so anti insurgency war isn't new nor is it "unwinnable"

Considering the circumstances, it's a reasonable question, especially if they didn't ask it right away...it was bound to come up somehow. I think you're being too harsh on the parents. Their child just told them they'd like to throw themselves in the line of fire.

God! Looks like your parents either want you to die or don't think that you'll last in the military. Must admit, your life is fucked.
