69, Are you implying that every soldier is involved in a seemingly endless scandal? If so then I take offense to your statement since I'm in the Army as well.

Dude I was freaking kidding, and even if I did I'm pretty sure there's a crap load of soldiers with your last name. I thought I had a unique last until I joined smh

Never doubt someone just because they happen to be old. Better yet; don't doubt anyone because you have NO CLUE what they are capable of doing. Especially if they are mentally unstable or sick in the head.

Sorry, Umm her age doesn't matter because she had a gun. It's not as pathetic as it would've been if the old woman would've manhandled him without a weapon. OP shouldn't be ashamed..

Don't worry 4, I got your comment(: I thought of my 94 year old great grandmother, and thinking of her as a "strapped broad" made me laugh. Unfortunately she also has dementia, so if she were to try to mug someone, she'd forget what she was doing and who you were before she could get any money out of you!

25- PTSD can be caused by many things, and there are different levels of PTSD. It's not something that people get after they come from war. I remember being told that everybody who comes home from boot camp has at least a small amount of PTSD.

Basic training is meant to simulate an overly stressful environment but not enough to be traumatic. If someone ends up with any form of PTSD from basic training they probably aren't fit for military service. Especially with the way basic is run these days... cell phones and px trips every weekend, or so I hear from the new people that have come to my unit.

75, not sure what branch you're in, or where you went to Basic Training, but I went to FT. Benning, GA and we only went to the PX every couple weeks for haircuts and hygiene items. And the only people who were allowed to use their cell phones were the ones who didn't have any phone cards for the pay phones. And we only got to do that every few weeks. But you are correct in saying that it is not meant to cause PTSD or be traumatic in any way or form. In fact I had a blast at Basic

Hazing is illegal in a lot of places. It's because it is getting so hard core it is leading to deaths. And no university wants a death due to students on record. Hazing is one thing, but people are pushing things too far. Like everything, a select few ruin it for everyone.

87. I think I went to the PX once or twice my entire cycle (and we went as a platoon) and wasn't able to use my phone or a pay phone until graduation week. I was referring to the cycles since mine about how they have their phones every weekend and what not.
