Well we shouldn't have women in the army cuz girls can't beat boys!!! Jk I love 5th grade. Anyway joining the army is good but you shouldn't really join for money, I guess. Although does the money you make actually get spent while your in the army, or does it go into savings? I know they pay room and food so I'd think you could put it straight to savings, but idk. Anyway I know the pays not great I'm just wondering I'm considering thinking about going into the navy but I doubt I will. What do we really need an army for though, Obama's not gonna start a war any time soon. Anyways I'd support anyone willing to risk their life for their country.
94 I think you meant to reply to the other fml... Sean usually people who join the army do so cause they had no drive to get a higher education and therefore feel the only way they can make 50k is to join the army and be a grunt. At least the ones who join an armed force with he intention of going to college using the tuition assistance provided by the government for their services are making use of what options they do have. IMO army as a career choice, not a good idea. Army as a stepping stone, better.
I am in the Army and they are paying for two degrees, and they make just fine money, I did not join because of being lazy and lacking options, if you want to be lazy army is not the one to join. I joined for college you don't have to have some higher calling to join just sone character and lack of laziness
um they do get payed well or some do. I just had a friends daughts husband join and he getting $3k plus they are paying for their home and food, water, and eletricity. when he finish basic training he will get between a $1k to a $7k added to the $3k but that per month, they get the best health care and make more money for each rank they go up ad when and what rank theynarenwhen they retire they still get money. That's more then alot of people make. I make between $500 to $800 and no health care.
116 I have no idea where you are going with that comment but I spent time in the army. I have an associates degree in aircraft maintenance. I am also a paramedic. I own my home and make a great living. So what the hell are you getting at. The army helped me with my careers. I have enough education that I can now do at least four different career paths that make decent money.
116- armed forces can be a great career. you earn college credit as you progress in your career and never stop learning new things. the pay is decent especially since we don't pay for health care or housing and most bills, such as gas and electric, are covered too. the longer you stay in, the mote money you make. not everyone has to be a "grunt" in the military. I'm air force and I'm a cop. my cousin is army and he is computer missal annalysis. plus the paper you get while deployed is outstanding!!! no, it's not the easiest job in the world, and definately not the least stressful, but it's still a great rewarding job that could have a career made out of it. also, not everyone who came in has no drive to go to college. I was in nursing school and my funds ran out. this was the only way I could pay for my degree. so please, do your research before you bash on ppl in the military. OP, I'm sry. I hope things work out for you, but don't pay for his debt.
Wait.. he was trying? Sooo.... does that mean he didnt succeed? FYL - you probably have a gross hubby FYL - your hubby tried to cheat on you. FYL - you are paying off his debts.
as my good friend Veronica Mars says: life's a bitch, and then you die. ): life bitch slapped you pretty hard there, OP. maybe karma will apologize for ya.
This is why most men can't be trusted. Leave the cat alone, it'll play.
