Reminder to everyone thinking about joining the military to have some integrity. There is no honor in lying to MEPS because they will find out and it's easier to get a waiver. Tell the truth to MEPS and turn in your recruiter if he tries to get you to lie to them.

Compared to the Marines' boot camp, it's a piece of cake. Compared to anything you're likely to encounter in the civilian world, it's jarring.

You're expected to move really fast to every destination, and then wait patiently when you get there. You will have to learn a new language on the fly. You will experience a considerable sense of dissociation, particularly in the first week, but once you get into the routine of it, the rest just flies by.

Yeah standards were also reportedly dropped for RASP back in 2012 and there was also some article in 2016 saying that standards would be dropped for women entering the 75th.

This si probably true. I think its a trade off though, loads of swimming in buds obviously but far less rucking to the best of my knowledge.

Will I actually learn a lot about firearms in the Infantry, or will I just stand in a line for 2 hours to shoot a dozen rounds? I saw a thread today saying veterans are all fudds that don't know shit

>>
>>36475880
>Is there any reason for me not to go 35M

it's still a really good job, but there are reasons to not do it.

they are currently overrecruited and will be overstaffed and then good luck getting promoted.

as of last year, at least, mikes were overstaffed by nearly 40%. ait classes were enormous. so you have a good chance of spending a lot of time doing work that has nothing to do with your mos.

also, there aren't that many slots in the ranger regiment for 35m's
>>
>>36475979
>Will I actually learn a lot about firearms in the Infantry
No. You actually do very little shooting and it's limited to only a few weapons. If you want to spent a lot of time around guns, get a job in the armory.
>>
>>36476012
I was thinking about this, is it hard to become one in the Army? If it's an actual mos I'll go for it but I don't want to go supply and get my hopes up.
>>
>>36475029
Sorry dude the only people that get into any kind of SOF is 6'3" at the minimum.
You have to be tall to run and do pushups bro
>>
>>36475981
What I don't get though is that if they're over recruited and soon to be overstaffed, why offer such a large enlistment bonus?

I figure that the Army offering such a hefty sum is a good indicator that they need more of that particular MOS.
>>
>>36476314
That's how the army always works, they will always rather have too much of something than not enough:
>We need more of X, recruit tons of them
>Oh shit, we have too many X, stop recruiting them

Right now the Army is still in step 1, so yeah, it's a great bonus to get while the getting is good.

It's MOS 91F, Small Arms/Artillery repairer. You would be responsible for the maintenance of everything from a pistol to a howitzer and everything in between. (The Marines also has an equivalent MOS 2111.)
I don't know how many open slots there are for the job, so I can't say how hard it is to get the job. That's for your recruiter to answer.
>>
>>36475981
How about 35P?

Very interested in that if OCS doesn't work out.
>>
>>36476537
>How about 35P

SIGINT is far more interesting, I think, than HUMINT. When you're not deployed a 35M has nothing to do. (a gross overstatement, but accurate on the whole) A 35P, on the other hand, is always working. 35P also gets top priority for DLI unlike 35M.
As a nice bonus, the Special Forces are always in need of more 35Ps, so you might get to work with them too.
>>
>>36475656
I was joking about the skinwalker. /x/ hasn't managed to take me yet. However, from what is publicly known, Delta selection is run out of Camp Dawson, WV. It basically consists of a ton of rucking alone across extremely steep mountainous terrain in West Virginia. The last ruck is said to be over 40 miles long and must completed within an unknown time set by the cadre. Then they take you to a review board and some Delta guys break you apart with the help of some lovely military psychologists. If everything checks out you, then enter a six month training course. If you complete all of that, congrats you're now a super secret oper8er.

Wannabe Marine Corps Officer here. No criminal record, no disqualifying medical problems, I have people who can give me good character references, but I have past drug use for more than just Marijuana.

If I know my MOS will require TS and thus a polygraph how do I handle the drugs issue?
>>
>>36476652
Yeah that seems to a reoccurring theme in cool guy unit selections. Drop people off in the middle bumfuck nowhere alone and work them until their minds break with minimal to no feedback from the cadre. RRC selection is similar.
>>
>>36476750
>>36476764
depends on your billet (ie where youre being sent to) since not every job requiring TS needs a polygraph.
>>
>>36476777
What>>36476788 said, not that I know exactly what jobs require it (except Intel), but as an officer isn't there a much greater chance I'll get a higher clearance and need to be polygraphed?
>>
>>36476810
Thus my dilemma. Take the chance and be what I want to be and risk federal prison? Or try and get a waiver and not even get accepted
>>
>>36476713
Navy doesnt need a waiver if you admit to experimental use for OCS. Marine will always need a waiver for pot anyway. Besides marine aviation is a deathtrap for pilots, dunno why anyone would "fly" for them, they barely even get <20 hours of flight a month
OPM (guys who do clearance) doesnt care about pot use
t. admitted to it and got clearance
>>36476813
>>36476810
>>
>>36476810
But to obtain a TS clearance I was under the impression you did have to have a polygraph
>>
>>36476813
Best solution is tell the truth on the poly. Lie at MEPS. I know someone that did something similar and they didn't give a shit (he admitted to using weed and acid)
>>
>>36476848
How about Army?

background: I want 35P which requires TS, but I did many many kinds of drugs in college. I don't now, and it was never a problem (in terms of stopping), and I never got caught.

>>36476848
Still me (>>36476914) in addition what about ROTC or PLC? In my understanding you only go to OCS if you did neither of those programs.

PLC and ROTC is during college, OCS is for once you graduate. Try to get ROTC scholarship or PLC before going for OCS. Paperwork for the lack of capable planes https://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/your-marine-corps/2016/04/26/the-marine-corps-aviation-fleet-is-in-peril/

Clearance Investigations are not done by the military, they are by the OPM. They won't give a shit about what you said at MEPS
The usual for enlisted is just clearance denied+assigned to shitty MOS. Only time you will get in trouble for it is if you are granted the clearance, then it comes out later you were lying to them so they investigate more and find out you lied at MEPS too.

Don't know how it works for officers though

>>
>>36477557
The DLAB is a sort of IQ test. It doesn't test any specific skill you have with any specific languages, but rather tests your ability to perceive the patterns inherent in languages. I've known people who could fluently speak three languages yet did terribly on the DLAB.

>do not all recruiters tell you to lie?

My recruiter told me "If you can prove it, you can be honest. If there's no paper trail, don't bother. Answer the only questions they ask you, don't volunteer any extraneous information."
But then, we were talking about a broken hand that I got when I was a child, not a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia.

Navy girls, are they hot?

I remember a concerted effort from shills saying Air Force girls were hot and they all look like busted shit.

Are the Navy chicks statistically hotter?
>>
>>36477630
>I was labeled "gifted"
So was everyone else you dumb bastard. Your highschool "achievements" mean fuck all unless they were enough to gain attention from Harvard/Stanford etc. And then you wouldn't be here.
>>
>>36477630
Here's an example I remember from when I took it:

In a gibberish language, all verbs end in the letter 'a'; which of these would mean 'eat'?
> tomo, kamo, kama, kato
In that language, verbs always precede the subject; which of these would mean 'the man eats'?
> kama ak, hasta kama, tomo ak, mohan tama
In that language, adjectives' endings agree with the nouns and adjectives come after the subject; which of these would mean 'the fat women are eating'?
> kama akko magro, kamo akko toma, kama magro mag-ak

It's stuff like this and it will just keep going and going until you're reading entire stories in this nonsense language.

There's also an audio portion that tests how well you can identify vocal stresses and what they mean in relation to spoken languages.

Junior officers are. Other than that, it's rare. There are girls have potential, but because they're poor, they don't know how to take care of themselves, or the Navy lifestyle simply doesn't allow for the level of care they need.

No. They're chunky black women who don't need no men and pancake face butter balls. The very, very few "hot" women are walking STD clinics or staff corps officers (JAG, nurse, doctor, etc).

Typically yes, but really, what other subset of females in the Navy has the highest odds of being good-looking?

- Early 20's
- Educated, meaning middle-class or wealthy
- Middle-class/Wealthy, meaning a healthier diet and lifestyle in addition to being more conscious of and having more access to how to maintain a good appearance

Sure, you'll find plenty of double-baggers, but, then, you're bailing against the tide regardless of where you look.

During my time at OCS, about 99.9 % of the hotties were the nurses, doctors, and lawyers at ODS. OCS is buttery as fuck. I only met one girl there who I could describe as hot and last I saw her she was sitting in H class due to "stress fracture of the hip" like every other female at OCS. Or maybe your standard for "hot" is different than mine.

Trust me on this, Marine: if you want hotties, go to the clinic.

Nah, man. Nowhere should it ever be misconstrued or implied that ANY subset of women in the Navy are majority hot.

To put it numerical terms (and I'm just spitballing)
Enlisted: 4% hot
Junior officers: 8% hot

Most 17C and 35Q assignments are with federal agencies. You actually have a higher chance to do agency work in the Army than the Navy because the Navy has a bunch of postings for CTN elsewhere. At the same posts, they're essentially the same job with different uniforms.

It's doable. It's not crazy hard, just gay.
11bang, came in at 17 right out of high school.

Daily Life At Cole Range:
- 0000-0300 unknown distance ruck
-0300-0400 MRE, 15 min to eat, they check everyone's bags for any leftover food
-0400-0800 Land nav, aim for 12/20 points if 11b, 10 if non combat MOS
0800-1700 Get smoked, e5s give you op orders and you follow them, smoked more
1700-2000- Ruck, unknown distance
2030-the next ruck is land nav.
Basically 2 rucks and 2 land navs a day, in between suck.

Sand babies. We didn't meet a time hack so for one of our rucks we had to have a 60lb sandbag extra in them. Fun stuff.

Best part for me was the day before graduation, Regimental CO came down and basically said don't be proud of yourselves, you still ain't shit. Made me smile
>>
>>36482200
PLEASE LISTEN TO PSA

Don't go 18x unless you wanna be a cook. No one 18x makes it and youll get reassigned. Pick up an SF contract in infantry OSUT so your MOS is at least guaranteed. They give those contracts out like candy in OSUT.

Any advice on training for rucks? I'm hitting around 70 pushups and 85 situps, 10:32 2 mile run, 32:30 5 mile run, but I'm worried that my back isn't strong enough yet.

You're leagues ahead of where I was. Get your ruck set up however comfortable it is for you. You'll have plenty of time in pre rasp to get it situated.

>>36482356
Nah, just run a few times a week. Your whole body dynamic will change in OSUT. You will be in shape for rasp.

this might be a retarded question, but are there any specific physical traits one should have if you're a tanker? (other than being short)

I saw a few cuties at meps joining the Navy. There were no cuties joining any other branch. Since they were cute they got my attention, but I assume the majority are average and below.

This can't be true. Before the polygraph I would image the tester is given a folder with all the things you've told the government up to that point. If you admit to never doing drugs and then switch on that a few months later, that is proof of fraudulent enlistment.

>No one 18x makes it

Plenty make it. In fact their pass rate is pretty good after you adjust for the people that just plain should never have signed for the contract in the first place. A lot of 18X attrition is before they even get through OSUT/Airborne.


> Pick up an SF contract in infantry OSUT so your MOS is at least guaranteed.

Absolutely heard stories of dudes getting Needs Of The Army after doing this.

Converting your contract to 18X during OSUT - Risk of "needs of the Army".

Fully qualifying in your MOS and dropping a SFAS packet at your first unit - MOS guaranteed.
>>
>>36482460
Well I think I'll go for an option 40 contract and see where that takes me. Right now I have a 13:12 two mile, 74 push-ups, 79 sit-ups, and I can do 16 pull-ups to failure. Anything else I should focus on training while I finish out school? I haven't really prepared myself for rucking but I backpack pretty consistently

This is what people on /k/ continuously don't understand about this process. Your clearance investigator is not trying to prove fraudulent enlistment. They don't give a shit what you told MEPS. If you're 100 % up-front on your SF-86 and potential polygraphs, that's what you need for a clearance.

They're two completely separate processes that have different packets of paperwork going to different people for different reasons.

Thank you for the help. I have 64 college credits, is it possible to become an officer without the full amount? 13SX sounds like a bigger responsibility than 1C6X1.
>>
>>36482540
ALright obviously not no one, but the attrition rate is near 85%.

I sat through the SF brief in OSUT, with three other guys who all went SF, 11b is guranteed, they have a contract written up for osut guys.

Buddy just broke his femur in selection, picked up SF in osut, his MOS is safe. Maybe things have changed since you've heard about it
>>
>>36482578

> I have 64 college credits, is it possible to become an officer without the full amount?

Technically you can commission shortly before you complete your degree. Realistically, 99%+ of officers have their 4-year degree complete before commissioning. Your best bet would be to attend a university with AFROTC and complete your degree while enrolled in their program.

Yeah my beltway friend did LSD during his college years and he managed to get a TS just fine. He just literally put every single secret he had onto his SF86 and everything worked out.

>the attrition rate is near 85%.

The attrition rate for 18X who make it through the prep course is lower than the attrition rate for randoms coming out of the regular Army by dropping a packet.

Enlisting infantry to go SF later is a meme. Either pick an actually good job with a clearance or something and then drop a packet, or just go 18X from the start. 11X -> Packet is the worst of all worlds.
>>
>>36482628

I think the current max age to commission without prior service is 35, so you're probably fucked. You could enlist and work on your degree while active though. They let you commission older if you have enlisted time.
>>
>>36482665
Unless you've enlisted 18x in the past 6 months, wrong about this. Don't know where you're getting information, a lot of the online forums are outdated.

How is SF later a meme? as long as you're airborne, you can dcrop a packet and they'll send you, especially since group is 20% under work power
>>
>>36482631

Breddymuch. The military application process gets kind of heavyhanded and moralistic sometimes. The clearance process, on the other hand, is nearly amoral. All they care about is that you bare every little secret to them. Sold a bunch of cocaine to orphans when you were a teenager? Doesn't matter to the clearance process because now they have it on paper and it can't be used to blackmail you.

>>36482694

>as long as you're airborne, you can dcrop a packet and they'll send you, especially since group is 20% under work power

What kind of shit unit are you in that is requiring airborne to let you go to SFAS? I've only ever seen two SFAS packets denied, and that had to go up to the GO level because the unit they wanted to leave absolutely couldn't afford to lose them.

SF later isn't a meme. Enlisting 11X with the intent to go SF is a meme. Enlisting as something worthwhile and dropping a packet later is perfectly respectable. Conventional infantry is an absolute bottom-of-the-barrel MOS in peacetime. It's not even a good place to prep for SFAS.

Sounds good enough. I'll look into it, thanks.

Only second hand knowledge on this, so take it with a grain of salt.

After airborne you;re sent to STudent company, basically pre pre selection. Get smoked all the time and do land nav sometimes, have some classes on basic movements.

Then you're sent to SOPC, which is a weed out course for selection, not super strenuous, just gateways you have to pass. They'll teach you everything you need to know to pass selection, just don't quit on yourself
>>
>>36482750
Interesting. What’s the time frame for that stuff?
>>
>>36482759
Varies depending on when they have slots available for classes. You can probably find out a lot more than i know from shadowspear or books on sfas. But i recommend knowing every detail about it before you go in, that's the best way to prepare
>>
>>36482750

This shit right here is why the 18X selection rate is so good. A new 18X enlistee goes through like eight gates before they even get to selection, weeding out the vast majority.

18X first day of BCT - Very low chance to become an actual green beret.

18X first day of selection - Fairly good chance to become an actual green beret.

I have a small dilemma, I am getting all my stuff taken to another state with family but the only time it could be done was a couple of weeks before basic. I would be storing all of my stuff but want to still have computer access in the time before and needed a new laptop anyways. My recruiter and other said I could take my laptop to basic to be stored but recommended against it for vague reasons or that it might be broken, they said to ship it to me at tech school.

Could I bring my laptop to be stored at basic or will I have to live off of a phone for a couple of weeks? Please help.
>>
>>36482777
it will most likely get broken or stolen. just have it shipped to you and use your phone in the meantime.

Things get stolen in lockup that much? Thank you if this is the case but man that sucks if that's the case. My plan was to put it in a locked case from hell and lock that to my bag.
>>
>>36482777

The day you head out to BCT, ship off your laptop to family. After BCT when you can have it again, have them ship it back. Or just have whoever you're staying with now ship it to you when you can have it again.

Don't take it to BCT.
>>
>>36482800

It's not that common for shit to get stolen, but they're literally just going to throw everyone's bags into a pile in a cage with a concrete floor. Those bags may or may not be periodically smashed and moved around. They may or may not be protected from the elements.

Basically the policy is that the military takes 0 % responsibility for any of the civilian shit you decide to bring to BCT, so it's entirely on you if it gets broken or stolen.
>>
>>36482773
I really don't get how people think it's a good idea to enlist as an 18x without getting close to a 300. Do that many people not understand what they're signing up for?
>>
>>36482830
Not that tiger guy, but 100% yes. The cod kid meme isn’t a meme at all. Loads of weak dumbasses grab 18x and buds contracts thinking they’re Jason Bourne.
>>
>>36482830

You really don't think there's tons of kids who just instantly sign on the dotted line when they hear "Special Forces contract"?

For every person reading military forums and doing research on potential contracts, there's five who just waltz into the recruiter's office and pick something that sounds good.


18X is an easy win for recruiters. They don't give it a shit whether they're signing on someone who can make it because that isn't their problem. Either people do their research and preparation to become SF, or they fail out and the Army gets to fill another slot it has open. Win/win.
>>
>>36482804
>>36482819
Thanks, makes sense. I'll see about doing that then. Pretty nuts, I wonder if they sell padded steel cases for laptops for people in our situation or utility workers. I always thought these were cool though obviously not getting it:
>>
>>36482870

Lots of people use Pelican cases and the like when transporting their electronics to/from deployment (where bags can similarly get smashed up). The other popular solution is just to have a cheap disposable laptop that you don't mind getting smashed up or stolen.

Either solution is complete overkill for BCT, where you can't have your laptop anyways so it's dumb to bring it at all.
>>
>>36482888
>Either solution is complete overkill for BCT, where you can't have your laptop anyways so it's dumb to bring it at all.
Absolutely, I wouldn't have wanted to be in the situation of being without a laptop for those few weeks and wouldn't consider it otherwise. It is very normal to have it in tech school though, no? When moving from tech school to my new place should I consider using such a case? Thanks for all your help.
>>
>>36482911

Tech school to your first duty station will be a standard PCS, meaning you can either have the government hire a private company to move your stuff or you can do it yourself. Either way, I'd just put your expensive electronics on one of the bags that is coming with you on your plane/car to your duty station.

Great so just lie about the mj to the recruiter and meps and then when its time for the sf86 and polygraph tell them everything you did in college

>middle school 10-14 yo range
>non-underageb& 18+ yo range
>medical records destroyed 7-10 years after existing
Don't ever bring it up lest you have to prove it and the records simply don't exist.
>>
>>36482773
Selection rate for everyone is 30%, where 18xs have least experience and bias for cadre.

Then the q has high attrition too, so im not seeing how you think 18x has a fairly good chance of getting the beret. Are you in service and aware of something im not tracking?

Can someone go into basic out of shape and make it through? Out of shape means 40 pushups in two minutes and 80 sit ups in another two.
>>
>>36483075
Dude you're in shape. You gotta get 42 pushups and 56 situps at the end of OSUT. don't sweat it
>>
>>36483080
ok what if you arent that guy and can barely do 10 pushups
>>
>>36483080
That's pushing myself, I'm exhausted and sore afterwards, I can pace myself with the runs so I'm not worried with them. Is there any sprinting involved in basic? I'm terrible with those.
>>
>>36483094
Seconding this. I can train for 6-8 months to prepare if it's that hellish, but if boot sets you up to go from skinnyfat dyel to barely passing, I'll enlist sooner rather than later.

I have something called a "choroidal nevus", basically a benign freckle in my eye. It's visible when a doctor does an eye exam. I'm trying to go to BUD/S, so I was wondering if this is something I might actually need to try to get a waiver for. Do they do any type of eye exam, as in looking into them? It doesn't affect my vision in any way.
>>
>>36483242
does it hinder your vision?
if not why the fuck would it matter at all
>>
>>36483242
Since it is very visible and you are at all worried I would get a waver and doctor to certify it is simply cosmetic.
>>
>>36483242
I dont see ot being a problem, depends on the examiners mood
>>
>>36482991
I heard they don’t even check medical records because it’s a waste of time and resources contacting every recruit’s hospital. It’s not like a criminal record that goes into a national database.
>>
>>36483094
dont worry about your pushups. the army isnt about letting anyone fail unless the person want to drop out completely. they even ship pt failures to fat camp to train until they passed (i went there bcuz skinny fat). i failed all my apft up until i got to ait and now im sitting round 250.

>so they compensate with extra abuse

I remember a female DI (this would be in 2004), maybe 5'2" 100lbs, white, heavy Southern accent, great body, busted face, whenever she would order a recruit to do some extra push-ups, running etc, she would make that recruit pick someone in his platoon who would also have to do those exercises with him, even if the guy picked hadn't done anything wrong.

I think she wanted the recruits to all hate one another. God only knows why.
Everyone in the platoon despised her.

Even when we got our EGA and the DI's were telling us how proud they were to each of us, she was still just sneering.

seems like a decent tactic. i wouldn't know who to pick, you either pick someone out of shape/tired and they don't like you or you pick an in shape person and they don't like you. it's a no win situation. you'd think recruits would be more understanding of bullshit forced because of eachother.
>>
>>36481575
they don't look at internet history, if they did thousands of recruits would be denied because of loli porn
>>
>>36484452
I spoke to some former DIs about afterwards. They were pretty stunned.

The point is to get the recruits unified. Since these are individuals who have never been part of a team before, the quickest way to get them unified is to get them to hate something. In this case, the DIs.

The problem with this bitch is that she made us hate each other.

Some guy fucks up and he picks you simply because he remembers your name? Or is it because he doesn't like you? He's friends with X, so he's sure as heck not going to pick him. Why did this guy pick me? He knows that my shoulder has been aching all week. It turns into drama and politics.

There were a few of us who made deals with each other. "If I have to pick someone, I'm picking you and you pick me. That way no one gets surprised and no one gets pissed off."
>>
>>36484523
that seems like the absolute best way to do it.

So I broke/fractured my wrist wehn I was like 6-7 and never brought it up on any forms or at meps. There was no permanent damage and ive been fine ever since however technically this was lying seeing as how they ask if you've ever had and broken bones. But seeing as how it was so long ago and there was no permanent damage i figured i'd not bring it up so I wouldn't need a waiver or anything. Only thing i've "lied" about in the recruitment process, everything else i'm legit good on.

Is this gonna fuck me at some point if they ever find out? Or will it not be a big deal/they never will/I can claim to have forgotten and won't get fucked by it?

>>
>>36483237
From all my buddies that have been through and are still going through, they say don't take 18x. But it's the same as a BUD/S contract I suppose, and people pass that. If you're super moto, and dedicated, you'll do fine.

you will usually have some alert that "your shit is monitored" before accessing anything on a system that is monitored, mainly so you cant use that as an excuse.
