Thanks for your contribution to the thread and the Greatest Air Force!
“The biggest risk, is not taking a risk.”
Its unfortunate, that some guys you want to remain friends with, dont want to grow, so you just have to leave them alone. I tried to get some of my former friends to join the armed forces, but they’re too set on remaining mediocre in life. Im not saying that Armed Forces is the only answer, but they really dont have shit going on right now. I hope they muster up the confidence to take some risks and I can link up with them later on life when they’ve had an awakening, cuz I will not waste my time around lifeless people.
Good for you. You joined an Armed Force, the cowards did not.
I was an Air Policeman, SOG and it was all great. After Basic and Air Police school the USAF had me additionally trained at University of Maryland for criminology, Many courses from the Army Provoist Marshall General Schools, US Bureau of Prisons, Institute of Applied Sciences for investigations, and more and more. When I got out police depts fell over backwards to get me. We used to handle jobs alone, where today they sent a SWAT team. Veterans know how to handle trouble.
At age 70 I gtry to just work for my self, collecting bad checks, bills, small store embezzlement and serving papers. I am the highest paid in each of these fields, and love it. It is good to feel useful, and still alive.
Besides, you will have VA benefits when you get out. The “talkers” who did not have the guts to sign up full time will still be the wanna bee’s. Good for you, you are doing the right thing. And we have great base gymns.[/quote]
