>enlisting at 32
don't worry the military is totally skill based and if you prove yourself you can rise through the ranks and
oh lord i can't take this any more
>Interacting with teenagers every day
Why would you do this to yourself
it could be based, free college and heathcare and health care
>heathcare and health care
what's the difference
One is to care about health, the other is for health about care
You're ignoring the part where military WILL break your body, riddle you with cancer and then they'll just throw you away and get new desperate wageslaves
Military is designed by the rich to serve their purposes. Do you think kiddiediddlers care?
No one outside of your family or friends cares about you, breaking news. You act like every other option isn't the same exact thing except the .mil admits it and gives you shit healthcare as a bonus. Literally the only reason to join is to advance your schooling. If you have no other options it's a fine one.
And the healthcare is SHIT anons. You need permission to go from someone you barely interact with and the medica will assume you're a piece of shit trying to get out of work. Until a cell on a spreadsheet turns red and now you're garbage for not going earlier.
>medical will assume you’re shaming
Doesn’t happen to me, I walk into any clinic and everyone treats me like a god
t. Butter bar
I care about you anon, hope you are doing well.
>starting college at 36
This. Any job that wants a college degree is going to ignore you coming out at 40.
Right. Might as well try for Army retirement for 20 years of service and get that pension + healthcare and then maybe make a little money in your spare time.
A lot of retards make shit decisions when they’re young which compounds and limits their good choices later in life.
^This but that pension plus the other benefits plus paying off most of a home via BAH etc is glorious. The bullshit doesn't follow you out the gate but the money does. Then add Social Security when the time comes and the sum is quite nice and proof against economic swings.
I did lots of bad choices and I'll be 27 next month, little experience, little skills, no friends, shit degree
What advice do you have for me? Sometimes I unironically think it's all over
If you want change in your life, and you have very few attachments to your current life, give it a shot. Just a warning though make sure you pick a rating that you understand what your day to day will be like. Also understand there may be a possibility that the military doesnt want to keep you in after an enlistment and with that in mind dont come back out with nothing. Get another degree, talk with/be firendly with the contractors that you may work with, get their business cards.
Do you want to be unironically retired at 47? Join the army. Even with a retarded degree you can join at E-4 and become a NCO within your first contract.
This right here. I'm 26 and already feel disconnected from zoomers. I cannot imagine being 32 and going to live in an institutional setting with 18 and 19 year olds for months on end.
You get promoted fairly fast when you are older, assuming you are mature and have some life experience. When I joined as an older guy I was showing half the other privates how to do their taxes. It gets easier as an NCO because you can tell them to shut up now and again. If you're worth following they'll listen.
The .mil still suck huge balls and you will have moments you regret joining, I imagine it's easier to fall in line as a young kid. But do your time and get your school.
he already posts on PrepHole AKA teenybopper central
>enlisting at 25?
You'll be fine, but you will be the old man always. Do your one contract and go to school. You're joking because you're a burnout anyway get what you can to get your life back on track.
Navy is taking recruits up to something like 41 now.
Is this for real?
I'm thinking of enlisting, problem is I dropped out and I need a GED. Getting the GED isn't the issue, I just don't wanna waste my time trying to enlist and then getting denied. With that being said, is right now the easiest time to enlist since they need bodies?? Or am I fucked either way?
Don't bother talking to recruiter until you get it. Otherwise pretty high chance of getting in.
Imagine not graduating fucking high school. Wow. Christ anon, you must be a huge fuckup. For someone as dumb as you, try to do 20 years in the military and you’ll be fine. In the Army it’s okay to be dumb as long as your strong.
My brother is disabled and was suicidal, he told me the only reason he didn't kill himself was because I dropped out to stick aroun. My dad needed help at home as well because he was also disabled. My mother was the only one working, as my sister and I were in school at the time. If I had to do everything over again, I would.
Your brother told you to ruin your education or he’d kill himself?
No, I just knew what would happen if I didn't. He encouraged me to stay in school, but I couldn't let my brother die just so I could pass HS. He told me a year after I dropped out that one of the only reasons he didn't kill himself was because I dropped out!
I enlisted around that age, just make sure you're passing physical before you go. Get a head start on memorizing things you need to know. You'll be fine, just don't end up getting battle buddied with a shit bag and try to avoid being the odd man out. Other than that just do what you're suppose to do and it's easy.
I somewhat did that, I'd make a yearly call to a few recruitment stations. Just go get the GED it's a lot easier than school. Take a few remedial classes and study in your off time. The Army is in a weird spot where they need bodies but they're not particularly acting like it, I would recommend waiting till they consider it a "crisis" and you hear about it in the media. Personally after the vax shit they just pulled I just don't consider the military a viable option for myself anymore but if you're not concerned about that sort of thing I'd still wait a while because it's not like zoomers are jumping at the chance to be in the military and get treated like dog shit for worse pay than dog shit.
They got rid of the mandates when the omnibus passed this year.
coast guard reinstated them so I guess US might get invaded
Coast guard always had higher standards, they're the only branch that actually protects the US. Well, that and the neutered border patrol.
Don’t, you’ll end up with soo many problems with your body. At 32 (36/37 when you get out) and wanting to join the military, I imagine that school was never your strong suit, which is fine, but if so what benefit do you hope to get out of this? Your body is gonna be left in a shit state that you’ll struggle in many of the low wagie jobs that you’d qualify for.
>tfw can never enlist or get drafted because I have an auto immune disease that gives me zero symptoms as long as I take one tiny pill a day
I was actually considering it too.
> be in warzone
> oops you can't get pills
I am a 36 year old private executive. Should I quit my 300k/year job to join the army? I always wanted to play dress up as GI joe.
>Should I quit my 300k/year job to join the army? I always wanted to play dress up as GI joe.
No you fucking idiot go LARP innawoods.
>implying you're not working at McDonald's
I'm not American, but I thought the reserves or National Guard were the LARP options for people that already have recently paying full time jobs?
do you really want to defend israel that badly?
when is the last time U.S fought for israel? 70s? 60s?
Moron. Real a single chapter of any geopolitics textbook. I'm doing you a favour by even replying to your shitpost.
t. Didn’t serve because you’d punch the drill sergeant
>beg to get RE Code 4 changed to RE Code 3 after getting bored as hell after medical retirement
>back in at 34 and heading to WOCS
Gonna be a gray haired cw5 one day, I hope.
>commissioning at 31
Set me down carefully as I’m a chad.
I kinda want to join the airforce, same age.
My roommate at AIT was 32, you'll be fine
That's practically what my older brother did. He's on 100% disability now just saying.
after you're in DOCUMENT ALL HEALTH/PHYSICAL/MENTAL RELATED ISSUES
I was actually surprised what came up when I started my ETS shit, injuries that happened when I first joined that I was able to claim disability for.
Also, be sure to keep ALL documents and what realllly gets the disability up is FOLLOW UP appointments. They want to see history too
>ay pls feel sorry for my bullshit story and frog picture
Fuck you, I hope you die in a freak gardening accident.
How about Natl Guard at 27? I'm an EMT so I was thinking medic or something similar.
You can still retire with a full 20 year military pension before the average American worker will retire (if they ever do).
>Enlisting but got rejected
Fuck the muhreens and their damn test
Did you fail the ASVAB or something?
No, he refused the complimentary Crayolas.
join the foreign legion they do lean older
Atleast with the mutt military, Anon would get free healthcare and not have to wait a year to be seen by a normal doctor. Imagine this poor aging retard destroying his back in Mali or some other dirt poor cunt just to be given crappy frog healthcare and a prolapse from the holhols and nogs in the legion
How can I enlist in the american military as a 28 year old german with no degree?
>Come to America
You don’t need to be a citizen to be an enlisted soldier in the Army. However, you will need to be a citizen to become an officer.
If school is the end goal just skip the military and do that
tried it. horrible waste of time and money if it's a shit college, and most are shit colleges if you really believe schooling to be the end goal.
>commissioning at 35
If I fail to get my career job by 30 i'm in probably. Not really worried as at that point I'm just admitting that I'm fucking up in this society and don't know what I'm doing so it's time to let uncle sam take the reins before I'm totally out of time.
