Who here is in the military/ROTC?
I am in the Air Force ROTC and I know that soldier_of_misfortune is in ROTC as well. I was just wondering who else here was/is in the military/ROTC?

Yaay, I was mentioned! Weve been havin Ranger PT followed by battalion PT 520-730 MWF and Ranger training (rope bridge, ruck march) 520-7 TTh all last week and till late Oct. It sucks, but totaly worth it. Yesterday we did 270 pushups all together. It sucked.

I did the ROTC thing- lots of bullcrap put out in those classes- most of the instructors havent been in the mix in quite awhile. I was in Army ROTC and did a stint with the NROTC while active duty at UW..I had to leave that crap..most instructor saw ZERO days at sea, delpoyed etc, had never had military responsibility- (or atleast not in the last 3 decades!) - which is heresy IMO for a military man- worthless.
I suppose it is a good way to get a commission, I am not knocking that one bit- just the circus that runs most units is a joke.

My roommate is in ROTC. I get to hear about all the BS and incompetence, way too much of a hassle for me to ever even consider joining, too many azzholes.

Yeah same with mine. The LT has some crazy stories. I go to field training this summer and I can't wait.

I was in the Army during the 1st Gulf War. Airborne All the Way!
R = Recruit
O = Officer
T = Training
C = Core
However, I was not an Officer and would not want to be one, I worked for a living. I got out as an E-5 or buck sergeant.
