Whoa there dude, never was dissing the Army. NEVER said that. Sorry if you had a bad reaction to it. Im just saying. Thats what the MArine Recruiter told me. Not that the Army was insignificant or weak because i know that they definetely arent. I dont know where you got all mad about it but if i said something that you didnt like then im sorry but thats what the Recruiter told me. I would never have anything bad to say about the Army. I mean if you look at it more closely, there is some truth to it. I know a lot of people who are going into the Army because of college, or wanting to be a certain something. What the recruiter told me is that when you lok at it, and you see the military commercials, the Army ones always offer you what?.........Money, money for college, bonus things ya know whatever. Or they say you can be something, a technician, a pilot, a Ranger, etc etc. You lok at Marines commercials and what do you see?.............Overcoming obstacles. They have never mentioned any bonuses, college funds etc etc. In fact the only talking in them are at the end, when the narrator says " Find your place among the Few..The proud...The Marines." And as a question: DTop: Where was the disrespect for the people who have gone through it? Im talking ( or trying to) to someone who wants to be in the military. I was just relaying what the recruiter told me about the Marines. Sorry if i was helping out...And im in no way saying the Marines ar harder than the Army because of course i havent been there. I go to Church every Sunday, i think that has a tremendous effect on my attitude and respect. Maybe if you knew me well you would know that im not "disrespectful". Im different than a lot of other 14 year olds. I know you have to work for what you want, i know to respect people (which i still dont know how i didnt) I was brought up well. I have my mother to thank and my Church.
\" War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The degraded state of morale and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.\"

"Whoa, dude" is also disrespectful (I would love to be there if you decide to address a 1stSGT that way once you join), and your original post WAS disrespectful as well. As you are having some trouble seeing this, I will lay it out for you, you make a point of characterizing the Army as some sort of haphazard organization composed of unmotivated or undedicated personnel, which is extremely insulting to every Soldier.
No boom, no boom, no boom, Amen.

Excuse me sir, but i wasn't trying to be disrespectful, as i apologized already to DTop. And i do take responsiblity for my actions, but i didnt know what i did wrong. Now you have pointed that out to me. I never said the Army was haphazard or unmotivated, you point out to me where i stated that, and if i skimmed over something then i am truly sorry to everyone that i offended, and i also didnt know " Dude" was a bad term. And no, i wont address a 1stSGT like that, that would be common sense, and i have some of that .
IF I OFFENDED ANYONE, I AM SORRY. PLEASE FORGIVE ME AND I HOPE THAT THIS DOESNT MAKE YOU ALL HATE ME lol.
Oh and i might have been a little vague when i said:
Again i am deeply sorry for anyone that i might have offended, i would never mean to belittle the Army or the fine people who fight for them and our fine country. For me... DTop, Redneck. I am sorry if i offended you. Thank you.

ROFL! I didnt know that. Shows how much i know about the GI Jargon lol. Im glad we settled this, because i dont lke it when people are mad at me, i want to straighten things out, and on further inspection, i saw that i was being a little harsh and irresponsible with the way i was talking. Again i apologize.
