There may be a few people out there that can remain calm in an extreme situation but I have been hunting with people who freeze up on a deer, other world-class shooters with military experience like Jerry Michlack (sp) will freeze in a competition. I cannot begin to imagine what itís like for a teenager to be dropped off in a strange place with less than 2 months training and all of the sudden thousands of rounds and explosions are raining down on him.

With ZOG closing down all the student loans and all the scholarships going to darkies soon the military will be the only way for a white person to get a kwallege edjewcation. People rag on soldiers but they are just doing a job and some as was the case in Vietnam against their will. To be honest if I were 18 right now even being a WN I would probably be in the military because they are offering a $20,000 bonus plus competitive wages for first time startups and bonuses of $60,000 for returning soldiers with special skills. Teenagers get all jacked up on online games like Halo and such and go to war thinking there will be a reset button.

Right now for a high school graduate in a low wage area the military offers the most attractive package even if it is a bad one. What other job is going to hire a person with no skills train you, give you money for college, give you a $20,000 bonus for starting up and pay you wages while you are there. Go to McDonalds and ask for that deal then see what happens.
that's a fact, my 31 yr old son joined when he was 29; I asked him had he been doing drugs, LOL; but he was given a $15000 bonus right off the bat. He really moved up fast; and has just been promoted to buck sgt. He is in El Paso at Ft. Bliss and was offered another bonus of $20000 for adding another 6 yrs. He tells me he would like to make it a career. Hell; nobody is offering that kind of pay in the civilian world. He lives in military housing just 5 minutes from work in a 3 bdrm home, no rent, no utilities, no insurance payments; SHIT, I wish I had it as good. His wife is a teacher and the school is 10 minutes from their place. I would say they're clearing a little better than 6 grand a month, must be nice. He just got his flight packet and will be training to fly blackhawk helicopters, damn; he's done well for himself and his 2 daughters and wife. It damn sure was not that way when I was in, but that was 40 yrs ago.
