So long and thanks for all the fish.
« on: May 01, 2008, 03:54:10 PM »
Hey y'all,

Leaving out next Tuesday or so for basic training with the US Navy, just wanted to say thanks for this past couple years here on arm. I doubt even the military can keep me away forever,  but expecting at least 2 months before I'll be back amongst you awesome people.

Wish me luck, and for the love of all things good, do NOT open that chest.

I resent that.

No....THANK YOU!

Seriously. Also to anyone else out there who is in the military or about to go to basic...I can't thank you enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'll be seeing you around Dia.  It's been a long, weird ride but I'm glad to have had a familiar person be around when I came to ARM.  Keep it real in the forces and come back as soon as you can.

Good luck man, I look forward to when you come back in the future -.^

My experience with bootcamp was this, it's easy once you admit it's funny. And it is, it's immersively intimidating, and overwhelming, but it can be a good time. You have to laugh at them. Just don't let them see you do it.

Good luck. You'll definitely be missed around here.

My Brother Just graduated from Boot Camp in the Navy in January form Great Lakes naval Academy in Chicago, IL. Turned out to be the best decision of his life. Good luck and thanks for defending our freedom.

Hint: corpsman may not be the safest MOS right now.
Though it might be the awesomest.

Take care, dude. Thanks for serving.

Who's going to be a corpsman?

That sucks.

Gotta go through Navy Recruit Training... Then the Marine Corps recruit training. I feel bad for them.

I call bullshit. Marines mess with SEALs all the time (okay, only when seriously drunk, but when AREN'T Marines seriously drunk, huh?) and anyone in his right mind is deadly terrified of Navy corpsmen.

Damn ... you got me ... I'm seriously drunk right now ... and I'm a reformed Marine.

But yeah you're right, we used to talk shit about any SEAL that wasn't a "wet dog" (ie a Marine who entered the SEAL program) ... just ... you know ... not while they were in the room.
