My grandfather was on this sub back in WWII. The USS Pilotfish. She now rests at the bottom of the Bikini Atoll in 300+ feet on her side. My grandad had some crazy stories. RIP Pop.

Ok so I figure after four to six years as Aviation Structural Mechanic I should cross rates to some cush landside job and knock out a few college business classes, start preparing to open up my own field. That or cross rates to Nuclear Engineer and just bring in oodles and oodles of money.

I'm pretty skeptical that ADD disqualifies you from service, that would DQ about 1/4 of US kids nowadays.

If you joined an MOS expecting it to pay dividends in the future don't be surprised when it doesn't or you Effin hate it. Keep your nose clean and work hard to make it work for you. The military is absolutely, 150%, what you make it do for you.

Stay out of trouble. Don't find yourself getting NJP. Don't worry about getting promoted before you get in. I was e-1 snuffy when I went to ft lost in the woods and got promoted to e-4 before my battle buddies that started out their army careers at e-3. Good luck!

Doesn't NAVY stand for Never Again Volunteer Yourself?

The main thing that irks me is that the doctor took me off the meds after a couple of years when I was a kid declaring that I didn't need it. That says to me that I DONT have an issue. But because it was on my record I got d/q all the same. That's what bothers me day in and day out. That and the fact that they take illegal immigrants but not a guy who had taken ridelin

I've always wanted to join the military but apparently I was born with a slight heart murmur... not sure if it's on my medical record. But I've played sports my entire life and am in shape, and it's never affected me. I'm just afraid they would DQ me because of that...
