Jesus f*cking christ, the Staff NCO's at my recruiting station have all been in for ~10 years (some more) and are now Staff Sergeants. Good Marines too. If your 21 you must still have under 4 years of service, how'd you get to that rank so quick? What rank did you join as?

This here is the truth mang. I joined as a 6 year, so when i graduated basic my -date of rank- started then. After that it was 20 weeks or finish tech school and you get that rank from date of rank. (E3) After that for me it was just a waiting game. 2 years and 4 months. Then i got E4. If you get it with 6 months or more until the testing cycle, you're eligible to test, which I did, and then it's back to the waiting game. You get a line number and that's what number you are to put on that next stripe. I'm still waiting. I will be until somewhere around May-June, possibly into July.

Silly, the Annual awards for 2011 are already out. This will be for the year of 2012. I just have to keep on volunteering and busting my ***.

Was your intention of starting this thread to talk about how ------- awesome you are or are you just that full of yourself that it naturally took that path?

That makes me feel a LOT better, that's like being a Corporal in the Marines. (Pvt, PFC, Lance Corp, Corp, SGT, SSGT, Gunnery SGT and so forth.)

Edit: do you mean E-5 or E-4?

Honestly I've read a ---- load on this forum with your posts in it. You are ------- ruthless and I don't know what I did to get you to start talking ---- to me but this is the only time I will acknowledge it. I really don't want to start any more bullshit than what has already been posted I just want to be a part of this forum and get to know everybody. I just wanted people to know who I am and what I'm about. That's all, nothing else.

Don't even get me started on Security Forces bullshit. Yeah you guys work your *** off, hated on until your needed, and put up with some dumbshit, but have you ever worked FLIGHTLINE? I have it easy on this DEPLOYMENT because I got shoved into a desk job at MOC because they had a slot to fill and I had time in grade. Now that I have my line number I'll be going back to 14 hour days, making the ------- MISSION happen. You know, sortie generation to protect the idiots that went in as bullet sponges? Don't hate on my job because YOU picked a shitty career field.

Damn straight. I wouldn't trade my job for SF even if they offered a huge *** bonus. No disrespect to him, thanks for the service. Somebody has to do the job and it's great he stepped up. I'm just saying don't call my job ------- easy until you spend 2 years changing JFS, CGB, Pawl carriers, and living the shitty life of box nasties.

I'm going to shoot things in hot places where people speak gibberish, but first I'll get screamed at for 3 months for no apparent reason. After I get done getting screamed at I'll come back to this thread and cast judgment down upon you all.

Have you decided what branch? 3 months sounds a lot like Marines.
