I can't say what I'm going to do in the future but I am not planning on joining any time soon. It would take a lot of motivation and something I am willing to fight for to join the military.

Have you had an opportunity to enjoy some CocoIchiban yet? Best curry EVER!! Was one of the highlights of my time there, along w/the interesting culture, amazing beaches and scenery, and all the strange things you can find in their vending machines. :D

No, and in the current system never will. Sadly. :(
It was obligatory a decade ago, but some twats (quote) "didn't like the idea that they had to follow orders". I truly hope they'll bring it back though.

Hoping to become a United States Marine when I graduate in 2015. It'll be harder because I'm a girl, but I've got the calling, and I know it's where God wants me to go.

Currently completing last bits of Tech School in the Cyber Transport field of the USAF. Six year contract, in an interesting, exciting job with high employability after I am out. Plus I kind of wanted to give back to my country, you know?

Signed up with the Air Force last year to serve 6 years, most of which will be served behind a desk on sparse weekends doing payroll with my finance department coworkers. Good deal that pays for college, and that's 85% of the reason I chose it. I honestly did not feel much pride or "joining something bigger and better than yourself"-feeling till about two months after joining. And my boot camp date is only two weeks away. Not that it's as vicious as the Marine or Army boot camp but still...boot camp.

Dad served in the Army, Grandpa in the Navy, great-grandpa in the Marines. 3 of my ancestors were brothers who fought in the Civil War. I'm also a descendant of Holy Roman Emperors and Kings of the Franks (but I digress).

But me? I have Asperger's, anxiety, and asthma. I'm like the end to my family's military history. XD

Asthma might be a problem, but I know a few who have made it. I guess what I'm saying is, it doesn't hurt to try, right? (I sound like a freaking recruiter... :P )

Really? Dang! You're even a more awesome person than I thought! :iconapplejackishappyplz: I don't really have a "military upbringing", but I still have a profound respect for the men and women who sacrifice not only their lives to protect our liberty and families. :salute:

Eh, not really my thing. My uncle is being in the Army until he's like 35 or something, and then he'll get a bunch of benefits when he goes to college to become a doctor. He's told me that joining the Army is very helpful. I might consider it in the future (it would certainly help me get into shape XD), but as for the moment I don't think so.

I believe most people are "pacifists." People generally avoid conflict and don't fight for the sake of fighting. However, we should always be willing to fight if there is no choice. There are very evil people out there. Sitting back, claiming "I'm a pacifist" and doing nothing only makes things worse. Although small, I'm glad there are people out there willing to go into harm's way so that people like you never have to.

When the dragon was about to hurt her friends, did Fluttershy be a pacifist and refuse to fight?

Fluttershy still knows how to stand up for herself against those who would attack her or her friends.
That's what we do. We defend our country. We defend you.
Point is, the people who want to kill us are not pacifists. They will kill you if they can, so we make sure that they can't.

No. Although I am suited almost perfectly for it. No. (I say almost because at times I get slight aggression points where I go after anything alive even if its my friends and if I snapped I could probably kill my team.)

I doubt you would kill your team.
When it comes down to it, when you are really in the crap, your team becomes your family. You will have aggression, but you will also have an outlet for it!

Served in the U.S. Army as an 11B (Infantryman). Went through airborne school right out of OSUT at Fort Benning. Got stationed in Alaska. I was injured in combat while in Afghanistan and was medical discharged for pretty much being useless. Now I'm disabled. Fun.
