Re: Official Army recruiting/ Military Info thread

hi, i'm a singaporean and i'm going for my national service two years later. i'm interested in joining the us army but the recruiter said i have to be at least a us alien. is there anyway i can get this job by international employment? or must i have to apply for a green card?

after my national service, will i get to keep my rank if i joined the us army? thanks.

if you're interested why i'm keen to work for us army rather than working in my country, i can tell you why. i've lost sense of belonging in my country and although singapore is one of the safest country in the world. we are so condemned by the gov that it's like we have to follow every steps that they have created for us or we'll be lock up, you see what i mean?

you would have to become a legal citizen of the US to enlist in the Army. Also, you would not keep your current rank, as it is not a sister branch of service.

Well, I was in the Marines so I know at least that part. SEALs are special forces. Marines are a branch like the army or the navy. Marine boot camp will be tough, but alot of it is mental. The closest you aregonna get to special forces in the Marines is force recon, but you'll have to be in the infantry. You could also do pretty much any other job in the Marines,

Re: Official Army recruiting/ Military Info thread

Ok, I guess i will throw in and represent my service too.

United States Coast Guard
(Beleive it or not, we ARE military)

We use the Navy Ranking Scale (Seaman, Petty Officer, Chief)
MANY different job types; Search and Rescue, Law Enforcement, Aids to Navigation, Ice Breaking, ect.

There are many different ratings; Aviation Survival Technition, Aviation Matinence Technician, Boatswains Mate, Damage Control Technician, Electronics Technician, Food Services Specialist, Gunner's Mate (THE BEST RATING), Health Services Specialist, Machinery Technician, Marine Science Technician, Storekeeper, Yeoman. More information can be found here: http://www.gocoastguard.com/find-you...s-descriptions

I opted to go the Law Enforcement route so far in my career, so that of course is about the only thing that i can tell you about. I enlisted in 2003 and went to Coast Guard Boot camp in Cape May, NJ. Boot camp is 8 weeks long, and is physically and mentally demanding. Class is daily, test are frequent, and physical exertion is prevalent. Upon completion of "Recruit Basic Training," all members are advanced to the rank of E2, unless the member has worked out somthing with thier recruiting office to gain E3. The member is either given orders to the fleet or to class "A" school to learn a specific trade.

After Basic, I was sent to a search and rescue station in Baltimore, MD, Station Curtis Bay. The station's primary duties were search and rescue of stranded boaters, fire fighting duties, security details, and many other things. Some highlights of my career in Baltimore were an appearance in the begining of "Ladder 49," and "The Wire."

The Coast Guard is definately a multi-faceted orginization. We are overseas (in small numbers, albeit) and all along the coast. We are by far the smallest service, boasting less numbers than the NYPD, including reservists, we are only 46,000. That is not a lot considering that there is 350,000 miles of coastline between the continential United States, AK, HI, Guam, and Puerto Rico.

Now to the good part; the pay. As a member of the Armed Forces, you receive the same pay as all other services. The bonuses are not great, in fact they are damn right pathetic. For a six year contract, I received 4,000. Personel stationed on land (we do have ships, called "cutters," that do deploy and require members not married to live onboard that are single or below E4) receive Basic Allowance for Housing. This allowance varies depending on the duty location housing prices (Alabama is around 600 a month, I receive 2,725 for San Francisco). this will vary depending on marital status and rank.

I can't think of anything else, but feel free to PM for more info; there are also a couple of members in the Guard on here.

Also check out www.uscg.mil.

Good luck in whatever you choose,
Van

Re: Official Army recruiting/ Military Info thread

ah, blowing things up for a reason is fun, but I am more interested in the field of research and development... such as how to make bigger bombs, etc... I also have a love for electronics (I know, dangerous combo )

Re: Official Army recruiting/ Military Info thread

Hello all,

I am currently serving in the US Army. I have been for the past 5 years and have another 5 to go. I am a 25Q (Communications) and work in the S-6 shop. I went to Basic Training in Ft. Benning, GA and then headed towards Ft. Gordon, GA for AIT (Advanced Individual Training). From there I spent 4 years in Darmstadt, Germany serving with 32nd Signal Battalion. With this unit I deployed in 2003 to Iraq for a 12 month tour.

The once again deployed to Iraq with the same unit in 2005. Yet this deployment I did not do my Commo job. I served as a Gunner/Team Chief of a Gun Truck on a Convoy Team. At the beginning of 2007 I PCS'ed (Permanant Change of Station) to Ft. Campbell, KY, 5th Battalion of the 101st Aviation Brigade. At the end of 2007 I deployed once again to Afghanistan, which is where I am currently serving out a 15 month rotation.

Yes I have been deployed 3 times out of 5 years. Yes I grow tired of the Army at times, but as others stated it, everything is what you make of it. I have enjoyed my time in the service and continue to do so. I am in the best shape of my life compared to what I would have been while working fast food and never going out and exercising. The military life has changed me greatly. I used to be a timid shy person and now am more outgoing. Hell if I never joined, I wouldn't have met my girlfriend (who I am planning on asking to marry me as soon as we both return from Afghan). I have met many great people and made many friends through out my career.

The military can be a great thing, you just have to make it that way. Everything has thier ups and downs, but you are the one who determines on how far down you go. Most of those (not all, there are some that have just been screwed in general, but thats rare) who bad mouth the Army while they were in service, just didnt take control of their life. It is your career, grab the steering wheel and direct yourself where you want to go.

There is a program for Non-US citizens to join. After a certain amount of time in the service, you will gain US citizenship. I suggest you speak to a recruiter about that program.

And those of us who were deployed before that email came out, still have the 15 month rotation. That just affects those who are deploying after the email unfortunely. Trust me, we all looked it up as soon as we read the email.

If any of you are around Ft. Campbell when I return, look me up! Or hell, even if your passing through Kandahar, Afghanistan. I'll be here for another 10 months or so!
