considering Pokemon and the military don't really go together.
In the US you can't, unless you've been off it since your 13th birthday. Sorry to hear about your parents. A Major is an officer rank which has more responsibility and duties than enlisted person would have. Its something you have to devote your life to.Also you can't join the military if you're on pills for certain stuff? you can probably count me out based on that too.
Me neither but I still joined.i don't want to die so no.
also we have a smogon member, dormin, who is in the military and would phone his brother and tell him what moves to do in battles for tourneys.
Yup!oh yes another rachel mcadams avatar =DDDDDDDD
Oh shit really? Somebody told me I could enlist after going a full year without taking it. I'm 20 now XDIn the US you can't, unless you've been off it since your 13th birthday.
honestly if that's your attitude then there's about a couple much more important reasons why you're not cut out for it.I wanted to join the military since I was a kid but I'm not physically cut out for it.
I kind of figured this. To me joining the military was a pipe dream. I realize now that's the wrong way to look at it if you really want to do it.honestly if that's your attitude then there's about a couple much more important reasons why you're not cut out for it.
I had a friend that was excluded because he had dislocated his shoulder when he was 11 and couldn't find the paper work for it. So does that make the USMC fake? lolI tried to join like 3 times but apparently having a festering pile of shit where your knee is supposed to be is grounds for permanent exclusion (I know, right?).
But I'd say go for it. My best friend is a Marine (the REAL Marines, not the American version obv) and he's loving every second of it.

"Trainees are constantly in motion; constantly cold, hungry and wet. Mud is everywhere–it covers uniforms, hands and faces. Sand burns eyes and chafes raw skin. Medical personnel stand by for emergencies and then monitor the exhausted trainees. Sleep is fleeting–a mere three to four hours granted near the conclusion of the week. The trainees consume up to 7,000 calories a day and still lose weight."
Bullshit. In almost every single field in life, more training yields better results. Practice = Perfect.time spent training does not necessarily quantify results
I don't know what you're talking about and I suspect you may not either. It takes 30 MONTHS of training before a Navy Seal is ready for deployment.The Navy Seals four week training may not be as long, but its certainly as hard if not harder
Bingo, and to be fair, I didn't really think this through, thats the time frame to get the Seal badge.Bullshit. In almost every single field in life, more training yields better results. Practice = Perfect.

oh, and @ the bolded bit; if we're trading horror stories I have one! My aforementioned friend and 6 other lads in his troop were exposed to frostbite as a punishment. He now has an effusion injury in his fingertips that bothers him to this day and will never heal. I was like 'c'mon there's gotta be rules against that' but apparently anything goes during training. There was also plenty of stories regarding the staff pitting recruits against each other in a fist-fight seemingly as a form of entertainment for them. Brutal stuff, man.
Actually, Americans see Marines as pretty much the pinnacle of their fighting force as well, or at least around here they do. Maybe the SEALs are better, I wouldn't know, all I hear about is the Marines.i was just differentiating the two in my own obnoxious way because the US Marines and Royal Marines are really nothing alike in their overall function in their respective militarys. I imagine 'marine' would have very different connotations between our cultures. To you, they're your basic troops who train for 13 weeks. To us, they're the absolute best troops available outside of the Special Forces and undergo the longest infantry training program in the world at 32 weeks.
they're only the same in name, not in status. hence the comment...i mean no disrespect by it...i would never disrespect any serving soldiers (partially because i'd likely get my arse kicked :P)
well, the Navy SEALs aren't a part of the USMC, they're a part of, uh, the Navy.
