Time For A New Military Branch?

Time For A New Military Branch? Topic: Review of an economic article
July 23, 2019 / By Michaela
Question: I was discussing politics with a friend of mine who studies the Iraq war very very closely. He believes that our current military is not designed for this type of war we are fighting, and that a new branch of (military/goverment body) should be established. This (miltary/goverment body) would be responsible for developing and maintaining economic growth in new goverments IE Iraq for stable progression of societys, until they can walk on their own. Please review this video before posting it will give you more insight on the war. http://www.charlierose.com/search?q=Davi... or the article: http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/10/08/a... What are you thoughts on this? http://www.charlierose.com/shows/2007/10... Better link PLEASE LOOK AT THE VIDEO BEFORE POSTING! I don't think any of you understand the question, primarily because you didn't watch the video as I requested. Its is not exactly a military branch... but a similar government body with no fighting skills/weapons what so ever. Specifically designed for training people of other nations to govern their people economically and efficiently... It's sad that you are all to lazy even watch a political video and provide any constructive criticism. Thanks anyway. BTW: For the ignorant comment about "sitting around star bucks living off mommy and daddy, and complaining about life" is bullshit, I'm an adult, who provides for myself in every aspect, and yes I do go to college. I'm not complaining about anything life's great. I don't live off mommy and daddy, so perhaps before you go assuming you should think before you speak.

united states of america of america Air tension by ability of far is the ultimate protection tension branch to connect. the final criteria are the utmost and how of existence is plenty extra effectual. the universal of your education would be plenty extra effectual, the nutrients is served out of a "eating" corridor, no longer a "mess" or "chow" corridor and the barracks, referred to as dorms interior the AF, are plenty nicer, than different branches. I spent approximately 8 years interior the AF and enjoyed it! a number of my education, replaced into on military bases and that i've got the utmost appreciate for the army, however the AF is extra ideal, the two short and long term.

Letty Originally Answered: What branch of the military should I join?
Alright first i'd like to say congrats on wanting to join the service and better yourself. I have plenty of experience and much of it from the school of hard knocks. I nearly joined the Marines originally a 17 and they were not supportive so I couldn't get the waiver signed. I'm thankful for that much now. The recruiters wouldn't allow me to pick a guaranteed job and either wouldn't give me straight answers, or told me obvious BS. By the time I could make the choice on my own I wasn't interested mostly due to the lack of honesty. I was interested in traveling the world and learning a trade and knew the Marines weren't fond of sailors. So I said what the hell and joined the navy. Well that had its ups and downs but as I was in, I discovered many things about the Air Force I wish I had known. the living conditions are far better, they get paid extra if they have to live in what the rest of us consider nice housing. They have the shortest deployments (3 months usually) they are the most relaxed with regulations comparatively, The physical aspect is nearly non existent, The food is great, and they have great gyms and other facilities. Much of their funding goes towards morale for the people. They provide the most technical training and treat their people pretty well. It would have been a good choice but I didn't do my homework until it was too late. They do not accept prior service for the most part. I looked into the Army to see what was up after my tour was up. They offered bonuses which the marines rarely ever do. Mine was 10K and I knew some with 30K enlistment bonuses. They are much better funded. The marines get the left over crap from the Navy. They deserve more but they money just isn't there. Their living conditions aren't near as good nor is their equipment. I'm using an M-4 Carbine and I have a bipod attachment with an ACOG scope on my rifle. My gear was all brand new. Promotion is much faster because there are more billets. You can make E-5 in the time it takes most marines to make E-4 if they get it at all. There are lots of training schools you can attend like jump school where it's nearly impossible in the marines. They deploy for 12-15 months at a time which means more money. They highly encourage you to take civilian education courses and it helps towards promotion. These are just some of the things off the top of my head. I've worked with all branches of service and the marine hype is just what it is. I respect them but they are not a cut above soldiers. I go on 6 mile runs, do ruck marches with over 100lbs of gear, regularly train and go to the rifle ranges plus do my MOS. The Marines do not do all of the fighting while the Army stays back and other horseshit i've heard. I'm not trying to have a bash the Marines session and I respect them but I think the truth needs to be out there for you. I can direct you to a blog of countless marines that hated their experience. The Air Force has the highest retention rate of all branches and has so for the longest time. I don't know how true this is (which I believe it) but alot of the female marines talk of a glass ceiling compared to their male counterparts in the marines. Promotion is already tough too because there are limited billets.

I ain't gotta look at no video to explain the new Military Branch. It called Southern Style Revenge. We take care of our family, neighbors and country men. Trust me as long as we can bear arms in the South. We're protected down here. Maybe you need to take care of the Yankee cowards though.

I don't need to view the video to know that we do not need another Military Branch. We have all bases covered. The only things that need changed are: 1)Keep politicians out of war fighting - not their job, they don't know what they are doing. Fighting is for soldiers, not lawyers! 2)Control the media, too much anti American & anti Military coverage. When the military is allowed to do its job, it does just fine. We will tell you what happened and why.

Here's how I tell people to look at it: Each branch of service has a different mission: The Army rules the ground; the Air Force rules the air; the Navy rules the sea; and the Marines...well, God bless them. First in, last out, roughest mission... Now, because each service's mission is different, each one has a different personality, so to speak, and you might find that your personality is a better fit for one over the other. The Army has a physical mission, whereas the Air Force and Navy have more technical missions, etc. Because of this, the army enlisted soldier's quality of life tends to be a bit lower than that of the other services. Given what you've written here, here is my best advice: Don't go active, but rather join the Air National Guard. That way you won't have to uproot your family. If you find that you really enjoy the lifestyle, you can go active pretty easily from the national guard. But once you're active, they own you! But first, talk to the recruiters!
