First off, I don't recall twisting your arm to get you to post here, I merely suggested it. But worrying about "should have"s, "What If"s, and "Could have been"s is just going to make your miserable. You should make the decision of your own volition, and your parents have to accept that. Your 19 dude, make your desision, your parents can't stop you, and you shouldn't let them stop you. Also, if they dislike the idea of you joining the marines so much, but you still want to join the military. The is also the Coast Guard and the Air Force. In the CG only volunteers are likely to see combat, and I doubt you see combat in the AF if you arn't a pilot, not really sure on that second one.

Four more days, just finished the last of the paperwork I needed before tuesday, and I will be able to pass the pushups and situps without too much trouble, the swim should be fairly easy too (I think I was a fish in a past life), my biggest concern is the run, as I am making good progress with the pullups. But my run times and stamina havn't really improved much over the last two months. Just hope that I will have an easier time with more people running... and that really inspiring sound of my Company Commander screaming at me the entire time.

*You follow the group of guerillas for almost an hour before you come to their camp, about twenty tents concealed by thick undergrowth. All of the equipment looks like it has been used for some time, and the tents are faded, and torn in places. They take you to a pit, and two men lift the wooden bars, obviously some sort of holding cell.*

Get in. We'll let you out once we are sure who you are.

*Greg watches as the men leave, only two left to watch over the cell, their backs to it. When he is sure noone is paying them any attention, he turns back to Andraele and lays a hand on his chest, he closes his eyes, and a moment later, Andraele's wounds begin to close up. It is several moments later before Andraele is coherent. He looks around, confused as to where he is.*

THREE MORE DAYS! Yeah, I am joining more for the technical training, and less for the PT. I never liked physical activity, so that part is not going to be fun no matter how hard I try to make it fun.

OOC: It's alright, this will be my last post on this thread until around Christmas, since I will be at Boot Camp. So Amudaus I think you will need to push the pause button since there are only three of us in it now that TriggerHappy left.

Ok. We need to find out who he went to see. That means, we go to Washington... Though I have no idea how we are going to get there. The three of us do look somewhat suspicious.

OOC: Just to let you know, this will be my last post until around Christmas. When I get back from basic, I will PM you guys that I am going to try and start it back up. I hope you will all want to return, I will also see if I can get Triggerhappy to come back. Sorry for making you guys have to take a break from it. To the Admins and Moderators, please keep this thread open, as I am not done with it yet. Thank you for your patience.

We can't stay here. The Shadow Knights will find us before too long, and these people would get caught up in a battle they arn't capable of fighting.

Posted on 11-22-07 01:00 PM, in Happy Thanksgiving from Boot Camp (and a quick update for those that care) Link
As many of you know, I am in Boot Camp right now. All of the recruits recieved off base liberty for the day and were picked up by local families to spend thanksgiving in a more relaxed environment, and give us a chance to relax and regain our focus. The family I am with was kind enough to let me use their phone and computer. To anyone who may be wondering how I am doing, I am doing better than I had expected. I am through 4 of 8 weeks. On the basic pistol marksmanship course (Keep in mind that the Coast Guard has the hardest basic course of all of the branches) I scored 117 of a possible 150which was three points over what I needed to be qualified with a pistol (meaning I am qualified to use a SIG P229R DAK PDW should I choose to volunteer for boarding parties when I get out into the fleet), and enough people in my company qualified to win us the black marksmanship pennant for our Guidon, making us the first company to win it since February. Only one person in my company won the Coast Guard Expert Pistol Shot Medal, I think he had a 148. Unfortunately while the second half of my company was out at the range shooting (we had split into two groups due to the schedule being messed up with thanksgiving) the first half which had already shot was screwing around and have brought the wrath of my Company Commanders down upon the entire company. We lost nine people in two days. I failed the push-ups and run on my PF test, but I passed the Sit-ups, so I need to get up at 0400 every morning for remedial PF until I pass it.

I have rambled on long enough for now, so HAPPY THANKSGIVING XEOGAMING!

What I meant when I said we have the hardest basic course, was that the United States Coast Guard has the hardest basic pistol marksmanship course of all branches of the military because they lack the funding of the other branches, and when you are fighting on SHIPS you don't have the luxery of just blasting bullets left and right, you need to be able to hit your target the first time, every time, without damaging the ship, especially when that ship is carrying fuel or explosives. The basic course is shot at 25 yards, which is 10 yards farther than the basic pistol courses for the other branches. The Instructers at the range were ex-Marines and Air Force, and they could ace their respective pistol courses blindfolded, and neither qualified on the Coast Guard basic pistol course when they shot it when they came through boot camp. Every shot I fired with the exception of one was a kill shot, and that last one would have incapacitated my target And the Coast Guard does get deployed, there are several cutters patroling the Persian Gulf, why you may ask. BECAUSE THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD IS THE ONLY BRANCH OF THE MILITARY THAT IS AUTHORIZED TO BOARD CIVILIAN VESSELS IN INTERNATIONAL AND FORIEGN WATERS. I joined the Coast Guard for the job training. If I could, I would love to do a tour in Iraq, but the don't send anyone there who has less than three years of experience, and there is a waiting list with several hundred people who want to go. Combat positions like that are volunteer only. And while Coast Guard Boot Camp is less physically intensive, it is the most Psycologically intensive, they don't care if you can do forty million pushups, your on a ship and that kind of strength means absolutely nothing there, they want to know that you will not break under stressful conditions like, I don't know, Driving a boat through a Fucking Huricane or something. The Navy pulls into port for Hurricanes, they don't sail through them. The Coast Guard has smaller ships, and we still go out, we still fly, and we still do our jobs. The Army and the Marines are able to go fight on the front lines in places like Iraq BECAUSE the Coast Guard is here to help protect our shores. While our job is less well defined we serve many purposes: Search and Rescue, Port Security, Drug Interdiction, we enforce immigration laws, We enforce fishing regulation laws, envirnmental protection laws, maritime safety laws, in addition to our work in the Persian Gulf. And we do it with approximately 90000 men and women (both reserve and active duty)... the army puts over 150000 recruits through basic training in a year.

The next time you decide to pass judgment on the U.S. Coast Guard, consider the fact that in an average day, we do more than the Army with a fraction of the manpower. And Jexim, I take offense to your comments degrading the Coast Guard, my grandfather IS A RETIRED a Coast Guardsman, my father IS a Coast Guardsman, and I AM a Coast Guardsman. The Coast Guard is in my blood. I was destined to come here at some point. It has become a family tradition. And knowing you, I doubt you could grow the self discipline necessary to graduate from basic.

Spartan, I don't know what you seem to think I did to Sam, but we just lost touch with each other, we started hanging out with different groups, and we grew apart, that is all there is to it.

Thanks Nagis, its nice to know that somebody has respect for the Coast Guard. I have always had respect for the military, and it wasn't until recently that I decided to join. And I think I can handle his internet Kung Fu.

I am thankful for the U.S. Coast Guard, for giving me the career I will now be living. If it was not for the Coast Guard, my Grandfather would never have met my grandmother, which means that I would not be here to serve in this fine branch of the military now.

Jexim when you insult the Coast Guard, you not only insult every member of the United States Coast Guard, but you also insult every member of the United States Marine Corps. The bond between the two is strong, forged over many years, and we look out for each other. Marines have come up to my dad at gas stations while pumping gas and told him thank you for everything the Coast Guard has done. We earned the respect of America's most elite fighting force on the battlefield, because the men the Coast Guard has sent into battle have risked their lives many times to get the marines onto and off of enemy beach heads.

Let me tell you a little story:
Only one member of the USCG has ever won the Medal of Honor. That was Signalman First Class Douglas Albert Munro, Coxswain of a group of 24 Higgins Boats. He dropped a group of Marines on the beaches of Guadal Canal, the marines were pinned on the beach, and the navy was about to drop shells on that same beach. The Navy ordered Munro to bring his boats back to the fleet. Munro knew that those marines were going to die if nothing was done, and he made the decision to go back and get them off the beach. Japanese reiforcements were bearing down on the Marines when Munro and his Higgins Boats arrived. He took his boat, and placed it as a shield between the Japanese and the Marines, using the two small machine guns to hold back the Japanese while the other boats loaded up the survivors on the beach. Near the end of the battle, Munro was hit by a Japanese machine gun, and was mortally wounded. His dying words were, "Did they all get out?" Because of him, every marine that was on that beach alive and dead both, were evacuated from that beach. So before anyone says that the Coast Guard does not engage in combat, think about this, this is just one of the more famous stories of the United States Coast Guard. Munro was an ordinary man, from an ordinary town, who did something extrodinary. When you degrade the Coast Guard, you belittle what he has done, and that is an insult to him, to the people who were there, the people who he saved, and the people that have followed in their footsteps. Don't ever say that the Coast Guard is little more than Rentacop service with boats, The United States Coast Guard is a proud service with a proud history, and people who are proud to serve in it. Always remember that.

Well, it is about time for me to go, so I won't see anything after this post until christmas.

I wake up here sometimes from nightmares with my CC's. I had one that I was at my A school, and I was on a date, and out of no where, Petty Officer Durrant (The Compant Commander I feared the most between my three) jumps out and tells me to push the deck. I woke up going "O CRAP!" and bolted up so fast I hit my head on the bottom of the my Rack-mate's rack. Then I have this light shined in my face and I'm being told I have watch.
