WHat branch of the military will you join..if you join? I am joining the Texas State Guard. It's a voluntary unit, so I do it all for free, because Texas is so cool. I have to train a minimum of one weekend a month, and a annual training period of three days. The state guard is called up in case of national diaster within the state, stopping riots, or helping direct traffic at major events. Also the state guard assits the national guard, which is a better trained version of the state guard.
United States Marines
cool now i know that atleast 2 other people on GF are from Texas!
Marine Helo Battalion or Army airborne...maybe volunteer for 101st
Well in Canada we have the Canadian Forces. Our Air Force, Army and Navy are all together as one branch.
I'm still considering joining...
United States Marines. I'm in MCJROTC (Junior Marine Corps Reserve Officer Training Corps) and when I graduate from High School, I'm going to MCROTC at University of Michigan.
Good Post, I am actually in the US Army Airborne. I am not part of the 101st as mentioned above though. The 82nd is in Fort Bragg, NC, Home of the Airborne. I have also worked with the USMC, I was assigned to them when the war first started in Iraq. They are a great branch as well. My brother is in the Air Force and he loves that too. I have a couple of friends from the Navy that I met in Airborne School. All in all what I am trying to say is that you cant make a wrong decision by joining the US Military. Sometimes it can be very hard work and very dangerous, but the rewards out weigh all of this. Most Americans appreciate what you do and they always let me know. So if anyone out there is thinking about joining the military feel free to ask me any questions. I will be able to answer more about the Army, but I will try questions for any branch.
