Well, I may not be as well known around here as Gauntlet, but like him I'm leaving to serve my country as well. On the 11th of December I will be leaving my cozy hometown of Maple Grove, Minnesota, to enjoy the warmth of sunny California. I'm heading to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, California for 13 weeks of fun and relaxation. No really it's probably going to be the toughest 13 weeks I will ever have in my life. I'm enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserve (for now anyway) and my MOS will be Ground Communications Repairer. Once I'm done with all my training and I'm on active reserve I'm hoping to get accepted into the officer program and go to school for Electrical Engineering since I already have a degree in Electronics.
Any Marines or former Marines out there know what I will go through in Boot Camp, and I'm sure that they want me to be treated just as bad (if not worse) than they were.
I've played Forgotten hope since .5 and have loved it ever since. I'm kind of sad that I'm probably going to be missing the release of FH2 but my country called and that comes first.
Have fun storming the castle!
:salute: to you brother and thank you. I still got two years before I can do my service.
Good luck from your northern ally. :beer:
Ooh-rah! Will be going to USMC OCS @ Quantico, VA after college myself. Want to be either an infantry or tank officer. Got some classmates that went through Paris Island, and it was quite a challenge, they said. But remember, it can't be nearly as bad as the old 'Corps ('a la "Full Metal Jacket"), Congress outlawed much of that years ago. Good for you, and might even serve along side you some day. Good luck, and Semper Fi!
I didn't make it!
mate i hope you enjoy yourself and i am very proud of you! i myself wanted to join but i cant cause of my asthmur (sp?):(
Yeah Minnesota FTW! (WTF is with this 5 degree weather and no snow, I'm jealous of you now going to California) You can join my friend when he goes off, he already got his letter of recomandation from Dayton, although seems like you're not going to do westpoint. Best of luck to ya anyway, stop by south MPLS let me drive some tanks around :).
am I the only who refused/didn't have to do any military service? oh, well in Sweden we don't have any military left so it's not so strange...
Best of luck :cya:
