This thread is to discuss the various military elements we have, from all countries. I'd like to start it off by asking how many of us are, or were, military members? Why'd you join up, and ask you to share some of your experiences with the community. I hope I placed this thread in the correct forum. If not, I appologize.

Stick with it. I assume you're a member of Kitty Air Hawk Society? Oh, Army here. Always wanted to be a ground pounder. Plus both my parents are Air Force, so I had to rebel! Hoo-yah!

Well I am. My first military experience were a forced one, since military service is mandatory in Sweden. I did one year of very intence military service (remember that we have to learn the same thing in one year that you from the US for example learn in several years). When I was done, I saw that they were looking for soldiers who would consider joining the "foreign-forces". After seeing how much money, those guys made. I decided to join up. About 2 weeks after my military service was over, I got a letter saying that I was going to get shipped out to Kosovo, and take part in KFOR, and maintain the peace down there. The peace were fairly new, so it was still, very much indeed, a hotzone when I arrived. I spent 6 month in Kosovo, and saw things I wish no one will ever have to see. Dodging for bullets that you have no idea from what direction they are coming from, isn't very plessant either.

If you want to actually fly planes, make sure you're an OFFICER. Go through ROTC via the Montgomery GI bill

I am currently enlisted in the Ohio Military Reserve (though the state legislature is in the process of a resolution that would, among other things, change our name to the Ohio State Guard. I think it sounds alot more descriptive). I signed up to serve my state and my country, and to get some training and experience. I am currently halfway through my enlistment, I don't plan on re-upping when my time is up. Instead, I'm going to sign up for a stint in the Marine Corps. P.S.: Hey Knippschild! I was wondering if you could tell if the Marine MPs are the ones who guard the embassies?
