GUEST,josepp BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? (193* d) RE: BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? 28 Apr 12


Brooks!

People can make E-3 upon graduating from boot camp. I made E-4 (3rd class petty officer) just for graduating from A school--that was 7 months after I entered boot camp. I can't imagine being dumb enough to get married as an E-3. That's like getting married when you sweep floors for a living. Kind of stupid and short-sighted. As an E-3 you have a place to live that you cannot be kicked out of. You know where your next meal is coming from.

You can live easily on that pay. I did. But, sure, you get married and that makes it a while lot harder but should the military pay for your stupid decisions?
