I joined the Navy to be a Seal... that didnt work out. Now I'm a PH... I'm a sailor, but considering my job, I might as well be a Marine.
Oh and another thing.... right when we finished Battle Stations, my drill instructor quoted that same part when he saw my job "Military journalism?! Your not a writer, your a ****ing killer!"
Battle Stations (and intense overnight (like 72hours) field training of FTX simulated war - where our survival skills, shooting (22-guage shotguns, 9mm pistols) skills, and well as first aid, swimming,firefighting and other stuff they taught was all tested. It was a blast.
Military life is great most of the time.
