Dances In
« on: March 10, 2008, 10:00:24 PM »
Hello peeps. The name's Doc. Doc Holladay. Ha! Not! Teheee!
No, the name is Atriedes. Or simply Atri. Dont care. Call me whatever. I'm not really picky.
I'm 18, and I am waiting for myself to graduate High School that I do in May, and than I go to Boot Camp for the Navy August 11th. What can I say? I like the uniforms and the perty ships.

No, my job isn't going to be dealing with submarines, in that I am eternally grateful for.

No need to attempt to cancel. I can't. I'm 18 and I signed my name to a bunch of fancy contracts.

I was in the navy once...

Not the U.S. Navy though. I wasn't even on a boat. They put me in some mountain, watching the NATO communications. Mostly radio back then.

Nowadays I am a civilian, and as a civilian I greet you Atreides.

Psh, legal contracts aren't binding.  That's just another one of the lies your recruiter's been feeding you.  What job're you supposed to be doing?
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came.

Thank you, AG. As a matter of coincidence, that is very close to what I will be doing.

Eh, they are if they're made by the US Military. I will be a CTT, a cryptologic technician, which is I will be communications other than morse code and electronic counter measures.

Makes sense, since your communication skills are flawless, much like myselfs.

Welcome! And good luck in the Navy!

Cryptography, eh?

My job involved cryptography as well as radio communications. I was cleared for NATO top secret back then. Years and years ago now, though I am considering joining the army as a reserve in an anti terrorist unit. As a communications guy. That would roughly translate to a couple of weeks a year.

Dunno. You have fun though. The military is good for you, even if your body well tell you otherwise. ;) (Nooooo... Not pushups... not again!)

Well, I come from a long line of military in my family. My father is in the Marines and his father was in the Navy, and most of my uncles are in the military so it was only natural for me to join. Any advice you could give to me on my job?

Study hard!

Being top of class usually brings some benefits. Dunno your system, but here in the old world it sure did.

For me that meant I could spend my days in a NATO HQ rather than in a s**tty mud hole close to the Russian border. ;)

Plus I love to be able to brag about it! :p

Yes, thank you. I made a 96 on my ASVAB, and they first asked me to be in the Nuke field, however I declined. Their A-School is two years long in some tiny place in Missouri. While they do become automatic E-3 before even completing Boot Camp, I was looking for something a little less static.

LOL. That is related to my first question about the submarine. They wanted me to do nukes in a submarine. Promised all these bonuses and such but I could never see myself stuck on a boat for 6+ months at a time...let alone a submarine.

See ya. Air Force recruiter here I come!!

Eh, I had thought about joining the Air Force once I saw these hot chicks joining, but I realized I didn't have the eyesight nor the strength to withstand G forces on my body. So, Navy and stuck in a big metal tube with hundreds of guys for a month here I come!

1.  You strait up need to point me to some of these h4w7 chix0rz, cause I ain't seen none yet.
2.  Bad eyesight means they won't put you in a plane. :up:

You'd best get used to them, lad: they're all you have to eat at sea.  In the Navy, they only serve navy beans.  Now, eat up!
