Anger anger anger, you sound as though you have the maturity level of someone well below the age of someone able to buy alcohol even that of the law of consent. Who did I specifically call a coward, and how am I lying? Grow up just a little for the response please. lol

I have always wanted to fly a helicopter and have always wanted to serve this country as well. I figured I could do both by enlisiting in the reserves. Since I have a family and career I would not want to do it full time as our son is established with his school friends etc. and due to my ever building of clientel. But I do realize the possibility of being sent overseas for a period but I accept that.

A pilot in the USAR will NEVER be a predictable 2 weeks/yr, weekend/month relationship. You'd be a warrant officer, most likely. And you'd have at least 2 yrs of active duty before entering active reserve status.

Guess where your 2 yrs will be served, Tahiti? Uh, no.

You'll be in a war zone. During that time your cohort in business will continue to work and advance. If you currently are self-employed your clients will have found others since they need somebody and you are gone. Kiss your business goodbye.

If you work for somebody else then your employer is required to offer you your old job back, if it still exists. Chances are that the position will have disappeared and a new job description created that encompasses your previous job. proving that your employer did that to avoid the re-hire involves a lawyer and time.

Look, I served in the military 4 yrs straight enlistment and about a year in reserves. As a teenaged enlistee I had no family to support and was looking for somebody else to pay for my adventures overseas and also because I have a deep sense of duty to my country. I believed that the best way for me to fulfill that duty was through military service. If I could do it all over again, I would.

But I wouldn't sign-up if I had a family. To me, my first obligation will always be my wife and children. Doing right by them and raising productive responsible children is probably the best long-term contribution to America that you can make. Do it right and be repaid ten-thousand fold.

Sounds silly but, but I think it was a movie called Blue Thunder?? I am impressed with the ability to hover and do moves that a winged aircraft could never do. Too when I was in HS the Army paid a visit with a couple Cobras and other assault crafts and was impressed with its capabilitys.

I understand what you are saying and I thank you for your input. My family is my first obligation, but I have thought that giving too to my country would be great as well. Thank you too for the insight of becoming a pilot as well. I will still call the numbers I have on Monday but before I make any decision my family will be key to what I do.


And thank you for your service.

Why Don't we just let all the Fucking ASSHOLES out there all kill each other and then there just might be a real peaceful place to live better yet lets just Nuke the shit out of the entire world then there will be just us left to rot in our own shit? WAR SUCKS and So Do those that conduct such activity. We should stop supporting all thoses places that claim to be what they are not.

And Stop trying to be world Policeman trust me if we let em all wipe each other out or try to they will be so tied up trying to slit each other's throats that they will forget about us Not a fat chance since there is always some dumb ass who has to stick thier nose in other's problems and "fix" it for them.. Bush did not invade Iraq for any other reason than to clear Daddy's name and to get that mural off the floor of his daddy's face that everyone would step on ( to step on or strike the heel of your feet on one's face is a great insult there) Also it is not really Bush behind all the bullshit he is just a figure-head for the ones in the back ground that really are pulling the strings perhaps it could be Bush's fraternity ( Skull and Bones ) .......

I am Not Responsible for all the Above bullshit nor do I really believe in anything that I can't touch, Taste or Smell. and I still can smell what sat on my face last night Ha ha!

Would you consider being a foot soldier to serve our country instead? Not too sexy?
If you are filled with an honest sense of duty then you would accept a position even if it means that you would be spending your time skinning potatoes in the hull of a ship or spearheading a beach frontal attack. Do you have that in your guts before I as a tax payer feel comfortable handing you a multimillion dollar piece of equipment so YOU can feel good hovering and maneuvering sideways and shooting at turban heads.
Oh, I forgot, you have a business degree. Well why don't you serve us by working that degree in the service instead of your fantasy of flight. You already have skills that our government does not need to spend additional money to train you. Not too sexy? You prefer a cockpit than a desk or a trench? Or is it the ease with which you can actually kill that's so tempting?
Good luck!
