    I have a solution for your woes. Military! If you joined the Army, you could see your buddy Kevin more often (and earn hima $5000 referral bonus).

    You are pretty much guranteed a job, as long as you don't become a ****** bag. And you could retire at the age of 40! Plus it would make your Dad proud. He calls me son, what does he call you? :P

    Sorry to hear about your jobs. Did your boss go out of business?

    I want to be a helicopter pilot some day. Does the military have an opening for a pilot that is 6' 4" tall and 32 years old? I heard that I'm too old and too tall for that job. Plus, I'll probably just end up terrorist fodder in some jungle or desert somewhere anyhow.

    You're not too old, and I don't think you're too tall. You would enlist and put in a warrant officer packet.

    You need to do I believe 36 push ups, and 42 sit ups in two minutes, and run two miles in 17:42 to pass the pt standards.

    ETA: You would need to be accepted into the warrant officer program by the age of 33, but could get a waiver at 34.

    Sweet! I could pass the PT standards no problems. I'm skinny and tall with lean muscle mass. I do 40 push ups just to warm up for my workouts every other day at home, so I'm good to go. Maybe I'll sign up after my divorce is all settled out.

    Thanks.

(by the way, have you met the gunny? he worked at walmart in the sporting goods for awhile, then he got fired for talkin about guns... in the sporting goods section... hes now a minuteman! we have a meeting tomarrow at the state capital, anyone who wants to go, send me a PM before tomarrow and ill give ya a call and tell you where its at. rallying against the illegals [ no i will not be OCing lol ]

    I read something in the army times about the enlistment bonus actually being increased to the tune of about $40,000 so probably a decent time to get in.

    Hey! where's the love? Everybody wanting to get SGT extra money, but not for THX.

    At easeprivate, I found him first! If Kevin decides to enlist to become a Warrant Officer, you can collect on him. :P

    YES SGT! I think that the payoff is higher for WOs anyway.

    kev, would you get an enlistment bonus if i joined natl guard? what kind of requirements must they pass? (running, etc.) cause i dont think i can get my ass goin too fast LOL

    40k bonus aye...? very tempting... which brings me to my next subject in the same category...

    many states are seceeding from the nation, such as CA (this is a good thing for the most part) they are disagreeing with federal regs (many more states are seceeding) and since the government cant really control national guard (state regulated) i would love to be part of utahs guard. i was kind of wanting to be part of KY's guard, so i could be closer to alicia, but i dont know if i could transfer from UT to KY or anything like that. the states are becoming more independant, and UT can pretty much fend for itself... we have our own ammo distributor, guns, food, water, powerplants, what else do ya need? we even have nat. gas! were 100% self sufficient

    Sorry, I typed the wrong amount. It is $2000 per referral, not $5000.

    You can't refer someone to become a warrant officer, they have to become one. All of your referrals will be E-1 through E-4, and are all worth $2000.

    I know that the active army, guard, and reserve all have different programs, but they all pay $2000 per referral. I think there is one catch however, and I may be wrong. I am enrolled in ARRAP. (Army Reserve Recruiting Assistance Program) I have heard that I only get the bonus if my referral also becomes a reservist. So this may be true forthe guard and regular army.

    To remain on-topic, ifsomebody here wants to join the military, you get to open carry an M16! :P

    As far as the Army Physical Fitness Test is concerned, you would need to do a minimum of 42 push-ups in two minutes, 53 sit-ups in two minutes, and a 2-Mile run in 15:54 or faster.

    So you want Obama to be your boss, huh? All in the name of job security!

    Well, I was just "appointed" to set up the next meet by Packingmama when I was on a conference call with her and SGTJensen this morning.

    Having said that that I do believe that she volunteered together with me .

    I suggest March 21st. A saturday. Plenty of time to pecil that down in the calendar.

    Any suggestions of places to go. Yes, recession is a SOB so we will have to keep it toned down with the festivities. May..."crinch"...Golden Corrall??? Again ???

    Suggestions thisaway or I will just have to pick a place within the next week or so.

    It sure is, 15:54 is the 60 point time for the 2-mile run in the 17-21 year age group.

    That's not really something to worry about at this moment, I could only run it in 17:18 when I got to basic, but by the end I was able to run it in 15 flat.

    They'll make sure you can run.
