Having trained in Aldershot we were told that only two things fall from the sky... Paratroopers and bird-droppings.

I signed the contract soon as I turned 17, I finished highschool and only had a 4 day summer vacation then went to Parris Island. MCMAP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MCMAP) is some tight stuff.

I learned three important things from the military.

1. Whatever you want make sure you get in writing. Words don't mean squat.

2. Always carry toilet paper, military facilities are notorious for not having it:)

3. You can make a sandwich out of anything, specially in boot.

As far as the Navy and Marine Corps... the Marine Corps is a department of the Navy, the men's department, j/k. I am in the only TRUELY integrated Navy/Marine Corps unit, a medical battalion. Trust me, it gets confusing as the Marine Corps places more responsibility on lower ranks than the Navy. E-3/E-4 in the Corps is when you start seeing some major leadership whereas you're looking at E-5/E-6 in the Navy. Right now there is a toss-up for Platoon Sergeant (a billet not a rank) in my unit and they're looking at either me or a good friend of mine... both of us are Lance Corporals (E-3). I've never hear of anything that big going to an E-3 in the Navy.

As far as Army vs Marines... my best friend is a ranger, currently selected for special forces and I can still kick his ass lol.

FNG, just wait until he gets done with the SF training. Remember that the USMC is the world's strongest advance ground force, whereas the the US Army is the world's largest and most diverse ground force.

*head hanging down* yeah... that will be the end of me...

Unless I somehow re-enlist with the MCMAP course guaranteed on my contract, THEN make it to BB. At that point I would consider him and I even. I can honestly say the ONLY people I have EVER been afraid of were MCMAP black belts... and carnies.

try 6 1/2 per mile. You want a 300 PT score so you are guaranteed your airborne slot.
