I knew a couple of guys that didn't drink...very few though. And even some of them changed their mind. you'll definitely get some YouTube moments, especially in cities you've never been to before

Is a max set the amount I am able to do? I also doubt I'll be that badass of a Marine to set a new record

I've just never wanted to drink or have any interest in it. Most of my friends and all my siblings drink. So its not like I haven't been exposed to it. I just have a different view on it. I hope I get to see cities outside of the US as well. That would be nice. Maybe we can golf with night vision goggles too.

You can do more than max if you want but it doesn't really matter. I would not expect to go into boot camp and get into great shape. I actually came out in worse and I tried hard during the pt times. Fact is the current military services aren't what they used to be.

max set=grab the bar and pull,
keep going til you do your last full rep,
then when you get to that one that's rel hard and you won't make it anyways, pull as hard as you can. (max out your effort) then lower yourself and set yourself back on the dirt.
the more you put in the more you get out of course.

if you don't leave the US, you are doing something wrong...well, okay, by the time you get in, it might be a little harder. deployments are cutting back just like recruitment, but, who knows what the future may hold...

very true. xept, boot camp fitness, I came out more fit. not buff, it was all cardio fitness, cause that was all we did. and, I mean, you eat so little you can't really get buff there...

Ah ok. Well my recruiter has never left the US in 5 years he has been in. He also has people who served under him and they never left either. While I would love to deploy I guess I won't be too hurt to not deploy.

haha, some people stay in the US,
nothing wrong with it,
but I mean, I had some friends who even left twice in their four/five years.
most people don't have time for that though, but you can extend if you like.

Could be one of the career recruiters. Half of me wishes I never left but the other half likes to brag about all the countries I've been too. I mean how many guys have gotten to watch a cobra and mongoose fight, or a ping pong show...

LOL Recruiting is a hard career field to be in in a good economy but good in a bad economy. Plus the bonus pay is good as well a additional clothing allowances.

The experience is what you make of it. + the travel can be good too.

Eh, to each his own. Hearse list is the only way I'd recruit. I'll agree about the experience being what you make it, I just hate sales jobs. Never been any good at it.

Thats why a bad economy is good. People are looking for jobs and signing up on their own. In a good economy you do have to do a lot of selling and spend a lot of man hours doing it.

My buddy has a 1 a month quota right now and he gets over 30 people applying each month.

Finance, supply and contracting are great fields to get into.

That's not a bad quota at all. Extra money and an easy job~ sounds like a good life.

08: Hong Kong(left early to render aid to Phillipines), Guam, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Dubai (Jebel Ali), Singapore I think that's it other than stateside places
09: Singapore, Thailand, Dubai
10: RimPac (filmed battleship) Canada and Hawaii for 4 weeks
11: Left in January came back for a week I believe left late January did some operational reactor things, went to pull in to South Korea maybe 12 hours before port call earthquake hit so we went balls to the wall to render aid to Japan, participated in Operation Tomodachi and then I believe it was April we hit up Japan. Then Thailand, Bahrain, went to pull into Dubai and decided to go fight Somalian Pirates because the ship that was fighting them had been doing it for 55 straight days I believe we had been out for 57 straight days numbers might be off I know we'd been out a couple to few more days (so we got beer day number 2), Hong Kong, then Guam, back to stateside.
