Army soldier thread, things I been thinking about lately and why I'm glad it will all end soon (wall of text)
[Since I have some friends from work on here and such they can have a gander too.]

Here's the whole story on a couple different things:

1. 1SG [name removed] (previously a 1SG in the 1-506) completely lied to my 1SG at the time. 1SG [name removed] claimed to have "stripped of my rank" during my Article 15 proceeding for a missed appointment. That's an outright lie. Never happened. Even so much as the then BN CDR said "[name removed] I've never seen you in my office before so I'm giving you the benefit out of the doubt here Soldier. Straighten up and I'm giving you 14 days extra duty and 14 days restriction. We won't take any pay nor any rank. I think you can do better then this." After the Art 15 reading 1SG [name removed] told me "You're lucky it was me in there buster I would have taken your ass through the ringers." At that moment I remembered getting all tensed and wanted to throw the 1SG over the railing to the floor below. Just because. I mean it was a missed damn appointment. Seriously. WTF. However, when I deployed and learned from my 1SG, 1SG [name removed] that he had to take my rank because 1SG [name removed] told him he stripped away my rank when I got the Art. 15...it took all the restraint I had to not get pissed off...and I remained pissed off that entire week.

2. I personally managed hundreds of thousands of dollars of communications equipment for our company for more then 6 months. That's me, by myself, managing equipment, giving classes and ensuring the upkeep of the equipment including the monthly inventories with Command. All as a lower enlisted e3/e4. Even when I wasn't specifically signed for all the equipment...I still was in thought/theory because I was the only one in the commo office day in and day out. Now I'm back to being an E3 in the Army. Everyone still comes to me directly to task me out. They completely forget I have a sergeant again in charge of me. Then I'm expected to follow through with the bazillion orders because now *I HAVE KNOWLEDGE THE SHIT NEEDS TO GET DONE.* Well, here's my response "fuck off. I'm a private. I get paid to be a private. A private I shall be. Soon as I get the proper orders from the proper personnel then I will bat an eye to your requests."

3. The war with Iran. Well, it's sort of a guilty by tard thing for me. I have no doubt the "Big war" will happen and soon. I have no doubt it could escalate into a WW3. I have no doubt many, many US "interests" will probably get annihilated. Will I shed a tear? MAYBE. Depends on the person/circumstance. Will I do it because of US "interests" Oh hell no.

If you read all the above you realize I have nothing much to go on to "hate" or be "disgruntled" about since it's all mental shit. Talking to a counselor wouldn't fix anything (already did.) What's done is done. You played your cards and continue to. I'm just doing my job and going home at the end of the day. My interest in being the brightest and best communications soldier has completely dwindled. Nothing. I get disgusted to think I wanted to be a Communications Warrant Officer. In this Army? Oh hell no.

That, my friends, was what I have been thinknig about the last 6 months until my last ounce of caring went away. Rest assured, I will do my job...but that "care" is gone. Won't happen again. You fuck me once, your fault, you fuck me over twice, my fault.

[Transposed as an email and posting somewhere else but thought I'd maybe post it here for folks to chew on....]

Oh, yea for some reason it wasn't letting me post so I tried the test thing. Always works if there's a "screening" process going on for posts as there seems to be here on GLP.

Heh, but the software and bandwidth back and forth required to do such things would require services running on your pc and ping backs to somewhere...so they couldn't do that on port 80...I have a software and hardware firewall. Now as far as page layout...we all can view the source and realize that's not really happening here.

How the hell you make e3 in ait? Minimum 18 months...oh you were probably one of those brown nosed weasels who got a waiver. 'Nuff said.

I was an E4 who was going to get out as an E4 with 8 years in, finishing my obligation. I never wanted to "lead" and stuff as a sergeant. I wanted to do a job, be excellent at it and be required only to do the job. Then I realized I could be a WO and decided to try that route. Then this shit happened. Fuck that lol. Too many tangents in this equation that you can't control.

It doesn't matter how good you were at what you do; if you are insubordinate, that is more important. They would like for you to do your job well and make your appointments. Until you can do both consistently, you will not succeed in the military.

 Quoting: HANGFIRE


Volunteered only means I volunteered to do my MOS and obey the orders...volunteerism has its limits.

In the 1960s, Ivan Illich offered an analysis of the role of American volunteers in Mexico in his speech entitled, "To Hell With Good Intentions". His concerns, along with critics such as Paulo Freire and Edward Said, revolve around the notion of altruism as an extension of Christian missionary ideology and the sense of responsibility/obligation driving the concept of noblesse oblige, first developed by the French aristocracy as a moral duty derived from their wealth. Simply stated, these both propose the extension of power and authority over indigenous cultures around the world.
 Quoting: wikipedia


Correlated, it means you volunteering is used beyond its means.

If you volunteer to help someone the minute that additional task is done/implied the volunteering is over it becomes something else depending on the situation.

You volunteer to join the service, then it becomes a job...you are not again volunteering...but you get fcked over by the government by have working contracts of 3 or 4 or more years so I decided to take this additional time and re-enlisted to "get mines back" with the intention of getting my e4 and staying w/ it throughout while continuing to do my job/mos.
