what do u do in the Army? I am looking at joining in the next few months and am not sure what to do
I'll take this one. Realize when you join that there is not quick out. It will likely take you months to process out if you can't handle it or wash out in basic training. That being said, the military is a great career path for anyone without authority issues who has a drive to succeed and a wish to travel. (It might be Iraq, but hey, it's overseas) Your recruiter will tell you that all you have to be able to do is run a mile in 10 1/2 minutes, but this is untrue. To pass basic and move on to AIT as a female, you will need to run 2 miles in under 19 minutes, do 15 pushups, and 30 situps. There's a LOT of running in Basic and no smoking or caffeine, so wean yourself away from those habits before you go in. Most of the basic training bases that take women are in the south so if you join in the summer, be aware that you are going to be very uncomfortable. There are a lot of MOS career paths and you'll choose at the local MEPS which way you want to go after you complete the physical evaluation. Don't settle! Make sure you get an excellent signing bonus and money for a college education. Don't pick an empty MOS like parachute rigging that is largely useless in the outside world. If you need more help or have more questions for someone who's been there, contact me. I'm happy to help.
This is a question that you will have to answer for yourself. Personally I am a 25B you can learn more about the MOS from this website http://www.goarmy.com/JobCatList.do?red … ex&bl= although if I had it to do over I would have went Officer. The Army has programs available, that will pay for your college first and then upon graduation you begin your Army service time. This is deffinatly the way to go, as you will begin in a higher earnings bracket than you will ever acheive as an elisted soldier. I could go on and on, but deffinatly anything officer is the only way to go if you wish to serve in the US Army.
Here is a lot of great information that I doubt your recruiter bothered to inform you about. Sure they give you the site, but most are enlisted, thus they push the same poor fate on others.
One last thing, if you have the aptitude scores, never accept that they can not do it from the recruiting station. I walked out three times until I got from them what I wanted, NOT what THEY wanted for me.

I had a crazy idea pop into my head and it made me a little curious about what all of us Hubbers have bought online in the past few months or so. I guess that I'm wanting to find what our community's buying habits are like and how much stuff we actually buy online. So, if you have bought something...

I have read time and time again that earnings increase with a snowball effect after 3,4,5,6+ months on here. I sort of get that, but after taking my own experiences into consideration, I'm left with a few questions.I've read folks comments such as "it takes 6 month's for google to index and...

An editor reviewed this particular hub and decided that due to the fact that it has been extensively covered they could not get it on Toughnickel. To my surprise I found it doing well on the main site - HubPages.

What to do when you dislike a pet?I know it makes me sound horrible, but I very much dislike a dog my husband got a few months ago. I was okay with the idea of adding to our family. However after a couple months of training she has not improved at all (she's almost 3yrs). She chews up stuff, goes...
