I just saw this video and felt like I was watching a multi-car accident on the interstate. It just got worse as it went on. What made it so bad as this was a SGT. The Safety was professional as he could be. Hats off to him. When I heard her say "I'm not Active Duty" I would have kicked her off the range. I am glad the Safety told her that she was a soldier and that he was a reservist too. If I was her CO I would have do everything I could to reduce her. But I think if you have a NCO like this in your unit the unit itself has a lot of issues in the first place. What kills me also is that she has a combat patch.

What would you have if you were the Safety?

Just so you know that you know it is believed that they Safety was a SSG just the same as was the soldier trying to load the mag.

I got 72 of sick in quarters for strep. I've been taking antibiotics so technically I'm not contagious anymore. I was wondering what the regulation for sick in quarters is. I'm having no luck finding out what I can and can not do. I want to work on my car in the parking lot and go to my girlfriends house later on. My CoC said that I already broke my quarters by going to get something to eat since I overslept and missed the dfac. I don't see how staying in this tiny room is going to help me get better. I should at least be able to go outside and do something productive. I'll be alone so I can't see the problem with working on my car. So again, what is the regulation that governs sick in quarters and what can I do and not do. I have 2 days left.

Example: I have a box of IPFU gear that I haven’t worn because it was an official uniform item. Now that the black APFU is the standard can the grey ones (IPFU) be worn at the gym?

There has been joking, especially as of late, regarding the legitimacy of some forms of study at universities. Personally, I believe that things live Sociology and Cultural Diversity courses are absolutely useless and, in fact, do nothing but allow for the perpetuation of assinine and unfounded beliefs (e.g. white privilege, systematic racism, diversity = better). Do you believe that there are areas of study that we would do well to rid ourselves of without hindering human development for the future?

I was discharged from the Marine corps in June of last year and given an re code 4 and fraudulent enlistment. During SOI I was sent to medical and diagnosed with a personality disorder and then processed out. After returning to civilian life I saw a counselor once and she said ij had no personality disorder or any mental health issues, told me to stop taking the medicine and that I only needed to co time to see her if I felt I needed to. I didn't and haven't seen her since. My question is how do I upgrade my status and change my character of service and re code in order to enlist and how likley is that to happen, with my o ly supporting proof coming from a civilian doctor?

Hello all,
I had some questions regarding the Army Reserve Components Achievement Medal. I'm promotable in June and I'm looking for points anywhere I can get them. The way I understand the ARCAM is it is awarded upon completion of 3 years of service with no disciplinary action being taken. Is that 3 years of service or 3 years with my current unit? I enlisted in November of 2010 but won't have served 3 years with my unit until January. Also, if I meet the eligibility requirements, is it still up to the commander's discretion to award it? Thanks for your help.

This Soldier was asked by two NCOs to fix his pants. The Soldier claimed to not be a Soldier, but he was at a military clothing looking to purchase the new PTs. He was very disrespectful and not receptive of the orders. What else would you suggest if he refuses to give his command's or his personal information?

I have an RE-3F for the Marine Corps. I was Kilo Company Platoon 3229 on T-day 56 I was dropped for Final CFT failure but passed two days later in PCP. Unfortunately when I found put my best friend died I was devastated and responded poorly to a marine, and Instead of the proper reply of Aye aye sir I have him a thumbs up and was processed for discharge. I left 3 week later from RSP. This was about 9 months ago since I've returned. My question is this. I've been working on a waiver with my Master Sargent and he's been taking a while to get news on my waiver but when I contacted the Commanding Officer at my MEPS station he said he would not approve of my waiver. Does that mean my whole waiver has been disapproved or does it continue on to others. Secondly if I moved to San Diego or Florida to enlist with a new recruiting district would I have a better chance to be approved versus where everyone else knows about me? Sorry for the long essay, but I like to be detailed for a solid wholesome answer?

Clarification: The question is about the impact on healthcare cost of routine barrage of threats that give rise to concern on the part of many citizens that their quality of life will be destroyed by discrimination sanctioned by a president who directly and indirectly sanctions discriminatory behaviors that would have been unthinkable under any president since slavery was abolished and women and minorities were granted right to vote. Fear of discriminatory acts is rampant.

The New PTSD: Post-Trump Stress Disorder
http://www.alternet.org/personal-health/new-ptsd-post-trump-stress-disorder

n.b. In spite of Trump's campaign promise to dismantle Obama's ACA - it would appear that he will retain most major portions of the ACA - including those portions guaranteeing coverage for previously uninsurable patients - and coverage for pre-existing conditions for otherwise insurable patients. The point of retaining these rather costly provisions of the ACA is to collect insurance premiums from patients whose care would otherwise fall to free government subsidized federal block grant supported community hospital / clinic care programs.

I go to meps in less than a week now, and I intend to enlist 37F. Is there anything I should be made aware of that I might not already know? Is the training realistically about a year long?

New E5 my first NCOER coming up in NOV, thinking about being a recruiter, i would just like insight on what its like what the selection process is, day to days, & the challenges face when applying to be a recruiter. I read the eligibility requirements and it states some where on there that SM must not have unsafe or reckless driving records, does that include speeding tickets? And is a no go?
