Given the sheer size of the Army you would expect there to be more soldiers on RallyPoint than other service members. My very unscientific opinions from using RallyPoint daily for the last few weeks seem to show the Army grossly overrepresented though!

I'm especially interested in hearing from Air Force/Navy/Marine/Coast Guard on this one. Have you tried to get people in your service to sign up and use RallyPoint?

Is the over penetration of Army users just due to them having too many people and could be used as additional justification for their upcoming personnel cuts (i'm kidding! sort of)?

Most of the Air Force I have spoken with about RP, or invited, don't seem interested because there isn't a tangible benefit for them right now. RallyPoint can't really help much with Air Force assignments, and there are other message boards that have more Air Force users if they want to ask a question.

Because the Air Force doesn't salute, the Navy doesn't have Fox Holes, and the Marines don't have overweight Soldiers to discriminate against.

For those who missed it, that was a play on the popular topics.

The Air Force still PT tests on a bicycle and gets paid extra to stay on an Army post as well. These are all facts that are known to every Soldier.

MSgt (Join to see) That is EXACTLY what my recruiter said to me... "If you get stationed on an Army or Navy base, they'll pay you a quality of life allowance." lol.

The sarcastic response would be "Because the Navy's busy deploying and we don't use bandwidth for Rallypoint" ;)

Sir, I was thinking the Navy starts its version of RP, and we'd call it GQ. But then we might be in copyright violation with magazine. Any suggestions?

I think you're onto something PO1 (Join to see). We should make it low bandwidth so it could be used underway :)
