    Why would the US invade? The US has troops helping Ukraine and has participated in exercises with the Ukraine military. Ukraine could even become part of NATO.

  • Is US Military MRE food, (Meal Ready to Eat) healthy?

    I've heard US Military MRE food doesn't need to be refrigerated for 5 or 6 years. Seems like that has a lot of chemicals, hormones, antibiotics etc.

  • Military UCMJ violations as a United States Army Reserve soldier?

    Last week, I was on order for my AT for 2 wks.

    Last week, I was on order for my AT for 2 wks. Long story short, my car was subjected to a search and naval base police found 0.7 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia such as my glass pipe, and my civilian service pistol in my trunk. Not that this matters, but I am legally able to carry my firearm as it is registered under my name and I have my exposed firearm permit. I was NOT aware of the rules and regulations of weapon on a military base, also I had completely forgot that my weapon was in my trunk as I leave all my work EQ in my trunk at all times so its a matter of me forgetting to leave it at home. All my civilian work EQ such as my uniform, handcuffs, duty belt, and etc was still all in my trunk as well so they knew it was my work gun. (Im a security officer for 2 employers). I was arrested and booked and later released to my CO and was dismissed from AT the next day and resumed back to TDP status as I still have to attend my BA every month and pass the UA for each drill. I am being charged with article 92-drug paraphernalia, art 112a- possession of marijuana, and art 134-posession of a handgun. I am extremely worried and do not know whats going to happen. I requested a army trial defense service and I am waiting for them to contact me next week. I am a PFC and I graduated AIT in November so again, Im not that familiar with military regulations. what can I expect from all this? please any help would be appreciated during this difficult time. Thank you.

    Best answer: Thank you for your service! That psychiatrist did not treat you right. If you don't feel comfortable with finding a different one, you have other options still. Both of my grandfathers served as well, and one of them found that a dog really put his mind at ease. Of course, getting a dog would not solved all your problems, but could help relieve a bit of it. They are a lot of work, but my grandfather loves having him around. Another option is to go to a support group in your area for people such as yourself who have served. A place where people understand what you went through and went through similar things firsthand. Do not feel ashamed for being in the military, please, I thank you for your service and all the things that you have done for your country.

  • Would it be better to enlist in the Air Force instead of the Army, and if so, why?

    I'm stuck between joining the Air Force and the Army. One person told me to join the Air Force instead of the Army, but didn't go into detail why the Air Force would be better. What are the differences aside from obviously the Air Force having airplanes?

    Is it really true that everybody in the Army on active duty, regardless of their MOS, deploys to the middle east? I get that if you're in the Army, you should expect to deploy over to Iraq or Afghanistan or Syria or Egypt or some other place in the middle east, because you are supposed to defend the country. I've talked to a lot of people who are like "yeah, you're in the Army, so you're going to deploy to the middle east because you're in the Army" But I've also met quite a few people who have been active duty in the Army for a few years who have said they've never deployed at all. One guy I know who is a cook in a MP unit told me he has a three year contract and has so far served two years but hasn't deployed at all. I don't know his whole story, but he doesn't appear to have any injuries that would make him non-deployable. Would this guy deploy in his third and last year of his contract? So is it really true that everybody in the Army on active duty, regardless of MOS, is guaranteed to deploy? I'm not saying that I have a problem deploying, but I'm just wondering why is it that so many people say it's guaranteed when I've met multiple people who've been in for multiple years who don't seem to have anything wrong with them who haven't done it.
