He slept with the instructor, didn't he?
He's to dumb to know how to get out of his pants without help.
So slept with the instructor without realising that he did it?
Nope. His mother slept with her brother
I meant to become a marine he slept with the instructor.
You do not need smarts or anything else to pass. The US "needs" soldiers, and if you are willing, you will get a job.
I'm under the impression Marines are more elite soldiers, and thus intelligence is needed.
not marines. regular < marines < rangers < seals? I think thats how it works, atleast up to rangers. It doesnt really matter because the sas is at the top regardless.
So, they are technically more elite soldier.
To me, soldier is the lowest rank - cannon fodder. Marines is above that.
Four branches of US Military:
Army - Ground forces - tanks, artillery, etc...
Air Force - Air coverage - bombers, fighters, spy planes, refueling, cargo, etc...
Navy - Ships and Planes - aircraft carriers, submarines, cruisers, frigates, destroyers, also - fighter planes, bombers, and cargo planes.
Marines - ground troops for the Navy. The Navy (and the Marines) do the jobs of the Navy, Army, and Air Force.
Within each branch of service, there are "Special forces" groups like the SEALS (Navy), Rangers (Army), etc. (There are more than one special forces group within each branch.)
Lastly - "Soldier" is a generic term for anyone who is in the Army that is occasionally applied to the Marines also.
Also, the best branch of the US Military is undoubtedly the US Navy. Thanks.
To me; Soldier = ground force, lowest rank. AKA cannon fodder
Not exactly...there are different special forces for each branch...too many to count. I've heard so many things about who is more elite, it's hard to keep track of. One thing I do remember is that Air Force SpecOps Search and Rescure are one of the baddest of the badasses. Also, the US doesn't have an SAS.
Here's a link to more information than any of you care about.
Anyone can go into basically any branch...how smart you are dictates what job you get once you're in. This guy is probably going to be infantry. I think he'll flourish there.
The intelligence needed to get into any branch of the US military is extremely low. It is very difficult to not meet the minimum requirement to get in. Also, the marines have the second LOWEST minimum score, one point above the army.
It's when becoming the technical side/advancing up ranks when you need some intelligence.
I think he's just drunk.
I believe it. My dad works giving physicals to recruits at the Houston MEPS, and some of the people there are stupid as posts. I fear for the future of my country.
*I will, *every, *body's, *said, *I, *dumb.
Confused...the test is to decide if you're "dumn" enough to not be a great loss when shot in the head? So the Marines are like a method of pro-active gene pool improvement...
His "intelligence" seems perfect for the marines!
Apparently if you get negative on an IQ test, you get a free pass out of everything.
