Anyone here in the military?

I'm just asking, wanted to know if anyone here is in the military? And state whether you are air force, army, navy, marine, etc.

I'm not in the military (nor I think I'll ever be) but my father and relatives were in the army. It's a rule in South Korea that all males born in South Korea must take part of the army. Even if they are a US residence, they were born there.

Just to point out. ^_^

^ this is true. All Korean males must do a 2 year service... unless North Korea attacks, then they have to do a 10 year tour. It's funny when you come across the pop singers and movie stars who are doing their time. I've met the guy who played in Ninja Assassin just last year serving his time. Poor guys, having to serve for 2 years and only getting paid about $70-100/month.

Oh yeah, btw, I'm Army. Been in 4 years this month. Currently stationed in South Korea.

Yup completely true, I spent a year in South Korea back in 06-07. One of the army kids that got stationed there had to be part of ROK army. Also it is true all males in Korea must do 2 years minimum service in military. Korean military gets crap for pay and they treat lower ranks like crap. If you thought our military can be cruel go to a different country, Koreans can get the sh*t slapped out of them or hit with a cane and have to take it.

I am Air Force, been in 9 years now, not typical Air Force though. I don't work in an office/paper pusher or have to do anything with planes. I'm a vehicle mechanic, can pretty much fix any thing that can be driven lol. It's hard work with little credit but I love it

I haven't been in the military, but I'd like to thank you all for protecting your countries and dedicating time and effort to it in a way most people wouldn't. Thanks for being awesome
