A scare

I got a scare about a week ago, my recruiting officer sent me a letter saying that my services could be needed overseas again, I was think "All this stuff I've been working on over here, all this that I have been trying to build, my family, all gone in the blink of an eye" I called him yesterday and he told me that I probably won't get called out because I've already been out twice, what a relief, it scared the crap out of me, still does, well, it doesn't really scare me, for a while there I was getting used to it, it's much uncomfortable then living over here but it wasn't that major, what it does to me is it makes me feel like I'm being used, one of these days they might send me over to iraq or afghanistan, that will be nothing like libya, it'll be like being a crack dealer in a drug bust, I'll probably do something crazy to get out of it, well, anyways, my point, umm, my point is that don't start something like a life in the armed forces if you aren't willing to take the chances involved, I did, I thought "Oh, I'll spend six months in boot camp, a couple months on base and be out with mad money, I was called over before I even got to go home on my first leave, it sucked, I was scared then, but once I got on the ship and everyone was partying and talking about killing arabs and shit, I loosened up, I practiced every card game in existence until I was practically unbeatable, and then I just lived in the desert for a while, no biggee, ok, that's enough for me....

It would be an honor to fight for your country and end all this nonsense....but then again you have a family. Its better to be there for your family than going to war.
My mother was called too....she will be a flight medic..... afterall she is in the medical field, so it makes sense....anyways, they may send here to Isreal......but then again it may be Pakistan- like they said before.
But damn people keep changing her location. As much as I hate her, sometimes...I hope she returns to her family safely... after all my little brother and sister still need her.

My brother, who just got out of the Army, was stationed in Kuwait for 6 months or so. His old buddies in his platoon are the ones guarding the terrorists prisoners in Afganistan right now. Just thought i would say that.

it's a good thing that you won't have to go, silk. that's the main reason i'll never join the military... well that and the mind control, lack of choices, shitty food, chance of dying, lack of sleep, chance of being disabled, the men's showers, shitting next to my friends everyday... yeah, you get the idea.

In finland every man is technically in the army and since we've been at war with russia for the past 300 or so years you can be called up at anytime to patrol the 'contested ground' or in geographical terms 9/10 of the country.

I got called up last year but fortunatley as im not of finish birth only half i cant be forceibly called up to man a post in Rejakivik

Every Israeli citizen is required by law to be in the Army. Be glad we have the choice in America.

That doesn't work in Finland they'll drag you out kicking and screaming give you a rifle and some winter camoflage and stick you on the border to freeze your ass off for six months. Waiting for another russian patrol to destroy in return for the deaths of some villagers in the borders.

Did i also mention you don't get paid?

My mother while heavily pregnant with me had to work in a factory to be able to survive while my father was dragged off it was either that or 6 years in prison for desertion.

I know butthats what happens over there.

The 'Proffessional' soldiers are put in barracks all year in the few towns and cities and spend their days parusing the red light districts. Go down a red light district in helsinki and there'll be armoured personel carriers parked in the street and the soldiers getting ahem acquainted with some lovely looking finish girls.
