    I know this guy, he throws like a girl, and now he says he wants to join the army. What are his chances? I know that you are not liked very much if you throw a granade like a girl. Would the army improve him?

    Tell him the Army doesn't use spears anymore and he doesn't have to worry about throwing anything, well maybe a grenade.

    So what if he currently throws like a girl? If he can pass the physical and entrance requirements at MEPS, he is able to complete boot camp.

    And...............you can bet your ass that he WILL know how to throw well after he graduates.

    Ladies, Ladies take a chill pill... :chillpill: It's been 40 years since I was in the Army but I really don't believe they are passing out to many Hand Grenades anymore... Isn't technology wonderful???

    Oh, yes! They still throw hand grenades.

    Depending on their MOS, they may never see a hand grenade again.
