This thread is for conservatives, to show there is still hope in the youth of today. This thread is for liberals, to show there is still American youths who wish to fight and shed blood for America, no matter how much you wish to deny it. Almost every night I do internet research, looking at different MOS's and reading reports of battles past and present of all branches of the military. I try to learn about armored warfare, artillery strategy, infantry tactics, and all things the like. I'm a Chief Master Sergeant in the Civil Air Patrol. Usually, I'm surrounded by hard-charging young men like myself. I have an itch that I can't scratch listening to teachers drone on in a classroom or other teenagers complain about things. Bowling on saturday nights just doesnt do it for me. This itch can only be scratched by buttoning up a uniform, lacing a pair of boots, and racking the charging handle on an M16. There's nothing I want to do more.
