Is this how C-17s are born?

thedogtagchronicles can you shed some light on this?  I wasn’t airborne, so I can’t really answer.

Looks like a C-5 eating a snack.

Honestly anything at this point.

How about why you joined?

In the future, if you are ever bored you can write for DTC. We try to get a lot of different viewpoints.

Well I guess I’ve kinda always been a navy brat at least or the first few years of life, but I grew up around a lot of military like things like air shows and watching tv with my dad during desert storm and such. So I kinda grew up wanting to be in the military. So wen I got older I tried out college because my parents wanted me too, but it wasn’t for me and like I said I had always wanted to be in the service but I just couldn’t settle down on the idea to do it. So when I told my parents I didn’t want to go to school anymore they told me I had a month to move out which sucked because I hadn’t really been working and had no money. So that was kinda like the push I needed and 3 weeks later I was gone for boot camp. I have never regretted my decision to join or to even stay in.

That’s cool. I had already been kicked out when I decided to join. I grew up the opposite, in a super hippie/liberal family. I wasn’t allowed to play with toy guns and had to sneak GI Joes into my room.

I was sitting in my room one night trying to decide what to do with my life and the next day a Navy recruiter handed me his card. I thought I would check it out. I kicked ass on the ASVAB but at the last minute there was a paperwork problem. I don’t know if he ever got it sorted but some Army recruiters saw me at work and were impressed with my scores. I ended up joining. I never regretted my decision to join, even reenlisted, but the Army wasn’t for guys like me anymore so I got out. Things are pretty good now.

I’m so damn bored… Someone talk to me!

How much life sucks

You might want to talk to the OP because my life is pretty good right now. Used the GI Bill to get my degree. Now I have the best (and highest paying) job I have had a civilian that did not require me to be in a foreign land. So things are pretty good. Sorry they suck for you but hang in there. I have had more than my fair share of sucky times.

Old School. One of the last rotations before they closed down Panama. It was actually pretty awesome. My team was the only team to get all the points in Land Nav in the platoon despite having the LT with us. Good times.

Don’t laugh, that last one is real. She said she got PTS from twitter comments and claims it is equal to getting PTS from combat.

This is how progress is made. It is a step forward, maybe not a giant leap. So far it looks like a gender neutral standard so if any woman passes it will be legit and worthy of respect.

I don’t know if any will pass. It is important to remember that guys in the best shape of their life fail the course. The question isn’t “can any woman pass the course” the real question is “will any woman that could pass the course volunteer?”

Good luck ladies.

This is huge. Ranger school is one of the toughest military schools out there, and is utterly unforgiving. I think the drop out rate is around 50-60%? My question is, will Sapper school also be open to female soldiers?

Sapper School has been open to women for years. Their graduation rate used to be 35% compared to 50% for males, but that has changed and currently the graduation rate for women is about 50%. A couple times a female has been the honor grad. In 2013 the total number of female grads was 55 out of 135 who attempted the course. They are saying that it hasn’t impacted the school and it maintains a gender neutral standard.

I watched a special on Sapper School a while ago. There were a few soldiers that had to make up the ruck to pass. A female among them. She passed with time to spare but a Marine fell out a few miles back. So it is still a grueling course. I think Ranger School will be like that. If the right woman/women volunteer she/they will pass it.
