Hey

Unread postby deveagle » 20 February 2021, 04:26

So Ive never really been on a forum like this so not sure what is expected in a post like this but ill try my best anyway.

My name is Christian I'm 20 from the US. I like video games and listening to music, I also dabble in 3D art on occasion. I work at a heavy equipment rental store and have also been in the Army Reserve for about 3 years now. ( I actually should be packing for training tomorrow but instead Im here)

Thats pretty much it, thanks for reading...

Hello Christian,

Do you have to serve in the army in the US?

Nice to meet you as well! I am just surprised that I didn't know it is obligatory to do that in the US. It is also obligatory in my country but if you are gay, you can't join as it is deemed as a threat. So I had to go through some procedure to rid of it.

Hey Christian, welcome. I was a bit cloudy, are you enlisting fully tomorrow or is it just supplementary training? Do you see the Army as a career for you, or is it a matter serving whilst you figure out where you want your life to take you?

Do you feel like maybe sharing some of your art? Either here, or in the general pics section.

So, I am in the reserves so I am a full fledged soldier and have been for about 3 years now. I do not want to do make it a career, however I have gotten a lot of good out of it and plan to serve out the remainder of my contract.

Also I would love to share some of my art and will probably do so in the general pics section.

So service is no longer mandatory in the US, I joined when I was 17 on my own volition. (Im sorry I misread your previous question)
On a positive note gays are allowed in the military as of 2011 although much prejudice remains, it has gotten better.
