I wouldn't even waste your time responding any further guy. Hold your head high, and be the best person that you can be, don't lower yourself to get pulled into this style of drama, especially when you look at where it is coming from. I would say more, but, well you know, some things are just better left for the imagination...Be well!!

Marine4Life: You are darned right, it is getting HOT in here!! I've been in an air conditioned office all day, and now I am at my part time job and this humidity is about killing us. I'll meet you over to the bar.

OOH RAH. I'm on the way!

One of the 4 worst things to hear in the Army...........................................A CW5 saying hey watch this **** its going to be cool
From what I've read on goarmy.com and heard on the video posted there, WO also have the ability to be able to stay in service longer than O series officers. I guess it's because they are specialists in a particular field whereas O series officers aren't. For example, a WO that flies Blackhawks will always fly the Blackhawks. An O series officer that flies the Blackhawk will only fly it for a certain amount of time. He'll be given duties that may not even pertain to flying at some point in his career. Plus if O series officers dont advance by a certain time, they're forced to retire. Some thing to look at when deciding which way to go. In the Marine Corps, you have to serve as an enlisted Marine before becoming a WO. The Army is different.

LOL. Being an officer means joining the dark side. That's funny. Imaine Darth Vader in cammies. He wouldn't need a helmet would he. I'm trying to join the dark side of the Marine Corps myself. HOWEVER, I've have seen the enlisted side too so I'm good.

You've got your phraseology mixed up a bit, Samuel. Rangers wear Tan Berets & "Black Hats" are instructors in Airborne School.

There was a time I think about 10 or so years ago when Rangers of the 75th Regt. wore Black Berets while nobody but SF & Airborne wore berets. There was also a short time, before I was in the Army, where Armor wore Black Berets. Now of course everyone else wears the black beret.

I was proud of my Maroon Beret but now some of the meaning of the whole beret system has been watered down.

I thought that was the case before. I didn't remember everyone in the Army wearing berets. Honestly I thought only the Green Berets actually wore them. Obviously I was wrong.
