I will try and get some information and post it......but do me one favor...stop making pointless arguments with people....its not big and its not clever...you just end up looking like and sounding like a child

I said the same thing to Sconwill in the Israeli thread

If you want to make an officer in the British armed forces you have to make sure your head is on straight
Ok

And no I am from Leicester in the UK

Thanks for the information

Then disregard all that I suggested. I thought you were from the U.S. also.

None if what I told you applies the the British forces.

I cant find too much infomation on that set up with uni....but I will look into it more when I have more time and get it posted

Well done on the new avatar......Im glad you got rid of the SAS one before you got under my skin and the skin of other British people on here

One more piece of advice.... Respect and stripes have to be earned

So do patches and insignia like that

All the best mate

I thought about that when I first looked at the Corps. They say that your odds of getting an OCS contract now are slim to none.

That's why I went PLC, because I rally wanted to take advantage of my degree.

Bear in mind Sniper - he's from the U.K. None of what we tell him about the U.S. military has absolutely no bearing on him.
