    Best answer: You may be aware that the Korean WAR *never* ended.

    An Armistice was signed in 1953.........a ceasefire. There was never an official declaration of the END of Hostilities. We have been , and are STILL at war, with the North..........we're just enjoying a ceasefire......that has now lasted 64 years., that's all.

    That's why we maintain troops there...........because the second we pull them out.........the North will take that as a sign that it's okay to roll into Seoul now, and take over the South.

    or at least attempt to.

    My son is in Basic Training. He has sustained fractures to his shin. He passed all of Red Phase And is now in White Phase. He has also passed all of his PT except for the 2 mile run (due to the injury). He called (with the DS giving him instructions in the background) to say if he could not complete training then he would not graduate and would be sent home a week after graduation, and could try again in 6 months. I thought if they were injured they would be sent to Medical and later recycled. What usually happens in this case? He has worked so hard.

By the end of my first semester I'll have the weight to enlist but would it be better to just finish my degree and join as an officer after or enlist and then come back after I get done with my 4 year service and​ go to college after? Thanks in advance for any help

    I'm 20 with no real job skills or training. I have zero dollars to my name and kind of just have no point in life right now. I want to to try to actually have a life but i just can't find a good job. The thing that scares me about the army is that that's FOUR years of my life just gone. All for some training and paychecks. It would feel like i accomplished something by serving but at the same time I'd be missing out on so much in the civillian world. Can anyone tell me the good things about the army?

  • Is it true that people with a past of mental health issues can join the army now?

    My teacher who was in the army recently informed me that the army is now taking in people with a past of mental health issues and drug abuse, and I indeed had both. I gave up on joining the army awhile and I m now 16. Is that true though? Cause I might want to join when the time comes for me.
