    Best answer: "I am not sure if they would struggle with sending a female into combat."
    That statement is about 20 years outdated. Women have been combat pilots, attack helicopter pilots, and many other positions for a number of years. Artillery and Infantry are the most recent jobs open to women. Once they are open, if you are in the position, you go. Being a woman is then irrelevant. I met one COL that said he preferred to have females as turret gunners when he was a BN CDR. He felt they performed better.

    "What majors would be good to eventually end up allowing me to end up in a combat area?"
    There isn't one. Your major is 100% irrelevant. The only thing that matters is your branch. If you graduate from West Point and choose Infantry, you will be Infantry.

    "Also, what should I do in general? Should I keep trying to be in charge on an infantry unit."
    You do well in your classes. Stay EXTREMELY fit. Between your junior and senior year, you will be expected to go to Airborne School. You must complete that if you want to be Infantry. Upon graduation, you will go to Infantry Basic Officer Leadership Course. After completion, you will go to Ranger School. If you fail to graduate Ranger School, you won't be leading Infantry Soldiers and you will be in a staff or training position until you decide to resign. If you complete Ranger School, you will be assigned to your first unit. About 90% of the initial assignments for 2LT are as Platoon Leaders. From there, you will move through different positions during your career. There will be some staff positions and some leadership. Eventually, you will be expected to be a Company Commander and Battalion Commander.

    "going into combat" is a hit or miss.You haven't even started West Point yet. You have over 4 years before graduation. Nobody knows what will be happening in the world at that time. If you were graduating from West Point today, you would probably have about a 1 in 2 chance of doing a combat tour during your next 6 years. It would probably be one tour and there would be about a 1 in 10 chance that you would ever fire your weapon.

  • Can US military enlistments be involuntarily extended (see details), and if so, for how long?

    Best answer: Your hypothetical case would never happen. A misfit that was still an E1 would have been ushered off the base long before their ETS. and while part of the pay can be withheld, fines are not assessed.

  • If I join the military as a woman, should I just say goodbye to ever getting married?

    I'm a 25 yr old woman thinking about joining the air force. Not sure for how long. I'm concerned that if I do, I wont get married...because its different for women.

    I'm a 25 yr old woman thinking about joining the air force. Not sure for how long. I'm concerned that if I do, I wont get married...because its different for women. If a man is in the military he can just tote his wife around with him if shes a stay at home wife, part time worker, etc. But men aren't going to follow me around, they're typically more serious about their long term jobs. Also, if I marry someone in the military, we might be separated to different stations. I also don't want to be the sole breadwinner if I do get married...so my options kind of suck. Should I just resign myself to never getting married if I join & stay in the air force?

  • My dad wants me to join the marines, but I want to pick any other branch. Opinions?

    I love my dad, but sometimes I wish he would use his noggin. He usually does not bother me on my decisions, but won't let go of this one. I tell him I don't want to join the marines because they have the lowest re-enlistment rate of all the branches. What does that tell you? I was also doing research... show more
    I love my dad, but sometimes I wish he would use his noggin. He usually does not bother me on my decisions, but won't let go of this one. I tell him I don't want to join the marines because they have the lowest re-enlistment rate of all the branches. What does that tell you? I was also doing research and found out interest in the marines is highest at ages 17-18, but drastically diminishes with age. The marine interest actually diminishes below all other branches by age 21-22. The US marines has an ASVAB score on par with the army. I really think the only reason it's not lower is because of public relations. A score requirement lower than the army would REALLY make them look bad. That would just be one more lowly area for them. I think people are just enamored by the marketing of cool looking uniforms and pithy slogans like, "Once a marine, always a marine." And yes, I know I can make my own decisions and all that blah, blah, blah, but wondering if anybody ever ran into this. Thanks. http://www.people.mil/Portals/56/Documen...

  • So I m looking for good logical advice.?

    Best answer: join spouse is not 100% you have to choose your AFSC wisely, to make sure both spouses AFSC can even be assigned to the same base IE: you wouldn't want one doing bomber maintenance and the other doing fighter maintenance-- since the chances of them both being on the same base are next to zero so one spouse... show more
    Best answer: join spouse is not 100%

    you have to choose your AFSC wisely, to make sure both spouses AFSC can even be assigned to the same base

    IE: you wouldn't want one doing bomber maintenance and the other doing fighter maintenance-- since the chances of them both being on the same base are next to zero

    so one spouse needs a AFSC that can basically go anywhere, like a admin clerk or security forces-- even if it means doing a job that they might not want to do.

    join spouse works great for lower enlisted, but gets harder as your gain rank-- since there are fewer slots for you to move into at a higher rank

    so during the 1st enlistment, not really an issue, but if you stay in the service, its starts becoming an issue after you reenlist and get promoted to ssgt, tsgt or msgt

  • What motivates people to join the army or the marines?

    Best answer: A chance to serve the country, a sense of adventure, a desire to belong, a desire to get away from your circumstances. A desire so test ones self to see what they are made of.
    And in my day, occasionally a local judge encouraged a young man to join as an alternative to prison for petty crimes.

  • Joining the air force?

    Best answer: if you get married, HE will be barred from accessing any base or base facility. that means no housing, no access to the commissary or exchange, no medical care on base. that means he will need to use Tricare Standard and have to use civilian doctors, pay the copays and deductibles instead of getting it all... show more
    Best answer: if you get married, HE will be barred from accessing any base or base facility. that means no housing, no access to the commissary or exchange, no medical care on base. that means he will need to use Tricare Standard and have to use civilian doctors, pay the copays and deductibles instead of getting it all free on base. he will never get command sponsorship if you get stationed overseas. he may not even be permitted to leave the area he is in now.

    as for housing on the economy: again, unless you buy, he may be refused by landlords to live in their properties.

  • In BMT do the trainees have time/want to read long letters?

    Or should I keep them short and sweet? I tend to ramble on in my letters and they end up being a few pages long, so I need to know if I should shorten them. Thanks!
