    Best answer: Kick out - no
    Refuse to enlist - yes

    Your question is "can" and yes they have the authority to act that way. But it practice, they will always have a reason. They might not tell you but they person who kicked you out will always have a reason to tell their superior when asked why.

    Kicking someone out is different than refusing to enlist someone. By joining the military, there is a contract between the military and the soldier. The military cannot terminate that contract other than according to the terms specified in that contract, which includes explaining why.

    Best answer: Broken Arrow.

    The term may now only refer to nuclear incidents but that was not always the case.

    http://www.kgbanswers.com/what-does-brok...

    Note that if a regular infantry unit is broadcasting a "Broken Arrow" call then it is extremely unlikely to refer to a nuclear incident.

    Finally, I don't think there was ever a code phrase for a unit commander to call for a strike on his own position. However, the commander could provide the coordinates of his own position as the target for the strike after declaring the emergency.

  • Military/Army question. Is there a such thing that you have to be on a list to talk to someone?

    Not just that, but it cost money for them to talk too you anytime. I believe it’s a scam but I need help and facts

  • Is it illegal to lie to a military recruiter?

    I wanted to contact a military recruiter via an online web chat feature on the particular branch's page. I only have one or two general questions and I don't feel like being haggled by a recruiter later on. I was going to give them a nom de plume instead of my real name. Is that illegal?

    What's going on everyone? You know, I know that our U.S. military have been in Afghanistan and out in the middle east terrorist countries for about 16 years now since 9/11 in [2001]. And we still haven't quite defeated and destroyed all of the deadly enemy terrorists out there and won the wars in the middle east, in Syria and in Afghanistan yet. And now that we have more advanced and stronger military weapons and technology, I'm hoping the U.S. military will finishing annihilating all of the remaining terrorists in syria, afghnistan and the middle east and win the wars out there so that they all won't be a deadly threat to the U.S. and the world anymore. So will the U.S. military finishing winning the wars out in the middle east and defeat all of the terrorists out there? Thank you and stay safe!

  • What is a line unit in the army?

    So I’m a newbie in the army now, fresh out of training and I’m assigned to an infantry battalion. First day here I overheard one of the squad leaders say he just got transferred from a “truck” unit to here, a “line” unit, I was just wondering what is the difference between those two?
