:( i think military is really not for me
Why would you want to join the military? You're lucky your diabetes will keep you from making such a terrible mistake. Veterans have much worse health than non-veterans. That's probably because of all the trauma involved in military training and wars. I wrote about this at http://dissidentvoice.org/2010/06/veterans%E2%80%99-horrible-health/
I agree, David, there's got to be a more meaningful way to spend your time on this earth than killing "the enemy du jour".
it s an honor to join the military and serve my country :) but i guess im okay with it now, since i can do more things to help my country even if im not in the nilitary. thank you guys for enlightening me :)
You are correct, Jastine. IT is ah honour to serve. I never did, although I wanted to go. It was during the Vietnam era and I didn't want to get drafted. I got drafted anyway, and failed the physical due to poor eyesight. I recommend that youcheck out the Navy. They are a little more calm and might have something for you. It never huts to ask.
thank you for the advice, Sir :) i will do that :) God bless you!
There are better ways to help, Jastine, then by killing people in other countries who you have been told are "the enemy". The people in those countries are just people like you, with families, dreams, health problems, hopes for the future. There are people in this country and in other countries who are hungry, who have diabetes and can't pay for their insulin, children who are being abused and women being oppressed. The planet needs care and nurturing; people need care and nurturing, not killing.
thank you. i don't need to be int he military to serve and help others.
thank you dear :) yes we can!
OK much older now than I was back when I wanted to join the Navy but this is what I was told then. (Things have probably changed since then there probably are exceptions now) I was told that I couldn't join b/c what would I do when being fired upon if I had to take time out to give myself a shot. Back then there was't a pump or pens u had to get a vial and a syringe to pull up ur insulin.
true :) enemies won't wait and give you time before they fire ;) you made me smile with that lol :) thanks dear
