    Once again, to be clear, when we picked up our base from Ar Ramadi and moved to afghan to start building, what would be, the biggest base we had in country, there was a draw down right after. If you don’t know what that means, I can’t help you. There were mass arbitrary contract terminations based on budget. How do you not know this?

    For the love of all that’s good in this world please tell me you served in some capacity. You’re acting like an absolute cunt

    So, you are the guy in the video?
    Did you read the link I sent to you?
    Where you involved with drugs after you left the military?
    Yeah, I feel your pain. We are loosing an average of 23 veterans a day to suicide.
    Have you looked into VA legal assistance with your issues? There is also non-veteran health assistance at the state and federal level.
    Look at all the free medical assistance our illegal immigrants crossing the border are getting from Joe Biden.

    Not if you are talking about an E-4 Specialist in the U.S. Army. You can be an E-4 going through basic training.

    Ok, I'm a retired vet and I use the VA. That being said...

    He's not wrong... I know that everyone's career field is different but here's what I did. Before I was set to retire, I got my entire medical record (both volumes) hard photocopied. Then at TAP class, a rep from the VA came in and gave his spiel.. Then the rep from the American Legion came in.

    The FIRST THING he said after introducing himself is that "The man who was just in here before me is NOT YOUR FRIEND." He told the truth and gave it to us raw. He then handed out his card and said "I don't work for the government, I work for the American Legion. My job is to get you what you deserve and have earned."

    I got with him a year before retirement and he was my advocate. He got me squared away. Those advocates know the process inside and out. They will help you.

    It took TWO YEARS, but I got made good to go.

    Bruh I really want you to have served so that I can somehow respect the ridiculous shit you’re talking.

    I don’t understand why you’re questioning my service. Do you want a snapshot of me and my A driver on top of our MK31 Mtvr tractor after delivering hesco supplies to begin the initial coalition buildup with no fucking security cordon and limited contact with higher. Do you want me to tell you how to operate the tractor to prove I’m not full of shit? What in the fuck is your problem as a vet?

    Why lie about being an NCO out of boot camp?

    Sea services. Is that the term you’re using to refer to my U.S. Navy? Are you from Denmark or something? Nobody with a real military would refer to their Navy as “sea services”. I’m MR2(SCW) Hartley of the US Navy. And fucking proud of it. Who the fuck are you?

    My man do I need to go to the effort of securing my service records to get you to shut you the fuck up? Hey man I’m real sorry you weren’t a performer in whatever branch you were in, but in the US Navy if you’re the top of your class in boot or in your common core training you get offered accelerated advancement for a six month contract extension. HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW THIS

    Were you one of those poor E3s that got sept’d on higher tenure or what? You seem to think making 4 is a challenge. We’re you a non rate your whole time in?

    What branch were you in? What was your rank? Where did you deploy?

    I was literally on the crew responsible for NJP admin and restriction. I kicked people out of the Navy.

    Do I need to break down the terms “draw down” and “budget” to you like a child? Do you not read and understand your contract?

    Third smallest and second highest trained rate in the Navy behind nukes and radar. The training was so valuable that battalions were desperate for our gig but could usually only support one of us because of the equipment burden. Nah man, literally one of the most specialized skills in Navy engineering. But when congress says cut the budget, shit happens.

    Are you just a dumb mother fucker or willfully ignorant? Were you a grunt door kicking saw gunner that couldn’t make rank because he fucked up all the time? Saw that from a lot of QRF dudes. Sucks. What’s your problem bud?

    Are you going ham on that Wikipedia game to understand anything I’ve told you?

    Were you a top five O and it’s easy to look you up and that’s why you can’t state your branch, unit, and rank? I can respect that.

    @Dan O, I believe @My Spot was in the U.S. Marine Corps. Enlisted. E-6. Not sure of his MOS, I don't think it was Infantry. Not sure if the guy deployed or not. This is not his first argument with military folks in here. Refer to post #5663 and @Darkballs comments.

    @My Spot, dude, these stupid arguments you seem to start are really annoying. Just let it go and let it be. No one is going to post their DD-214 on this site. Frankly, I don't think most folks really care. We all had our experiences and did our part. You had some good posts in the past. What happened to that?
