Uh, hi yourself.
Nobody says that this was an oil painting... Don't know where you got that.
Clearly the TI editors saw something that you didn't; I think that it is a wonderful picture, and if you look more carefully, you will see a deeper meaning.
Okay, so I replied, and it didn't show up! So now I have to retype it! UGH!
Yeah, ranks can get pretty confusing, I've been watching a documentary series about the Navy lately (Carrier) and it shows the men and women serving on a Nimitz class carrier (whatever that means). The, for lack of a better word at the moment, leader of the carrier (I'll call him Captain Smith) is shown on the show from time to time, and every time I see him, I think THEY'RE LETTING A CAPTAIN BE IN CHARGE?!?...

Okay so I'll try to answer everything you asked/commented, but I beg patience because you're asking a lot & because I was only in NJROTC for 2 years (freshman & sophomore years before I graduated 2 years early..long story..)
I was always more interested in the people/leadership side of the military (which is what our JROTC program featured anyway), so I can't tell you much about weapons/aircraft/ships. However, I can tell you a lot about ranks, jobs, termino... (more »)
Yeah, as I was thinking about the wookie question shortly after asking it, it dawned on me that I probably didn't want to know why they were called that.
Yeah, I knew that the military did a lot of peace keeping missions and a lot more than just running around with rifles all day, but that was unfortunately after I made a complete fool out of myself.
Y!A can get pretty brutal, so if I ask a question that I really don't want people to know it was me asking, I have a whole other a... (more »)
Hmm, AF vs. Navy fighter pilots: I don't know which is easier to achieve, but I have some friends still in JROTC that would know that I'll be seeing over spring break. Besides, our LCDR used to be a pilot in the Navy before he retired.
Though I don't think having a Gold Award would help you much, the AFJROTC might. Again, I'm just a teenager; I don't know everything. Go talk to a recruiter from all the branches of the military. They can't force you to commit to a branch before th... (more »)
Why, yes. Yes I do think about ROTC or attending one of the academies. Especially after reading In the Company of Men: A Woman at The Citadel by Nancy Mace. I’ve basically decided to make the USAFA my main goal, then, if I’m not accepted, try one of the senior military colleges. Lastly, if I’m not accepted to any of those – hangs head in shame – I’ll settle for ROTC at UT at Austin or Baylor. But hopefully I’ll be accepted to one of the first t... (more »)
Oh my gosh, I am so sorry I have taken so long to respond. I tried twice, and it never made it through, so here’s another try:
Yes, I am from Texas. I have heard that they have a pretty good ROTC program. I was watching videos on Det. 825’s (their AFROTC program) page, and part of it featured the… I forget what it’s called, but when they are told what AFSC they will be training for. A nice amount of them were given pilot or CSO slots. Of course, the AFA would b... (more »)
