You don't serve our country; you never even leave it. You have a full-time job that requires you to wear a uniform, like a security guard. You will never see combat because you chose not to see it. You're the Army's tech support. If you do deploy, you'll be within walking distance of a Cinnabun.
Be quiet, private. PS: stop calling CAG/Delta part of, "Special Forces" because they're not. And please, if you see a Green Beret tell him you're a.. what is it? Systems Integrator or something, right? I don't remember exactly. Anyways, tell him you're tech support and make sure he stands at parade rest or renders a salute, or else. You aren't even in the army yet, you're in TRADOC.
The real question you should be asking yourself is: how'd I know you were a coward based solely on the way you handled yourself in this thread? And please open in on some line about how you might get killed by a mortar on the off, 8% chance you get deployed to a Cinnabun/Burger King outpost somewhere in Kandahar.
Do you know what I find delicious? You and the other guy have spent pages talking about how people aren't to be trusted over the internet, and you go and post that. But I'll trust your word, more than you have done for OP.
Also, you're a little misinformed about us. My next duty station is South Korea, which surely isn't a battlefield in Iraq, but it surely isn't conus. I got a 96 on my ASVAP, and my family has a history of being MI, there was no way I was going to settle for 19D or 13B. Someone has to be the Army's tech support, and I am more than willing to do it. I leave AIT with an associate's degree, pretty sweet isn't it?
Also, I love how you play up "Signals analyst" as if it's some hot ****. If you're talking about 35S before the MOS reorganization, you did the exact same things we are doing (fixing broken Army equipment). If you're talking about the new 35S (which I assume you aren't because of the length), just... Lol.
I'm going to forgive your ad hominum attacks on my attitude towards NCOs. You should know that TRADOC privates are the lowest of the low, and if I ever attempted such a thing, I would be chaptered out of the Army faster than I could drop to get smoked.
