    Default Hey Hey!

    Hey everybody! I'm at Air Force Basic right now, having a killer time.

    On Base Lib., so I thought I would pop in and leave a message.

    Gotta head out though.

    I'll see you at the big one.

    Damn, the airforce is lax. When I was in Army Basic we were lucky to even see a phone let alone a computer.

    Talking Oaths fo enlistment

    Subject: Oaths of Enlistment

    Each service takes a hit in this one. They're all close to the truth!

    U.S. AIR FORCE OATH OF ENLISTMENT
    I, Zoomie, swear to sign away four years of my useless life to the
    United States Air Force because I know I couldn't hack it in the Army
    and because the Marines frighten me.
    I swear to sit behind a desk and take credit for the work done by
    others more dedicated than me who take their job seriously.
    I also swear not to do any form of real exercise, but promise to
    defend our bike-riding test as a valid form of exercise.
    I swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States,
    even though I believe myself to be above that.
    I promise to walk around calling everyone by their first name because
    I know I'm not really in the military and I find it amusing to annoy
    the other services.
    I will have a better quality of life than all those around me and will
    at all times be sure to make them aware of that fact.
    After completion of my-snicker-"basic training," I will be a lean,
    mean, doughnut-eating, lazy-boy sitting,
    civilian-wearing-blue-clothes, Chairborne Ranger.
    I will believe that I am superior to all others, and will make an
    effort to clean the knife before stabbing the next person in the back
    with it.
    I will do no work unless someone is watching me (and it makes me look
    good), will annoy those around me, and will go home early every day.
    I consent to never getting promoted-EVER-and understand that all those
    whom I made fun of yesterday probably will outrank me tomorrow.
    So help me God.

    U.S. ARMY OATH OF ENLISTMENT
    I, Rambo, swear to sign away four years of my mediocre life to the
    United States Army because I couldn't score high enough on the ASVAB
    to get into the Air Force, I'm not tough enough for the Marines, and the
    Navy won't take me because I can't swim.
    I will wear camouflage every day and tuck my trousers into my boots
    because I can't figure out how to use blousing straps.
    I promise to wear my uniform 24 hours a day even when I have a date.
    I will continue telling myself that I am a fierce killing machine
    because my drill sergeant told me I am, despite the fact that the only
    action I ever will see is a court martial for sexual harrassment.
    I acknowledge the fact that I will make E-8 in my first year of
    service, and vow to maintain that it is because I scored perfect on my
    PT test.
    After completion of my sexual-er-I mean, BASIC training, I will attend
    a different Army school once every other month and return knowing less
    than I did when I left. On my first trip home after boot camp, I will walk around like I am
    cool and propose to my ninth-grade sweetheart.
    I will make my wife stay home, because if I let her out she might
    leave me for a smarter, better-looking Air Force guy.
    Should she leave me twelve times, I will continue to take her
    back. While at work, I will maintain a look of knowledge while getting
    absolutely nothing accomplished.
    I will arrive at work every day at 1000 hours because of morning PT
    and leave every day at 1300 hours to report back to the "COMPANY."
    I understand that I will undergo no training whatsoever that will help
    me get a job upon separation, and will end up working construction
    with my friends from high school.
    I will brag to everyone about the Army giving me $30,000 for college,
    but will be unable to use it because I can't pass a placement exam.
    So help me God.

    U.S. NAVY OATH OF ALLEGIANCE
    I, Top Gun, in lieu of going to prison, swear to sign away four
    years of my life to the United States Navy because I want to hang out
    with Marines without actually having to BE one of them, because I
    thought the Air Force was too "corporate," and because I thought,
    "Hey, I like to swim...Why not?"
    I promise to wear clothing that went out of style in 1976 and to have
    my name stencilled on the butt of every pair of pants I own.
    I understand that I will be mistaken for the Good Humor man during the
    summer, and for the Waffen SS during the winter.
    I will strive to use a different language than the rest of the
    English-speaking world, using words like "deck, bulkhead, cover, and
    head," when I really mean "floor, wall, hat, and toilet." I will take
    great pride in the fact that all Navy acronyms, ranks and insignia,
    and everything else for that matter, are completely different from the
    other services and make absolutely no sense whatsoever.
    I will muster (whatever that is) at 0700 hours every morning unless I
    am buddy-buddy with the Chief, in which case I will show up around
    0930 hours.
    I vow to hone my coffee cup handling skills to the point that I can
    stand up in a kayak being tossed around in a typhoon and still not
    spill a drop.
    I consent to being promoted and subsequently busted at least twice
    each fiscal year.
    I realize that, once selected for Chief, I am required to submit
    myself to the sick, and quite possibly illegal, whims of my new-found
    "colleagues."
    So help me Neptune.

    For some reason I thought I busted your chops previously thinking you were a squid.


    I took the Marine's Oath. My brother in law has taken both the oath for Marines and the Air Force. I soon hope to take the Coast Guard Oath.


    I agree, the Air Force is lax. I had to wait until 11 weeks and 4 days into my recruit training to get some liberty. I graduated at 11 weeks and 5 days.

    We didn't even have computers when I was in the Navy.On Sunday,the CC's came in late and we got to spend the morning after chow on our own devices.We could go to the phone bank and call home at that time.In 1984,On Base Liberty mostly consisted of going to the NEX,spending the money vouchers(deducted from our first paychecks,of course)and every 30 feet,having to stop and salute a "red rope" Company Commander to show our on base Liberty card and explain why we weren't in formation or running everywhere we went.
    Recruit side was pretty much locked down,though once when I was assigned to SP duty after A school,we caught a guy trying to escape and tricked him into thinking we'd give him a lift to the train station.He never figured out we knew he wasn't on Liberty due to his haircut and slick sleeve dungarees.
