Topics I've Started
11 November 2010 - 02:30 PMWow, its been a few years since I've been on this forum. It's changed so much ha. But I'm back and I have a question for some of the ex-military guys in here.
Since I stopped posting on the SO Forum a lot has happened. In a nutshell, I was accepted to both West Point and was able to earn a 4-year full ride Army ROTC scholarship. I took the ROTC scholarship, and am now training to be an Army officer at Dickinson College with the Blue Mountain Battalion ROTC program.
Now, being able to attend special military schools in the summer is usually reserved for after the completion of your sophomore year, but since our sophomore class this year is very small, and I am near the top of my freshman class in ROTC, there is a good chance that I will be able to secure a spot that trickles down to the freshman. Going to Airborne School, Air Assault School, or both has been a dream of mine for years, and now I finally might have the opportunity to attend them. There is just one thing that worries me: I am absolutely petrified of heights.
I know it may not make any sense, but despite my fear of heights, this is something that I still really want to do. I don't want to let this fear keep me from attending one of these great schools. So my question goes out to any military/ex-military guys who have gone to either of these schools, and especially to those who also had a large fear of heights. Mainly how did you cope with the fear during the military school, and are there any tips you have in regards to overcoming that fear or for the schools in general.
Thank you for your time, and Happy Veterans Day,
01 September 2008 - 08:37 PMA local paintball place by me has banned the use of Monsterballs on its fields. there now is a huge sign outside the field saying "No Monsterballs Allowed on Field". i dont know the exact reasons for this (i havent spoken to the owner) but im not suprised. its probibly a saftey thing because we all know that getting shot with a monster ball is like getting shot with a marble.
have any fields that you guys know of done this too?
