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?
29 August 2008 - 02:01 PMWell the DNC thread is now closed. i really liked some of the things that were being posted in there, and was learning some good information. i was hoping that we can continue to have some political discussions, especial with everything that is going on in American Politics at the moment.
the key to keeping this thread alive is to keep it mature, responsible, and uncloseable (by that i mean dont give the mods reason to close it).
keep the discussion educated and respectfull. dont bash anyone else or say "your and idiot shut up your wrong". if you disagree with a view, then simply say so politily and post your ideas.
i really liked some of the things i saw in the old thread, and hope that a good, educated discussion can be had here.
enjoy, and please be considerate and keep this thread open.
