24 June 2009 - 09:52 AMHello my fellow Sabres! The sabre area of this forum is frankly boring, and it's our job as Sabres to do something about that. Lets hear some of your most memorable moments of your career as a Sabre, even if its not that exciting, atleast your answereing the call and ALL posts will be respected. A little exageration is acceptable however, just nothing absolutely ridiculous. Let me star off.
Last summer, my cousin had his birthday party at nice paintball field in Virginia. The name of said field was and still is Hogback Mountain. Anyway, thatís not the point. Me and a few of my buds that make up a sort-of unofficial walk-on team (at the time) decided we'd try to go. We all made it there A okay (due to the fact that my dad works for a airline company and could get us discounted air fair) and had a blast. There was one game though that just sticks out in my career as a paintball player. We were playing an attack/defend game on their castle field, where the objective was to simply grab the flag. The Castle was a two-story structure on a field that was on the edge of a large field. There's about 50 yards of open land with bunkers surrounding the castle with woods around that. The game started and we began to move. The teams were a little stretched so there were 9 people in the castle and only 5 attackers. The three of us were on a team plus 2 of my cousinís friends that had never played before. My cousin had 4 people that had about the same amount of experience as we did. (We know this because this was the fourth or fifth game of the day) Anyway, we devised a quick plan. My two friends were to go up the sides of the field while I stayed at the base of the hill. One of the newer players went up the left side with Fishlips (thatís what we call him, and if u ever saw him run you would call him that too) and the other stayed at the base of the hill with me. The plan was to act out a rush from the left side while Scottie (it annoys him when we call him that) would take some of the defense out from the left. This part of the plan went well with one casualty for us and 3 for them. Now itís a little more fair. Fishlips ran up to the right side to make it appear that I was there. They let-a-rip at the castle, which directed its fire towards them. This gave me and my partner (the kid that hadn't played before that was still in) a chance to move up the middle. This is what they weren't expecting because they thought I was on the right as well. I provided a good covering fire while my noob ran up to get the flag. By the time the defense realized what happened he was already ten feet behind the flag and they were getting shot at by Scottie Fishlips and I. Thankfully, Scottie is a wizard with his 98c and was able to pick a couple more defenders off. They got me, but it was worth it in the end because we got the flag. And seeing the grin on that kids face. He shore was happy to have won the game for us and I think thatís something he'll remember for the rest of his life.
Now it's your turn, help out the forum!
Ohh man so many things wrong with this post I'm not even gunnah touch it.
Dude don't be a prick, he had good intentions with this cuz yeah the Sabre section is kinda dead. At least he took some initiative.
23 June 2009 - 02:28 PMWell i didn't mean it that way. I have a cousin who is a recruiter in the Army and she is not like that. Then again back when i was in high school and in JROTC the local Navy recruiter showed me "Air Force contracts" to "prove" that they lie about everything...even after i told him that i had already signed with the AF and that i never signed the "contract" he showed me. Also the local Marine recruiter(the recruitment offices were a few blocks from my HS) started talking to my girlfriend at the time telling her that if i went AF i had a 65% chance of going to Iraq but if i went Marine it was only 15%. Granted i have been going to Iraq or Afghanistan at least once a month cuz of my job(aircrew) but come on, 15% chance of a Marine going into combat?!?! I could keep going on and on but as you can see i base my opinion about recruiters on my own experiences or friends'. The only one who never lied to me was the AF recruiter and he tried to not tell me the whole truth as you mentioned but i was in AFJROTC plus wanting to be in the AF since i was like 5 years old so of course i already knew almost everything he was telling me and he knew he could not bs me. I hate bashing on other branches especially Army because i work with them a lot(taking a class this whole week from an Army guy actually) but the Army recruiters are some of the worst and most desperate that i've seen. I don't mean any disrespect and i love working with the SF guys(Spec Ops is the fav part of my job) but that's what i've experienced.
23 June 2009 - 02:14 PMdude im the same way, so far since jan all my money has been going towards paintball and stuff for my paintball team and i just realized a few days ago that i need a new amp but i'll have to wait until next year to get it cuz of all the money i've spent solely on paintball. i hate having to balance my free time between writing a new song or doing something related to the paintball team.
23 June 2009 - 08:50 AMMy fav song to play is God is dead by Vision Divine simply because of the message of the song...which is the complete opposite of what the song title might make you think lol
For the actual music itself i would have to go with Hallowed Be Thy Name by Maiden
23 June 2009 - 08:40 AMYou should mostly train for endurance. The Air Force has the lowest physical requirements besides the Navy(which i hate) but it is still pretty challenging for someone who is not in shape, especially the running. If you go Army or Marines make sure you are in really good shape first, that's there bread and butter(infantry) so it's really important. Back in P.R. there was a place where they put you through a mock boot camp and they teach everything from proper exercise technique to marching and even handling a rifle. See if you can find something like that. Your main focus should be running, push ups, crunches and pull ups to include all the variations within each one.
Also make sure that when you talk to a recruiter you are have already decided what you want to do, as soon as they see some doubt they will try to get you to do the job they want. It's always a good idea to have someone with you who is already military or at least knows more than you so he/she can listen to what the recruiter is saying. They always lie, remember that. They say a lot of things that are true but they always throw in some lies because it's their job to get people. You can always check back here, it looks like quite a few of us are either military or have good knowledge.
Oh and Night gave you the link
