    Are infantrymen indefinitely being deployed into combat roles right now?

    The honest truth in the infantry right now is you will train about 15% of the time and play cards the other 85%.  All combat arms you will sit around more then anything.  We aren't deployed anywhere in a major way right now and we don't have the budget to train as much as we should. The...

    Medical Standards & Common Medical Questions/Topics

    The only way to know for sure is to speak to your recruiter and be up front about everything.  Every application is looked at on a case by case basis.

    Another question...this time about deployments

    There is a lot more to being a good officer then being intellectual and, from my experience as a NCM (granted that is only 3 years) the best officers often are hands on. Just food for thought you might be applying for something a little more then you think.

    Self driving vehicles

    Obviously I'm all for saving lives, but all I can picture with this is me trucking myself through the mud to hook up a stuck Unmanned vehicle because I have no drivers to send into the hole during a recovery.

    Recently big infantry intake

    It doesn't really operate that way.  Trades all have a set number and if they are below they hire if they are equal or above they don't. As far as I know the Veh Tech world is out of the red zone but we still need a constant replenishment as alot of people shuffle out of this trade.

    Help with Healthy Weight Gain please.

    At 88lbs you could have a kit load-out weighing as much as you  :nod: I've never had issues with weight being 6'4" and 220lbs but eating more, and working out more has been a long standing method of weight gain.  Supplements are great just try and keep fairly natural things like whey proteins...

    Warrior Platoon

    I honestly feel warrior should not exist.  These people should have a second chance but not on DND payroll.  I think it should be a test at the CFRC if your not quite up to par then leave the file open give them another chance to improve themselves and come back whenever they are ready.  I knew...
