    Hello, my name is Lena. I am from New Mexico and I have been tasked with writing a research paper about a digital community for my college writing course at the community college in central New Mexico. If possible, I would like to ask some of the fellow servicemen (active or retired) on this site a few questions. I will post them below and if anyone would like to answer, that would be great. If not, I completely understand.
    • What is, or was, your reason for joining the military?
    • Do you enjoy what you do or did while serving?
    • What were some of the tough decisions you had to make?
    • How has this online community helped you connect with fellow servicemen?
    There are...

    So i've made up my mind to enlist with the corp, but im not sure what MOT to go with... on one hand i really want to become a rifleman because since i was little i've wanted to be deployed and see combat, but I would also like to get some kind of civilian skill out of it so i can get myself a decent job once im out... are there any jobs that would be hte best of both worlds? my first though was a a tank mechanic but M1 crews dont have a mechanic that rides along, and im not sure of any other MOT's that would be what im looking for.

    Also, im not in the best physical shape currently, i can do *tops* 10-15 push ups, and maybe 10-12 pull ups, but running is my weakest link, and i was...

    WARSAW, Poland — The Serbian Ministry of Defenee is planning to purchase S-300 long-range surface-to-air missile systems and seven Mikoyan MiG-29 fighter jets from Belarus.

    The deals are to be signed this November during an official visit by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic to Minsk where he will meet with his Belarusian counterpart, Alexander Lukashenko, a Serbian government source told local daily Tanjug.

    The unnamed official said that “the offer that is on the table and which will be announced in November is much more favorable than the one that we obtained from Moscow.”

    The value of the planned deal was not disclosed....

    Iraqi security forces have launched a "major operation" in the Kurdish-held region of Kirkuk to take control of a strategic military base and oil fields, according Kurdish and Iraqi officials.

    The aim of the advance early on Monday was taking control of the Kurdish-controlled K1 airbase, west of Kirkuk, Lieutenant Colonel Salah el-Kinani, of the Iraqi army's 9th armoured division, told Reuters news agency.

    So, the short and sweet version is this: Two years ago, I went to the eye doctor to get contacts, but during the exam she said it's possible I might have glaucoma, or I do. I can't exactly remember. After doing some online searching, I found various answers to the question that I asked in the title. They vary to "No, no chance at all." or "It's possible, but you'd need a medical waiver." I would call and ask my recruiter, but it's Sunday so they're not answering; and that's the same case for all eye exam doctors in my town.

    Are there any Service members, Navy or otherwise, hopefully with detailed knowledge on this particular topic that can answer my question? Thank you.
