Are you in a branch of your government's armed forces? Well I'm not but my brother is so I though I'd share a bit about him and what he does in the US Army. My brother joined the Army in 2005 as a helicopter mechanic cause he wasn't sure what he really wanted to do in life. It helped give him structure and purpose in his life and got him out of a shit hole of my home town. His first three years were spent at basic and other immediate training sites but his real back breaker was when he did 18 months straight in Sole S. Korea. Just imagine if you moved out of your home town and never really went outside of your state to experience anything and then all of a sudden your thousands of miles away from home in a complete shit hole. Crazy right?! My bro signed up for 5 years and recently resigned for life(20yrs). He currently works as a Chinook Helicopter gunner. He's a crazy mofo anyways but now he hangs out the side of a helicopter and gets to play with a Mini Gun! He's on 106th Special Ops Aviation Regiment SOAR: http://www.soc.mil/160soar/chinook.html Here's a vid of the Mini Gun he gets to play with: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RReAI3M1_K0 0:57 of this video is a clear pic of what he does: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwO1qZpU-EA&feature=related by the way the mini gun is total domination! If you or a friend or a family member are in the Armed Forces please post. You can post some details about what they do or where they were deployed to, I'd love to hear their story or simply MO.
