I'm thinking about joining when I graduate- BUT the only two positions I want to be in- I can't

I want to either fly planes in the air force or be a sniper in the army/marines

But I'm kind of colorblind

I know I can't fly planes, but what about being a sniper??

What positions are there in the military closest to being a sniper or flying planes

With that attitude, I'm not sure the army is a place for you.
No offense.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

You know, it's not gonna be anything like CS or any other FPS game. It's gonna be alot more terrifying, and it takes a ton of courage and training.

Well, obviously flying is out of the question. And being a sniper is rather specialised.

Do you like the iea of not moving for days on end, in silence, in your own steaming piss and sh*t, whatever weather, with one other person who your safety pretty much depends on?

exactly, being a sniper requires the strictest of mental discipline, you could have to sit in the same spot for days. maybe even weeks at a time, without eating, or making any nosies at all.

I joined the USAF back in Aug 2005, I knew several people who were partially colorblind who were working Intel positions. That's Military Intelligence mind you. Have you taking any type of ASVAB test yet?

Snipers have to poo and wee in the suit, and stay there for about a month. If the enemy doesn't see you, they'll spot the cholera, or the smell cloud.

I understand everything, and I think it would be good for me to man up- if I was a sniper


i don't really play video games much anymore- and I know it's going to be totally different- that's why it's called a "game"


I haven't taken the colorblind test- but when you put certain colors together it's hard for me to tell them apart-

Well, flying will be in the airforce as a pilot, or to join either the army or navy's aircraft fleets as a pilot (or so it is in the UK).

Being a sniper isn't something you join the armed forces to do. It is something that your are selected to do. After basic training, the essesntially as the people who excelled in marksmanship, camoflauge etc. to recieve extra training to become a sniper.

As Gal said, I don't think the armed forces are for you. You seem to be focusing on try to do something 'cool' as opposed to really thinking about what you are going to do be doing. It is just how the say sniper or pilot, two of the most glamerous fighting roles, or so the media portray them.

Being a pilot is an incredibly tough job. It isn't something you will enjoy if you look at in and go 'I'll give that a shot'. Being in the army/marines at any level is grueling work, but snipers have an incredibly tough job, both metally and physically.

Personally, I think you have played to many computer games, and think it will all be good fun. Joining the armed forces is not a decission to be taken lightly.

The restrictions they place on colorblind people are not all that extensive. Yes if you don't pass it some fields will be closed to you. Don't know if "sniper" is one of them. The Army recruits most of it's sniper school candidates from people that are E4 and higher and that hold or have previously held a combat arms mos and that have consistantly qualified as expert with an M16. I recieved 2 invitations to go to sniper school when I was in. I declined them both.

Well I do need a way to pay for college- and I know the Air force is the most luxurious of the armed forces, but yes, being a sniper does seem cool

and the mental discipline is something I really need to work on

I wanted to join the military when I was a little kid- and I just got done watching Saving Private Ryan and it resparked my interest

But I'm smarter then I sound- I know being in the military is hard- I could get ****ing killed. I don't know if I'm man enough to kill someone else though

I think you are joining with the wrong intentions personally

do this because you want to do something for your country, not because you think it will be "cool"

Then the armed forces sound wrong for you, unless you're part of Intel.

Thing is, as a sniper, they generally aren't trying to kill you because they shouldn't know you're bloody there.

you seem very deluded mate

joining any armed force is not easy, at all.

if you think you aren't man enough to shoot another man, being a sniper would be very stupid. You will have to watch the persons head you have just put a bullet in shower everywhere within a 5 m radius with blood and brains, knowing you're the one responsible. you will have to look into his eyes, and end his life with one twitch of your finger.

it's not a game.
