  • ROTC Experiences?

    Hey just wondering if anybody is going through any sort of ROTC programs for USAF or the army or the likes. And if theres any of the sort out of the US.

    I personally just got done with my second day of Physical training for AFROTC, and tell you what, it sucked, haha. What's worse is that I have classes afterwords... :row__522:

        A guy I was in the Marines with is doing Army ROTC now after he got out. From what it sounds like it's the same crap as the military, wake up early before class for PT, dealing with stupid people, but it gives you a foot in the door to a decent paying job and a head start as an officer. Good option if you are serious about doing military and need help with school.

          If you plan on going into the military ROTC is great. It would be RETARDED not to. I started back in middle school, and eventually gave it up in highschool, seeing as I had other career paths and was just fed up with the grind.

            I'm currently participating in AFROTC in College (Detachment 345, UMass Lowell, MA), and I am serious about pursuing a military career. I'm majoring in Plastics Engineering, so theres definitely career options with that :D

              ROTC was the best thing I ever did. I was in the Corp of Cadets at Texas A&M and was in an Air Force unit. Very enjoyable and memorable part of my life. Great move for improving your mental and physical development.

                Just wrote a nice long post and then my internet crapped out as I clicked "post..."

                Third year AFROTC Cadet here, just got back from Field Training three weeks ago and contracted last week :D. If you have any questions feel free to let me know!

                I didn't join a squad once and this guy named Nardini took me into the back room and beat me with a sock of oranges.

                  Many many years ago I did NROTC at CU. Loved every minute of it. You think PT is bad where you guys are doing it/have done it? Try doing it in the mountains at a minimum altitude of 5600 feet. :D

                    I did basic training, US army. I also did Warrant Officer Basic - much worse. It was quite an experience.

                    You have to turn your mind off. Get used to it.

                      Here is a good start, unless you really desire to play with the Air Force.

                        And a little extra, if you have not been to the National Museum of the Marine Corps, go visit.

                            I'm a plebe at West Point, but last year I did the USMC Platoon Leader's Class at Cal State Maritime

                            Coming from a ROTC-like program at a civilian school to West Point, I'll say that ROTC guys and my PLC classmates from last year will be much better off socially (you guys 'get' the college atmostphere) than my classmates here, but we've got our perks too.

                            My priorities, in order. 1) KD/R 2) Winning 3) Gunning in a Tank 4) Everything Else
