A few of you already know this, but I'm going on hiatus for a while. I'm shipping out to MCRD in San Diego, California early tomorrow morning. As things are right now I'm set up to be 57-11, CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear Defense) Reserve, and as a result will not be able to post much for the next 7-10 months.

I will be back.

Enjoy being a Hollywood Marine (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) Good luck. Remember everything the Drill Instructors do is a mind game to break you. Shut your mouth, do as you are told, don't laugh, and you should be just fine. After boot camp enjoy shipping out to Fort Leonardwood (Lonelywood) so you can get gassed by every agent known to man. On the plus side by the time you are done with MOS school you will be immune to the effects of tear gas.

Good luck. Don't let the bastards get you down. Remember that boot camp is designed to allow an average guy to succeed, and your cadre isn't trying to screw you over. Screw with you and your mind, yes, but it's not personal and it's designed to make dirtbags quit, not make YOU quit. And hell, shooting guns and blowing up crap while being paid every day is a ball. Enjoy every part you can.

Best of luck. Stay invisible, don't be first or last to finish anything, do what you're told without hesitation, and never forget they're not allowed to kill or injure you in training (only hurt). You'll be fine.

Thank you for your service.

Allow me to take personal exception to this statement.

In the summer of 1989, I enlisted in the U.S. Army and reported to Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri, for training as a combat Engineer, 12B.

I was not able to complete my training, and received a Chapter 11 ELS ("Entry Level Separation").

I was not and am not a "dirtbag". I have an anxiety/stress disorder. If I could make just one wish, change just one thing in my own life - it would have been to succeed in the Army.

Thus, I take offense at the suggestion that it's "dirbags" that BCT for any service is supposed to weed out. Well-meaning but less-capable persons are actually at the top of the list of folks BCT is supposed to weed out of the service.

Don't get shot, i always liked reading your optimization.

I expect a full analysis of how unrealistic the SR rules are in regard to NBC protection once you get back (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

I would say it's about as realistic as the firearms rules. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

But threads about unrealistic firearms rules got boring three weeks after the release of 1st Ed, here's the chance for something new (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I went through most of the MOS level training for NBC since I was an NBC Instructor amongst other things, and I don't think you would ever really want to play realistic NBC in a game.

I think that NBC shouldn't be in the game at all. Do ANY of you think that if a 'Runner team used that shit, that the whole NATION would be after their asses? If they could get a nuke to go off then I can see the following:

Ares: You know guys, we absolutely hate you with every fiber of our being...
Aztechnology: We believe that statement is the only thing that we will ever agree with you on.
Ares: We want those 'Runners very, very, dead
Aztechnology: We stand corrected. That is two things that we agree on.


There is NO positive way to spin a nuke going off except for an insect spirit invasion, and even then it was seen very dimly. Biological weapons are another of those things that is almost impossible to give a positive spin (again if you're got an insect spirit invasion, then a bio weapon that works only on them is OK). Chemical weapons... you MIGHT have a small chance of that being swept under the rug.

Thanks for serving, so those of us who were in the Air Force didn't have to get out where the bullets are (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Also, military service is definitely a deal that pays back the more you put into it. 10 years from boot you won't remember all the stupid crap they did either (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I'll tell that to the 60 thousand homeless veterans. They clearly didn't put enough into it.
