New recruits

#1
How can new recruits take pride in joining the Army today ?
After comments from Des Brown ?
Can i just ask everyone who is joining how they feel being compared to thick people and how you feel at being an under achiever who cannot get a job in civvi street would like to hear what more new recruits think cheers.

They can take pride in doing something they want to do and doing it well, they can take pride in doing a job that betters them as a person. Mr Browne only showed he is an ignorant tw@t saying what he said.

I would just like to add how i feel !!!

Yes i want to join the army to do the job i have wanted to do for years !
So a croupier is not a job that is respected ? to be a croupier you have to be smart at counting like doing times table of 35,17,11,8,5 try doing them on the spot or go to a casino and see how smart these people are, that is what i do for a living just now and feel him judging me and many others sicking :!:

who would want to work for an employer that is stabbing us in the back ?
His comments have really got to me and am having serious second thoughts now :!:

yes i am not one who is scared to voice my opinion and hope many others aint aswel :!:

edited to say i might go looking for a traffic wardens job haha :twisted:

Can someone post a link to these quotes? Cheers.

I haven't seen what he said, but I have 13 GCSE passes and I can't think of a more rewarding job (well this excludes money-wise seeing as traffic wardens get paid more...) for me do, the money aspect wasn't why i wanted to join, i want to serve my country but i do think soldiers should get paid more but that's a whole different subject.

The image of the army has been for too long a 'last resort' option and it has to stop being seen as that. Just looking on here and intereacting with you lot, it shows we're no a bunch of illiterate, stupid, *insert your own word her* people...well most of the time ;)

WHOEVER YOU ARE, WHATEVER YOUR EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND etc, BE PROUD AT THE JOB YOU ARE CHOOSING TO DO! YOU ARE CHOOSING TO SERVE YOUR COUNTRY AND PUT YOUR LIVES ON THE LINE FOR IT, WHAT COULD BE MORE HONOURABLE?

I'm seriously lost for words on MP Brown piece of sh*t!
How dare he talk about British soldiers like that!
I assume he was only referring to infantry due to you actually needing qualifications to get in he RE or REME etc...?

I got a high score on the BARB test and i could do any job i wanted to.

But i want to be with the elite and see the action, not stuck behind the scenes.

I could do anything and chose the Paras, i didn't choose infantry because i am thick. I am in the same position as alot of others too. Intelligent guys who want the elite and want to get themselves in with the big boys.

Brown MP, TWONK! Army reject.

Nah i know plenty of decent blokes in the infantry, smart as hell and highly respected men.

Its just a big stereotype and I blame the media for the amount of sh1t they publish on TV as an image of the british army, don't know if you ever seen the movie Mark of Cain on Channel 4..... if not take a look at this video, its this sort of sh1t that gives both the british army as a whole and the infantry a bad name:

Send that browne t**t to iraq or afganistan and live with the soldiers out there and go on missions with them and let him have bullets flying over his head.

Then come back and say what he's put, he would have a totally different attitude and say we deserve every penny.

Oh and he compares us to traffic wardens - what the fcuk can a traffic warden do???
And also says we cant do civvie jobs - get a civvie to do our job without training he wouldn't last fcuking 5 minutes.

That wasn't nicely said i would say that was immaturely said :!:

At the end of the day life is about money you cant do most things without it like buying the things in life you need etc
if soldiers where paid more i think they would be better equipt etc as they would have extra money to buy more things they need etc.

And it's not the best career there is m8 if one of the highest guy's in your job is stabbing you in the back with no support.

In my opinion with childish remarks like that i cannot see Des doing his job much longer !! as every part of the army requires brainy people to do very different jobs so you cannot compare Infantry with RA, RAC AND REME or any other part as they all do they're own unique job which makes it the BRITISH ARMY.

Thank god that's an American!
i was actually thinking the same buddy haha


could i also just add and remind everyone that this scumbag Browne has dissed our war hero's of the past :!: just thought i'd like to remind everyone that and that your life is worth the same as the paper you signed your contract on and thats sweet fu ck all :!: so any troops that go AWOL i wouldn't look at them as scum and deserters i would look at them as smart in a sense as they want to be the LABOUR ideal person and do a normal job where they earn money which is worth the job they do :!:
