The Pros and Cons to a combat deployment


I am NOT HAPPY with their services – If its cheap , its all cheap – No quality – It has been a nightmare working with the #hostgator folks , their pricing was competitive , thinking this we invested to buy with them. Then we realised a lot of things are not provided in your package[your devs will go nuts] – they dont mention what they block and most of it is important for a lot of people . They also have the tendency of changing the packages whenever they feel like , I haven’t met one decent tech support person – we had to troubleshoot ourself . We are looking to move away from them and not to do any more business with them. Our opinion after workng with #hostgator is that if its cheap , means its all cheap. So we are moving to someone who cares and works with us, rather than drones. Riyas, Qatar, javacomtech.com

    Chris, this has to be one of your best videos. It brought tears to my eyes, when you described the landing in Texas! You all are so greatly appreciated, especially in times like these. I thank you for your service. Keep making these great videos.

    My dream is to join and do special forces and I always say I’d rather die than come home injured, bad mindset?

    I feel like any job in the military, combat or not, has got to be better than a typical minimum wage job.

    and as I've been called a troll many times over about, keep in mind that at least nine months, we generally have the longest deployments of all branches. even marines generally don't have deployments as long as we do. so thats something to consider especially if you have dependents and worried about being away from them for the longest time periods. special forces get six months but they are on rotations where they have to deploy again every six months.
    You also may not do your MOS much on deployments. I've known people who were not EOD's being assigned details of looking for roadside bombs, for example.

    A combat deployment will be a dream come true

    Hey Chris I was never deployed but I know that feeling when traveling through an airport in uniform. Some people wanted to come up and just shake our hands and thank us for our service. A few people (trolls) would shout things like “Bush Supporter!” or other “Baby killer!” It can definitely go both ways. To those haters I would always say “you can say whatever you want about us. Either way, I will defend your right to free speech regardless if you support me or not.”

    How lenient are they when you are deployed to another country that is not a combat zone such as Germany or Korea? Is it pretty much the same as being stationed somewhere like Texas?

    your trip to Afghanistan didn't count as a combat deployment?

    Hey Chris! Just a question in general. Do you know if it is possible for a soldier who's generally a Fobbit (such as myself, I'm an analyst) to go on patrols outside the wire? I know that combat is at an all time low atm, but I want to participate in those types of operations. (I'm considering reclassing, but I'll likely deploy before I get the chance.)

    I think Id like to see a video from you about fellow Soldiers who actually took someones life during a combat deployment and their coping mechanisms. I think thats a very serious topic I havent seen yet

    As of right now 6 months into deployment
    Been to Syria for a month and Iraq the rest so far

    Pros
    -Tax free pay
    Basically double what I get paid in the states
    -The sense of brotherhood since you are around people from your company going through the suck together
    -You gain appreciation for the little things you got back in the states, like certain foods, good WiFi, predictable schedule etc
    -Combat patch to cover up that slick sleeve
    -You are held to a higher standard when you get your Combat patch, even more so if you get a CIB
    -lots of gym time if you arent currently going on missions

    If you do not have a dfac it’s going to suck extra hard, but if you don’t have a dfac you also get per diem so it makes it worth it

    Cons
    -Details, tons of connex details, layouts, Tent building and tear down details, I am going to have nightmares about reading off serial numbers from the SI Connex.
    -daily efficiency training
    -Cafes or restaurants in the Middle East do not hold decent health standards
    -Barely anywhere to check your SRB or MyPay so I’d recommend buying a cac reader

    PS, marines are wafflestompers.

    One of my moms co-workers was actively deployed and he I not the same because he got his entire platoon wiped out in front of him and he was the only one left in his convoy and he had to return to base by himself

    Can you volunteer for a combat deployment in any branch of the military?
