That's great to hear! It really must be an awesome experience to work with such an impressive thing as a Main Battle Tank on a daily basis (although field maintenance must be a pain in the ass, too ;) ). Are you on a 4 years contract or do you plan to stay in the Corps for longer period of time? I'm doing quite fine with my studies. If everything turns out as planned, I'll graduate in summer with a Bachelor of Arts in History and Prehistoric Archeology. The interesting part will be the question, whether or not I manage to qualify for the "Military Studies" graduate classes in Potsdam.
hey man, its been a LONG long time since ive been here. But yes. Life as a Marine Tanker is everything i thought it would be. Though i must say some of the surrounding things to do get agitating at times, the job of TANKING is awesome. how have you been?
Long time no see! How are you doing? Still enjoying your new life as a Marine? Everything as you expected or do you want to choke your recruiter by now? p-)
yeah, i just got back yesterday. its been a trip. :)
Hey! How are you doing? Are you back again or still busy with being yelled at?
Good Morning! I just read the recruits thread and it's good to see you fighting so hard to become a Marine. Keep that spirit up :D Do you plan to continue your studies after your military service? If I remember correctly you studied history.
Oh, and yes, it's Grey Knights. Although part of the Ordo Malleus, I totally like their unshakable faith, their tenacity and their awesome prayers. :)
damn it, MPN keeps on crashing on me, this is the 3rd time writing this message.

A LOT has changed in the past week. But basically the Officer route is shut down for me, but im going to go on ahead and become a Marine. (check out the Official New Recruits thread)
Hey, I finally found my favorite Space Marine "chapter". Let's see if you're smart enough to figure it out (google is a no go ;) ).
"I am the Hammer,
I am the point of His sword.
I am the tip of His spear.
I am the gauntlet about His fist.
I am His sword just as He is my armour,
I am His wrath just as He is my zeal.
I am the Hammer! He is my Shield!"
Btw. when are you scheduled for boot camp (or OCS?)?
Got it, thanks! Nice Death metal \m/
Ah, well its the song World Eater by Bolt Thrower, though the problem is there is a version with the wrong album art, and then there are versions that slow down the whole song entirely, which ruins the intensity. Check it out if you can, and check out the artwork also on google, it fits the music well IMO.
