I'm done with my ROC military service!!!!

Postby rahimiiii » 13 Aug 2005, 00:29

On Monday I get to walk out of the hellhole I've been in for a year in a half with a discharge paper. Man that place must be the worst hellhole in the world. For some reason ROC Military officers acts like they dont even know what they want. They will tell you to do this, then a few days (or hours) later tell you to do something completely opposite.

...... Plus (from talking to most enlisted guys) most feel that they would rather be in the US military (even though their training is harder) because they feel that there are always ways to get promoted, like an NCO can become officers if he performs well, but in Taiwan that is impossible. Also most joined up because of money, or "just want to get it over with (waited years for draft that never came...)", but almost nobody joined up because they love their country and want to defend it. I just think the rates of CO's getting killed by their subordinates (or vice versa) is going to be sky high in event of a war.......

Yea after Monday I will have paid my debt to my country (whatever the hell that is....... )

Congratulations and good on you for doing your duty. Taiwan's position is precarious, and although the military is an inefficient organization and wastes a lot of its resources, there is no doubt that it is necessary to Taiwan's peace and prosperity. You have also made your contribution. Come to a Happy Hour, and I'll buy you a beer. :bravo: :thumbsup:

rahimiiii -
Congrats on your service and welcome back to civilian life.
Be proud that you did what a lot of no-nut wussies fear having to do. Its over - good job.

You are correct about the difference in US Mil service and Taiwan service.
As to the "...the rates of CO's getting killed by their subordinates (or vice versa)..." part of your post - No one really expects many in the Taiwanese Military to have any weapons in their hands if the PLA comes to visit.

Goos luck in your future.

Really, my wife's brother was promoted from a private to an officer after being invited to take and pass the officer training test this year.. and he doesnt have anything higher than senior higher school quals.

Actually you can as a private if you train as officer you become one, but NCO can never become officers... But I think that NCO should be based on merit, because I've seen too many NCO that shouldnt be one.

Hey man congrads!
I respect the fact that you stepped up to the plate and did your duty. I know so many rich momas boys who buy their way ouy with trips every 3 months. They are also the first to yell "I am a taiwanese! This is my country!"
wankers :wink:

Even if your tour of duty was a waste of time, you did what was asked of you.
:notworthy:
