Thats true, US military is harder, but it depends on where in the military in Taiwan you are. For example, some marines from Taiwan are trained here in the US. Pay grade is higher for career and even higher for the ARPU. Conscription pay has been known to suck throughout the history of military. But Congrats, I can see that the KMT's has stopped their brainwashing tactics in the military where they make you recite that the Communists are the enemy and we are the good guys.

Drink till you drop! :bravo:

1. Capitalize the "M" in Marines. It's the proper name of the service and is by tradition, capitalized.

2. What R.O.C. Marines go to the U.S. for training? The only link I could find was about Sergeant Wu being the first female NCO to complete the U.S. Marine Corps training. Can you provide some more info on the subject for me? It's piqued my curiosity.

3. The last message in the thread was almost three years ago, so why grave dig? Wouldn't a PM be more appropriate?

I think the only thing the conscripts will be expected to do is maintain order in event of a war or other national emergencies. I don't think they are expected to see any real combat since we have never been trained for them. Besides if the PRC attacks there isn't a whole lot we can do other than surrender.... their military is powerful enough to get the US concerned I don't think the ROC is capable of defending against them. Perhaps only hold on long enough for the US to provide aid. Also it only takes a couple of nukes to end it all in 10 minutes...

No offence there rahimiiii, but do they make you practice surrendering?

A young Taiwanese friend told me of the run away training they do. It's not exactly a surrender as you are supposed to turn around after a few seconds (assuming you haven't been shot) and then return fire but I guess we all know what it really prepares you for. :lol:

Remember that US general who came here in the late 90s to inspect and advise: "We came expecting Israel; we found Panama.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

Super-congrats on finishing what was probably the longest year-and-a-half of your whole life!

Have you ever thought about posting your experiences on a blog or something like that? Sounds like it could be a really interesting read.
