    Are you kidding? What the hell do you think basic training is for? Basic infantry training. In the end everyone is infantry. If you can't shoot well enough you are discharged. What does this tell you?

    You really need to learn about the military.

    The military does not "hire" anyone. We have an all volunteer military. If people don't join up, they get no one.

    Man, please learn a little about the military before making such obviously uninformed comments.

    You've actually been in the service, so you don't know anything about it...

    They would kick his ass for a statement like that.

    It would be funny to watch him get a beat down from a Marine "file clerk."

    I spent 7 years in the Army. I qualified with an M16 during basic training. About 2 years later, we were taken out to a range for less than a half hour. An instructor went over the basics of the M16 and then we were each given a 20-round magazine and told to fire until it was empty. The only stipulation was that we don't shoot the wooden frames that held the targets. The funny thing is, there were no targets. After that, I never fired an M16 ever again. So much for annual qualification.

    How would you like me for a foxhole buddy? "hey dude, which end do I point at the bad guys?"

    The Army is not the Marines. My statement stands.

    No offense, but I have worked in extremely close quarters with male cops on the force with me. The wives don't have a say. And neither do the husbands.

    They aren't the ones hired to do the job.

    You do not "forget" how to shoot a rifle. And yes, they are similar because everyone is in the end infantry. From the lowest ranked "clerk" to the highest ranking general.

    You can stand by it all you like, it does not make it correct.

    I don't know if you served or not, it certainly does not seem like it.

    And a combat infantry person would kick your ass if you called a file clerk combat infantry.

    I already related my experiences with an M16 while I was in.
