So you start a thread the US Military will discharge you for medical reasons and the first thing on your mind is what's the Riding like?:badteeth:...how about looking for a Job first. :idea::badteeth::helmet:

Bloo's responces NEVER cease to amaze me!!! I love it!! BUT i do wish the OP the best of luck "after" the service and hope things go in your favor as much as possible. my brother in law went thru a similar situation last year and he came out pretty good when everything was said and done.

ya, i know the roads are limited... id still find a way to make it work.. then again i love to hunt and ride atv's...

and IMO we are overtaxed in the east compared to most places in the west. NY is insane, im sure the DC area is just as bad..

Do remember this is a motorcycle board, not Monster.com:crackup:

Most Ex-mil guys have no problem with the resume', where else can you say...

"qualified to operate all steam plant, hydrolic, pnumatic, and and electrical systems associated with a naval nuclear power plant"...

at age 24.:wink:

they been getting alot of snow in the MD / D.C. area last few winters, my sister lives out that way

Not as much as Alaska though I would suppose.

Don't forget with the new GI bill you can go to school for 3 years and they pay your housing at single rate SSgt
WOW!!!!! I bet many take advantage of that offer.....never had anything like that when I was in, in fact I got nothing for 9yrs of service after I left Active Duty, so I joined the National Guard and finished another 11yrs for 20yrs of total service and Retired now.....now I get to use the Commissary for that and cheap food prices but no check in my 40s. :lol:

LOL actually i will recieve bah (basic allowance for housing) for a e-5 w/dep. so ill be getting what i get now except in md...and i believe the bah rate is somewhere around 2000$ so pretty much enough to cover my mortgage. my wife will be working also kinda like a trade off of sorts...

i think ill find away to convince her i need a 2nd and more up to date bike lol
