5 Reasons you should not join the military

July 24, 2019



what's up YouTube welcome back to another military Monday where every Monday I'm putting out good content about the military in this video I want to show you guys five reasons you should not join the military so first off I want to say the military is not for everybody some people are not meant to be in the military I think it's like 1% of the nation is in the military so you know that's a small percent I might be wrong but I know it's a small percent of you that's in the military so if it's not meant for you is not meant for you don't take it no kind of way don't take it personally this is my opinion and I want to show you guys what I think people should not do if they think about joining the military if it's not gonna be cut out for them or not alright reason number one I think you should not join the military you should not join the military if you cannot adapt to change so being in the military you travel a lot you deployed a lot you move a lot so I was in Norfolk Virginia my first command right now I'm in San Diego California my next command could be in Italy Japan Hawaii it could be in a whole different country so I have to learn to adapt to different environments if you used to that same environment all the time and you can't really change if you can't if it's hard for you to meet people talk to people of a different race of ethnic group it's gonna be hard for you to adapt in the military so we deploy a lot as well we go to different countries where the food is different if it's hard for you to try new food eat new food is gonna be hard for you to be in the military as well so adapting the change is like I feel like it is my first number one reason you should not join a military cuz it's always changing you're always moving and there's people of all walks of life different religions different customs that you work with and you had to kind of understand where they're coming from you got to understand come to agreement when you're working with them if you have your differences so if you can't not see you so we're gonna start by side with a different person you should not join the military alright reason number two I think you should not join a military you should not our military if you have a hard time being away from friends and family I have a lot of seniors that got out the Navy because they was away from their mom and dad for too long it was a way for their friends and family for too long cuz you being in the military you always on the appointment you always doing work ups out to sea in the field no matter what the case is you're always going so you it's gonna be a lot of times you're gonna be a missing out on birthdays holidays funerals graduations anything like that you're gonna miss out on because the mission comes first so it's gonna be hard for you to take leave and go back home for these events because you're in the military so if it's just hard for you to be away from friends and family that I don't think should join the military because it's gonna fit your work take you it's gonna fit your career because you're always thinking about going home it's always gonna be on your mind so I feel like you shouldn't be in the military if that's a big issue of yours that's a big deal you're so a good example of mine it was a guy that had a child and he went on deployment a couple of months later so when he got back from deployment his son didn't know who he was because he was gone so long his son was at a young age where he didn't remember him when he got back but his son was comfortable around other people but when he came to him he was kind of hesitant about coming to his dad cuz he didn't know who he was and I feel like man and I kind of hit home because I just had a daughter and how would I feel if my daughter didn't come to me she was scared of me because I was on the point and I missed out a good amount of her life growing up or she started walking and talking I wasn't there for her because I was on deployment so I think that that's a hard part for me when you come to being in the military you miss out on a lot of things I like rule number three if you cannot stay away from drugs you should not join the military so the military has a zero-tolerance drug policy at any given time you can be conducted urinalysis what you have to take a drug test no matter what rank you are no matter how long you've been in if the military feel like they want to draw a test you that can and it can be at random and given time it could be on Monday you have a urinalysis on to that you're giving it none of your analysis so no matter what it is or what type of price you are you can be conducted your analysis so if you can't at the drop of a dime stop doing drugs you should not join the military and I don't want to see you guys join the military and get a dishonorable discharge because you was doing drugs you pot loan your dad says and now you can't find work out in the civilian world because as you know when you sound when you feel I have a case they asked having been in the military or not they want to know if you've been honorable discharge of dishonorable discharge from the military so you pop it on a drug test that's an automatic disqualification from your job that you trying to apply for from being kicked out of the military so I don't want to see that happening you guys so if you have a issue of doing drugs just give it time maybe you will find yourself getting up that sooner that you can join the military on when you're ready to go join the military but don't join if you have a habit of smoking weed or doing whatever drug that's out there right now because you don't want to get kicked out the military so rule number four if you can't take orders or you have a hard time buying their tongue you should not join the military so in the military from e1 all the way up to the Admiral everyone takes orders so if you're one of those people is that you can't follow order you should not go in the military because someone's always gonna be telling you what to do no matter what rank you are who you are how long you been in somebody gonna be telling you what they're doing you gotta listen to it so you have to learn when to bite your tongue and when to speak your mind cuz some it is times when you can't speak your mind and it's times where you just have to shut up listen and take orders you have to kind of find that damn line between that and it's a lot of times where I've seen sailors get into a lot of trouble because they're not used to taking orders they're not used to buying a time so they always going back and forth with a higher-ranking person and that can get you into a lot of a lot of trouble so just make sure if you're thinking about joining the military you kind of have to watch your mouth you kind of have to bite your tongue at sometimes because it's the military that's how we have structure we have ranks and we have people that's telling you what to do that gives you orders and you have to listen to them if you don't like it may rain and you could be the one giving orders but I'm gonna tell you this when you're a one to eat three those like the worst time all you do is take an order all you do is listen to people in and it's hard for you not to give your opinion because you you've been in for what two three three years and you just have to go with what someone's telling you to do no matter what the situation is so if biting your tongue or having a hard time taking orders is not for you I wouldn't join the military because these are gonna lead you to whole lot of trouble alright the fifth reason I feel like people should not join the military if you have a hard time waking up early so in the military you wake up early so me being a cook most of the times I get up at 0 3:30 because I have to be at work at 0 4:45 just so we can have breakfast ready for 0 600 for the crew so being a cook you get up early even engineers and people on a flight day you get up early because engineers it could be a cassadee engineer occasion we have to be at work early or you might be doing drills we have to be at work early by like 4 o'clock in the morning on a flat crew you can begin up early for work because you got a helo coming in down or aircraft coming inbound where you have to be up early to take care of that issue so in the military you have to be up early most job to be up by zero six honey you have to be at work at zero seven hundred so and the military is one of those jobs where you have to get up early all the time and that's an issue for you I would enjoin the military if you like to sleep in late to like it's not like a nine-to-five job when you get up at 8 o'clock be at work at 9:00 or even later you have to be at work early for the military so I wouldn't join the military if that's an issue for you oh alright that concludes this video I hope it helped you guys out like always mesh you like

    Thanks for the video and your little girl is adorable! I have a question: can someone be over-qualified to join the military? I have a master’s degree in Industrial Engineering and someone who served said I was overqualified and should do something else.

    You have a beautiful daughter 💕 Another reason is if you do not like to stay in shape (exercise). Some branches workout more than others, do a lot more running, etc., but staying within your weight standards can be difficult for some.

    Number 6. Depending on your MOS you shouldn't join the military if you're not willing to tear up your body. I knew plenty of people that went in and just after three years either tore up their knees or their back
