In his defense, the Army does not have High Year-Tenure cutoffs like the USAF. They do, but the times are different. Even so, its possible his mother was prior enlisted, making her an OE-5, which would grant her an additional 10 years service time.
HOWEVER, he is full of shit, we have established this. Garner, My father is a Retired USAF OE-6 (Full-bird Colonel, 1 rank higher than your mother, Garner), on 90% disability, IN the state of Texas...
And he clears 7k, but nowhere near 10. So shut your mouth Garner. A-We all know you are full of BS. B-ALOT of us here are in the military, you cant BS people who make a ****in' living knee-deep in BS every day. C-No retired military person would EVER give their child free reign over their finances, nor would they just give them everything they want. You dont get what you want in the military, unless you ****ing EARN it. If I cant have a 60,000 dollar Ram Laramie Longhorn, my 16 year old CERTAINLY will not, unless he can afford it himself. This is the mentality of EVERY person I have ever met in the military. Why? Because values like this are instilled in every servicemember who served honorably. You are, for lack of a better word, brainwashed into a morally sound way of thinking. If someone does not have values and morals, they usually wont make it to Lt Col. Someone will wipe the floor with them before then. FWIW (not that its your business) My truck was purchased used, in 2010, its paid for and I am 26. AND I AM DAMN PROUD of that fact. I served 2 tours in Iraq, and I am in Afghanistan now, so that snot nosed little shits like you can sleep safely at night. And I am not the only one on this board with the same or more deployments behind them. So keep it up. You just look foolish.
What really kills me is that if I had gotten a brand new truck as a 16 year old, I would have been STOKED, and totally happy with it. Seems to be this guy is the type that would tell his mom to take it back because it was a Chevy.
