@DeadDrop

Everyone else had such great records so I figured I'd thrown down a character who started off great and turned her to shit lol. (Well, before turning it over again, I suppose. I was close)

It is not unheard of, to have a criminal background and given the option to join the military. When I was in Germany, my roommate came into the Army that way. When he was 19 he stood before a judge in Southern Louisiana facing a drug trafficking conviction. He was also addicted. Basic Training and AIT for 11B infantry is 14 weeks long. It was a fantastic Detoxification for him.

After completing Basic, the Army sends him to Germany. Let me tell you something about Germany -- at least in the mid 1980s. We used to go to Frankfurt the first weekend after getting paid. Within three minutes of coming off the escalators from the Hauptbahnhof (Main Train Station) I had nine Africans try to sell me Hashish. So my roommate drops 100 Deutsch Marks on Hash every month. He smokes it in the room. I may have tried it once, but that was it.

Years later, I'm in the Infantry Officer Basic Course at Ft. Benning, GA and I run into this guy I knew from our old unit in Germany. I ask about my roommate. He tells me the drug dogs and MPs came through the barracks after I left. They found the Hash in his room and he popped hot on a piss test. Apparently, he failed two urinalysis tests, got an Article 15 (Non-judicial punishment) and was kicked out of the army.

Did he go to jail then? I have no idea. I don't know how the Louisiana courts dealt with that one.

Yep, I've heard stories of the craziness and crimes people committed before being given the option to join the Army or go to jail. It's a circumstantial thing really, but I thought it'd be an interesting way to start my character's narrative within the plot of the RP.

Crazy story though @Gunther. A bit humorous and sad all at the same time. Unfortunately, all of my crazy army stories revolve around Dear Johns, Stolen Valor, and arrogance lol. None of the guys I was in with were dealing with drug addictions, at least not to my knowledge. Hell, thinking back on it, I had a relatively boring little contract term during my brief tenure. Although, being a mechanic did afford a few entertaining scenarios, I can't recall anything that really stood out enough for me to reminisce on. That is, outside of basic. Basic is where I had all my memories made, mostly because I didn't know what to expect before going in. And I went through basic in 2010, so I'm sure it was faaar different than what you went through.

Sorry guys, but I think I'm gonna pull out of this one. Among other things, I'm not as confident with military lingo as I thought XD Enjoy!

Before I get any further on the IC, would you guys rather spend some time outside of the shells, making some banter and chit chat, or would you rather get right into it?

Banter outside the shell. Let's develop the characters in their natural form initially.

I, too, agree with the banter outside the shell first. Developing characters is s cornerstone of any good narrative. Let's get some development in before we hit the action.

And we have begun, as requested, I have not put us immediately into our shells. Our characters are currently in the 15-20 minutes before their 'shift' starts. I hope I've described the barracks and transfer rooms clearly enough, but do let me know if there's anything that needs clarification.
