Since my earlier PM to you didn't seem to get through, let me try being a little more directive. Get your act together and start posting like a professional Marine seeking help from a group of very experienced and knowledgeable professionals instead of like a 14-year-old girl texting her school friends. You can start by capitalizing the word "I" every time you use it.

If you can't take the time to express yourself as a professional, to professionals, how can you expect any of us to want to spend our time to answer your questions and help you out? Effective oral and written communication is a cornerstone of a successful military career, and it only gets more important as you gain rank or break into SOF. So it may not seem like it now, but we're doing you a favor.

Thread closed.


Just something for future use.

Brotherhood never was like it;
Friendship is not the word;
But deep in that body of marching men
The soul of a nation stirred.

AusMilitary.com is Australia's leading military discussion forum. Originally formed back in 2004 as AusSpecialForces.com as a forum for, by, and about the Australian Special Forces, the forum has since widened it's scope to include all members and branches of the ADF as well as our honoured guests and allies from overseas. Despite some sections being open to the public, the forum still enjoys the membership and advice of respected members of the Special Forces and Special Operations Forces both local and international, as well as those from elite specialities in the conventional forces. From recruit training right up to SF selection tips - if it's frank and honest advice you're after, you'll find it here.
