I'm in the MP Corps. Don't do it.

All the MP Corps is now is glorified infantry. Especially with the Army handing all the Law & Order MP jobs over to the DoD Police. Sooner or later, there will be no L&O MP's.. it'll all be Combat Support.

I know I joined the MP Corps to do POLICE stuff.. and now if/when we deploy, we'll be running convoy security, or sitting on gates/checkpoints. NOT what I signed up to do. But it is what it is now.

And Basic? Pfffft. Basic is a cake walk. Especially now. It was cake in 09 when I went through also but I've heard it's only gotten easier.

EDIT: I just now read the above post and saw you're not MP.. lol. So disregard most of my post.
