You can`t get in with any felonies even non-violent ones. If there was a way, I`d like to know.

@19842011 That is a patently false statement. Every enlistee must pass the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). You cannot enlist in the US military without a high school diploma. You can enlist with a GED, but all branches limit the number of enlistees with GEDs, and they have to score higher on the ASVAB than those with high school diplomas.

Can you do that in the US?

In Britain, we can only enlist if we haven`t been away from the country for more than two weeks.

After being out of the states for several years, I`m finally coming back to the US to enlist! I plan on going through airborne school as well!

you probably couldnt find a drop zone big enough to allow the time to get the humvees then the jumpers out

"Anyone know why they didn`t just jump out the back after the humvees?"

They were using static lines with their parachutes. The line is attached to a cable in the aircraft. While I don`t know if the C17 can be configured with static lines at the ramp, I`m guessing even if it could be it wouldn`t be possible while also doing an airdrop.

They use that door because the cord attached to them pulls their chute after they jump.

Dropping it like it`s hot would`ve been the humvees and all 50 guys out in less than 30 seconds. This was just a drop.

It looked dark outside I think I would be freaking out if I couldn`t see where I was landing, but I guess they got that figured out.

If they did that, then there would be no challenge trying to find the humvees in the dark.
