"If it were very cold, they would have canceled physical training": about the everyday life of a US Army soldier from the Autobahn

Everyday life in the armies of the countries of the world can be similar to the everyday life in the army of Russia. But, of course, there are differences and peculiarities.


For obvious reasons, making a report by Russian journalists in the military units of the NATO armies is something impossible (as of today). Therefore, Vera (Dera) Poltavtseva, a Russian-speaking serviceman of the US armed forces, will help us at least a little look behind the scenes of American military service. She serves in a unit that would sound like an autobat to us.

Leaving his apartment (a typical American low-budget housing with several tiers with common external spans), the author of the video says that it is not so cold outside now, and if it were cold, physical training would be canceled.

In the US Army, when we drive out in a particular car, we must have the right to that particular car. If I have civil rights, this does not mean that I can now go in an army truck.


The author of the video, in which there are many scenes from ordinary civilian life, says that the US Army has a rule: before being sent on any business trip, a soldier must undergo a fairly extensive medical examination - for sight, hearing, donate blood for analysis, etc. For women- For military personnel, this procedure includes a check for pregnancy.

        On Monday, she said that due to the weather, physical training could be canceled. There may be a misconception that people there are very dependent on comfortable conditions. This is not true.
        Hope I clarified hi

          I would add that the seeming mess should not be misleading - if desired and necessary, these people can be very organized

          Initially, it would be strange to think so, because not everyone in the army is ideologically pumped up Texan marines or the elite, ready to ride through the mountains for days in full body kit.
          Most of them are ordinary staff, cooks, instructors, technicians, accountants, drivers, pilots, etc.
          There is no sense in freezing them or somehow gesturing on the PHY. There is no practical sense, and hard training without injuries and sores is impossible.

      Seems like a good girl. A girl is like a girl, but such lovely people bombed peaceful Belgrade, Baghdad, Tripoli ... And, in fact, just like that! That's all you need to know about the US Army!

        Before being sent on any business trip, a soldier must undergo a fairly extensive medical examination - for sight, hearing, donate blood for analysis, etc. For female military personnel, this procedure also includes a pregnancy check..

        Well, this is BEFORE a business trip, and if she gets pregnant there?

          It may very well be that since the army pays for the trip, it imposes certain restrictions, in particular on sex life.
          So if she gets pregnant there, she will have big problems)

        And if you imagine that there was a war between the United States and Russia, it seems like a Russian and will have to kill Russians. And there are in fact a lot of Russians in the US Army or those with Russian roots.

          and not only Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, Serbs and Indians with Arabs and Afro, there is a multinational nation there! And when they received a passport, they all swore an oath to protect the nation and country from external and internal enemies, any smart person does it before obtaining the right to US citizenship! despite his ethnos and religion ...

            It's like giving up your last name (as some do), i.e., your code and ancestors. And they are ready then, purely hypothetically, if there is a war to fight against their country and people. This is their choice. hi

              and if they already feel like Americans in a few ... tz years !? Plus citizenship and oath !? So they will already fight, as citizens of their country and nation, under oath !? What code are you talking about !? Ancestors no longer exist, they are everything in the next world ... what concrete relation do they have to the mundane at the present time to the problems of living descendants! ???

                Everything is clear with you. Ivans who do not remember kinship or mankurt, this applies not only to such Russians, but also to others. To fight under the oath of your new nation, against your former ones .... If you think this is all right and normal, this is your choice, like theirs. Of course there are no ancestors, why remember them and their deeds, buried my mother and father, and forgot ... All the best, you hi

                  pulled out of context, plus maximalism in relation to ancestors, which are not here and now with the assumption of forgetting the memory of them, it is clear that they answered me and in what form, and what was written about earlier, UP !? And why "Ivans", or do you think any "Ivanov", only Russian ??? But what about, Sergei, Andrei, Maxims and others .... names ???

                    Have you forgotten about Petya ... and have you already dug up the ancestors? I wrote everything to you, if you don’t know how to read your problems, you don’t have to crawl and invent something about Ivan and something else, if you live in the USA, which is most likely your choice, as well as the choice of those who are for obtaining citizenship goes to kill and bomb Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Serbia ... thousands of kilometers away to protect the United States and the American nation from enemies, to become this very nation. Goodbye. I repeat it a second time.

                      even if so, so what, does it cause ethnic enmity in you, or what and how !? But in the US, there are no other peoples and their representatives, and they do not consider themselves Americans! ?? Just like in Russia, Russians with a place of birth, in other countries, as an example ???

    Yes! This is not this for you ....
    NATO Marines training in northern Norway, in the Finnmark region, refused to perform a combat training mission in the absence of insulated toilet cubicles

    The soldiers of Germany, called up for the recent exercises of the North Atlantic Alliance, prematurely left the place of training maneuvers in close proximity to Russia due to the fact that they were not paid overtime. The German military explained their demarche by exceeding the working time limit per week.

    The author of the video, in which there are many scenes from ordinary civil life

    A lot? There are only such scenes and there are + scenes in the car.

    The story about how her husband repaired the car, how she was taken away, how she paid the fine and repairs - is this all for what? What is this video about?

    Guys, well, here about the army, only that it appears in the frame in military uniform.

    PS
    I cannot understand former compatriots who go to serve in a foreign army.
    I can't even look at it neutrally.

      And what's not clear here, it's just one of the ways to get citizenship. I don’t know in the USA, I don’t want to climb in the net, but in France 5 years and a citizen of France.
