You wouldn't download a T. Rex, would you?

Fuck yes, I would.

Myself and a couple other guys in our battalion were selected to go Old Guard, but of the 5-8 of us they only picked one, who wasn't me. I always wondered how my life would have been different had I gotten in. I did 2 tours in the Middle East instead -_-. Hopefully you've enjoyed your position, what's the biggest perk in your opinon, biggest con?

Lol, I feel the barracks. My barracks in AIT and some extra training were at Ft. Gordon, near where a lot of military culinary stuff is done. It was amazing. Steak, Lobster, etc. Got used to it, then shipped straight to the sand box and lived on MRE's for a year and some change. What's the promotion structure like? I know in my MOS (94E) when I enlisted the promos were pretty quick because it was a pretty new MOS and wasn't super saturated, but by the time I got around to getting promotions getting past E6 was basically impossible.

I assume to be an MP your hand to hand had to be pretty top notch just in case you came across someone who was MAC 4, for example. Now, I only got up to MAC 3 and felt like I could take on the world, but 2 of my instructors, SFC Fortune and Sgt Garcia would kick the ever loving shit out of me every single time.

Anyways, I always wanted to know 2 things:

Do MP's train in some form of MAC that isn't taught elsewhere, or were my trainers just that good?

And, what are the best and worst places to be deployed to as an MP? (One Sgt said that you had to 'earn' the term 'cagekicker' by being in Gitmo, so I assume it was rough?)
