The military does not take everyone, even the most qualified cannot get in just because the military has a limit on how many people can enter.

The only easier access to federal gov jobs is 5 points for being a veteran, 10 points for being a disabled veteran (I think 30%+), a person still needs to be minimally qualified and still have an overall score higher than other candidates, which just being in the military does not get, it takes a little more effort than that.

Veterans still have a higher unemployment rate than the average US unemployment rate, so the fact of being in the military does not turn into an automatic job, there are numerous other factors involved.

Joining the military just to get a job after is like saying go to college to get a job; it is much more complicated than that.

So now the US government is trolling the forum with their military recruiting officers?

Umm, no. Military recruiters may not be rocket scientists, but they tend to be able to communicate fairly well in complete sentences with better spelling and grammar than the OP.

I'm still wondering what "qualmed" is supposed to mean.

I can't. I'm irrationally afraid of leaving this earth. Also I get grossed out by a lot of things with the human body.

That's a fair point...

One of my brother's friends joined the military in '06. Was deployed to Iraq, if I recall correctly. He's easily paranoid ever since he got back. He tried to attend community college but ended up dropping out and now is a waiter at Hometown Buffet.

Not everyone is appropriate for military service, even if they are fit.

Many people are lovers, not fighters, and just don't care to be involved in the combat biz.

And of course, there are limited number of Buck Private positions available, it can't be the answer for everyone.

Is English your second language?

Surely they could have come up with a more effective username.
