London. The city with the big balls.
My conservative smart choice would be Prison Guard stateside in the U.S, My cool option would be flying in Any air force, and or being a Tank commander in a Tiger or Tiger II.
I'd rather be in combat anywhere than a guard anywhere.
Counting mess kits in Anchorage sounds fine to me.
I would choose the U.S. Navy as a gunners mate on a battleship.
"The USN needs more cannon-cockers! Enlist today!"
Only if they bring back the battleships! Not that many cannon today. As for WW2, American BBs seem to be a place that one could do useful combat service and be relatively safe. (Except at Pearl on Dec. 7th, that is.)
They were hard, that's true. And the fast BBs were in the shit with the carriers, so life could be ... exciting.
Sounds good to me, but counting mess kits in a factory in Iowa sounds even better.
I always thought about being an RAF Bomb Aimer. I could pay back those rotten Nasties for London and Coventry, with tenfold interest.
Having six years to think about it, I can only conclude I was right the first time when I chose the same tough option as Captain Kevin Darling.
"There's nothing cushy about life in the Women's Auxiliary Balloon Corps."
Realistic position choice: CBI nurse vs Unrealistic position: OSS/spy. As a spy, I would have been dead the first week. I can't lie for squat. Lol
You and Chris Pine.
