Brings me back to when I left Perth for Katoomba (Australian army training center) Although I didn't get a hot girl like Cadance to see me off. ;-;
Also, isn't West Point an officer academy? You know, where people who like to be addressed as "sir" go to learn how to tell real soldiers how to do their jobs? 
Then again, this was from some jarheads in Afghanistan; so I'd trust it as far as I can throw them.
Very good though, captures the moment perfectly.

Canon ships are the only ships I ship.
Even though I don't ship any ships of any kind, not even on a ship.

Cannon ships are also cool, because those ships have cannons, and cannons are cool.

I remeber this. When I left for basic, it was hard for me to leave but really hard for my family.

Shinning Armor: I will see you again when I am a soldier.

Cadance: When I will see you again, I will start wedding preparation.

Twilight: When I see you again, I will be princess student and national hero who saved princess banished sister and who defeated god of chaos.

Mother: Oh Twilight, you have so cute imagination, and you too Cadance, so adorable.

Greetings! Was sent here by your good friend :iconbirdco:

He said you did some amazing artwork, and he wasn't lying! :)

This is certainly very moving.

I may have seen some of your artwork before(either through one of :iconbirdco: 's links, or if you posted it to one of the groups I belong to).

I also hear you're in the Army now. All I can say is "Congratulations! All the best!" and :icondashsaluteplz:

:)

*Goes to add to watch list*

I look forward to seeing what else you come up with. :)

I am sure it will be. But let's be real now; it's going to be REAL HARD too.

But of course, it will be all worth it.

I honestly thought Army Basic Combat Training was too easy, though.
Reply
:iconpinehas:
Pinehas Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012
Ah, good to hear that it was easy for you.

I think my time would be hard, only because everyone else around me who went through (I said this before, but in Korea military service is mandatory) mostly says it was really hard.

My prolonged exposure to likes of Black Hawk Down and Modern Warfare, however, makes me want to serve in a special force, like Korean Naval Special Warfare Command. Currently working my ass off. XP

But of course, who knows what is going to happen in the future.

:iconmyminiatureequine:
MyMiniatureEquine Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah. I guess it must seem difficult to most people because most don't wish to do it. People who do, especially those who want to go into special forces, usually already know what to expect, so they're more mentally prepared.

I never wanted to quit, no matter how bad it felt, because I wanted it, and I knew it was going to make me stronger in the end.

Special forces is probably too tough for me though, because I don't exercise enough.

I am just wondering; are you qualified to apply for Ranger School?

MyMiniatureEquine Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If I go to Airborne School, I will be. First, I need to get in shape. The hardest part about Airborne School is the Physical Training. People who have high PT scores are the ones they want most to go Airborne and Ranger.

I wish I had done something like this before I went to basic, but unfortunately FIM didn't exist yet :/ Anyways, this was well done and reminds me of when I left. I also want to say, from one veteran to another, thank you for all that you've done and will do. My dad use to be in the Army, so I know what you guys go through. Keep it up and LEAD THE WAY!

Thank you!

Although my departure wasn't quite exactly like this, it amuses me now because it reminds me a lot of a cadence.

"Your momma was there when you left!"
"You're right!"
"Your papa was there when you left!"
"You're right!"
"Your brother was there when you left!"
"You're right!"
"Your sister was there when you left!"
"You're right!"
"Your momma, your papa, your brother, your sister, you aunt, your uncle, your gramma, your grampa, your cat, and your dog were all there when you left!"
"You're right!"
