Annoying they can be, but they will really help you play the rest of the game better, just as boot camp is where recruits start.
Sorry,
John

you get your certifications/badges from these training courses
without those badges your online abilities will be severely limited...
just like in the real army if you failed those tests... they wont let
you loose with the equipment, if you cannot use it effectively.

i cannot tell you how many times i have gotten within 1 or 2 shots
of getting my advanced marksmanship badge...
it is so frustrating...

thanks,

One of the reasons that Americas Army is free is because it is created and supported by the Army. It's almost like a training video for the military.

We're going to make the merry-go-round go faster, so everyone needs to hang on tighter-just to keep from being thrown to the wolves.

well... did your friends take the ASVAB test?
ASVAB Test website...
that also is a recuitment tool used by the military...
we were not told exactly what the test was about... just pulled
out of classes for the afternoon and given this test. we were told
it was a general skills aptitude test. i took it and scored around
a 97 percentile. that guaranteed that i had each military branch
actively recruiting me.

btw... i don't remember anyplace in the game where you was
asked about your real world address... so i really dont think
it was the game at all... (of course i could be mistaken).

sorry if this makes little sense... i need sleep now. haha. :wave:

AA is a great game...i've been playing for well over a year now and no it does not contain any spyware.
Bypassing the training is just cheating. You'll feel better about yourself for completing it
on your own. (and you'll be a better player)
My current squad is actively recruiting so if you think you have what it takes visit

Are you sure? cuz I dont want no more recruitment letters at my doorstep (i'm not saying that i'm not patriotic) it's just i feel war and killing peeps is unjustly, and immoral.

If you go to the AA site, they link to various downloads of the most current version.
