what are things i should watch out for?
Is there anything i should know before talking to them?
If you're thinking about enlisting, make sure you read the contract, and that you get anything that''s promised to you (bonuses, station of choice, school option, etc) in writing. As bullshyt and bogus as the recruiters are, the Army is still bound to honor a legal contract.
lol, dont best advice ever!
im just examining options right now..
FUnny talkin to my cousin a second ago, didnt even mention the military
he says yeah, the reason we cant do crime is because thats what society wants us to do, same thing for the military...
(referring to us being raised in abject poverty..)
Talk to a recruiter, of any branch.
All of them have technical jobs (electronics, computers, avionics, etc) that arent combat related yet can give you an advantage when you go looking for a civilian job.
I spent 25 years in, on active and reserve, and loved it.
I went to 35 different countries, saw things I would never have a chance to see as a civilian, and learned a trade that I can use in the civilian world.
Even if you only do one enlistment, you will come out a better person, and you will have a skill that will help you get a job in the civilian world.
Not to mention the GI Bill that you can use for school when you get out.
...and think hard about it before raising your hand to take the oath. If you decide to go - go with your heart in the effort - it helps if you're not just half-stepping.
Another reason to think hard about it is (in my opinion) the military just ain't for everyone.
i would do good in the military, but i would feel like i was taking the easy way out, no bills, free rent food medical etc..
ill think about it a while, i doubt its for me.
