I have the most respect for military. Any branch would be nice. If i Had it to do over I would have joined. If you don't like water maybe another branch.

im thinking either the navy or the air force

I have many friends in the air force who like it. IMO any branch is highly respected. Don't rule out the coast guard that looks like a good gig to me. Either way good luck and god bless.

I know I talked to you on "the other forum", but if you have any specific navy questions, just ask. I'll answer any question you have or find the answer. I'm bored out of my mind sitting in a hotel and will be for the next week and a half. lol

I served in the Navy as well as the Marines. So speaking from personal experience, I hated the Navy due to lack of discipline for 4 years. After my time was up, i separated and joined the Marines. I loved it so much that I stayed for 10 years.

I enlisted in the Navy when I was 17. I graduated HS early and had to get my parents to sign. I didnt see any way to go to college, so I joined for the electronics schools. I went to basic electricity and electronics (BE&E) school and fire control A school in Great Lakes and then to a factory C school for the radar that I worked on. I stayed in for 9 years. The only thing that I didnt like about it was the whole class issue between enlisted and officers. Once I got out, I used the GI Bill to go to college and get the paper (gatech ECE). I always thought that I was a little behind other people my age as far as job level and pay, because of the time in the nav. However, I eventually caught up.

Bottom line, if you intend to make a career out of it, then go for it. But since you are already in college, the other alternative is to follow your dream and put your degree to work. And a little advice, even the saltiest dog gets seasick if it gets rough enough, carry animal crackers and a plastic bag with you to watch...

Good luck.
