What military branch/job would suit me best and why did you choose yours? It sounds like you are definetely on top of it as far as checking out all of your options, that is good. I joined the Service or in my case the services, Army and Marines. I joined for the adventure and action of it like most young men do. It was tough but I enjoyed it, especially the Infantry which is what the service is all about, to me the Infantry was filled with all kinds of good things and it taught me alot about myself and gave me a confidence that has given me many things in return. Later in my career I went into aviation maintainence, helicopters, air crews, etc If you are looking for excitement, there are Army,Marine, Navy and Air Force Special Ops, these fields teach you about leadership which is what being a officer is all about and by being enlisted you will also have a heads up above your fellow officers by being former enlisted and have the respect of your subordinates. The choice is yours, there is always a risk to anything in life especially in combat arms but then again none of us is gaurantied tomorrow. Go for it, go for broke. Don't let should've, could've be part of your vocabulary! Good Luck Okay, first let me say that I'm a Navy recruiter, so my opinion is obviously biased, but . . . I'm a nuclear operator in the Navy. I picked the Navy because they called me first, and I picked the Nuclear Field because they said, $12015 bonus! I have never regretted either of those decisions, and I've come to appreciate Navy life and the benefits of being in a highly marketable field. It's been hard work, sometimes really hard, sometimes frustrating, but always challenging and never boring. I don't think that we all magically pick the right branch and the right job. I believe that whichever one you choose, if you work hard you will take a lot of pride in your choice, your job, and the people with whom you will share some very unique experiences. It's understandable that you're sweating this decision; it can be overwhelming to have so many wide-open doors in front of you. Try to remember that a lot of people are never in the situation you're in right now, and appreciate the moment! Note: A degree DOES NOT automatically qualify you to be an officer!! Being an officer in the military is like applying for any other job; you can meet all the requirements and they can still say, No thanks! unless you do 4 years of ROTC. I only say that b/c it is a very common misconception. :) I wanted to see the world so I joined the USN. They offered me a job that included Air Traffic control and working with computers and that was just what I wanted. You've done well on your Asvab and will have lots of choices. I suggest you choose the Navy's Advanced programs which includes nuclear power. If you can handle being a nuke, you can handle being an officer and the navy does have programs in place to promote from within our ranks. The Navy will guarantee in writing your first choice of job your qualified for. With the Air force being a smaller service and having limited openings they give you only one of four choices. I served two enlistments in the Air Force (7.5 years) in Security Forces, and then 14.5 years as a Naval officer. Security Forces will be boring to you. Sitting eight hours at a gate, or driving around jets in a truck, is just plain boring. Remember, I did this job. You don't go into being a military officer, in one career field, with the intentions of switching to another field. For instance, starting as an intelligence officer and switching to pilot. It costs a lot of money to train an officer, and a lot of mentoring goes into it. If you want to be a pilot, go for pilot. And, if you plan to be a pilot, go straight to college. There are age limits for pilots. Here is just something else to consider. If you have your heart set on joining the military and obviously you have a high enough score to do pretty much any job in any branch that you would like, if you get bored with that job then you always have the choice to get out after your 4 years if you decide and have you mgi bill to help pay for your schooling on something else you would rather do. If you decide your joining for a career you don't really have to decide that until you get to the end of your first contract. and a boatswains mate with a 92 asvab score is out of the question. just saying. ;) With a 92 on the ASVAB, you qualify for almost everything. If your goal is to become an officer, work on your degree first. If I had to to it all over again, then I would have gone the ROTC route first. Reserves and college at the same time second. Strait active duty third. if you truely want ot be on officer i would go to college first.. and the military next.. it is easier on officers that aren't mavericks can't tell you which rate would be best for you.. no telling i only know the jobs i was familiar with.. and they were all on subs... --------- how did I decide?? walk into each recruiters office and asked em which one had the highest enlistment bonus.. as in cash for enlisting if i finished the training... navy nuclear power school had the highest.. so obviously i am an ex navy nuke!! you did your reasearch.....i would go into inteligence and be a pilot because it is a lot more intresting then security forces but honestly, you seem like a very inteligent person, so you would do good in any branch you choose, good luck but to answer your 2nd question, i chose airforce mainly because i live 2 miles from a major airforce base, kelly-lackland in san antonio tx, and most my family is in the airforce, so i kinda had the opputunity, and i took it lol Seems as though you have done your research, admire that. I would suggest college first if your goal is to be an officer. It is sometimes hard to get the college under your belt once you are in. Your MOS depends on your desire (I am sure that 92 will qualify you for whatever you want!) For me, I chose to become a linguist, that's what I am good at. I would suggest the thing you want, not what people suggest. best of luck Check out the Navy EOD the navy a boatswains mate hope I spelled that right
