PostSubject: I've been thinking about a Military Career   Mon Jan 16, 2012 4:56 pm

I've always had a strong interest in the military, but now's really the point in time I've actually thought about a possible career. At my school we have Navy army and Airforce reps come once a month (Marines never come for some reason) and it's started bagging on my mind. I dont want to join the military for a paycheck and end up being a mercinary in uniform, plus I've always been good with mechanicals and electricals. So if I ever do end up in the Military, what branch should I join? Post the division to like MPs or Corps of Enginers.

I guess the Navy seems good for me if I had to choose. (not very interested in joining any branch since im not that kind of guy)
Probably because nowadays it is a particularly safe job that still reaps the benefits and adrenaline. Whilst marines maybe in the close combat and not firing missiles or shooting subs or saving people from African pirates, marines are MUCH more susceptible to getting hurt or to dieing. Sadly, the marines are often politically viewed as the Calvary, (aka there is so much of them that you can send them in even if they are going to die)

Now, if this is about you, and you are good with engineering, and technical stuff, the Navy fits in very nice for you, there is a lot of technical stuff to do with the navy. (and you still get to deal with jets)

You're 14. Wait until your senior year of high school to decide, your still at that age where you will be wanting to do this or that so this thread honestly can't be taken seriously. My best advice to you though (although either way you should be doing it anyways) is to just work out in general run, weights, sports. A recruiter can only answer questions for you but he will not consider you a serious candidate until your 17 and a senior.

On a personal note, I wasn't sure about the Army until the final months of high school, military wasn't my first choice but I'm glad I went through with it. I leave next tuesday for training. (infantry) Enjoy life, the military isn't going anywhere.



Just so you don't think I'm saying that you shouldn't think about it because you should but also have other options open always think about your future but don't over think it. Junior year is where you should start picking up that pace about your future and also, stay out of trouble because school related things can affect your ability of joining.

I agree with Will. You're 14, and still can decide whether or not you want to enlist, as it's still early. Right now, you're focus should be enjoying life, getting an education, working part-time, etc.

However, regarding the branch, it depends on your interest and what role you want to be. If you're interested in different types of Engineering, such as Mechanical and Technical, then either the Air Force or Navy provide great programs for Mechanical Engineering, and Technical.

However, if you want to build fortifications, the Army Corp of Engineers is a better branch.

If you want to work with security or rescue, the Coast Guard, Military Police Corps, and the Air Force are the best.

If you want to work with intelligence, I recommend the Marines, IF you want to work in an area that has lots of action, but heavy paperwork. The Navy always seems to be a favorite, as well as the Air Force.

If you want to work with infantry/vehicle combat, then the Marines or the Army are you best bet.

Thanks for the feedback so far. Look, Im not going to go right now and ask for a brochoure or something, Im just trying to look at all my options. I said IF I decide down the road if I want to join the Armed Services, Im not even sure if I want to yet. Im turning 15 in 2 days. I'll be deadly's age and he's doing something already. I figure I should look at all of my future pssiblilities, including service.

Good for you. I agree that time to time, I am deciding on what branch to join the military. I have yet to decide for the Military Police Corps, the Air Force, or the Navy. I for now, don't want to deal with infantry/vehicle combat, unless it's patrolling.

Best living conditions - Air Force
Sea Based Ops - Navy
Land invasion force - Army
Coastal raid force - Marines
Save them boaters - Coast Guard


But, since you are 14, don't think about it. Things will change in your life, and you may not want to join, due to finding new intrests, a girl, family matters, etc.
