Yea, start running. Tell them you are gay, I am sure there will be a fast track for advancement thanks to the Navy's equal opportunity policy. This is meant to be a joke and if, on the chance you happen to be gay, go into the sub community. Hahahaha

Expect it to suck extra if you go to Great Mistakes for boot camp.
And remember "it's not just a job, it's a blow job"

Enlist in the Air Force instead, we send our officers to fight.
Rules of DOD:

Marine Corps Rules:
1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
3. Have a plan.
4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.
5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a "4."
7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)
9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot...

Navy SEAL's Rules:
1. Look very cool in sunglasses.
2. Kill every living thing within view.
3. Adjust Speedo.
4. Check hair in mirror.

US Army Rangers Rules:
1. Walk in 50 miles wearing 75 pound rucksack while starving.
2. Locate individuals requiring killing.
3. Request permission via radio from "Higher" to perform killing.
4. Curse bitterly when mission is aborted.
5. Walk out 50 miles wearing a 75 pound rucksack while starving.

US Army Rules:
1. Curse bitterly when receiving operational order.
2. Make sure there is extra ammo and extra coffee.
3. Curse bitterly.
4. Curse bitterly
5. Do not listen to 2nd Lieutenants. They can get you killed.
6. Curse bitterly.

US Air Force Rules:
1. Have a cocktail.
2. Adjust temperature on air-conditioner.
3. See what's on HBO.
4. Ask "What is a gunfight?"
5. Request more funding from Congress with a "killer" Power Point presentation.
6. Wine & dine 'key' Congressmen, invite DOD & defense industry executives.
7. Receive funding, set up new command and assemble assets.
8. Declare the assets "strategic" and never deploy them operationally.
9. Hurry to make 1345 tee-time.
10. Make sure the base is as far as possible from the conflict but close enough to have tax exemption.

US Navy Rules:
1. Go to Sea.
2. Drink Coffee.
3. Deploy Marines

study for the ASVAB so you can get a rating worth something when you get out...

Look into CT, IS, IT, AE/AT, or AC... because being a BM, CS, SH, HT, TM, EN, or OS sucks

oh, also... do some running.

4. Sit back and realize just how good it is to be a Coastie.

Coasties are Department of Homeland Security... Same as Immigration and Boarder Patrol Etc... Good service to be in though! I have a few friends still in the Coast Guard.

Navy is the way to go though IMHO. I did 8 as an Electrician and loved it. Tax payers even gave me a free 4yr degree while I was in! Worth ever bit of your time. My GF has $30K plus in student loans... Me none! Now I get paid to go to school for another degree and kick it.

Don't do the Marine corp unless you like completely ridiculous rules and UFC...

Don't do the Army unless you love to camp and want long ass deployments...

Don't do the Air Force if you want a technical job, they have too many specific jobs that don't expand your skill set as much as a similar job in the Navy will.

Don't join the Navy if you can't live on a ship for 3-7 months. Ship is much better then the desert or Afgan though for sure! There are women on the ship too so its not like 2000 men go out and 1000 couples come back. But while at sea you see port's all around the world and have a ton of fun. Or you can get lucky like me and just work on ground based aircraft
