i say try college first, then marines. thats just me but if you do decide to I commend you as that is a very tough choice to make. Just think about it for a month or more before you pull the trigger.

i think it depends on what you want to do...that will tell you where you want to go any branch is a good choice because your not sitting on your butt doing nothing and it is honarable to serve in the military but what skill set do you want to get out of it and what do u want to do while youre in?

It changed my life for the good. If I didnt join the Corps I would be able to afford my TACO right? Just kidding I love and if I could go back and do it again I would.

I started off in the Marines and I tell everyone that it was a great place to start...I learned a lot and I think it has helped me make it to where I am now.

Any branch of the service is great. I think this country should have a mandatory service commitment of at least 2 years. The only thing I really suggest is that you look carefuly at all your choices. Pick a branch that offer you the best deal for your commitment. Please pick a good MOS. Dont be a door gunner because its cool. Dont be a trigger puller for the glory. Pick something you can use in the real world. Not much need for a good artillery man on the outside. But hey, whatever you do, the experience will be good for you. Hoorah little devil pup!

F-18 is not available in the Air Force. Make sure your vision is 20/20, and you CANNOT be color blind. Make sure you check everything out before you commit. Good luck and I hope it works out for you.
