    I will say this, if you just want to get sum then Corps or Army...leaning more on the Corps side:D but realize that if you want to aquire some skills that will benefit you on the outside when you are done then i would definitly go another route.
    I've always heard the Airforce was a good gig plus they have all the nice bases, housing (maids for barracks), and those are some jobs that will make you some MONEY when you get out. when deployed they always have an endless supply of goodies too that the pilots will pick on their way through certain countries. They are the reason i was able to get drunk on christmas when deployed:) thanks Airforce!

    Looks like Jeremiekc has been around though he should have some insight.

    Hey just so you know Human Intel for the marines is a second term enlistment. You cannot enlist for Counter-Intel Marines version of Humint. You must be an NCO you also have to go through a selection board in the Marines to get the job. If you want to know about the humint field PM me. Im actually humint in the Army.

    There are lots of WOMEN who have served our country and deserve just as much respect and acknowledgement.
    :woot: Judy representing the ladies :D



    I was married to a Marine. I had Grandfathers in the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps and my Dad was in the Air Force.
    I wanted to be a Marine, but was medically dq'd from all branches. So I joined the Police Department and after 3 years left due to medical issues.

    My unit is VMFA-314. We are one of the F-18 Squadrons.
