I have been in the military and it was probably the best thing I ever did for myself. No matter your qualifications they will train you to do something. Good luck and I think it's a good idea.

I agree with Charlie. You probably will be deployed. Try something medical. X-ray tech, lab tech, medic: something that can be used on the outside. I was in the military for 7 years. It was a good experience, but I was single at the time. good luck

There's plenty of room in the army. The age limit is currently 40, and you can get an accelerated citizenship.

The prospects for enlistment are very good... Contact an Army recruiter and talk (YOU DONT HAVE TO SIGN UP THEN) and see what your options are.

My experience is with the US Air Force, 22 years active and currently retired. I can't recall any assignment, or any base where a good material handler wasn't a valuable commodity. If you are looking for something else, just talk with recruiter. Good Luck

Do everything legally, and you'll do just fine. I know several people who have come from Africa, Asia, South America, and Europe and went right into the U.S. military. It's a great thing that our country does by making it easy to serve, and you're rewarded very well. It makes getting your citizenship a bit smoother, as... More
