I am trying to decide on my career. Should I do what I'm good at or should I do what I love?
I am currently in the military. I work with computers and I'm actually really good at it. However, I love animals. I always have loved animals ever since I was a kid and my dream job was to be a veterinarian.

Work is a means to an end. you know you are good with computers and you have military training. that is valuable . a career with animals is rewarding in some ways but not financially. loving something is no guarantee you will be good at it. take the bird in the hand
