What would be the best way to serve my country?
Well, I'm a very smart 15 year old kid, being a sophmore next year. I've greown up in the U.S and I'm the kinda guy who supports his country and wants to serve it. I'm not sure what I want to do though! I'm very good at math and science, usualy I can master anything within the first few minutes of attempting (Video Games, learning new methods of doing math, following along easily) I like guns (favorite weapon is a HKG36). I'm a very good strategist. What should I do?
