Joining Air Force or Army
I'm contemplating joing the Air Force or Army. what are some of the pros and cons of each branch. I'm 23 and I just got a B.A in Accounting and Finance. I'm also a bilingual.For many reasons, I want to join the military. I'm thinking of either the Army or the Air Force. From what I hear from people, Air Force is more laid back, less strict, and much safer. what are some of the advantages of the Army and disadvatages of the Air Force and vice versa, such as pay, benefits, promotion, etc.
