I need help with deciding what i want to do with the military?

So, I've been really thinking about the military. I'm a junior in high school and would like to make up my mind about what i'm going to do after high school by the middle of this year. I plan on going to college to get a degree in something to do with computers. Possibly in networking. and, This year i will be attending vanguards tech center program "CCNT" (http://www.vscc.k12.oh.us/schools/techcenter/Programs/CCNT.htm) I really think that doing something in the military having to do with computers would be something for me, but i do not know alot about jobs in the military and which branch i should choose to get the best out of the situation. (Education wise, Pay wise, and Benefits wise). I only want to spend 3 or so years in the military, but i do not know if i should do ROTC, active duty, or just do college and not enlist. I only want what will be best for me in the future and will let me be the best off for the rest of my life. Somebody, and everybody, please give your opinion. I do not know alot about all of this, and all information will help. THANK YOU!

Depending on your financial situation it might just be best to not enlist. But if you are determined to join the military, I advise joining the Air Force or Navy. Mainly the Air Force. The tech side of the Air Force is immense and would allow you to advance. But when you enlist, you are the military, and they will ship... More

There are some minor computer jobs in the army and marines. Nothing big but it gets your feet wet. Navy and airforce have a lot better technical training. But they usually make you do a 4 or 5 year run off the bat. I would say look into what the army could offer you. marine training is difficult and grueling. The good... More

Hey Aaron, this is good time to start putting a plan together and the military is great option to look at. You can't just do a three year enlistment though, the minimum is four, but the military will open many doors for you if you decide not to make a career out of it. Going in as an officer is the way to go, I was... More
