Navy or Army, cant decide?
This is G's brother. I started losing weight 3 months ago and in those 3 months I have already lost nearly 50 pounds. I have another 30 to go so I am giving myself another 3 months. I have been actively talking to a recruiter from all branches but the ones I really are interested in are the Navy and the Army. now if I joined the Navy, I would want the following ratings- HM- Hospital Corpsman SECF- its a program that puts me in either ST, ETcomms, ETnav, or FT IS- Intelligence Specialist CT- Cryptologic technician (Technical, Interpretive, or Collections. I would like Technical or Collections the most but if I get stuck with Interpretive, I dont think I would mind) If I went Army I would want these MOS: 35F- intelligence Analyst 15W- UAV Operator 11B- Infantryman 74D- CBRN specialist 68W- Healthcare specialist 35M- Human intel collector 68Q- Pharmacy Specialist 68G- Patient Admin specialist Now the two largest things I want to do in the military are Intel and Medical (So IS, CT, HM, 35F, 15W, 35M, 68W, 68Q, and 68G are the my top wants). The main reason I like intel is because my dad was an HM in the Navy and the best place I have ever lived was in DC and living right where the head of all intelligence for the US was, it was very interesting, and working at Bethesda (EMT among other things, I helped with the transportation of wounded warriors from Walter Reed to Bethesda and I currently drive patients to belvoir). I will worry about the jobs after I have picked a branch and lose the weight and enlist. like the navy because of their tradition, Coming from a Navy family, Tradition was always held high in my family. I also love to travel, especially on ships (funny thing is, my mom was visiting my dad on his ship back in the 90s and she went into labor and gave birth to me in the medical department on the ship, that is pretty much the highlight of my life. the thing that is making me consider the Army is that I heard that quality of life is better in the Army and that Intel and Medicine in the Army is way better than the Navy. When I say Quality of life I mean that I am treated more fairly and that I am given more responsibility in the Army rather than in the Navy. If I were to go into Intel or medicine, I would want to be given alot of responsibility and I want to live in DC at least once in my Military career (I want to serve at least 4 but I am open to a career, i can only decide once im in). I would just go ahead and choose navy but i am not sure of what I heard was true (that their intel and medicine fields are the worst in the tri-service and that they are not given as many as responsibilities as Army soldiers are) Are the rumors true? Which branch should I join, Navy or Army. I nad before you say it, I know I want to join, I had hit rock bottom, I didnt feel as if what I was doing in life was enough for me and my life. My dad sat me down and talked to me about losing the weight and joining the military. I went to each branches recruiter and just by talking to the first one, I knew its what I wanted for my life and that I could really do something for myself and my country. That would be my third choice, but only if I got jobs I didnt want in the Navy or the Army, but overall, the Marine recruiter was very cocky, and not in the fun, motivating way. If I ended up deciding on infantry in the Army, I would LOVE to go Airborne.

First of all, congrats on the weight loss, and on sticking to it. If you can accomplish your weight goals, you already have more discipline than most of the American population... More
