Now the only Jobs I am interested in are the following Navy- HM (I dont really care what NEC They put me in) LS CTI Army- 68D 68Q 68P 68V 68K 68W Airforce- Surgical Services Lab Tech Diagnostic Imaging Pharmacy Tech public health physical Medicine Now I come from a Navy Family (Mom, Dad, Brother, sister, both uncles, and all my cousins are either Corpsmen or Logistics Specialists) I would go Navy but when I talked to my boss (I work as an assistant at a medical office, my boss was a 68D before I went to medical school) said that the Army was better. I dont know which one to go, Army, Navy or AF?
