The benefits like retirement, education, and pay will be the same in all of the services. If you are deciding between the Air Force and Navy, you should look at the difference in their missions and locations as well as the particular job you are interested in. Sailors tend to spend allot of time at sea and so their bases are typically located on the coasts, although not all of them are. The Air Force locations are usually in more remote locations inland, although they also have some bases along the coast.
Robert recommends the following next steps:
- Since you are interested in Aeronautical Engineering, I would suggest you look into colleges that offer Air Force and Navy ROTC. If your grades are good, you can likely qualify for an ROTC scholarship and enter the military as an officer where the pay and leadership opportunities are greater. Look online for information on Air Force and Navy ROTC. Best of luck to you.
