Does the Air force or the Navy have better benefits?
I have been debating on whether or not I should join the military. If I did I would either join the Air force or the Navy. they both will give me great benefits for college and for my career field aeronautical engineering.

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.

Haven, If you join as enlisted (not an officer) you will go through boot camp in both services. Once you get passed bootcamp, you will may be offered some job options, or you may assigned a position at some Navy or AF Base with no input from you. One thing to consider is that Air Force tends to promote their enlisted people more slowly than the Navy. Another consideration is how long you want to stay in the Navy or Air Force.
If you can get into either the Navy or Air Force Academies, Christian's advice is your best route.
Garth recommends the following next steps:
The benefits for both services are similar if not the same. Active duty have their basic health care, food, clothing, shelter provided; although you will have to get used to the "basic" variety of those things. You want to be as "healthy" as you can be when you start a career. Some medical/dental issues the military will take the time and resources to address may also interrupt or alter your chosen or scheduled career training path.
