Mary’s Answer

I served for 8 years active duty Navy. Here's what I can tell you -

First, take a job in the military you'd consider doing/enjoy doing once you're out. If you can use a service academy and go officer to get your degree and job training on the Navy's dime, do that! Bonus of going officer is you also get paid more!
Second, use Tuition Assistance while on active duty to complete as many credits as you can outside of what's given for training.
Third, if you still haven't completed your degree while active duty, use the Post 9/11 GI Bill to pay for schooling.
DO NOT TAKE OUT LOANS.
I know MANY vets who got out, had difficulty finding a job post-Navy because they did not choose a transferable career, and used the Post 9/11 GI Bill funds to live on and still have loans to pay off. I do not recommend this.

Good luck!

Ken’s Answer

You want to study hard and get the best grades you can and go into the Navy after graduating from high school.
If you really want to go into the Navy, discuss with a Navy recruiter how the Navy can train you in those career areas while serving your tour of duty in the Navy.
You might also go to the recruiters of the other services to see what training you can get from them. Some services provide more and different training than others.
After you get out of the Service, if you do not make it a career of 20 years, you can go to college paid for by the GI Bill at little or no cost.
The important thing is to know what career areas are best for you and to try to get all of the training you can. Most everything that you learn in the Service can be used in the civilian world.
Send a thank you note to all that are helpful.
Good Luck!
I will be happy to help further if I can.
