Check with a recruiter to locate branch of service and duty stations that have research and development activities like the Detroit Arsenal, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Rock Island Arsenal, etc. for the Army. Navy may have nuclear facilities along the east coast. Chemists are few in military life and most are in weapons development and logistics commands. Lots of nice perks for Chemists whether enlisted of officer in any branch.
