Lance’s Answer

Serving your country in our Armed Forces can be a great way to gain job skills, grow personally, build close friendships and see new things. That being said, the military lifestyle isn't for everyone - you will lose some of your personal freedom (when to wake up, when to eat, when to sleep, how to cut your hair, etc), you have to follow the orders of your superiors (if you don't, you could be punished with extra duty, loss of pay, restriction, etc), you may be asked to do things that you don't want to do (deploy somewhere for months at a time, go to war, etc), your pay may not be equivalent to what you could make on the outside. Our Armed Forces exist to protect and defend the United States, first and foremost - if you are not able/willing to do that, then there are other ways to become a welder.

So, the first question to you would be, "Do you want to serve your country?". Then, the next questions would be, "How do I want to serve my country?", "Do I want to be a welder in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard?". If the answers to these questions are, "Yes!", then you should join on of the branches of the military as a welder.

I suggest you perform an assessment of what your career goals are against what your skills are. Develop a plan to improve your skills to match what your career goals are. Present this plan to as many people as you can and use their feedback to modify or improve your plan.

David’s Answer

Joining the military and serving your country is always a noble cause. I joined the military straight out of High School. Many advantages. Not only did I learn a viable skill, I also used that skill as my job while in the military. One of the reasons former military are often first in line for jobs. They already have the job experience. The other advantage, once you are out of the military you now have your GI Bill to pay for future education. It's a win - win for any employer.
