If you are unsure of what the next step in your life is, considering the military may be a good option. Although it is a commitment you do have to make, there are many benefits that will benefit you for a lifetime. Benefits include, gaining skills that you may not have considered pursuing, meeting new people from all over the US, having the opportunity to go to different places in the US and building character and skills you would not have otherwise built. There are also long-term benefits as being a veteran of the US military including health benefits, free schooling, etc, all while you are paid.

With 2 brothers who served in the military , 1 in the Airforce and a sister-in-law in the Navy I would say this to you -

1) You don't need to join the military to save money and become a business owner or entrepreneur one day. However, joining the service can teach you many skills that will help you achieve your goals.
2) Joining can also be very beneficial to help you get through college since they will pay for your education while you are in the service. This is a wonderful benefit and one of the main reasons why family chose to join.
3) The physical and mental training that you will get will also be extremely valuable as you progress in life and your career
4) You should consider all your options before joining, talk to others who have joined, discuss your plans with your parents/elders, determine what your goals are for joining and stick to them.

Also consider that although joining the service is a great opportunity to learn, get an education, and learn new skills - it is not the only way to help you get to your goals.

Bob’s Answer

Joining the military has a great deal to do with your thinking in terms of what it is you hope to accomplish, what goals you set for yourself. The military offers a vast array of educational and self improvement opportunities. You will learn discipline, organizational skills, leadership abilities, team building, goal orientation, personal responsibility, problem solving and other personal skills.

In addition, you have an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills directly applicable to a career in the military or civilian life. Also, you will potentially be able to gain educational degrees and certifications again applicable to military and civilian life.

I joined the Army at the age of twenty-one and took advantage of the personal improvement available to me. The skills in leadership, personal discipline, responsibility, goal orientation, results driven actions were pivotal to my success in military and civilian life. Later, the experience added substantially to my abilities as President of a high technology business.

You may want to speak with young men and women you know who have enlisted and are currently serving in the military. In addition, stop by a recruiting office and pick up literature on the opportunities available.

Have a goal in mind, focus upon what it is you want to achieve and then see if a military experience will help you to accelerate your move toward that goal.
