Gerry J.’s Answer

What branch of the Army interests you? Do you wish to be an officer or do you wish to enlist? If you are interested in becoming an officer, I would highly recommend that you enroll in ROTC. Working hard in this program will open doors for you and most likely you will find that you will have your choice of branches if your grades and your performance as a CADET are well above average. If you are working toward an engineering degree such as civil engineering, then the Corps of Engineers is an excellent choice.

I was an ROTC scholarship recipient and served 4 years of active service and 24 years of reserve service. I would not trade my experience and career for anything. It was an honor to be a part of our Army.

Hello Isaiah:

Thank you for your question. The unparalleled skills and hands-on training you gain in U.S. Army engineering careers can't be matched anywhere else. In fact, the Army Corps of Engineers is the world's largest public engineering, design and construction management agency. Here are a "few" links to assist you in your research and to take a look at other branches as well. Best of luck to you!
