Or the Doc, take your pick... Being enlisted did suck wang at times, but being the Doc definitely had it's perks. I'll never trade the lessons I learned being an enlisted man, I think it made me a much better leader beeing able to learn from JO's and other senior enlisted who would fuck shit up just because of inexperience, false bravado, or looking for that preverbial "pat on the head" from the skipper. Course there are some strong leaders out there as well, like BH6 here in the forums.
However, if you have your degree in hand already, you should persue being an officer, it just makes sense.
If you're looking for the action, though, the Military is where it's at nowadays. Just be sure you persue the type of action that you want and not let yourself be cohersed into a Military cubicle job because of the degree you achieved in college. Just because it's the Military doesn't mean that there isn't paper that has to be pushed around.
