Since I was about 17 or 18 I have always toyed with the idea of entering a branch of the military and giving back to this amazing country. This idea has grown and faded in the past 4 years, but has always been there in the back of my mind. I am only 22 and honestly have no idea what the hell I would like to do with my life. I am interested in fitness and law, etc. But I think entering a branch after I graduate next semester and entering officer training would be a great way to see the world, grow, and find out what truly interests me. I have nothing but respect for military personnel and believe that what they do is some of the most honorable work you can do.
With all of this being said, I want to hear from you guys that are or were enlisted either as privates, or went right into officer training. Do you think it was worth it? Where do you see yourself going afterwards? Any and all information is welcome.
Also, the branch I am most interested in is the Air Force because it makes the most sense, in my opinion, for college graduates.
Also, one final question: I have not really done any research on this, but I have always thought that in order to become a Navy SEAL, you had to first enter and complete regular navy training, and then go on to the SEAL training. A buddy of mine was telling me that you could enter the SEAls after completing any branch of the military, and yet another one of my friends told me that you could just enlist in the SEALs immediately. I think the listing in the SEALs immediately is not true, but if someone could learn me, that would be great.
