Who here is in any branch of the military? Or has been? I'm debating joining one of the branches but I got a couple of dilemmas tho.

First one being wtf am I gonna do after my 4 yrs of active duty are up? I'm not gonna have a degree, I'm not gonna have any experience to get me a decent paying job. I'd be 22 w. the GI Bill to pay for school but then its pretty much like being fresh outta highschool again.

For those of you who have taken this path what do you do now post service? Was it worth it?

Right now I'm just lost on what I wanna do with my life. Help me out fam.

Stressful ass job. Hope you know what you're getting into. Good pay on civilian side if you can get a job afterward but will probably need more than 4 years military experience. If that's the AFSC you want, take the ASVAB test, and if you qualify, MAKE SURE you get that AFSC before signing the contract. Did 4 years. No regrets. Had fun and met all kinds of people. Get out and do something.

Im enlisted right now. Air Force aint that bad. Especially if you dont have shit going on for you right now. My advice would be to take your time coming in and get a job closest to what you want on the outside. Money isnt everything. To be truely happy is worth much more.

@purpribb1 I'm going to school using the G.I. Bill. Even if you don't plan on going back to school, make sure to get it. You put in around a hundo a months for a year, but get back racks after.

Glad I joined just off the benefits. If anything I wish someone would've told me what I told you. Know what you're going in for and make sure you get it. I didn't know what I wanted to do and ended up joining as basically a mechanic for ground support. Not a very glamorous job but either way an E-6 mechanic get's paid just the same any other E-6. Plus I got to work with F-15's and F-22's, but I didn't want to work as a mechanic for the rest of my life. A lot of people end up re-inlisting because they've grown accustomed to the lifestyle. They house you, they feed you, they schedule 10,000 (exaggerating) medical and training appointments for you and pay you. They basically mom you. Just have a plan before getting out if you decide to. If not, stay in and retire in your 40's.

One thing I will say is, if you go into the military, don't half ass shit. If your going in, be legit about it. Stick to your commitments and avoid the petty shit.

^Lol, that too. But that's why you make sure you go in with your guaranteed AFSC. Can probably guarantee an Air Traffic Controller isn't gonna see the battlefield.

If your looking for a good transition job get something to due with the IT field... most friends i know who got out when we did that are Network security etc... are making 80K right now with certifications. Military is what you make it though granted you don't have a shit supervisor or command...

As for GI Bill...


I wouldn't take it back though best 6 years of my life learned/saw a lot and was apart OEF/OIF. So at least i can say i did something...

I'm in the army. I'm an 11B (infantry). Not the best job choice, but definitely one of the more manly jobs in the MOS catalog. Anything that's really combat related you'll probably just find yourself attached to a bunch of grunts in the 'Stan. So if you want to join and you're asking yourself what MOS to pick, first ask yourself what you want to do with your GI bill and schooling and try and backwards plan from your end state up to the MOS you pick. Quick example...if your end state is to become a private security contractor, then you join with an 11X contract, pass airborne and ranger school, and try and grab as many schools as you can, i.e. Sniper, Arslic, etc, as well as going to the 75th Ranger regiment.
