I am 20 and currently hold a well paying job at a well established corporation with a lot of opportunity for advancement. I have my HS diploma and is currently at a JC, waiting to transfer in a year or so to Cal State Long Beach for their criminal justice program. My goal is to kinda see where my current job path will take me but mainly, what I want is to get into law enforcement. Being in the military is just something Ive always wanted to do and I almost joined a while back if it hadnt been for my residency papers. Well, all of that is sorted out now. I dont really care to join active duty because I currently live with my disabled grandmother (who raised me ever since I was a little baby) and she doesnt really have anybody else to depend on if I were to be gone for a whole 4 years. Also, I want to test the waters with my current job. I looked into the Army Reserves and the Marine reserves and I got plenty of information from the recruiter but I wanted to see what your guys' opinions are on the matter.
