Hey People. From Reading around a little I get the impression that ya get a lot of- I am thinking of joining, bla bla bla threads. So I hope that I do not bore you too bad. lol. I am 19 and in college, getting a bachelor of science degree. I have wanted to join the military for quite some time, and am thinking that I would like to join after school as a medic. Then, possibly go for med school and work as a doctor for the service. Here is where the questions come in. First of all, what branch do i want to join? Navy? i know they have got good medics and doctors, but what about the other branches. I know the Marines use Navy docs, but other branches have their own, no? Also, I am female, and was wondering a woman's perspective on all of this. I am still WAY young now but if this is what I will be doing as a career then I wonder about what it would be like having a family and serving. I suppose you boys who got families and what not have a pretty good idea of life like that too.
