It seems like the thing for me because I want to serve, and I would like to do it on or around the water. Unfortunately I have no idea of what I would want to do if I actually join. *Edit* So I guess what I am asking is what is a good way to figure this out? After reading some other post regarding joining, I guess I need some info on me..So: 19 and graduated high school. Did decent enough, B and C student all 4 years, but school isn't really my thing. I love to learn, I just don't do well in classrooms, or indoors in general. I am an outdoors person. Did scouting for as long as I can remember and became an Eagle Scout. (It's my limited understanding that this helps me in some way if I join? Not sure) My time is spent scuba diving, shooting and going to community college. I'd like to go to a university eventually, but I just can't afford it. I'm hoping somewhere down the road the military could help with this. Any advice/tips/general information or flaming even?
