I'm debating joining the military. Right now my two choices are really between the Air Force and the Marines. On one hand if I join the Air Force I know my mom will be a lot more calm because in her eyes there will be less risk. On the other hand I feel like joining the Marines gives you a lot more pride than being in the Air Force. Also, from my experience, the Air Force gets more money. Not on pay but as far as ammenities. I lived with my brother in Hawaii(he was in the Army) and Hickam was by far the best base there. Also, how does a GED affect entrance? I know that the military has a limited number of GED slots but as far as Air Force and Marines, I'm sure one fills up quicker than the other.
