As for the computer stuff, it's just icing, not my goal. I'm doing computer sciences in the Marines for two reasons; Firstly, it's a real world usable talent, so I could use it for a job after service. Secondly, it's non-direct combat. It's not my reason for joining.
I'm joining for the benefits, the glory, and the education, but mostly the education.
When I get out of the service I will have no debt, enough money to buy a house, real world skills, and a degree. It's what I need.
I hate to sound like a dick, but that sounds like straight up military propaganda.
If it was that easy why arent there enough troops? There are many thing you need to realize and also realize they will lie to get your signature.
Once you sign they own you. Even after your term is served. I dont know, I'd rather try and find other options first.
