I have a lot of friends who went into the military and most of them are better for it.
I half regret not going in myself, but the fact is, they wouldn't let me keep my hair.
From what I've heard from them, here's my advice:
-Boot camp is going to be like a "demented summer camp." Do what they tell you and you'll come out OK. If the drill seargent doesn't know your name by the end of boot, you've probably done well for yourself.
-Get yourself into a good MOS that will have value in the civilian market. My uncle was an Nuclear Engineer in the Navy and now he's earning pretty good money bulding submarines.
-TIME KILLERS: Once you're deployed, you're going to be bored out of your mind
. Find something small and portable to keep yourself amused with.
-When you get out, use that GI Bill and get yourself into college.
Other than that, keep your head on your shoulders and don't blow all of your money.
Best of luck, man.
