To Join Or Not To Join?
For about 2 years now I have been wanting to join the military. I went through a phase wanting to go with the Marines but I realised through looking better into that, that it wasn't the best option. I've been looking into the Navy and I think it would be a great experience in that it will help pay for college, give me first hand experience in what I want to do, let me travel to place I would otherwise never be able to see, and it will let me try and make a difference in something other than myself. I feel as if I have researched it enough to make an informed decision but most people in my family I talk to think it isn't a good choice and that my recruiter is just telling me what I want to hear so I'll sign the papers and ship off. I feel like this is something I want to do, something I feel a need to do but I am very family oriented and don't want to just leave without their ok since I am 18 already. I don't know what to do, I want to follow my heart but it's telling me 2 different things.
