I am going to join the Military, when I hit 18 for many reasons. I am going to join the Army Rangers, because they are what I would see myself doing in the Military. Their training is brutal, but I can take it. One reason why I am joining the Military, is because many family members were in it. My Mom's dad was a Green Beret, and my dad's dad. Who was a engineer in World War 2. None of my brothers didn't join, and they were going to but they seen other things. I also want to join the Rangers, because I see it as an honor joining them. Whenever I hear anything Ranger I get Goosebumps. Knowing that I might die in battle, is something I am not afraid of either. Well that was a little bit of my story. Add your comments on what branch of the military you might join, if you had the chance. Talk about why you would join them.

I would want to be either in the Air Force or Navy. My grandfather was in the Navy and there is so much honor within the navy. My best friend is Air Force and the things she gets to do with planes and what not would be interesting to learn.

Air force is great, and navy is awesome. I was thinking about being a seal but some seals don't see combat. Or they barley get in the action. Air Force is a main support during combat, because they suppresses their targets for ground forces to move up. They also are great support in a fight, for taking out enemies.

I planned to enter a military academy before I entered my current university. I also wanted to be a marine. Oh well, I found out that my vision isn't good. I can handle brutal trainings since I used to be a varsity player and a taekwondo practitioner. Oh well, aside from my vision, my height isn't enough.:D

My brother wanted to be a marine, he couldn't pass the asvab though. He gave up, I don't know why. If I was you, you could of chased your dreams. Its hard to make everything work though, because things come up. That's why I am trying to plan everything out before it does happen.

if i would join the military i would probably be in the artillery.since its close to the front but not close enough to be shot at.people have different views in life.some prefer more action so they join special units like the army rangers.

If I had the chance, I would join the navy. Because I am in China and many of our islands have been taken by some other countries and I would have the chance to defend my country's land if I join the navy. LOL!

I would be a chef for the soldiers. I think it's probably the least violent job I can do there. I wouldn't want to be a soldier and get myself blown up in 3 months. If there was a world war then that's the different story I'd sacrifise myself for my country but other than that I'll stick to stirring soup.

I would want to be a helicopter pilot. I have always wanted to learn to fly, and I attempted to join the Army so that I could get into their helicopter training. However, a physical handicap prevented me from being accepted into the Army, so that was pretty much the end of my dream, because I cannot afford to go to a public school to learn to fly.
