What military route should I take?

Home More advice Jobs & Money

I know that I want to be an Army officer. I know that I want to do some sort of police work/detective/border patrol/homeland security during and after my career as an officer. How do I get there?

 I plan to go to Eastern Michigan University and want to do ROTC. Problem is, these "find out how" and "more info here" articles I am reading are driving me in circles! I am going into my senior year of high school, and I am an Eagle Scout, in addition to an NRA rifle marksman, and an E3 in the Sea Cadets program.

 Any input would help, but I am specifically asking if anybody out there has been in my position or knows what to do. My recruiter talks nonsense, so don't tell me to talk to him.
