what are the different branches you can join? like army, national guard, navy, etc. ; and what are the time requirements for them? I think army you need to serve at least 4 years but what aboout the rest? can someone please explain this to me :/
There are different programs with different obligations. You should talk to an actual recruiter to get the specifics on whatever you want to join the service to do.
Two things to keep in mind is that you may not get to do what you sign up for even if you get it in writing and since we are at war you may not be able to leave when your obligation is met because of "stop loss" extensions. It seems that the military has a harder time getting members to reenlist during war so sometimes they just won't them leave.
^ what fillet said.
and to you TC. go to the Branch's Websites. and follow the links to Talk to a recruiter. you'll have to Put down your information of course.
A Recruiter from a Local recruitment office should call you up, and will probably want to talk to you in person. When that happens you can ask them your questions. ^_^.
I'm still a bit apprehansive(spl) about Enlisting myself. I'm gonna go into the United States Marine Corps After I've fulfilled my prior promise to my parents to Finish getting my Criminal Justice Masters Degree. (it'll be awhile)
because I dont know one or how I could talk to one lol I would if I could, my school doesnt even have a ROTC program so I wouldnt be able to go there either.
