Any linguists out there... other military personel, need help deciding...?
I'm 17 and am thinking of joining the military after I graduate (next year), but am not sure which branch..
I want to go into linguistics.. such as a CTI etc. I haven't taken the DLAB yet, but assume that I pass. All the branches offer positions in linguistics so I'm not sure which branch I should join. Here is my cons/pros for each branch..
MarineCorps - might be too radical, seems more
brawny than brainy, too tough/exciting, meaningful,prestigious, and adventurous, travel?
AirForce - Seems whimpy, heard they wont guarantee
a job prior to joining (you must pick like four?)/Brains over
Navy - Travel? dont know much about the navy compared to the other branches..
Army - brawn over brains/travel? meaningful don't know much about this branch either.
I would greatly apreciate additions/details to my pros/cons list, personal experiences, opinions, comments, and just about any information... especially concerning linguistics
thanks : )
