    Military Reserves...Advice Needed

    So, this upcoming fall, I would like to join a military reserve branch, but I'm not sure with one. By then I will have my associates in Criminal Justice. I have friends in the Army, Navy and the Marines. A friend of mine in the National Guard says that all are basically the same. But I am not sure which way to go. It's also important to note that for my MOS, I want to either by Military Police or a Firefighter/Paramedic.

    I know there's alot of military folk on here, so any help is appreciated.

    Basically this. Also be sure that the if you are receiving civilian certification during the course of your training will help you get a job in the state that you reside in.

    Also, unless you are solely in it for the benefits and the extra cash, pick something you'd actually want to do, regardless of if its in your preferred civilian career field or not.

    I'm not going in for just the benefits. I'm going in for the learning and for the excitement. That's why I want to go in for Military Police or Firefighter.

    Maybe you should pick an MOS that teaches you some reading comprehension then

    When you're on your 12+ month deployment to Afghan you'll think differently.

    I second the "do something you actually want to do" advice. Waking up in the morning to do something that you hate, and knowing that you are under contract to do it for years, just plain sucks.

    Other than that, just make the best of it, and don't get sucked into other people's shitty attitudes.

    Navy and the Air Force have the best educational/vocational training programs in my opinion. I'm not talking about your MOS school either. I'm referring to continuing education opportunities once you've already joined.

    There is very little excitement in the military until you're in the field, and once you're there, it's generally not the type of excitement most of us seek out. I don't know though, maybe you enjoy being scared enough to **** your pants.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    My 2 cents. If you bust your ass and you're not borderline retarded, you'll have the opportunity to advance and eventually lead people. This leadership experience is more valuable than any actual job training. Do something you think you won't hate.
