I am a senior and I will be joining the military. This decision was one of the hardest I have had to experience; it is harder than deciding which college, and I will tell you why. You are committing your life for 4 years. I recently have been talking to the Air Force and the Marines, and they are the polar opposites in a way. I have met with both, and they are both wonderful options, but it came down to who will push me. Choosing a branch will change for everyone because of what they want. It has been hard, but I have chosen the Marines, because they will push me and make me a better person. They will also push me to be the best I can be. If anyone has any problems deciding, tell your recruiter, and they will help you and put you where you will be the most successful.
