It's your choice, any of the services will kick your butt, in a good way, but the Navy could keep you out of a war zone...

great answer, John.
My brother recently retired after 25 years in the navy-- it was tough on him but he said he would do the same thing if he had it to do over again. He has seen the entire world... he insists the work was very hard but worth it

It is a learning experience! It is also a wake up call.

It's not easy. But neither is life. Any branch of the Armed Forces would be a great career move. I've answered your question last week. Perhaps I'm partial to the Service because several of my family have served. I wish I had done the same for many reasons.
Sounds like you're interested in doing something. Do some research, pray about it and you'll know what to do.

Bootcamp in the Navy is about 9 weeks long. You will be in a company of about 80 guys. There will three or four other companies that make up the division. You will slowly lose guys as the weeks progress. Mostly health related. But some will fail swim test, or just can't handle the long hours. The company commanders are teaching you how the navy operates. If you cannot handle 12 to 14 hours of physical training, marching, cleaning your barracks, going to eduction classes and folding clothes, then how would you do in the real navy during a war time situation. In a war, the battle will not be exactly 8 hours long with a lunch break. You learn how to function for Ten to twelve hours at a time. When you graduate boot camp, then you are sent to your training center to learn your trade. That lasts about ten weeks. Graduating boot camp is a proud moment for yourself, your family, and especially for your country.

If you've experienced high school football "2-a-day" practices in August ... Imagine that for 14-hours a day, for 12 weeks.
