Hi, I am currently a civilian working for NAVAIR doing Aircraft Engine Design work. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering (graduated May 07). I have had a Secret clearance for almost 5 years and just received my TS/SCI. I received my TS because I am trying to shift my career into intelligence (NAVAIR's 4.12 - Research & Intelligence). However, I want to join the military; I've heavily considered military service in the past, but never have been able to make up my mind. I know I want a career in intelligence, but I also know now that I want to be an officer in the military.
My question is, what military branch would best facilitate my intelligence goals? The Marine Corps appeals to me the most, but I want to give myself the best chance possible to become an intelligence officer, no matter which branch. Any insight would be appreciated!
