As much of a Lifestyle as it is a Job
The military is not for everyone, but if you have the chance you should take it. Getting up in the morning, dawning a uniform, and knowing you have a purpose to fulfill each day gave me a great deal of pride. Yes, the Air Force is the largest user of Aircraft, but they cover all other military fields as well. Being a jet mechanic personally, I enjoyed my time there, (drills aside)*cough*. Most of the time, we take care of our own. Both in and outside of the service. I would encourage everyone to at least give it a try.
To many to list here.
