How is it dumb when im saying both create broken youth who go into it with no knowledge. And i did not say every gets shot at.
Notnin the military but i do help the men and women who comeback try to find the necessary health care they need becuase they dont qualify for or are waiting on VA benefits.
You only took my shooting comments and porn comparison with deeper thinking about and possibly seeing the comparison.
And entry level military only makes at the most 28k so you in the same situation as the minimum wage worker.
And hownlong do you have to sign up to get that 4 years of promised college?
28k salary but don't have to pay for food or shelter or medical.
you sign up for 4 years and you will get the post 9-11 GI bill which guarantees you 4 years tuition paid and they will pay you the cost of living in the area of your school so you have a place to live. for me in houston that 1400$ a month to find a place to live...i found a place for a less than a G and pocketed the rest. Again...they pay for school and shelter oh and free medical benefits from the VA. You are also still available for 100% financial aid for school as well so thats another check. And free moving expenses for everything you own including your car.
i've done all this while getting travel the world and live in europe. never shot a bullet anyone in my life and have never been shot at.
also you get free tuition while you are in the military so i took advantage of that as well.
add to that i was trained as a aircraft fuel system specialists and still hold that license to fall back on.
used my GI bill to go in to healthcare and am currently living very comfortably.
not to mention my military experience has leapfrogged me in front of other candidates and was offered 3 jobs before i even graduated.
im sorry but you really don't know what you are talking about. comparing it to the porn industry is completely asinine.
there are a lot of people who don't know how to take advantage of all the opportunities the military gives are completlely ignorant and have no drive to suceed once they get out because its not an easy transition.
