Not to say I am "Down with the government", but I am "If I don't respect you, I don't give a shit what you say - Go eat a dick."
Yet I am thinking about the military, or rather the benefits.
My old man is a vet, and my oldest brother is a Lieutenant Colonel, and they get decent benefits.
But I know the military doesn't like my type of mindset.
While I keep getting told: "Your mindset will change."
Believe me, I'm stubborn as shit, and smarter than most - I don't see that happening.
Yeah, I could be wrong (so says the vets) but I don't believe I am.
If I could withstand 12 years of brainwashing, I can withstand 4.
What are the pros and cons of the military?
How is it really?

I’m a military brat like you, so I’ve seen some of the stuff first hand... Remember that practically every soldier cries in boot camp... and all who go on deployment come back with at least mild ptsd... and many more suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts from time to time... My dad just got medically released mainly for his mental state of mind due to war... you can only survive so many near misses before you flip...
On the pro side, health, dental, and eye care are provided as well as housing... and it is a really steady income... and you get to see the world.

If you're considering the military, you're definitely not "smarter than most." The military takes much more than it gives, in every way. It doesn't pay worth a shit, the benefits are slightly above average, but anyone who is truly "smarter than most" can get outstanding pay and benefits with any great company. Just the fact that you think you're special and still think the military is a reasonable choice is a clear indication that you are exactly the kind of person recruiters love enrolling. Go for it. If you survive, you'll have lots of neat stories about travelling to distant exotic lands, meeting new & exciting people and then shooting them!
