King , if you are considering joining, i think it is a good idea, i believe EVERY American BOY should serve atleast 2 years. It builds character, responisbility, and it is OUR duty as AMERICANS.. anyways if you are considering, talk to me and i will help you, as recruiters sometimes strecth the truth... lemme know
I really want to and plan on doing it down the road. I did some things when I was a juvinille and it's kinda preventing me at the moment. It's something that was listed on the incident report that is what's stopping me. I'll let you know I really only tried with one branch (Marines) and that was a no go.
