I just had a crazy idea pop in my head this morning: "I have no job, no real reason to hold me at home, I need to get in shape, and I would love to travel." I was suddenly reminded of an old aquaintance who ran off an joined the Navy, and is now in basic training. I haven't heard from him since, but its an idea I'm considering. Can anyone offer some advice? Anything from offered incentives to which branch? Anything from "Don't do it!" to "I did it, and now I'm a killing machine?" Please offer any advice, and if you have any resources for me to check out to help me learn more, please send me a link. Thanks.
