So right now I'm kind of considering enlisting in the Navy. Why? I would like to get paid to see the world, and have a good time. My father, former Coast Guard, really encourages me to join, but I'm not set on it quite yet. I'm just kind of stagnating here in school, not enjoying it. I just kind of want to do something interesting. I'd probably have to wait until I'm finished with my Associate's Degree (it will be done by summer). I know there are alot of former/current Navy people on here who can maybe answer my questions. One thing worth remembering is that I am an Eagle Scout (I hear this qualifies me for higher pay and maybe even rank?): I want to travel, and I think working on a surface ship would be exciting. I don't really want to just sit on a base. I mean, ships are cool. So am I most likely going to get stuck on a base straight out of basic? I haven't taken the ASVAB yet, but I don't have any worries about that really. As far as career paths, I'm interested in technological kind of stuff. I know you have to score high on the ASVAB for that. Are those positions plentiful? If you have gone through the Navy, how was boot camp for you? I'm not really worried about this either, just curious. Especially if you've gone through recently. And feel free to add whatever you want about your experiences, or anything else you want to say.
