Ever thought of becoming a commercial pilot? I know coast flight in San diego will let you use your GI bill. Could be at the airlines in around 2.5 years and great for VLOGs too. Also some other schools will let you too.

It’s kinda funny people recommending being a personal trainer literally everyone that I knew getting out is doing that... If he’s smart he would go to college and live his best life taking online classes etc..

Why does everyone treat the military as a stepping stone i think why bother joining for just that reason wen theres people who want to join so bad its there passion/dream but just might not get called or might be backlogged bcos of casuals joining for just a springboard.i believe they should only recruit soldiers who dont want to do or know anything other then being a soldier.its a great job/career only for men imo who dont want to do or be anthing would be so much more respectable for our job industry instead of assholes joining who do couple years then have it to say,get couple perks in civvie life,funding for college's etc etc.

It's hard to decide but from the people who were in the Navy and then transitioned out..they miss it. Once you settle in to civilian life there's just work, mortgage, marriage and kids. I say tough it out and go explore more! You've got your whole life to settle down.

How many years do you have in now? How many more sea duty rotations would have have to do before you hit 20 years? Also consider your good RUrun income. If you leave the Navy you will lose followers the income will fall.

27 years ago I was where you're at now. Just rotated to sea and due to wanting to switch coasts did a year in Diego Garcia. Made PO-2 there, then went on the GW during her maiden deployment where I realized that 1st class PO's had it made. Single and living onboard did suck, and that's when I made up my mind that no matter what I'm out at my EAOS. Just as an added insult to injury / irony from hell I actually made PO1 the year before but by the time I wore it, the chit was in, and I was on terminal and past the point of no return. I'd have been retired for 11 years by now, and I am still working. Plus don't discount your medical and dental.. we took a 4000.00 bite out out of our asses this year due to the wonderful world of "deductibles" that you do not have to worry about. In hindsight, even 5 years of sea duty is nothing compared to the big picture if that's what you're facing. My advice - stay in, and work hard to put the anchors on. Crossdeck if you have to and if the opportunity's there. Talk to your LPO and Chief - ask them how they made rank, and study hard for the MA1 exam. And shit.. take an overseas assignment or two - broaden your horizons. Above all else, lead and do not follow, every chance you get. - AT1 (88' - 98')

I had no plan, I just figured it would not end. When I was wounded last time was shipped off stateside. Two months later I was told I would be forced to retire. I had no plan no where was home. The day I walked out of the hospital I was essentially handed a discharge and a handshake. Trust me you truly want a plan.
What about gloves? Gloves are a lot more popular than straps.

Here is the plan when you join the military, you make your plans as soon as you get in. Then adjust them accordingly because situations change but you always have your plan. The same with retirement. You set yourself up with a Roth IRA and have $100 bucks taken out of your paycheck every month, more as you increase your rank.

Hey Alexander, What is “FTS” and how does it relate to the reserves... (or does not relate...?) I’m interested in it, but i don’t know much about it (nor can i find many videos/posts on it) thanks!

You would never be a on a ship if your fts so thats a plus. Really no difference from active cept by my friends who is FTS he works with a squadron but will work with reserve guys time from time. But you are like exactly like fts.

Use your GI/911. Make new options with education, at minimum 3 years BAH and a little bit of time to figure you out. You may also improve yourself in ways you did not think of before. You'll be better integrated back into being a civilian and you won't want to strangle stupid people-as much.

I'd say leave only if you have a plan. I joined the Navy in my 30s, so I got see 1st hand how guys were who came into the civilian world with no plan. Military service on a applicants resume, does look really good, but a lot (not all) veterans think because they served in the armed forces everyone's going kiss their ass, and then get piss when they realize not everyone gives a f*** that you served for our country.

Hi, I just recently found your channel and hoping to join the Navy or AF, I've been working as a civilian nurse for over 3 years, time for a major change/challenge, any tips for trying to get in as an early 30's military reserve applicant? Thank you kindly.
Anna USF
Anna USF Год назад
Thank you for the info. John! It makes sense. I don't have an issue with being deployed overseas. I'm not married, no children, in my early thirties, obtained my BSN, RN degree, and have worked as a nurse for a little over 3 years. I've talked to some recruiters. How is the selection process for OTS (for different branches)? Thanks again!
John Wayne
John Wayne Год назад
Reserve? There are 2 wars going on right now, you will get deployed right after you finish boot and your school. Also reserve time counts differently towards retirement. Go talk to a recruiter. If you are in your 30's better decide real quick the more time you waste the older you get and the harder boot camp is for old dudes.

Hey man. Just watched the part you wanted to drive across the US: I’m 19 and have been dating my girlfriend for 10 Months (as of today :) ). Her dad is a Chief Warrant Officer 4 in the Army out of Fort Leavenworth and we did a road trip all the way from where we live (Nor Cal) to Missouri/Kansas (if you’ve ever been to Fort Leavenworth, literally right at the State line). Regardless, driving down those empty highways at 0300 in the rain and watching the sun rise and set is honestly one of the most peaceful things you can do in life, especially with the love of your life beside you (I’m marrying my girl, I just know it). Our next road trip is to New Mexico (and hit the Grand Canyon on the way). (If you know country music, you might see a pattern with certain cities along the way, haha)

Frequently check CMS ID bud. I've met tons of MAs who've gone to "sea" but in reality never did anything. You can go until your third look before you decide to get out. I wouldn't get too steered away from overseas, alot of the orders are accompanied. If you manage to find a sea duty out in Europe, they've always got stupid cheap MWR trips that'll take you around the entire continent. Look into it bud!

Well, I'm only serving a 3 year term part time and leaving it at that and that's the way I wanted it when I swore In... not for love, but for the chance of me being a dad someday which is a goal of mine.. single or in some form of relationship and feel the chance of any deployments after this term would be harder to move on in life.. plus it's hard to work it out with my full time job if I was to do it for the next 20 years plus it's not really all that after you get done entry training honestly.. I'm still satisfied that I chose a period in my life to serve period..
