US Navy Reviews
It helps you figure out what you like and don't like. You also have financial stability and heath care the whole time you are in. You have the ability to travel and see places that you've never been to and you don't have to pay for it. The navy allowed me to live in japan for 3 years and explore different Asian cultures. I have grown a lot as a person and view life differently then i did before i joined the military. I highly recommend, that any one that has no idea on what they want to do and doesn't want to be stuck in a full time job at star bucks for 10 years, checking out their options with all the military branches. All you have to do is 4 years and your college is paid for!
I have had a great 17 year career so far. Job security and benefits are hard to beat, and in three years I will be eligible for a pension that will pay me half my salary for the rest of my life. The leadership opportunities are limitless, and every few years you change positions, which keeps things fresh. I have also seen the world during my time: Italy, UK, France, Spain, Bahrain, UAE, Japan, Philippines, and Australia just to name a few! It is hard work, but certainly worthwhile. I take a lot of pride in serving something bigger than myself, and do not have one ounce of regret in choosing to serve!
When I was a civilian, the US Navy was presented to me as the pinnacle of patriotism and a way to embark on an adventure. I signed up after graduating college with plans of becoming a sea faring warrior. Me and hundreds of other eager, and athletic young men entered boot camp to pursue our dreams. I immediately made friends with like minded individuals. After graduating bootcamp and entering into a training pipeline I felt I was on the launchpad for success. However, this dream was dashed as I suffered an injury during my training. After the severity of the injury was documented, I was dropped from the course and forced to go in an entirely different direction. The false narrative that I was fed by my recruiter led me to feeling like a failure. However, now I have a new dream, and a new fire burning within me. I want to attend graduate school and study both film and business. I am determined to take mistakes and turn them into tremendous victories.
