    I would never join the armed forces, but if I were forced it would be the army since both my grandpas served in it during WWII and Korea.

    For me, it would be a tough choice between Navy and Air Force, but Air Force would probably win out. I almost joined when I was just out of high school, but changed my mind when I went home, thought about, and realized the federal government would essentially own me 24/7 until I was discharged.

    Re: Which branch of the armed forces would you join?

    In high school and shortly after, I went through this process. Took the ASVAB, twice. Had every recruiter in a 50 mile radius calling and knocking on my door. I talked to all of them with an open mind. I wanted to go where I would be more likely to be able to do what I wanted. The Marine recruiter was pretty straightforward: I'd be sitting behind a desk because I had tits. So, they were a no-go. The Navy was eliminated too, but I can't remember specifically why. So I debated between the Army and Air Force. Since I could not be a ground combatant, the Army didn't offer me as much as the Air Force did. The AF said I could be a pilot, so I chose them. Plus, I kind of favored the AF since my dad was in the AF.

    If not for my thyroid that disqualified me, I'd be a Thunderbird.

    USAF, I'd do it all over again....


    Though a few years ago after the start of the Iraq war I was offered a warrant officer commission and an opportunity to fly helicopters in the army.....


    I would have done it had I been single and not making boat loads of money.

    I think most people do not consider the Coast Guard a actual branch of the military, but instead a civilian law enforcement version of the navy.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
