I briefly considered joining the military while I was still in high school. I had a recruiter come to my house and everything. I eventually decided not to as I have ultimately a problem with authority. I don't know whether it's a mental issue with me or what, but I honestly don't think I would mesh well with the military. I have nothing but respect for those who can, though. The only thing that got a bit annoying was the fact that it was very hard to get the recruiters to stop calling and trying to intimidate me over the phone. I suppose that is their job, though.
