Education is a great thing,
and something everyone should strive for.
One the the main reasons
that military recruiters say you should join is to take
advantage of their (taxpayer-paid) college options. Consider
loans through Sallie Mae
and College Scholarships
for Federal Student Financial Aid - US Dept. of Education
the Smart Guide to Financial Aid
- Online College Applications and Free Financial Aid
Tuition Assistance Plans Fund Lifelong Learning
Would you rather be
here (in Fallujah)?
or here (in college)?
P.S. if a military career
is such a great way to college and success, then how come
so many of the today's rich - including politicians and
business people - never joined the military? See: Forbes,
the World's Richest People
Take a look around you
at those who you know who had a career in the military...are
they rich and successful?
