I've had this sudden urge of patriotism. Anyway I'm a grad student, pretty sure I can pass the required tests. But I've heard stories of getting stuck doing things in the army you never wanted to do. How can I make sure I'm on the path I set on to? Also any information besides whats on the websites would be appreciated about the particular career paths. which one do you think is the better option. After service, I'd like to get into some fed gov't work, and I'm sure both would be great for it.
