I feel like my life needs a jumpstart, and this thought came out of nowhere today. And I just feel that if I successfully completed a given amount of time in the military that I would feel more respected. Is it a bad idea for me to join up on just an initial thought, especially when I know little to nothing about how the armed forces work. I'm athletic, I'd love to get some experience with weapons, I'm intelligent. And I'm just not liking how it feels to go back to college. Can someone give me some advice, not sided advice like a recruiter would probably give me?
