my gf has a friend in the Navy. She joined right out of high school and they were talking recently and since my gf has graduated college (about 1 1/2 years ago) she hasn't found a well paying job and she has applied to many. They were talking and now she is thinking of joining, and she asked me if I would be interested. I am still in school and have a year or so left, my gf graduated early, and I don't know what would be a smart move. Keep going to school or join, because I always wanted to join when I got out of high school but my gf thought it wasn't too good of an idea, go figure. Anyway, these are probably questions that could be answered in the sticky or by a recruiter I just wanted to get it off my chest and see what you guys thought. How hard is the basic training? Would the navy help pay for some of my school? Im 21 right now and my gf is 22 we have no kids and nothing to really tie us down here, but it's a pretty big decision for me and I'm kind of excited. if these are questions that have already been answered you can delete this thread. This is all kind of sudden to me since my gf has had no prior enthusiasm to join the navy.
