A little background info: I'm 25. I've pretty much always wanted to join up. My grandpa was in the army so I've grown up around the culture and shooting a variety of weapons since I was 5 or so. My parents were non-negotiable about me going to college so I couldn't go out of high school. So I went to college and got degrees in Forensic Science and Chemistry. Had a kid and got married. About a month and a half ago the wife and I separated. Now I don't really know what to do. Seems like a good time to join if that's what I'm going to do. Just feel like I need some sort of structure right now since my life's went to shit lately. If I were to join it would be marines or army. I was thinking I might be too old though. And also I have no idea what kind of job I would be getting into b/c I don't know if the degrees matter. Ok, so tell me OT, does it seem like a good idea or am I being a bitch and should wait for my life to maybe straighten out. Yes, I know it's ridiculous to ask OT for life advice. At least I didn't put it in the main.
