Pine Gap, secret underground bases, black ops etc.
This thread is directed more to ex military guys, or military buffs who can give me some advice...
But i'd appreciate anyone's opinion.
What department in the military would I have to join to stand the best chance of gaining access / knowledge of secret projects etc ?
I know the intelligence field is one option, but i'm not exactly the smartest guy around...My IQ is a bit above average
What would you guys say are my best options ?

I would be discouraging joining the military for these reasons you have stated for the following reasons:
1- all your posts on ATS will be included in your 'file' and your character assessment will reflect this. Maybe this would work to your advantage,
but I really doubt it. I suspect that the word 'security risk' would be on your file somewhere.
2- when you join the military in most countries, you forfeit some basic civil liberties. My understanding, and correct me if I am wrong anyone, is
that you are not allowed to refuse vaccinations or medication (unless for medical reasons); you are given varieties of pills, and basically, you can
be experimented on without your permission or even knowledge. The list of exposing grunts to risks when testing new technology is uncomfortably long
- including exposing Aussie soldiers to A-bomb tests here in Australia. I am also told that all military personnel drink fluoridated water, something
else I do not believe is at all healthy for the human body.
3- you won't get into any intelligence sections. You have to be bloodline, vouched for, and/or be a member of some fraternal organisation, or at
least a member of Rotary, Lyons etc to even qualify. Same applies in the UK, NZ, Canada, and the USA that I know of for sure.
But, on the good side, you would learn skills, discipline and get fit. You just got to weigh up WHY you are doing this imho.
