well, times are tough, and i just might be doing the one thing that i never thought i would do - join the military.......
i've been considering the Coast Guard, but i'm trying to figure out which branch would be best for me. i don't want a ridiculously hard basic
training, but i don't want something where i'll be thrown on the font lines, either.
i'd rather help save lives than destroy them, so i figured the Cost Guard might be my best fit. however, is it really hard in basic?? i was talking
to someone the other day that said Coast Guard basic training is harder than the Army...
by the way, i've taken the Army pre-ASVAB before, and i scored fairly high, high enough for the recruiter to mention that if i did as well on the
regular ASVAB, then i could qualify to enter Classified/Top Secret clearances...
on that note, what are all of the branches of military that work with Top Secret endeavors? ...all of them? like, if i wanted to get into
black ops/top secret, what branch of military should i pursue? the Coast Guard doesn't have its own Classified program, does it?
i'd be grateful for anyone familiar with the military, or anyone in the military, to inform me of what i need to know to join. i'm still
hesitant, but i'm running out of options here for for jobs...
also, i wasn't sure where exactly to post this thread, but i know that i do want it on ATS, because if there really are members on here that are in
Top Secret themselves, i'd love to hear them reply, even if it is anonymously
take care guys, i hope to talk to you as soon as i can - i'm without internet at home at the moment, and i'm having to use another pc to access ATS,
so it could be a while before i can respond again in this thread... i sure would love to come back to a great discussion!!
