Sforscott this is a question you have to answer for your self, don't let anti American people that probably aren't even from America influence your dissuasion to enlist. I have two daughters one 15 and one 17 they have both taken the ASVAB www.military.com... and one wants to join the Air Force after high school and the other wants to join the NAVY after high school they both decided this after talking to my nephew how just came back from the U.S. Marine Corps boot camp and also talking to other family and friends that have served or are serving.

I'm looking for more constructive criticism rather than an anti NWO rant.
You may believe the poster is just engaging in a NWO rant but you should check the facts. The "government" has an occasional habit of experimenting on the troops ('___', other drugs, nerve agents, agent orange, "vaccines", DU, etc). They have also been known to discard their "cannon fodder" once they have taken a hit. Google "Gulf War Syndrome" and "burning semen syndrome" for an eye opening read.
The positives of "service" are job training, job experience, maybe travel, maybe some excitement. You may have the opportunity to build your mind and your body. Just remember that civilian opportunities may extremely limited in some job (MOS/AFSC) specialties.
The negatives of service are many. You may go missing or end up with missing parts. You may end up missing parts of your mind. You might come home in a box ... maybe in pieces. Do you currently believe you are a moral person? That may change. War porn on Youtube and Liveleak can be very revealing.
No matter what you decide, try to understand what this is all about before the event. Talk to people with a variety of opinions. Eyes open. Good luck.
