Why Join The Military

EDUCATION

Education is a big factor when it comes to making that big decision to serve in the armed forces. Military Tuition Assistance is a benefit paid to eligible service members of the military which pays up to 100% for college tuition. The Montgomery G.I allows all military personal to pursue a higher education and it’s absolutely free. You can use it while you are in the military or you do your time and wait until you get out. Think about it for a second, while your friends are off to college, you are here in the military and can do the same thing for free. With the high cost of tuition these days, a lot of people choose to join solely on this alone.

MONEY

Now then, let’s talk about money. No one wants to work at a job and now get paid for it right? I can tell you that the pay in the military starts off pretty good. If you are single there is no cost for room and board and your meals every day are free. If you are married, the military will pay a certain amount a month for you and you kids (if you have any) to stay. Now tell me who else is going to pay you, feed you and have you a place to stay….for free.

BENEFITS

On to the Benefits. Even with the economy struggling, many people find themselves with little to no medical, denial at all. The military’s medical benefits are one of the best for you and your family. Upon enlistment, servicemembers automatically have the maximum $400,000 of SGLI coverage. Servicemembers can decline or they can have a lesser amount of coverage in increments of $50,000. The spouses can go to college too with the "Stateside Spouse Education Assistance Program". The spouses can get up to $2,500 per academic year for either tuition or fees.

TRAVEL

Germany, Japan Spain, Hawaii, Alaska even Italy and just about anywhere is the United States you can go too. What better way to see the world and get paid doing it. A lot of people barley leave there state. Go see the world and what is has to offer. You will not be disappointed.

HONOR

This is a big one right here. Some people put the uniform on for on just because they want to give back to our country. Some put on the uniform because it is a family tradition.

CAREER

There are a lot of people that chooses to make the military life a career. You know the saying “you work hard, you play hard” After 20 years of serving, you can retire, I mean look at it this way. Your parents could still be working while you are retied. 20 years is really not that long guys. Food for Thought.

We all have our reasons of joining the military and I strongly believe that it is a great choice to make. Take it from me who still currently in the military as we speak. It does not matter what branch you decide to take whether it being the Army, Navy, Air force, Coast Guard or the Marines. The bottom line is that we are all one team.

If you have any question or comments, please let me know.
