U.S. Armed Forces

What Is It?
Enlistment in the U.S. Armed Forces: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard.

At least a two-year commitment.

What You Get
Career training and experience, and an opportunity to travel. There is also the G.I. Bill, which pays up to $49,248 toward your education (2009 limits).

Paid room and board. Skills training. The kind of great body that comes from having your own “personal trainer.”

Your wardrobe is selected for you and more haircuts than you really need.

Consider carefully the occupational specialty you choose. Some have civilian applications; others are better only for military careers.
