I have a friend stationed in Montana right now. Seems to be working out well for him. I have a lot of friends now that are saying to themselves "Hey I'm 22, not going to school, and don't have any sort of prospects for a job" so they are looking into the military.
Couple of my friends scored high on some test they give you to place you in a possible field. One scored really high, but due to his horrible credit they said they can't give him any of the good jobs so he'll have to settle for cook or an infantry position. Forgot what branch that was but he's still looking around trying to work something out.
