Which branch is right for me?
I am 20 years old and live in Southern California. My dream is to become a paid civilian Firefighter some day. Before I do that i would like to serve in the Military but i would like to do something that relates to firefighting. I am not certain but to my understanding firefighters in the military are becoming contracted more and more each day by the DoD. With that said I would still like to serve and have a job in the military that relates to firefighting to prepare me when I finish my service. I know all branches have firefighters but I want to know if there are other jobs i can do that are similar and will train me well in relation to some of the characteristics firefighters use in their jobs.
1. Which branch of military do you suggest i go into and why?
2. Which career in that branch do you suggest?
3. How difficult is that career choice and whats the job like?
4. What are the odds i plan to go into a branch of the military and plan on doing a certain career and after boot camp I just get placed wherever no matter if I want to do something else?
Thank you for your time and help with my questions please give all and any detail you can.
