    how many of you guys out there are planning on joining the military in the future?

    I plan on joining the U.S. Army after graduation from high school and firefighter I. I'm signed up for a new Navy Junior ROTC program that the school will have ready for next school year.

    If so, what branch are you planning on giving Uncle Sam you John Hancock?

    If all goes well, I'll be Army ROTC this coming fall. So far, the administrative half of the scholarship has come through, I'm just waiting until they evaluate my physical and hopefully I'll be awarded a four year scholarship to Norwich University for their nursing progam.

    There are a lot of programs that can give you a head start with the ROTC scholarship stuff. Good grades, high SAT/ACT, student gov't, sports, Junior ROTC, Civil Air Patrol, scouts, volunteer work, etc.. are all parts of being an ideal "well rounded" candidate. I'd recommend applying for a scholarship for anyone who intends to join the military later in life. It doens't cost anything to apply and who knows, you might get a free education and a job right out of school.

    I plan on going into the Air Force as a Security Forces Apprentice. After that then some more college then hopefully a career in Federal Law Enforcement and hopefully still be a volunteer FireFighter somewhere and also be in the Reserves for a long time. With the way things are going right now I would love if I could enlist in the military now. Oh well, soon enough.....
