    I spent 7 years in the military as a corpsman and I was impressed with the RN's that I worked with. However, I also thought they were very well paid for the job they did. I would have done it in a heartbeat if the navy would have ever allowed me to go to college. I spent 7 years trying desperately to get college credits in 3 countries. I finally gave up and went to college in OK. 3 years later and $20,000 later, I have a good job and a great future to look forward to. By the way, I worked with the Marines and I guarantee you I would be in IRAQ right now if I wouldn't have left. I would have never wanted to be anywhere but with my marines when I was in the military and I don't want anything to do with the whole organization now that I am out. I think it is good for few to go into the military as enlisted. It is good for many to go in after college as an officer. I may be interested in a VA job at some point. I was an E-5 and I feel that I was not given a fair shake in many aspects of my career. When you are in the military it all depends on who is around you and what is going on at the time. I am sure right now I could do a lot with little effort since they are having retention issues. I am pro military by the way. I just think our servicemembers and those looking to become as such realize that they are government property in every aspect.
