Hi poja_18, I also plan to become a CRNA, and I plan to do it through the Army. Definetly check into everything the recruiter tells you. I have been in the military for almost 5 years, and one thing everyone jokes about is what the recruiter lied about. Of course, all recruiters dont lie, but if anything that is promised to you is not on that contract, you wont get it.
I will be getting around 900-1000 dollars a month come this fall from my gi bill and my 30,000 college fund I signed up for when I enlisted.
What alansmith52 said about your fellow soldiers in the army as opposed to doing time made me laugh. I personally haven't met anyone who was in that situation, but I heard it applied to some people. You will meet liars, backstabbers,best friends, so on and so forth in the military as I have...but is that any different from a civilian job? I dont think so. (Then again I am not sure, I never had a cilivilian job...lol)
But now that I have gotten out the military, I am going to college with the intent on going ROTC, and sign my life back over to Uncle Sam, stay in until I get certified as a CRNA-do my time, then I will be back out again!!
