I joined the military out of patriotism. I didn't give a flying f**k about the college money.
Funny. When I joined the USAF in 1983 I had a gauranteed job (computer programmer) and a sucky education program (VEAP) Thank goodness I was able to convert it to MGIB! 22 years later as a retiree I got an education, a lifetime of experiences, friends all over the country and world.
Most of the young guys in the USAF now achieve at least an Associate degree before leaving in 4. I may have to volunteer to help out recruiters around here!
