If, on the unlikely chance, that any of you guys recognize me, you probably know that I don't post a whole lot on here. However, being one of the only communities that I feel can be confided in... I have a bit of a dilemma.
I'm at the point in life where I have to decide what I'm going to do for the rest of that life. I'm pretty focused on going into the military, because military benefits are very good. I also feel that I can't learn as much (life-skill wise) as I can in college, at least, without student loan debts following me until the day I die.
Here's the two choices that I've narrowed it down to at the moment: US navy or US air force. I've talked to recruiters of all branches, and decided that the marines and army aren't for me. From what I've gathered, the Navy has some pretty darn good higher-education options if you elect to join. Moreso than the Air force, at any rate. (If I can go to college for cheap/free while I'm already in the military, that would be the best option IMHO)
However, I just don't feel like the navy is... right for me. I'd eventually like to fly planes (I'd also be quite content to just work on planes), and the USAF and navy both, obviously, have lots of planes. I feel as if the navy would have me stuck on a boat for the majority of my career, whereas the air force would be much more interesting; the thing is that I don't have any evidence to back that up.
Long story short, my brain says navy, but my gut says air force. Do you guys think I'm just being silly and having second thoughts? I'm honestly at a loss... It just doesn't feel right for me to be in the navy.
