Well just as the title says, Ive been thinking alot lately about contracting with the ROTC here. Most of my reasons would be because Ive been wanting to goin into the military for along time, and plus, if I contract, I will getting paid monthly.
-Become an officer
-Get physically fit (which I need to)
-required 8 years of service after colllege (I can do 6 reserve and 2 active..or was it the other way around?) (EDIT: I mean in terms of time away from friends, family. I would GLADLY defend my country, especially for our current situation)
-Getting deployed somewhere
I know quite a few members here are prior service, so I ask for their input. One thing that Im still wary of, is that I spent 7 years of my life in the Naval seacadet corp, so naturally, I want to go Navy, but I cant because the only navy rotc is at FAMU, and it I would have to do a cross-town, but I dont have my own car.
So these are my reasons, for awhile, Ive been wanting to, but I just cant decide just yet
