i'm thinking of joining the army i'm 21 and work 40 or so hours in a BBQ joint a week decent money but it's not going anywhere. i'm pretty smart and am motivated to improve my current situation. My idea job right now would be with the U.S. Marshall's office. i don't have a degree and despise school even though i do well in it, so i don't stand much of a chance at getting any federal level law enforcement position and i think a good military background would do wonders for me upon discharge 4-6 years from now. i'm liking this idea of joining the army more and more as i think about it. Here's the thing i don't wanna just be an infantryman or whatever. i've had quite a few people i know join up and there are few i would trust my life to under fire. I want to be a specialist of some kind if the army is right for me. Idealy i'd like to become a Ranger, but don't know where to start or what my options are???
