    Have fun Swagman. Going to play single player games, or risk swimming in the ocean of chimneysweeps and play multiplayer?

    Unfortunately, all the kids who want to join the military in my HS only want to join to "kill towel-heads". It's kinda scary.


    But joining as a non-combatant does seem to have its perks.

    I ask that all the time. Swag's response is basically the answer for me. In hindsight I would tell anyone to go into the military in some form instead of college. I have worked with a bunch of ex military guys and some still in it. The benefits are insane. Salary may be on the low end, but when you get groceries, rent, and other essentials already covered it is meaningless.
    At 23, without any sort of college (this is untrue, but for our purposes it was) and only a middle-grade enlisted personnel based out of Maryland (this is important, because the number I factor in is going to include my insane housing allowance) I was pulling about $75,000 a year if you factor in benefits. That does NOT include veteran's benefits, such as the fact I'm literally getting PAID to earn a free bachelor's degree.

    Anybody that says there's no money to be made in the military is a ****ing moron.

    Like IR said here, the "salary" itself tends to be relatively low...but there's nothing a 'regular' bottom tier guy needs to spend money on, besides haircuts and maybe a cell phone. The current payscale is roughly $1,700 a month for an E-2 fresh out of basic. Okay, so for a single 18 year old, that's going to be probably $1,300 a month right out of highschool. With no rent (now we're at 2,200 a month after taxes), groceries ($2,500), insurance ($2,700), or education costs (let's go conservative and say $3,100).

    I sure wish I was pulling $45,000 a year right out of HS.
