I knew that all of this was a problem when I joined, but I still wanted to do this on my terms. I wanted to join the branch of my choice and pick my career path as well. This is why I volunteered, to do it my way.
To anyone thinking of it, I say go for it. At times it can be rough..... but looking back on it now, I'd trade thoses rough times in a heart beat for the problem I encounter now on a daily basis.
