Why I decided to enlist in the military
After a great deal of thought and consideration, I chose to enlist in the military for the many opportunities, including traveling abroad and education, afforded with my enlistment. Seeing the world is something I have wanted to do for a long time, and the education benefits, both while serving and after, are great.

Why I decided to the Navy
Researching the different branches and discussing with a number of friends and family who have served, I decided the Navy best fit my personality and desire to travel and continue my education. The Navy’s Nuclear program matched up very well with my education goals, and the options available for education opportunities after I serve or reenlist seemed to be the best of all the branches.
