I have been thinking about enlisting in the military. I am 33 years old with a college education. I am tired of my career choice and while I make decent money there is absolutely no enjoyment for me. One of my biggest regrets is not serving my country. If I had it to do over, I would have gone into the military after high school or joined ROTC in college. From what I can find currently I am eligible for Navy OCS or to enlist in the Army. Because of my age all other branches and OCS are out. Does anyone know someone who joined the military later in life and how did it work out for them? I know it will be a lot of hard work and I need to lose some weight before I can even enlist, but it seems that defending our country is a good way to spend your day, nights and weekends. Also, any opinions on the National Guard?
