Air Force vet here. Did communications work, not really /cyber/ stuff but close-ish.
I joined because I was a depressive shit in high school who almost flunked and knew I would do the same thing if I'd gone to college. I joined up, got through training and lived in Germany for a year. It was just as boring as living at home. I didn't really meet any people I couldn't have elsewhere, and I didn't develop any self-discipline, just was forced to do things and went along because I knew I'd get fucked if I didn't.
I don't really think the military is going to magically give you the things you want out of life. It certainly didn't for me. What it might teach you is that you have to find those things yourself. That's what I learned. So join if you're in a rut, the benefits really can't be beat. 4 years is a long time though.>>2086
Sounds like you were in the army. >my GI bill wouldn't even cover my first year's tuition before it ran out
How in the hell did you manage that? That literally shouldn't be possible unless you went to some ridiculously expensive scam school. You should have gotten 48 months at any public institution.
