College the big decision that all High Schoolers have to face and really the most obvious one that they know of, but what if they want something else that they felt meant that college isn’t the best option for them. Well joining a military branch is something that could give them that option and open the door to many new opportunities. The military is good alternative to going to college, however did you know that it could help you with college as well. Their are many options available to students and knowing all of them can help them make a decision.

We all know of the wonderful benefits of going to college from the people you meet there, and experiences you have, to options available to you when you have finished. In fact simply going to college can give you a better wage in any job you do get. However college does have its down side the obvious being the workload you have to debt you could potentially have. Plus what if the goals you have in life don’t necessarily need college as a factor, or you could go to college and up with a degree that you won’t even need or use.

Finally this is where the military could be of interest to anyone from those who want to go to college to those who don’t see the need to go. The military offers many jobs in many different outside of combat, paying from the day you enter boot camp to day you choose to leave. If you want to go to college the military can pay for you, offering many scholarships and opportunities to achieve your goals. But if you don’t feel that college is right for you the military can offer you a stable job with a good income, along with many new experiences that you would not have had other wise.

In the end the decision is your to make with the military and college both being suitable options. Whether you want to do both, just one, or even neither is up to you.

    Lots of helpful tips about military that I did not know about. Gave me a thought about going to military if I feel as if I can’t make it to college.

    Good stuff Henry. I have two friends that chose the military over college and they are having a blast over in their camps. Hopefully, you experience the same thing as well and wish you the best of luck.

    “However college does have its down side the obvious being the workload you have to debt you could potentially have.” This sentence needs some fixing.
