If you had to serve in a different branch of the Armed Forces, which one would it be? Why?

I voted the United States Coast Guard. I enjoy being on the water. I would probably change my rating of OS to another rating.

Since I couldn't get in the Navy in '68, I sometimes wonder what would have happened? I had an uncle that was stationed at Pearl Harbor on 12/7/1941. He was a torpedoman first class.

Tried to join the AF in 1991 but they were not accepting electronics technicians for some reason at that time.  Made the correct choice and joined the NAVY.

Air Force or Coast Guard, I am just not wired for Army or Marines. I am not Gun Ho enough... Alot of Army in my family I was one of the few Navy. I wanted Travel aso I passed on the Air Force.

Uva7, given you love to fly, some of the best pilots in the world are Marines.

I originally planed on enlisting in the Marines, with an intent on going to tank school, but, I was 17 and my dad refused to sign the enlistment papers.

By the time I turned 18, I decided to go into the Navy and the rest is history.

i agree with you keith....    just figured it would be easier to be air crew in the air force than the marines.....   remember , i applied for the marines before i joined the navy....

Marines is the only one I did not test for. They all said I would make a good clerk of somekind. Hell no brown shoe for me. Don't think I would change. Maybe more study time than party time though.
