Postby bucksnbirds » Fri Dec 02, 2011 9:29 pm

What do you guys plan on doing after highschool and why? I plan on joining the military, so i can fight for my country. Oh and the free college. But things can change, and if that dosnt work, I want to go to TWS (tulsa welding school) to be a certified welder. What about you guys?

Friends of mine across the hall in the dorms thought it'd be a good idea to do that and he has to drop out of college and go to the Mid East at the end of the year

Go to the University (don't know which yet) and get commissioned as an Officer in the United States Navy, hopefully working with Subs.

Hey guys, for those of you wanting to go into the military, this is something you need to think about. I joined right out of high school. I've been in now for 8 years with 3 deployments under my belt with no soon sign of it all ending. This is something you need to think about. Out of the 8 years I've been in, I've been in the states and available for 3 hunting seasons. The military life can be a great thing and I will never knock it or discourage you from wanting to do your part. It's just something that you need to think about. I was and still am a duck and goose hunting freak. It's what I live to do and now that I have a daughter, I will be passing it on to her. Again, if you think you're gonna have time to go to college and hunt and all, you need to think again. Most people on active duty military are only able to take one or two classes at the most at a time because of all their other duties with work. Same goes for hunting time. Just when you think you're gonna have time to go out for a good weekend hunt or something, work magically has a field exercise or some type of duty that needs to be taken care of. Remember, just because you are in the states, doesn't mean you won't go out on 1, 2, 3 week or even month or more field exercises. I have a daughter who will be turning 3 in a few weeks and I've only been around her for 16 months or so of the 36 months she's been alive. Again, that's due to deployment and field time. It's a HUGE commitment and you really have to weigh what you want to do. If you've made up your mind, good on you and go for it. I promise you though, it's a lot more time consuming than you think. If you wanna know more, just hit me up and I'll give it to you straight. I'm no recruiter, so I have no kind of goal to meet. I'll tell you exactly what you want to know, and I won't sugar coat it for you. Again, if you already made the decision, then awesome, go for it at 100% strength. If you're on the fence and wondering, hit me up. Have a safe summer and a great hunting season.

I not sure but have you watched the ducks unlimited show? A lot of those guys are du biologists. They get to go on a lot of hunts all over the country and Canada.

Learing a trade is great but I would not recommend welding. I am a welder and jobs are tough to find, you got to have "family in the click" to get the good jobs and then a lot of those jobs are "on the road". I am not a fan of working on the road, I have no desire to work the rest of my life out of a suit case away from my family and friends. Welding is hard heavy work & hot too, espcially in June July & August. You are not always going to be 18 think about your body when you are 50. My suggestion is HVAC all the way, folks will always need & want heat & air conditioning, business & industry too. I would also recommend insturmentation & electrical. My advice to you is "do as I say, not as I do", your body will appreciate it down the road.

My bad SC, Camp pendalton is good if you ever get shipped here because there is a bunch of hunting on the base, I heard they have good diver and sea duck hunting.

Keep in mind also that a field that has plenty of jobs right now may not have those jobs open in 4-5 years. You have to kind of look at hat direction the economy is going and guess where jobs will be available when you get out of school. A double major or even a minor in another field isn't a bad idea. Or you could come to ND and work in the oil fields for a few years to make some cash for school and go in a couple years........ :biggrin:
