    Should I join the air force or the navy

    I was looking to either join the air force or the navy, and I wanted to see if anyone here had any experience.

    No army for me, and I'm hoping for an education along the way. I know the navy provides an education, but does the air force?

    Also, what would a daily schedule be like for me, and how many years do you typically serve to get a college scholarship?

    Thanks,
    Terrance

    I don't know what country you're from, but here in Canada the Air Force is much better than Navy.

    Salary, Education, everything is the same... but the airforce has more trades which are useful once/if you get out. Plus, the quality of living is much better in the Air Force.

    My father has been in the Navy for 40 years. Awhile back, my brother was looking to get into the Military and he was urged by daddy to join the Air Force, not the Navy.

    I believe you have to serve for 5 years after you graduate. (All expenses paid)

    what do you mean 5 years after you graduate?

    Also, would I be able to get a bachelors degree while serving in the air force?

    And I'm in America

    thanks,

    but do they offer bachelors degree at their community college?

    Also, are there jobs and ways to earn money in the air force?

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure they only offer associate degrees, unfortunately.

    I'd like to have used the tuition money for a graduate degree.

    If they don't have computer science in the air force, I'm dead, it's the only thing I'd know coming in

    i would join the air force simply to be able to have the chance to fly.....that would be awesome to fly a jet...much better (in my opinion of course) than sailing on boats all the time...

    "Should I join the Air Force or the Navy?"

    Hmmm, should I shoot myself in the left foot or the right foot?

    How quickly do I want to die?

    Do I get airsick or seasick?

    Are you actually going to choose to go to the navy or the air force based on the results from the pole, or did you just want opinions from others?

    Your best bet is to talk to your local Armed Forces recruiters for the two branches.

    Why not consider the Army or Marines?

    You should join the Navy. They can provide a good education.
    Also if you want to fly, FLY NAVY!. Navy pilots are the best in the world , in my opinion.

    GO NAVY!
