I wasn't ever in any of the armed forces. But I was on the receiving end of the coasties once and was really impressed with their skills. The problem is that the coast guard is really looked down upon by the other armed forces. I'm not going to bash the coasties, but you may want to at least consider the navy. Enough said. When you enter, you'll be given an exam from which they will determine your capacity in the armed forces. You do good and the future is bright. If you do poorly, well, you'll make a good target while carrying a rifle. Do you understand? Try to get in for OCS. You'll get a college education and you'll never regret being an officer. There are many, many more benefits to being an officer. One is that the officers never scrub toilets. Might not be a big thing, but there are alot of toilets that need scrubbing in the military. Grades and such isn't really important to the military (you don't need to smart to be a target), but being drug free and not having a record is extremely important. If you don't pass the drug test you are OUT! It's that simple. And trust me, it takes a really, really long time for your system to flush clean. You even being around other pot users will cause you to fail your test. Can you hear me now?
