Part III Response


4. Which of the 3 military jobs would you like best? Why?
I liked the Public Affairs Broadcast Specialist because it doesnt involve actual
combat and I think it would be fun to be a broadcaster.
5. Did you know that this job existed before? Or, are you surprised that it exists?
I am surprised that this job exists because I didnt realize there were so many
noncombat jobs in the military.
6. Now that youve looked into this career, do you think it might be a good option for you? Weigh
the pros and cons of military service, government benefits, and being able to transition into a
civilian career with the other paths to the career (usually college).
Some of the pros of military service are all the benefits you receive. It would be
very helpful in providing for your family with all of the financial aid. It is also a
much respected career and it would be easy to transition into a civilian career
afterwards. However, some of the cons of military service are that you are more
likely to die in this career than any of the other fields. This job also requires you to
be away from your family and civilization for years at a time. Also many times
people suffer from PTSD after the service and that can affect you or the rest of
your life. Therefore I do not think the military service is a good option for me.
