Hello I'm currently a senior in highschool and I considering to enlist rather than going to college first and attending the rotc program. I have the grades and all to get into college but in my honest opinion I feel like I need to grow and learn or become a better person because of this reason I feel like I shouldnt jump into becoming an officer just yet. I also believe in order to become a better leader it would be good to have some experience and understand what it's like to be enlisted. It would be a great help if someone would shed some light on why I should or shouldnt enlist first. Furthermore sorry if this post was really long.
