When you become a serviceman or servicewoman in the US military, whether you join the Army, Navy, Marines or Air Force, you give a great deal to your country. But the military gives back. Here are 4 great benefits of joining the military today:
1. Military jobs. You’ll be highly trained and well-paid in military jobs. You can make your career from the training you get in the US military.
2. Health benefits. Once you join the military, you need never worry about healthcare costs again. While you’re on active duty and beyond your healthcare costs are covered by the US military. You’re a veteran your entire life–that’s how long the benefits last.
3. Housing. You and your family can live on a military base, or you can get a stipend that’s generally up to $1000 a month to pay for housing costs of the base. This is a perk of military jobs that you don’t hear about as often. But housing is a major expense, and if you’re in the military you don’t have to worry about it.
4. Education. You can get educated in the military and/or use the GI Bill to continue once you leave.
