I am thinking of joing up with the army when old enough, although I don't know witch branch would best suit a radio electronics based career. Anyone have any ideas?

I would assume the air force. They also have the best educational perks, at least that is what I hear.

Ya, I would definetely say that the Navy and Airforce would be your best bet. I have a tip for you though if you want to join the Air Force or the Navy: DON'T GET IN ANY TROUBLE WITH THE LAW!!!
I have three Mistemeanors on my record from when I was younger, and I tryed to join the Navy when I was 18, and I could not get in due to them. The mistemeanors included: A ticket for noise violation when I was 13 years old for playing my drums too loud. I got caught steeling a pair of shoes (which were on sale for 22 dollars), when I was 14. And I got a DUI when I was 18, but it was dropped down to a misdemeanor.
They said that if I had only had that DUI, then I could join (since it was not a fellony), but since I had those other two things on my record I could not. I really tried to join too. I tried for about a year, and eventually they told me there is no possible way to join. The only branch I could still join was the Army.
So don't get into trouble.

Well, I'd have to say that a DUI (while under the legal drinking age, no less) indicates a serious lack of personal responsibility. I wouldn't expect that the armed forces would want such irresponsible people.

The navy would take him, but the army did.

I just though that was kinda rude what you said " serious lack of personal responsibility"

Screw you man. You don't know me. Ya, I bet you are just perfect, and never did anything stupid when you were young. You seriously have offended me budy. I was just trying to tell him not to make a stupid mistake I made.

Right on McCornick, that was rude of chroot. Dude, I respect you chroot, but I am a little pissed about what you said about me. You could have said something along the lines of: "I agree with Nothing000, make sure to stay out of trouble." Or something like that.

I just have a rather strong contempt for drunk drivers. If you knew how badly such drivers have affected my life, you'd probably share my contempt.

Sorry to hear that, although he must share that same contempt becuase he was not promoting it at all, just calling on an old mistake, so...

Their wasn't any need for the harsh words.

Yes, I am very much against drunk driving. It is no joke. My dad was in prison when I was growing up, and I met this guy in there one time when I was visiting my dad and the guy got drunk on his 21st birthday and ended up driving his car and killing someone. He was sentenced to 20 years (he had already been in for 9 when I met him). That kind of stuff happens ALL the time. When people choose to drink and drive they not only ruin inocent peoples lifes, but they usually ruin their own as well.
So let me just say it again: don't do anything stupid like drink and drive.
