I'm in the New York Army national Guard and I love it. I have done everything from unit administrator to military Police and now I am working as a JNN operator/maintainer (well I am in charge of the section but I got the MOS, lol). Are you gonna get deployed???count on it I am prepping for my 3rd deployment. Are you gonna be put in a situation where you have to protect yourself or another soldier? Maybe. during the initial invasions it was more common due to the fact that the damn Marines dont secure areas after the "take" them so we have to resecure an area that was supposed to be cleared (MPs). Nowadays you pretty much fly to the closest base and you get escorted by MPs or infantry to where you gotta go, the roads are constantly patrolled and the intelligence is pretty good...most likely you wont have to take anyones life. you dont strike me as the kick ass and take names type of guy so i suggest you go for a job as admin or computer job because anything else will require you to leave the wire at least a few times and I personally dont want anyone out the wire that doesnt have my back. you probably should look into the airforce but stay away from their security forces as well. good luck.
