I'm considering different careers in the Military, and one of them that I am curious about is being a JA in either the Army, Navy, or Marine Corps. Are any members of this forum current/former Judge Advocates? If so, could you discuss your experiences/views on your career? Can any other servicemembers speak to how JAs are viewed/treated in the military? Once you become a Judge Advocate, what determines your specific job, i.e. prosecutor, defense attorney, operational law, etc? I would like to attend USMA or USNA or possibly ROTC, and I do understand that most JAs do not come from those commissioning sources, but I have found a lot of information on the Army's Funded Legal Education Program (FLEP) online, and that made me curious. Can anyone speak to how competitive it is to win a FLEP spot? Does the Navy have a similar program? I would also like to say that I am not dead set on being a lawyer and if I understand that if I was it would be best to commission after college, I am just trying to gather information about various careers. Thanks!
