Hello everyone, New member here and this site has helped me a great deal in gaining information. I've been interested in the military since I was a boy and it's always been on the back of my mind. So I thought I'd finally join the community and maybe ultimately join the military. I've recently graduated from the University of Illinois with a bachelor's in aerospace engineering, and even though UofI has several ROTC programs, I didn't seriously consider the military until now. So, I am a little late, but it's not too late yet. I am in love with aircraft, hence my major, and I have my private pilot's license and am thinking about getting my instrument rating (depending on how soon I go to OTS or OCS). But ever since my first flight, I was hooked. So, I would fight my hardest to become an aviator in either the air force or marines. I know becoming an aviator is extremely difficult, but I'd rather fight to become the best and fail than never try at all. In the end, I'd become the best that I could ever have hoped to be while defending our nation. Thank you so much for your help!
