So I am currently applying to USMA, USAFA, and the 4-year ROTC scholarship. I have no doubt in my mind that I will achieve one of the above and commission as an Officer. I am fairly far along, having completed most of the applications and attended some interviews. However, although I see myself as an intelligent person and I feel like I would thrive in an academic atmosphere, I very much want to enlist and do things vs. plan them. I do not have a "glory and honor" view of combat; I just want to serve my country, preferably in a combat-arms MOS. I am conflicted, and I would appreciate the insight and wisdom from those who know better than I on both sides of the topic: enlistment or commission.
