    I recently applied to join the Aussie Military, yeah we get cork hats, a singlet, flip flops and rifle.

    Anyway I passed the initial stages of the appitutde testing and now I am looking into which path I wish to pursue.
    I was just wondering what people here have done within the military, I know some have served in the US Army, Navy etc, not sure if they still post, but I would be interested to know what career path you took and what your experiences were.

    I havent looked at possible paths yet, I plan on doing that tomorrow and after I pick a maximum of three I go for another interview which is basically a job interview for that job I picked within Aust. Defence Force.
    I am just interested in seeing what people here chose and what their experiences were like, if they care to share.

    Well back to the question of the post. I served proudly in the US Navy as a photographers mate. Various duties ranging from the mundane (grip and grin pr photos of awards and advancements ect) to the wild, (reconancence photography while hanging out the window of a helicopter, to crime scene work everything from hangings, gunshot victims, electricution, drowning, and oh yeah mind field maintence miscues). I spent five years in and after going to college for similar field (television production) I have settled into teaching.
