Is enlisting in the military a good financial decision for a 35 year old neet who has no employment prospects and is about to lose everything in crypto? I know I'm already too old for most branches but I can still join the air force or navy.

Can you even pass physical?
Do you have to be physically fit before you enlist? I thought they took anyone and then made you get fit in boot camp.
If it's a choice between hanging yourself and joining the military, yeah sure. Enlist.
No. Standards have completely hit rock bottom.
>If it's a choice between hanging yourself and joining the military
It pretty much is. Once I lose the last of the money I have left to live on the only option left is suicide.
I got disqualified for a physical disability. Social net failed I'm early 20's.
no but they will eat your ass off to get you fit
Trust me, you want to be at least a little fit before you start boot camp. It will make it a lot easier. If you’re serious about enlisting you should be exercising and working out now.
It can be. If you can stick it out 20 years without getting separated for physical deficiency you can get a sweet pension. However if you're not landing a technical field you'll wash out real fast due to relentless grunt work and bullying.
How do you get a technical job? Do they tell you what you'll be doing before you even enlist?
Assuming it hasn't changed much since I was dumb enough to join, you take the ASVAB test, it figures out what jobs you're well-suited for, and you get to choose which specialty you will train for if you're qualified.
They told me I could do some nuclear shit. I backed out because they were too pushy and I didn't believe them
Do you get to know for sure what you'll be doing before you sign to enlist or can they bait and switch you?
They have you sign a contract that guarantees you will be trained in the job you select.
But they can assign you to any role depending on the needs of the service.
You're only assured that you'll receive the job training you select. Once you're done with that, they can have you doing absolutely anything.
You're still young enough for federal law enforcement. Do that instead.
Fuck the military. The pay is shit compared to what he make as a FBI glownagger. Plus less stress and he can pick where he lives
>navy A-school instructor
i just had a student who was 37 come through my course. as long as you're not a complete medical meltdown or a (modern day) fat fuck you'll be alright.
most will treat you with more dignity because of your age but you'll be considered a failure because you had to join so late. think last picked for PE class.
anything after 25 makes everyone around you think "how did you fuck up this bad" because roughly $800 a paycheck is pretty shit for a career aged adult.
You must be able to pass penis inspection and butthole inspection
You can get civilian jobs with the military, too. Airforce has the best amenities, so talk with a recruiter when you can. Sure, some may get picky about age, but they need people. Go for it.
I'm 28, turning 29 this year. My plan is to try to join the Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard and get the SERE Specialist job, and then try to get another part-time job, preferably something related to IT. Maybe go to graduate school. Problem is I've ghosted a Marine Corps recruiter and an Air Force recruiter before, and last I talked with them, the MEPS doctor was asking for shit that I already gave a doctor's note for, saying "X person has never had Y problem, there are no documents regarding Y". And then the MEPS doctor just asked for it again. That basically told me they wanted my full medical history, which would take them a year to get through anyway, and shit was going on in my personal life. But I'm still working out, trying to meet a perfect Marine Corp PT score. I have no confidence and no trust in anything. Trying to look for a part-time job right now.
Consider going part-time military, OP.
Not OP, but best wishes on your new career path, proud of you
Just gotta keep going. Thank you.
