Field medics train to save lives 


Joining the military is a guaranteed way to get outstanding training and career opportunities.

     Not only will you receive a steady paycheck and full medical coverage in your benefits package, you will also have at your disposal many programs that make access to education easy and affordable.

     Health benefits are available for all seven branches of the Uniformed Services: the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

     TRICARE, the health plans offered to active-duty and retired military and their families, is offered to meet specific needs ranging from those wanting only standard care to servicemembers who are overseas to members of the Guard or Reserve. VA care is offered as healthcare for veterans. The My HealtheVet Program is an online tool designed to streamline healthcare needs through the internet.

     The education benefits offered through military service are what drives many individuals to serve. A college education could be worth a million dollars to you in income alone. One million dollars is the difference in average lifetime earnings between those who obtain a college degree and those who don’t! With programs including the GI Bill, Tuition Assistance from all branches of the military, the Reserve Education Assistance Program, the Veterans Education Assistance Program, the Yellow Ribbon Program, DANTES, Survivors’ & Dependents’ Education Assistance, and Veterans Upward Bound, there is an education benefit suited to your exact situation and needs.

     Veterans also have a lot of benefits at their disposal. From disability compensation to vocational programs, health care benefits and your pension, the benefits you earned from your time in the service can help you tackle transitioning back to civilian life.

     But these official benefits are not the only perks of choosing to join the military. Travel, tax cuts, cool gear and military discounts on all kinds of things from airfare, sporting event tickets, electronics, restaurants and more are all available from thousands of retailers.

     On, you’ll find info on earning money (with your education), saving money (using your benefits) and spending money (discounted!), all thanks to your service.
