A military recruiter will have a hard time taking no for an answer, and will press you and drill you for a yes. They want to recruit more soldiers because they generally are going to earn a bonus every time that they sign up a new soldier for their branch of the military. You should not join simply because a pushy recruiter is trying to get you to, because then the liklihood will be great that you will have regrets and want to quit later on, and you may find it difficult it not completely outright impossible to do that.
When you decide that you want to join the military, you are going to want to make sure that you are doing it for you. Do it for your career goals, your school goals and your personal achievement goals, but do not join unless it is completely 100 percent your decision. Do not let your friends, your family members or any recruiters tell you to do it or not to do it, unless it is your own personal decision. Do not let anyone tell you not to try something, because if you really want to go out there and give back to your country, then that is going to have to be your own distinct decision to make and you simply cannot let anyone else have an impact on you. Make sure that you take the time to really consider what your options are rather than making a split decision and the results will definitely be more to your liking.
