Making the big decision to join a Uniformed Service of the United States can be a daunting task and one that requires a significant amount of self-assessment. The institution that you choose can change if you decide to transfer, but signing a military contract is a binding decision that is not easily undone. That being said, it is an option that many people consider and one that can create a great career…including myself.
As you may have guessed by my photo above, I am an officer in the NY Army National Guard and received my degree from Grove City College – so I understand some of the thoughts going through your mind. My first piece of advice: pray. While this can be the most important advice for any form of self-assessment, I encourage you to include prayer as your starting point for this decision because of the sacrificial nature of the military commitment. Before I go further, let me say that I am glad to hear you are interested in Grove City College and I commend your desire to serve this country.
