Jsu, I can only say that I know of two young chaps who joined the Canadian military and received basic training, and a spectacular education along with it. One went back into the Canadian military and is living in Ottawa; transferred to training in Navy Seals and is still with them and enjoying postings all over the world. The other learned IT and is now a computer technician in civilian life. So, phone them, see what they offer and go from there.
I don't know what the US military offer.
