Journal palegray.net's Journal: Joining The Navy After High School - A Slashdotter's View

As many of the folks on my friends list know, I'm an active duty member of the United States Navy. Prior to enlistment, I spent a few years as a general I.T. nerd, doing software development (desktop and web applications, mostly on Linux) and network security work. At age 25, I made the decision to enlist in the Navy, and have been extremely happy with my decision ever since.

In my somewhat limited spare time, I maintain an educational resources web site. I take a great deal of pride in my job in the Navy, and have written an article for people thinking about enlisting after high school. I enlisted a bit later in life, but I hope I'll still be able to relate to folks in the 18-20 year old range.

Please feel free to give me feedback on the article, and I'll do my best to answer any questions my fellow geeks may have regarding military service.
