Short and sweet from another military.
I wasn't combat. Did a relatively low stress desk job, never deployed.. I would still say no or you.
after 3 years, with housing allowance and such, I was making probably 30-40k a year if you be fair with your calculating and add up the benefits, etc.
During construction season I worked 14-16 hour days, but winters i'd get easy hours.
But yes, if you're smart with your money you can save money. With a new car payment and insurance, I was still able to put 2-300 in savings each month and that was WITH the trip to the bar on most friday/saturday nights.
I wasn't even really focused on saving money that much other then trying to when I could.
I don't regret it because i'm gonna be going back to Uni next year and get paid to do it instead of paying to do it.
However, you having a degree and shit, I'd say don't do it. The only difference between how successful and far you can go with your degree as opposed ot in the military is based on the time you put in. The only difference is the military will force you to put it in -- therefore it's easier in the sense that you don't have to hold yourself quite as accountable for moving forward as much.
pro's: got me in shape, kicked some laziness out of me, free education.
con's: social life sucked already, suffered more. Worked shitty hours. Surrounded by dumb asses, overly zealous douchebags, or radically conservative buzzkills.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
