I am just finishing up my second year of law school and seriously considering joining the JAG (and possibly the regular forces) upon graduation. I have always wanted to be a member of the armed forces but never really seriously considered it until now. I am wondering if anyone can provide some insight into what the job of JAG entails? Will I get to go out into the field etc.? Is the JAG a respectable position within the armed forces? I have heard that individuals who enter armed forces after completing higher education aren't given much respect, probably deservedly so, as many grads tend to carry a sense of entitlement and possible arrogance (and apparently because they are automatically officers?). In any case, I would prefer to earn respect, rather than have it handed to me as a result of having a university education, so should I decide to simply join the regular forces, how would my education affect me? Any responses you guys could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Brohan.
