I don't know, the Navy dress whites on officer's looks pretty impressive.

To me the Army Dress Blues look squared away too. So does the Army's dress green's or whatever name is given to them.

The Army Service Uniform, or Class A. They have been or are in the process of being retired in favor of the dress blues

Hey, it's beats going into debt 100K to get a lib arts degree!

I went military right after high school and did college later on when my employer paid for it.

It depends what your goals are. Imo, if you want a career, anything other than Army. My friend is married to an Air Force pilot who has been steadily rising. My dad was a Marine which helped him get into civil service and then he was concurrently a reserve member for 20 years, iirc.
No disrespect to Army but I think the other branches subconsciously carry more weight/respect bc there's an idea of needing more skill in the other branches.

A US Marine is, first and foremost, a warrior in a Corps of warriors having a 240-year history of honor, sacrifice, and mission accomplishment.
There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion.
-------- General William Thornson, U.S. Army

I think ALL military branches are badass (for lack of a better word) in their own ways. As a civilian, I love Marine Corps the most

.I think the USMC has earned the right to be considered one of the best fighting forces in the world. The Corps has fought in every war and conflict in which the USA has been involved. Yes, they have the most gorgeous dress blues uniform.

The Few, The proud, The Marines. I respect and love these legendary warriors.
