Air Force or Marines??

My oldest son has decided he wants to go into the military.

He is undecided on the branch, but has narrowed it down to Air Force or Marines. He wants to be in law enforcement.

The husband was Navy, but Cody has vetoed that. Lol

Can anyone give the good, bad and ugly of the two??

As a mom, I am so proud of him, but my heart breaks at the same time.

I was in the Marines, and can't tell you how awesome it was.  it was fantastic.  the air force is for pussies.  no offense.  :)

Air Force! Higher pay and he will receive training that will carry over into civilian life when/if he decides he's done.

That's not true... Pay depends on rank.

Who ever will not screw him over in his contract and whoever likes his asvab score :-). Everyone branch wise is downsizing so it's difficult. at least that's my understanding.
