From some of your comments, I can tell you have a good head on your shoulders. That will serve you well in the military or in civilian life.
I can say this honestly, that I would not be where I'm at today without the military. And despite what most people on this board think, I didn't have to kill any babies to do it. I respectfully disagree with many on this board that believe that if you are part of the military, then it makes you guilty of murder. I just don't buy it. My conscience is clear.
There are plenty of examples of patriots (and I mean that in our sense, not in the traditional American's sense) in the military. Look up Michael New and Hugh Thompson Jr. Specifically Hugh Thompson, Jr, who landed his helicopter between American soldiers and Vietnamese civilians to stop the My Lai massacre. Imagine if he had gotten out of ROTC, who is there, boots on the ground stopping murder and other war atrocities? That could be you.
I understand your loss in faith of military leadership, time for liberty-minded people to step into those positions. Think about it. Everywhere else we (liberty-minded people) say that we need to infiltrate and take over where wrongdoing is taking place (GOP, politics in general, police) in order to make them do their constitutional job. Why is it different with the military. I can admit that the majority of the military are sheep that will do WHATEVER they are told WHENEVER they are told to do it. I cannot stress enough how much I believe we need liberty minded officers in the military.
Here's another example, although fiction. Ever watch the TV show Last Resort? I highly recommend it if you haven't. In an extremely brief summary: US government goes whack, tells a nuclear sub to nuke Pakistan, and the Captain of the sub says "No." Great show! This is the kind of stuff I'm talking about.
Final note for now:
In order for you to stay in, you need to change your mindset into what your role will be. You don't have to be a pawn if you don't let them make you a pawn. But if your mindset doesn't change and you remain with how you're thinking now, then yes, you need to get out. Feel free to PM me, I may even be able to find the guy that got out and find out exactly went down. It was all pretty quiet. One day he was there, next day he wasn't.
Best of luck
Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty. -Thomas Jefferson
