I'm looking into the different military options and trying to figure out if it would be worth it and what the best branch of service would be. I'm getting married this coming spring, and don't want to spend a lot of time away from my wife (obviously). I've heard that the Navy would give me the best chance of staying out of Iraq, and someone told me that the dentists don't get on the ships and stay out for 6 months but they just make sure everyone who does ship out is good to go. Is this true? Any current military dentists out there feel free to give me your 2 cents on what the pros and cons are of each branch.
