Air force, if you want the better family housing, living conditions and better locations.
I was always absolutely astounded at the desparity in the living coniditions between the Marines/Navy and the Air Force when I was overseas. There is no comparison. Better barraks, more privledges, better exchanges, restraunts, better E clubs and nice bases around the world that you actually stand a chance of getting stationed at. Doesnt mean you wont work when your an Airmen, I'm just saying your conditions over all would be completely different/better.
The atmosphere is different too. Theres a reason they dont even accept prior enlisted from certain other services.
