Is $1,757 per month (before tax) going to be fine with you. Don't count housing since they'll provide housing.
Think this through, it's not like you're just gonna work another job it's a whole change of lifestyle. It's easier when you're 18.
Honestly I couldn't do it now, even though I'm still within the age range but it was a lot easier when I was 18. It was like a bad nightmare, okay it wasn't too bad I was just outta shape.
Yes life after the military is very important, don't choose to be a mechanic and then expect to work in an office after you get out.
