This is pretty much exactly a story of my life, except I was in the Army for 27 years and I did not take advantage of going to college.
James, I would recommend that when you see the recruiter, have him/her see if your qualifications and education can lead to you becoming an Officer in what ever service that you might choose. Life will be a lot easier and the pay better, too!
