Question
I am very interested in learning more languages as part of my military career. i was told by a recruiter that the only mos i could go for would be cti, which is enlisted. i have gone to college and was told by multiple people that enlisting would be a waste of my time. is there any officer's billet that i could get that involves languages and learning more of them?

Answer
Hi Franziska,

There are nothing that will guarantee you will learn another language, but you might be interested in Information Warfare officer. Be aware that officers are the managers and leaders of enlisted, and the enlisted sailors will be mostly doing the interpreting...if you really wish to learn another language, I suggest enlisting.

Expertise

I can answer any type of questions regarding the military, but more specifically, Marines, Army, and Navy. The Air Force and Coast Guard are subjects I can answer questions about, but my knowledge is rather limited in those fields. I can answer questions regarding history of, rank, structure, etc. I can also answer questions regarding any of the service academies (West Point, Naval Academy, and Air Force Academy, specifically), and Naval ROTC, Naval ROTC-Marine Option, and Army ROTC.

Experience

Much research regarding the military, and personal experiences with military. Talking to those in their respective branches has made me even more knowledgeable in the field of military for the branches I didn`t know much about before. Many interviews for research papers and such as well.
