If I re-enlist in the USMC for six more years, I could afford to buy my dream car with the cash bonus and get out at 27 years old. Is it worth it Veeky Forums???

Or you could get a private sector job and build your career for 6 years.

You poor Amerifats get shit pay in the military, far worse than Leafs do. I'd join the Air Force instead of getting yelled at and ruining your body.

Go for it, everyone that's blown 100% of their enlistment bonus on a toy or other depreciating asset has turned out to be a huge success

i'd say do it but not for the car.
I did my 7 year stint in the USMC from 18-25.
Got a pretty lame communication degree from online classes but military paid for it and it was easy.
That much military history with any kind of education beyond high school is an instant job in factories/government plants/high paying clerical jobs in those factories/etc.

29 now and no regrets at all. 115k as a Safety manager for a can factory.

You realize there are a lot of positions in the marines other than infantry right? Jet pilot? Welcome to Delta, here's a great paying job. Anything IT? You had how long of an enlistment? There is X years of experience and security clearances out the ass. Transportation wing? Great. Tons of mechanical experience. CE? Plumbing, structural, or hvac? awesome, construction jobs pay well. Were you a senior nco or officer? You have management skills and discipline that is rare in the civilian sector. Welcome aboard.

Military is more than point the gun and kill stuff.

I have an elise and love it, but i would never do/be any of these things for one. I dont think there's any car id be in the military and end up at a can factory for, but if you're up for it, I hope you're shooting for something insanely better than any Lotus.. at least some kind of supercar/hypercar?

@massdebater
any kind of factory will usually have this position.
Why would I shoot for a ridiciously expensive car?
You realize 115k really isn't "rich" status right?
My take home is around 4200 a month after all taxes/401k.

My house is 15year loan, I pay a bit extra month but that's $1200/mo
$1000 into savings each month.
Groceries, fuel, and other necessities total around $1000/mo.

That leave around ~$1000/mo
Sure I save money but I invest a lot too.
It doesn't give me enough of a safety net to go buy a 100k+ car.

Right now I have my 87 Iroc, 99 FRC c5, and my 06 Ram dd. I'm plenty happy as is for now. After market value drops a bit more I plan to pick up a c6 z06, that's as close to "super car" as I'll get.
