I was never cut out for the military and I always knew it, but the Red Cross, Peace Corps, volunteerism that is meaningful and long term, if it were a requirement, even if it were run like the military...I'd do it, and it would have given me more direction those years I was in college and didn't know what to do next with my life and didn't know who I was. If I had no familial responsibilities now, I'd do it at this stage in my life.

Just a thought.
