Advise to Young Man Who Wants to Join the Military

My son graduates high school next year and wants to join the military. He loves guns - has tons of knowledge about all kinds of guns. Wants to be a gunsmith someday.
What advise would you give him as far as what branch to join, what MOS would be best to prep him for a career as a gunsmith?


My suggestion would be to enlist in the USMC. He will need to speak with his recruiter to ensure he’s guaranteed the MOS of 2111 which is “Small Arms Repairer/Technician.”
