Neither. Both serve different purposes but are vital to our nations defense in different ways. If you are asking which one is more enjoyable to serve in, that is a hard question to answer as well. Several factors come into play.

1. Location
2. MOS/Job Type
3. People/Leadership

SGT Tony Clifford - Yes, SSG Palmer's response was diplomatic because the question itself was basic.

Not better. Different. It's more like which one is more aptly suited for the particular job you want done.

Iman Miles - not knowing how to swim is okay. I'm sure the same is for the Navy, but in the Marines we were taught how to swim for qualifications. In basic there were several of recruits that couldn't swim or had never even tried to swim. As long as you pay attention to your instructors and perform as they direct, you will be just fine. Just like 90% of basic training, not being able to swim is all in your head.

Iman Miles - I would also suggest that when speaking to a recruiter, let them know your concerns about swimming and request that they take you to learn more on water survival techniques. A good recruiter would most likely jump at this opportunity.

Also, if you are not WSQ1, if you embark on board one our fine sailing vessels, a secondary or thirdly (Yes it is a word) you will be assigned to damage control. The thinking behind this is, whom will fight more bravely to keep the ship afloat? The people who can't swim so well.

Join the Air Force. my sons in 8 years and he's testing for Master Sgt. Depending on the mos less deployments. Don't judge your career based on boot camp, that's only a few months out of your life.
