My question is about my future career and what is the best way to save and manage my finances. I joined the United States Navy to fulfill one of my childhood dreams. I understand that i will be making between 1300-1500 dollars base pay and this pay will increase on a yearly basis as well as my rank gets higher. This pay does not include housing/bills/food there will be separate incentives for those. Now whats the best way to plan for my future, my retirement, a future vehicle, and a future house. I plan to sign up for the GI bill to get money for college. Im enlisted for four years but im still not sure if i want to go to college or make a career out of this.
