What then? College? A job? Travel? Maybe you aren't
thinking that far ahead. Maybe you'd like to relax and think
. it over. . .We think that's a good idea.
When school is out the road ahead is long and decisions
are hard to make on such important matters as your career,
further schooling and the sort of work you want to follow.
That's why we say "relax . . . and think it over".
And while you're "thinking it over" consider a career with
the U. S. Army and U. S. Air Force. Here are careers that offer
excellent opportunities for training in dozens of fields, plus
travel, recreation, regular advancement and excellent pay
the pay of a PFC is equivalent to civilian pay $298.93 a month.

office . . . probably you know them. They'll give you all the
details of careers with a future for you.
