We had a saying about combat engineers - they were infantry with a job.
Any MOS in the Army or Marines will build life skills needed to excell in life. A particular MOS may not have much civilian application, but the other things learned are invaluable.
Personally, I would suggest he join the Air Force, simply because their living conditions are so, so, much better than any other branch.
When it comes to the Army, the combat branches build a cameraderie that is unlike anything found anywhere else. Infantry, Artillery, Armor, Cavalry.

Being an MP doesn’t do much toward becoming a civilian cop, either.
There are much better choices. As a matter of fact, there are better services. The Navy’s nuclear program comes to mind.

Thanks guys for the words of advice, it kinda makes me feel better if he does chose to go. He's very quiet and reserved, hiding behind a laugh as a cover for lack of confidence. He's not shy, just quiet, almost too quiet. The responsibility and training would give him focus and realize his strengths for him to 'blossom' so to speak.
We'll see if he does follow thru with it this time and just what he chooses to do while there, and if so, this time I'll stay out of it (I hope)
