Joining the Military?

If you’re graduating from high school this spring, then you’re likely thinking about your future plans. Many of your classmates are likely headed to college, while others are starting their careers either close to home or in another city. However, you’re not planning to do either of things; instead, you’ve chosen to serve your country by joining the military. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we’re proud to support our men and women in uniform, and if you need self-storage while you’re off at basic training, or once you’re deployed overseas, then we’d love to help you find the ideal space.

The Army

dreamstime_xxl_49900378The United States Army was founded on June 14, 1775, and this branch of the military has a long and storied history. You may be thinking about joining following graduation, and if you’ve applied to the U.S. Military Academy and have been accepted, then you’ll be spending the next four years in West Point, NY. This can mean that you’ll need somewhere to store your belongings while you’re gone, and once you receive your orders for deployment, you may not make a trip back to the Detroit area for some time.

The Marines

The United States Marine Corps was founded on November 10, 1775, and they have been a part of the Department of the Navy since 1834. It is the smallest of the military branches, and if you join, you’ll be sent to Parris Island, SC. After basic training, you will likely be sent to the School of Infantry in Camp Geiger, NC. This extended time away from home shouldn’t leave you with worry about the state of your belongings, and we can keep everything safe and sound until you return.

The Navy

The Navy was founded on October 13, 1775, and currently has more than 300,000 active-duty personnel and nearly 100,000 reserve-ready personnel. If your plan is to join the Navy and attend the U.S. Naval Academy, then the next four years of your life will be spent in Annapolis, MD. From there, you could be deployed to any ship around the world to complete your enlistment. If you’d rather not leave your belongings in your parent’s house or in a friend’s garage, then let us help you find the ideal self-storage solution.

The Air Force

dreamstime_xxl_17009777The Air Force was founded on August 1, 1907, and became a separate branch of the military in 1947. If your goal is to become an officer, then you’ll attend the Air Force Academy near Colorado Springs, CO. The military training and coursework can be very grueling, but when you’re finished, you can serve your country all across the globe. If you plan to have a long career in the Air Force, then let us take care of storing your things while you’re on active duty and deployed overseas.

There are other uniformed service branches of the military, including the U.S. Coast Guard, the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Officer Corps. If you’re thinking about joining any of them, and you’ll know that you’ll be away from home for an extended period of time, then visit the nearest EZ Storage® location today. Active military personnel receive a 10 percent monthly discount, and you can designate an emergency contact to manage your account while you’re gone.

Above all, we want you to feel confident that your belongings are safe and sound while you’re serving your country. Whether you’re gone for three months or three years, we will provide superior protection for your things so that you can focus on more important things.
