I have summers between school, and Christmas, etc.

I also found out that because my dad is still technically a resident of New Hampshire, and I can apply for nominations from congressmen in New Hampshire and Alabama.

Well good luck! Long process but definitely worth it. Cheers.

First, pay off any debts, such as car loans, mortgage (doubt you have one as you're in high school), etc. If our money, one day, becomes worthless, at least you'll have your posessions paid off.

Since you're in high school, enjoy your youth. I didn't save anything when I was that young, and I have no regrets. Now that I'm older, I save some, but not as much as some would. I enjoy stimulating our economy. You could die tomorrow, and you can't take a huge savings account with you, but you can enjoy the things you buy today.

Or, you can live a good long time and be forced to live on the dole when your own income fails. Planning to suck deeply at the teat of the taxpayers is not a cool plan.

Great advice, my grandfather would rather me spend it on something I would enjoy instead of just saving it. I already have plenty in my savings account and stand to make money in college.

I'm planning on military service, so unemployment isn't a concern.

In that case, buy a gun. Value won't go down and you will keep it the rest of your life. Unlike the JEEP. It will also prepare you for the service should you ever join up.

Dad won't let me. Plus it would just sit at home while I'm at school.

How sad is that. And we wonder why this country is so screwed up.

i would look back at what has been going on and whos running the show for the past 10+ years and really think long and hard about joining the service. occupying someone elses country for economic and fictional political reasons is not fighting for American freedom. ask your grandpa what he thinks you should do with the money or what he would do with it. hes probably got some very good advice.

Ask your grandpa what he would do with it when he was young, and what he would do with it now.
