Default in need of some advice

Well I have been home from being in the Marines for about 2 months I have a lot of free time now. I am brand new to striper fishing. The major part of my fishing is from the beach
I was thinking of purchasing a surf rod and a conventional reel.

Daiwa beefstick 12'
Pen Defiance reel

Don't know if that would be a good setup for me or not and my funds are limited :scurrently unemploymed

I can't give you any advice about tackle as I'm still figuring it out myself, but I just wanted to say thank you for your service.

The penn defiance is not a good choice for a casting reel it's more suited for deep sea
fishing. If you are sold on penn products check out the 965 or 975 international i have had one for many years and it is solid. If you want something cheaper check out abu garcia they are also solid. You should first decide what line you want to use and how much you would like the reel to hold and gofrom there.
And thank you for your service
