Enough quals for an entry level security role?

Hi everyone, I need your advice. I’m currently in the army and i deal with reimaging, Active directory, compliance, and system troubleshooting on a day to day basis. My role is basically a sys admin and I’ll have 4 yrs of exp by the time I separate. I currently have a+, sec +, and CCNA, and currently going for my cysa +. I have received a lot of different opinions as far as being able to land an entry lvl sec role and just wanted to know if I have enough qualifications to meet that and land that role. I also wanted some advice on what I should do next after cysa +. I’ve been recommended everything from learning powershell, to going for ccnp security, to doing blue team labs on tryhackme. I’ve also been told I should reenlist for 17C and do that before getting out. Should I be looking at soc roles or security analyst roles? What should my salary expectations be with my exp and certs? I appreciate the helpful input.
