About This Quiz

Being a member of any of the armed forces is an honor and a privilege! For this quiz, we are going to focus on your skills as a soldier or as a marine. Whether you've served in the military or you are wondering where you would fit in, we're here to tell you if you are better suited for the Army or the USMC.

As opposed to sailors or airmen, soldiers and marines are built to handle conflict while in the toughest of circumstances. From hand-to-hand combat to military strategy, both soldiers and marines are trained to survive and thrive when the odds are against them. Once we learn how you handle yourself, it will be clear which of the two you are at heart. 

Throughout our soldier or marine quiz, we will put your skills and your attitudes to the test. The way you respond to our questions will make your role in the military quite clear. While soldiers and marines are similar, some differences set them apart. With military precision, your answers will lead us down the path to knowing which one you are. 

Lace up your boots, and march to the front of the lines. Then, you'll find out if you are a soldier or a Marine!
