About This Quiz

With standards as high as the military, you have to be made from special material to be a great fit. The military is hoping to enlist the best, the brightest and the most dedicated. The way you answer our questions will tell us if you are up to their snuff. Hopefully, you will not need to consider a drastic career change.

Signing up to protect and serve your country is not something to do on a whim. It's a huge commitment, and you are really signing your life away when you enlist. You shouldn't simply jump into the recruiter's office because you are having a moment of patriotic pride. You have to consider your lifestyle, your goals and your level of physical fitness. The military needs a balance of smart and tough, but are you smart enough and tough enough to fit the bill? 

Get into formation and stand at attention while you give away your level of military readiness. Whether you are thinking Marines or Navy, you will finally know if you can handle the military world. Are you as fit for service as you think you are? Or will you need to brush up on your ability to follow orders?
