About This Quiz

Whether you are deciding what to do with the rest of your life or you are simply wondering where you would belong in the military, this is the perfect chance for you to find out. Every branch of the military requires a special sort of personality, and after we examine yours, we'll know if you are more Army or more Marines. All you have to do is be all you can be and tell us about yourself. 

Serving in the military is an enormous responsibility, and each new recruit must undergo a battery of physical and mental aptitude tests. Before you start putting yourself through the rigors down at the local recruiting office, we think it's a good idea to know where you stand before diving in. Answering our questions is a great place to start! 

As we head through the ranks of this quiz, you'll need to choose the most precise answer to our questions. Make sure to look directly through your sights, and answer as honestly as you can. Once we see what your personality is made from, we'll compare you to the traits found in both the Army and the Marines. Then, we'll let you know where you belong! Which one will it be?
