About This Quiz

The military is a tough gig. Not all of us are cut out for it. It takes a certain amount of strength of character, self-sacrifice, patriotism, and the ability to work as part of a team to make a career out of it. Some people know that the military isn't for them, others join and get out as soon as they can, never rising above the rank of corporal, others join and know they have found their calling, they want to stay in the military for life, or at least for a number of years.

If you were one of those people, how far could you get in the military? Would you be a sergeant, who is the type of person that privates look to for example and personal training, and who teaches them discipline, personal appearance and even in some cases how to fight? 

Or maybe you would be a Lieutenant, who is kind of like a middle manager in the military, and would control the actions of a small group of soldiers?  That might not sound all that exciting, but there isn't a lot of pressure either. 

Speaking of pressure, would you be a good general? Could you handle being in charge of thousands of soldiers, and making decisions that could affect all of their lives? Take this quiz to see how far you can go in the military.
