About This Quiz

Are you cut out for the military? There are a lot of different branches of the military, whether it be the United States Marines Corps, the Army, the Navy, the Coast Guard, or the Air Force. If you're thinking about signing up, getting some fantastic skills, and serving your country, you have some tough decisions in front of you. The United States Air Force is cool, there is no doubt about it, out of all the different military branches, they are probably the most proficient when it comes to technology, and usually, people that join are the most highly educated. Oh, and you also get to fly around in a plane! How cool is that? 

With all that said, there are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to joining the United States Air Force. The military is not for everyone, and if it's not for you, that doesn't make you a bad person: all of us are different.  And although the United States  Air Force is naturally focused on flying, only a small percentage of recruits wind up in the air, most of them are doing other jobs. We know these things are confusing, "Top Gun" was about the Navy after all. Are you ready to "Aim High, Fly-Fight-Win"? Take this quiz to find out.
