About This Quiz

During your time in the military, you were surrounded by a support system like no other. Your peers became your family, and they became part of your life. Once you tell us all about them, we'll be able to figure out which branch of the military you served in. 

Whether you were surrounded by a bunch of tough but tenderhearted Marines or your friends were the nerds that kept the Navy's technological systems humming, your military family were a valuable part of the time you spent in the service. During this quiz, we are going to ask you about their traits, their hobbies and the things you did together. By the time you're done describing them, we'll be able to figure out if your military family were airmen or soldiers. 

Each branch of the military instilled a different set of traits and attitudes in you and each person in your military family. Once you fill us in on all the details of your relationships and why they meant so much to you, the branch you all called home will be clear. Choose the answer that you feel best represents your military Brady Bunch, and we'll take our best shot at the branch you joined before you knew them!
