About This Quiz

Joining the military isn't just like a job; you can't just quit if you don't like what you signed up for and join something else. That is why it is really important for anyone thinking of signing up for the service to think long and hard about which branch is best for them. There are two basic things that one has to think about when trying to sign up for the military, one is what branch is most suitable for their personality, and another is what branch is most suited to their life skills.

The Army is sort of the Swiss Army knife of the military branches; there are hundreds of different things you can do there that will prepare you for civilian jobs, so many life skills apply. The Marines has the hardest boot camp, only the toughest can survive. The Air Force is known as the military branch that is most focused on technology and education, while the Navy is good for those who like to travel, like the sea and love to be a part of a group. What branch of the military should you join based on your life skills? Take this quiz and find out.
