About This Quiz

The military exists to defend this fine country and help its allies if there is a need for it. But when people think of the military, the first thing that usually comes to mind are soldiers, guns and battle. While that isn't necessarily a bad thing to do, there is so much more to the military than going out and fighting. 

Some of the most important and most sought-after jobs in the military doesn't require the use of a gun or weapon. Take for example a medical assistant or doctor. Could our soldiers survive their injuries if there weren't people on and off the field to patch them up?
