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? Would the military survive cyber attacks if there weren't tech professional there to make sure protective and preventative measures work? Would the public know what was going on in the military if journalists weren't there to document what was going on on the inside? And would the military's equipment be as great as it is if there weren't engineers to make changes and upgrade them often?
