About This Quiz

You know you can handle the military. You're tough, you work hard, you're disciplined and you're as patriotic as they come. You may actually be thinking about joining the military in real life, or you may just be wondering what branch of the military you'd fit in with best.

There are a lot of choices. 

Of course, there is the Army, which is probably the most varied of all the branches of the military. Then, there is the Navy if you're the type of person that likes to travel and doesn't mind the ocean. The Marines are the ultimate fighting force; do you think you're hardcore enough for them? Perhaps you could even handle being a Green Beret! Instead of those three, you might like the Air Force. People are drawn to this branch because it involves flying and technology.  Don't forget the Coast Guard; While they aren't as talked about as the other branches, they protect our shores and also help people that are in trouble out at sea. 

Do you want to wait until you get into basic training before you figure out which branch you belong in, or do you want to take our quiz and be ready with that answer? Why don't you find out!
