About This Quiz

You might be just curious about where you would fit in the military, or you could be seriously considering enlisting. No matter where you stand, we hope you are at full attention! Use all of the skills you think might be useful to the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Marines or Air Force, and we'll let you know which branch is right for you. 

Every branch of the military has a different set of requirements and standards. Before we put the quiz together for you, we familiarized ourselves with the expectations that each one has. From the physical fitness level required by the Marines to the intelligence scores demanded by the Air Force, each of our questions will help place you with the right branch. 

Few people join the military to only complete one tour of duty, but it happens all the time. We think that entering the wrong branch is responsible for service members leaving before retirement. By taking this quiz, you are setting yourself up for a career spent serving your country! 

Will you be best suited for the branch you've always thought about joining, or will you need to rethink your plans? March through this quiz, and well tell you! Are you ready to "Fly, fight, win?"
