About This Quiz

We know you're a patriot, one that would have no problem joining the military. We also know that you would excel at the job, being an inspiration both to your peers and your superiors. But when someone has as much skill as you do when it comes to being in the military, you're going to have some difficult choices to make. We're not just talking about how many years you sign up for. The biggest one of all is going to be whether you're going to be a soldier or a sailor.

Do you like to travel the world, or would you like to stay close to home? When it comes to combat, would you rather be up close and personal with your opponent or would you like to be giving and receiving hits long distance? 

Probably most importantly, are you drawn to the sea and love every minute that you spend on the ocean, or does the thought of being on a boat with a lot of people for long periods of time freak you right out? And we aren't even going to get started on submarines. Take this quiz, and we'll let you know whether you're a squid or a grunt.
