Thinking of joining the military?
According to myfuture.com, "Intangible qualities like discipline and determination are perhaps the most rewarding of all military benefits. Still, it’s nice to know that service in the Military comes with more tangible benefits than you might expect, including education, medical/dental care, 30 days of paid vacation, low-cost travel and more."

According to Today's Military, "There are hundreds of ways to make a living in the Military, and many of these careers provide the training and experience needed for a rewarding second career in the private sector. There is no guarantee service members will receive the jobs they want, as the Services determine where each individual’s skills are needed most."

Take the ASVAB.
The ASVAB is a preliminary exam for entrance into any branch of the U.S. Military. Taking the ASVAB does not require you to commit to the military, but the results help the student to determine what branches he or she might be suited for as well as which careers match his or her skills and interests.
