About This Quiz

Since the time of Alexander the Great, scientists have used Tex-Mex fast food choices to determine which branch of the military one belongs in. Admiral Lord Nelson, who defeated Napoleon Bonaparte at the Battle of Trafalgar, was placed in the British Navy because of the favor he showed to deep-fried chalupas. 

Genghis Khan, who conquered most of Asia, and parts of Europe and the Middle East, became a cavalry soldier because of his deep and abiding love of refried beans and Spanish rice. Even General George Washington, leader of the Continental Army, became a soldier because of his weakness for Strawberry Skittles Freezes.

We ask you to put yourself in the shoes of all the great soldiers who came before you. Do you belong in the high flying air force, whose staff are required to be intelligent, disciplined, and highly trained? If so, you'd better like tacos. Do you dream of seeing the world in the United States Navy? You had better have a strong stomach, both for the seasickness and for the massive burritos, the consumption of which is required by the Department of Defense. Even the Coast Guard and the United States Army will test you for your ability to keep down buckets of sour cream and guacamole.

Put your order together and find out which branch of the service you belong to!
