About This Quiz

Some might think that the branches of the military are all the same, but nothing could be farther from the truth. If you ever have thought about joining the military, what branch you choose to serve in is a really important decision and one not to be taken lightly. And even if you haven't thought of joining up, finding out which branch of the military is most suited to you can help you a lot later in life. 

So which would be right for you? The Air Force tends to be the place to join if you're into technology and might be a little more educated, but you better be able to handle pressure and like to fly. If you want to see the world, the Navy might be your best bet, as long as you can handle being around a lot of people in a really small space. 

If you're tough as nails and totally hardcore, you might want to join the Marines, but you better be really tough and not just fronting. Then we have the Army, which might be the place to go if you really aren't sure, as there are so many different opportunities there. 

No matter what you chose if you actually did serve, you should be proud. Take this quiz to find out what branch of the military would be best for you.
