Steps to Enlisting
Talk to a recruiter. You may meet a recruiter at your school or connect through the branch website. Either way, your recruiter can provide important information to help you make a decision and fill you in on next steps.
Take the ASVAB. The Armed Services Vocation Aptitude Battery is a test that will determine your eligibility for specific branches and jobs within that branch.
Be boot camp ready. No matter which branch you join, you’ll be expected to be physically fit. Start getting in shape now before you hit boot camp. You can expect to be pushed to your physical and mental limit but rewarded by lifetime bonds with your fellow recruits and a well-deserved feeling of accomplishment at graduation.
