I’m about to be 17 this come August, I’ve ben thinking on it and I’m planning on joining but I have no idea what to enlist for? Like I don’t know how to enlist as a m1a1 tank crewman? If y’all could help me with this decision I’d sure appreciate it. And by the way I’m a senior in high school this year. Any help?

Hey Dalton, first consider talking with your High School counselor. If military is an option, then go to each of the military websites (army.mil, navy.com, nationalguard.com, etc.) and review the jobs. Each branch has a primary mission so take that into consideration. Next, following your research, consider what ‘gifts’ that you can provide, i.e. mechanical minded, strong swimmer, etc. then simply aligned such gift(s) with the military jobs available. Keep in mind that you will be taking an ASVAB test to help identify such gifts. You’re on the right path by researching. Study all the military branch websites and by googling military jobs, (army jobs, navy jobs, etc.). Lastly, spend time with more than recruiter if possible. Sometimes you learn by cross referencing what each branch recruiter offers about the other. Hope this helps. LF
