According to a recent DOD survey, about 73 percent of American youth (18 to 25) are not qualified to join the military. Are You?
You've decided you want to join the military. If you are unsure of which service to join, you may want to visit recruiters from all of the services. Regardless of what you may have heard, recruiters do not get a monetary bonus for signing people up. The recruiter's job is to find enough qualified volunteers to fill projected vacancies for the fiscal year, for their particular branch of service. While a majority of military recruiters are hard-working, honest, and dedicated, there are some (and I emphasize some) recruiters who are tempted to bend the truth in order to sign up a recruit. I encourage you to educate yourself so that you can know the truth about joining the military; the benefits and disadvantages.
