Question: The recruiter has scheduled me to go to MEPS. What's going to happen there?
Answer: MEPS is the Military Entrance Processing Station. There are 65 MEPS Locations scattered regionally throughout the United States. An applicant usually makes two separate trips to MEPS. The first trip is for initial processing, which includes medical examination, security interview, ASVAB and other testing.

The second trip is for processing to ship out to Basic Training.

For an overview of the MEPS process, see the articles, The MEPS Experience, The Second MEPS Trip, and MEPS at a Glance.
