Know Before You Go!
Every year, more and more Americans are turning to the military as a career choice. Although serving in the military can be a rich and fulfilling experience both personally and professionally, military life isn’t for everyone.
Unfortunately, some people leave their understanding of opportunities in the military up to the recruiter. To avoid regrets, it’s best to do your research before stepping into a recruiter’s office.
What You Need to Know Before Signing Up in the Military
You need to consider a few things before your first meeting with the recruiter. To get you started, Veteran Car Donations has pulled together a list of the things you need to know before you decide to join the military.
- Know what you want to do.
The six branches of the United States military include the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Space Force. Each branch of service has its own website that features the skill training and job opportunities it offers to its recruits. The websites also have forums where you can ask questions and get the answers you need even before you visit the recruiter. Unless you check these out, you may have a problem figuring out which branch is right for you and what to expect.
- Get into shape.
Basic training or boot camp turns recruits into service members who are physically, mentally, and emotionally prepared for all elements of the service. It’s important to note that the minimum requirements for all types of military service training can be tough for most recruits. For this reason, you’d need to get into shape weeks before enlisting.
- Plan your recruiter visit.
Before making an appointment to meet the recruiter face to face, be sure to bring the required documents. These include your IDs, birth certificate, Social Security card, high school and college transcripts, and your medical records. If you’ve had any major illnesses, broken bones, and previous surgeries, you may get a waiver.
