There are many individuals in the U.S. who decide they want to take an active role in making a difference by joining our nation?s military. There are 12 branches within the military, so it is important for individuals to fully understand the various branches before they select where they would like to serve.

It is also important to note that there are both active duty and part-time duty service members. Active duty individuals are also referred to as full-time members, and they can work either in the U.S. or overseas. Part-time members have other careers as well, but they train one weekend each month with their Reserve or National Guard unit.

The Army is focused on protecting the security of the U.S. and its resources, and the Marine Corps is typically the first branch on the ground when we are involved in combat situations. The Navy is dedicated to protecting our rights to trade and travel on oceans throughout the world, while the Air Force concentrates on using air power to defend the U.S. both abroad and in our homeland. Lastly, the Coast Guard safeguards our waterways and positions with the Navy during times of war.

Joining the U.S. military is both a respectable and challenging life decision, and it is imperative that individuals know exactly what they should expect with this career path. That is why we have interviewed people who work in the military to give you a insider?s perspective on what it is really like.
