What Military Branch Should You Join? | Boot Camp

Watch more Boot Camp: Learn about Basic Training videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/498622-What-Military-Branch-Should-You-Join-Boot-Camp Let's review some of the basics about each branch. First of all the marines, they are considered riflemen first. They have more marksmanship training than any other branch, and it has the most difficult basic training regimen. They have the incredible ability to convert dollar power into combat power, as they have no big budget like the Air Force, but they also have lots of military pride. Let's talk about the army, which has the second most intense basic training regimen. They have about three weeks of marksmanship, and recruits can pick from hundreds of different MOS's, which stands for military occupational specialty, and those MOS's translate well into civilian jobs. The navy: deep rooted with tradition, and if you like to travel this is the branch for you. Family men might want to consider the time they are going to spend away from their family though, given the fact that all of the time you are going to spend on ships. Also, if you are claustrophobic, it might not be a good idea to join the Navy, as you are going to be spending a lot of time in tight quarters. If you like large vessels and ships, the Navy is definitely the way to go. They have an awesome inventory of powerful ships. Let's talk about the Air Force. An impressive compilation of machinery and technology. If you are good with computers and technology this is definitely the branch that you should join. It also has the best housing of all the branches too. It's also the most difficult to get into as far as education requirements. The Coast Guard, Uncle Sam's little canoe club. If you like search and rescue missions, if you have an interest in maritime law, if you like environmental protection this is gonna be a good branch for you. You are going to need a high school diploma, and you are going to need to love to swim in order to join the coast guard. And that's it. Think long and hard about your decision because it is difficult to change once you have committed to a certain branch.

I want to serve, but I'm not sure which to join. I learn quickly, and want to travel, but I don't want something extremely intensive physically. I'm thinking Navy?

The coast guard is acctually really good and help out alot don't know why people always compare them to the other branches because that's not what they are for they don't fight they only save, they are basically fire fighters, And EMTs.

Speaking as a fellow army person this is straight BS Sargent. I scored over a 110 on my GT and they still have me infantry. If you want to join the military talk to an army E4 they won’t tell you any BS.

Tv Robotic (10 months ago)
Dude if you have 6years dont be nervous lol. Train physically but also study math, science, paragraph comprehension, and arithmetic reasoning as these are what you need to ace on the asvab for a good job and those 4 go towards your armed qualification test (afqt)

I'm stuck between marines and navy any tips?
Tv Robotic (10 months ago)
Navy has a better retirement plan, you will gain rank 100 times faster in the navy resulting in more pay. If you put the time into the marines and gain rank its very rewarding.
first last (11 months ago)
join the chair force
T C (1 year ago)
Tyler Bueno Na but If your more Into sea deployment then combat deployments, go navy. There's a lot of pros and cons of each branch, I can't tell you which to join that's up to you to decide. Whichever fits your character better then you should go with that branch
T C (1 year ago)
Tyler Bueno I mean honestly as a marine, go Marines lol.

what if I want to insert just the tip?
Original Faggledouche (1 year ago)
Demon a lot of adventure? Army Special Forces. those guys get deployed to a lot of different places because it's their job. Combat? Army Rangers, or Marine Infantry. I would say go Army Rangers, but marine infantry alright.
Spyder Industries (1 year ago)
Go army light infantry if you want to jump out of airplanes, go marines if you want to insert via boat.
Joeballs (1 year ago)
Navy or Marines?
T C (1 year ago)
Joeballs Honestly if you enjoy that action and sea go coast guard just see what they offer. It's possible for Marines to get deployed with Navy on a Navy ship, but I mean it's slim to none. Weigh positives and negatives and whichever you find better go with that.
Joeballs (1 year ago)
+Kaleb Long Right now i am slightly leaning towards the Marine Corps because i feel like i can offer more to the company when working on the front lines but i still really want to experience the living on the sea that comes with the Navy but i can also do that in the Corps but boot camp is a million times easier in the navy so im still stuck but if i had to pick one to ship out to right now then the Marine Corps would have me by a hair

I'm only 15 right now but I'm thinking of joining a combat position. I was wondering if you have to be very tall and strong to join or if they will make you strong in boot camp?
Original Faggledouche (1 year ago)
Army Rangers, Marines Infantry are the best combat positions. of course army SF is just as good as Army Rangers, but Rangers are SOLELY for combat, and not every SF mission will be combative. Make sure you are in shape before boot camp. makes it a whole lot easier
T C (1 year ago)
Polemos na man, I know tons of short Marines who did better then taller more fit Marines at bootcamp. Bootcamp is more cardio then weightlifting so if your good on running then you should be fine.

omar bernal (1 year ago)
COAST GUARD got my attention but does not guarantee being in the BM's as that's what I liked , aka Maritime specialist. Also noticed is the only branch besides the airforce that dosent have infantryman. And at my age of 32 almost 33 next two months chances slim down. Only M.O.S for me is electrician, mechanic, or cook. Looks like i should have look into this a couple years back.
Hillbilly True 'Murican (6 months ago)
The Navy doesn't have Infantry either.

Oscar Morales (1 year ago)
quantum goat It's 11B not B11. Marine and Army infantry are virtually the same. And NO you cannot compare a special ops Rangers with a basic Marine. Army Rangers vs Marine Recon is a fair comparison. Marines do have the worst living conditions of all the branches.

Army if you want a challenge and some type of civilian job like the guy said. Airforce has an easy boot camp, but you need to be academically smart.

ROTENDESTROYER 3000 (1 year ago)
