Summary

Summary

Uncle Sam Wants You-more than ever. Since the tragic events of 9/11, all branches of the U.S. Military have seen a rise in enlistments. This is due to several factors: 1) A renewed sense of patriotism, and 2) a cooling off the economy and subsequent recession. Suddenly, job opportunities for recent high school and college grads are drying up quickly. That's why a career in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or even the Coast Guard, may be an excellent option. Author Bill Harris, working closely with recruiters from branch of the military, will detail the intricacies of getting the most out of a military career and discuss which branch of the military might be best for you. He'll explore age limits, guaranteed training, bonuses and benefits, and even the rigors of basic training. He'll also cover the many perks offered by a career in the military, and how best to obtain them.
