Transcript of Consider the Military?

Consider the Military?
If I enlist, how long will I have to be in the military?
Generally the minimum is two years, but the amount of benefits you receive directly relates to your commitment.
Do I get to have input concerning where I will be stationed?
No you don't have any input, at the beginning your recruiter will place you where they are in need of position filled.

Where will I most likely be stationed?
Where you're stationed depends on what Military Occupation Specialty (MOS) you choose and the availability of slots.
What will be my base pay?
Your base pay will depend on your MOS and rank.
What benefits are offered?
The Congressional Budget Office recently estimated that the average active duty service member receives an Army benefits and pay compensation package worth $99,000. Noncash compensation represents almost 60 percent of this package. Noncash compensation includes health care, retirement pay, child care and free or subsidized food, housing and education. Coupled with regular cash compensation, this adds up to attractive military compensation for Soldiers.
What jobs in the military will my ASVAB scores qualify me for?

ASVAB scores will qualify you for specialty jobs in the military, known as MOS such as a medic, a fire support specialist, cavalry scout, etc.
what are the chances of getting trained in the job i want?
The army guarantees training in the job you want amongst enlisting in the military.
Are there any others tests that I must pass to get the job that I want?
No their are no other tests you have to take to get the job that you want in the military.
Will I be eligible for the GI Bill?
To use MGIB (Montgomery GI Bill) as an active duty member or after you're separated from active duty, you must obtain a high school diploma or equivalency certificate before you apply for benefits. Completing 12 hours toward a college degree before you apply for benefits also meets this requirement

To use MGIB after you're separated from active duty, your discharge must be fully honorable. Discharges "under honorable conditions" and "general" discharges don't establish eligibility for MGIB.
