Military Career



Is the military your choice for a career?  It's not a bad choice and if you ask me I believe we Americans should do what Italians do and require everyone who graduates serve their country for a minimum of two years.  Then they have the choice to either stay with the military and work towards and nice retirement or go the public sector and find a job with a company.

If the military is your choice, you should probably practice the ASVAB testing which practice testing is available on this website, ASVAB Practice Test Online but why do you need to practice?  Most people think they can join any branch if they want which isn't true.  Everyone wanting to join the Military must take a written test called ASVAB which stands for Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. After taking the test you'll have to wait a few weeks for the results which is given to you as a number and that number tells you what branch of service you qualify for.


The minimum AFQT scores for entry into each branch, with a high school diploma, are as follows:

  • Army & National Guard – 31
  • Marine Corps – 32
  • Navy – 35
  • Air Force – 36
  • Coast Guard – 40

So now you see what is the minimum score and now you don't like what you got you may have the question.... 

Can I Take the ASVAB Test More Than Once?

The Answer is Yes.

  • 1st Retake of the ASVAB you must wait one full calendar month to retake the ASVAB test
  • 2nd Retake of the ASVAB you must wait an additional calendar month to retest
  • 3rd Retake of the ASVAB you have to wait six calendar months to retake the ASVAB.
  • 4th Retake of the ASVAB you have to wait six calendar months to retake the ASVAB.
  • Any additional times are just like the 3rd and 4th where you have to wait six calendar months to retake the ASVAB.

Where Can I Take the ASVAB Test? How Do I Schedule It?

You can contact the Armed Forces Recruiting Officer in your area and you can schedule an appointment with a local recruiter from the branch of the military you wish to join.

Getting Ready For Your Test Date

Now is also a good time to learn more about the specific sub-sections of the ASVAB test. You may be a pro at solving math problems, but if reading comprehension is not your forte it can bring down your overall ASVAB score, known specifically as your AFQT score.

Once you have decided on a test date, it is important to register as early as possible. This will prevent any avoidable issues with test administrators needing enough time to make sure you are eligible to take the test.

    • We are home now. They decided to go with option #1 and have Kate keep weight off her right leg with the help of a walker (crutches temporarily).  We have to call an orthopedic office tomorrow. kate asked for Zofran while she was in the hospital and ever since she got it introduced to her body via IV, she’s felt sick to her stomach. I made her grilled cheese but she just can’t bring herself to eat.  She isn’t eaten anything all day and she’s hungry but anything she can think of for food
    • Praying for the best option for Kate.  We all know how stubborn she can be (family trait??)but we are also here to help with her recovery.  Sending my Babycakes some positive vibes for a positive outcome.    
    • Poor Kate got sick from the medicine they injected in her IV for the MRI but she’s back in the Exam room waiting for results from the Orthopedic doctor after they review the MRI results which will tell us n which direction (options) are available.
    • Now she’s getting MRI. First ortho doc said we have three potential treatments since she’s been walking around “okay”, they may just tell her to continue walking around but keep weight off the leg and use a walker to get around and help keep the weight off while the body heals the fracture. they could do surgery and put metal in to hold it all together Worse case scenario is they replace the entire hip which is not preferred or ideal. if they go with optio
    • We just got moved into Exam Room 22. Kate feels a bit better with her shoes off and slipper socks on and laying down... but now we listen to the sounds of a hospital. Ding ding ding goes the machine
