Common United States Armed Forces Recruiting Terms

Recruiters for the United States Armed Forces work with individuals considering enlisting in the military. A recruiter will assist a potential recruit in obtaining a contract with a branch of the armed forces. Below are six terms to be familiar with if you are considering military service.

  • Army – The oldest and largest branch of the military. The Army is the branch of the United States Armed Forces that is responsible for land-based operations. The Army National Guard and Army Reserve are both parts of the U.S. Army.

  • Navy – A branch of the United States Military responsible for naval operations. The U.S. Navy is the largest navy in existence, with bases and ships around the world.

  • Coast Guard – A branch of the U.S. Military responsible for defense of America’s coastal areas. The length of the United States coastline is over 12,000 miles.

  • Air Force – The branch of military service responsible for aerial warfare. The air force was once the Army Air Corps but was made into an independent branch after the successful use of planes in World War II.

  • Marine Corps – A branch of the U.S. Military that works closely with the Navy as an expeditionary force. The Marine Corps is frequently used to implement American foreign policy because its units are highly mobile and able to respond quickly.

  • ASVAB – The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is a test taken by potential military recruits to determine their qualifications for the armed services. A potential recruit’s score on the ASVAB determines what branches of the armed service they may enlist in.

    For most of its history, the United States government has employed a volunteer military. In order to staff the Armed Forces with talented men and women who are willing to serve, large scale recruitment is necessary. While recruitment is especially important during times of war, trained military personnel and civilians work constantly to ensure that their rolls are well staffed with new members. Most of these efforts are now spearheaded on a Federal level, but National Guard and Army Reserve troops may still be enlisted through state efforts. Each arm of the Armed Forces is generally responsible for their own campaigns, with the campaigns of the Army and the Navy being perhaps the best known of any of the branches. These campaigns tend to focus not simply on the sense of national duty and honor that often compels soldiers to join, but also on the many career advancement opportunities that are now available through service. There are over 1,400 locations around the United States where those who are interested in learning more about the opportunities available to those who work in service of US defense can go to get this information. The more than 9,500 professionals who staff these stations can provide information on the qualifications that are required to sign up for the Army, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard. While some of these staffers are civilians, most are currently active, ranking officers who can talk in more depth about the life of a service man or woman. Anyone is welcome to schedule a no obligation visit to these facilities to talk about anything from the specifics of becoming a Marine to the educational funds available to veterans.
