Everyone dabbles with the idea of joining the Army at some point in their life. After all, Army soldiers are some of the bravest people on the Earth, protecting the citizens of their nation. The U.S. Army has a long history of ensuring the safety its citizens, dating all the way back to the nation’s founding. They courageously fought in both World War I and World War II, and they have never backed down from a fight that they deemed worthy of America’s attention. If you ask us, they’re basically like real-life superheroes.
Of course, being a soldier isn’t exactly a walk in the park. You need to engage in intense training and it can be quite dangerous—that’s why so few people actually join.
