• Before serving in the Military, there are a few things a young adult can do to prepare. The ASVAB Career Exploration Program can help young adults discover suitable jobs. Likewise, they must meet certain requirements to serve, including age, and educational and physical prerequisites. Once committed to Service, training begins in the form of Boot Camp (officially called Initial Entry Training). College students interested in entering the Service as officers may elect to enroll in their school's Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) program or other service-oriented commissioning programs. Military Colleges and Academies provide another route to a college degree and officer status.
