The Military is made up of six branches, ArmyMarinesNavyAir ForceSpace Force, and Coast Guard, each with its own active-duty and part-time components. Each varies in service commitment, location, and how its members contribute to the overall mission of protecting our country, though all components are on the same rank-based pay scale. The Army National Guard and the Air National Guard are reserve components of their services and operate in part under state authority.

  • What is an enlisted soldier? They are the “engine” of military defense.
  • What is an officer? They are the leaders who develop, execute, and oversee military defense operations.

If you wish to speak with a military recruiter, please contact a College and Career Center Counselor.
