First do your research. Find out which branch of the military best suits you and your needs. Then once you have a vague idea what each branch of service entails, search out a recruiter. Talk to them and get some information from them. Think about what they have said and what you have researched. Discuss it with your family and see what they think before you make your decision. Once you decide on the branch of service go back to the recruiter for that branch. From there they will set you up with a test date to take the ASVAB. That test just gives the military a rough idea about what jobs you'd be good at possibly. For the Air Force, after you take it the recruiter will give you a list of jobs that you qualify for. From that list you will choose your top picks. Then the recruiter will get all the paperwork started get you enrolled in DEP (delayed enlistment program). You will then have a physical with a doctor where they will weigh you, measure you, check your eyesight, hearing, and other things of that nature. It seems like a long process but it really isn't. I enlisted in March 2012 and went to Basic Training for the Air Force in August 2012.
