NATIONAL FFA ORGANIZATION
A FOCUS ON AGRICULTURAL, SCIENCE AND TECHNICAL CAREERS
The U.S. Army will be at the 2010 FFA National Convention in Indianapolis, Ind., October 20-22 demonstrating career and educational opportunities available inside the Army.
The U.S. Army offers much more than just a job, for example money for college, leadership opportunities, and training with advanced technologies within more than 150 careers.
If you can't attend FFA, but still want to explore the diverse opportunities available to you through the U.S. Army, goarmy.com is the right place to start your search. Continue to check us out or talk to your local recruiter about scholarships and careers available in the Army.
If you are attending FFA, you can take advantage of the opportunity to visit the Army’s Strength in Action Zone and speak with an Army representative about the many educational, leadership and technological opportunities available in the U.S Army. But don’t just take their word for it, stroll around the DRASH—a mobile surgical unit—and talk to experts, test out the Army Marksmanship trainer and talk to marksmen from the Army Olympic shooting team, and visit the dog handler demonstrations put on by the Military Police three times a day. You can also visit the Army NASCAR show car, or chill out with a round of Guitar Hero. Any of these Soldiers will be happy to answer questions and tell you how the Army made them Army strong.
