Hi, I'm Private First Class Jacob Hoyle from small town (Cajuo), North Carolina I'm here at Fort Benning, Georgia for basic training and Brandon from Arizona ask a question; "When you joined what were the steps you had to take?"

Basically, talk to a recruiter they will let you know everything you need to know. If you haven't done it in high school, you have to take the ASVAB Test. Basically all it is, is a placement test.

And then they give you a physical and hopefully if your recruiter is great enough they do it within 72-hours.

Then after your physical, hopefully you can sign you contract and they give you a ship day of when you go to basic. Hope that answers your question.
