A handbook of reference for the youth who knows that he has to serve in the armed forces and wants to get- and give- the most there is to be found. One has a sense of repeat performance; surely there was just such a book in the late war? In consultation with officers in Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air, the author has brought together the salient facts every young man needs to know. Whether to enlist or wait for induction; the pros and cons of each. What the attitude should be -- what military life will be like. The various tests, their purpose and importance. Interviews and their intent. Opportunities for promotion, for commissions, for being in the right niche, for educational advancement and its bearing on the post-service future. Practical and commonsense.
