Short Description

There is a wide range of exciting and satisfying military careers available without a college diploma. The military offers thousands of specialized jobs, and the majority of those have direct civilian counterparts. In the military, you earn a steady paycheck from the moment you sign up. If you join at age 18, you can serve a full 20 years and retire at age 38! What's more, the U.S. armed forces offer excellent educational benefits. After your tour of enlistment is over, a program called the Montgomery GI Bill provides financial support for you to continue your education. As a member of the U.S. armed forces, you are part of an organization that is important in the world. You're helping to defend the national security of the United States. Each title in this series contains color photos throughout and the essential information needed to find not just a job but a career that draws on the reader's particular skills and interests. Each chapter profiles a different job in the field and helps the reader to determine whether it is the right job for him or her. Web sites listed in each chapter provide further information. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions-building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Video features throughout have QR codes linked to online videos that provide supplemental interviews, documentaries, and historical clips. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis.
