Military Careers Assignment


DIRECTIONS: Answer all questions in complete sentences. Change your responses to
another color or bold.
Part I: Before Research
1. Have you considered the military as an option after graduation?
I have not considered the military after graduation.
2. If yes, what branch are you thinking about?
If no, why have you not considered the military?
I have not considered the military because I have been told that in the military the training is
harsh and aggressive and the military can deploy you to other parts of the country far away
from home such as Germany or Iraq.
3. From what sources have you built your opinion on military careers? (Family, friends, TV shows,
news, etc.)
Our family friend is in the army and has gone to war. He told us it was traumatizing and that
he has lost many of his friends in battle. Also my brother in law is in the Air-force but he is the
guard of a base. He told me when he was in Texas training his officers would yell at you and
you had to wake up around 4 in the morning to change in less than 5 minutes and start
training.

Part III Response


4. Which of the 3 military jobs would you like best? Why?
I prefer the Radiology Specialist out of the three military jobs because it is the career path I
want to follow in the future. Also I like helping people and this career is the one Im interested
in.
5. Did you know that this job existed before? Or, are you surprised that it exists?
I knew that in the army you can become a nurse or doctor but I never knew this job in the
army existed. Also that this job can help you prepare a career in X-Ray technologists. You
dont even need to go to a 4 year college to become a Radiology specialist. In only a few
months you can become a radiology specialist.
6. Now that youve looked into this career, do you think it might be a good option for you? Weigh
the pros and cons of military service, government benefits, and being able to transition into a
civilian career with the other paths to the career (usually college).
I believe that this job is not a good option for me. Some pros of this job is that I will receive
government benefits such as medical benefits. Also I would receive money for my food supply.
Also I would have a job in the military faster than I would get a degree in college. To become a
radiologist it takes at least 4 years of medical school 2-4 years of college. The cons would be
that in order to have this job in the army I would have to attend 10 weeks of combat training.
I rather attend college and get a degree a radiology even though its a longer career path.
Also I dont want to be far away from home and I dont want to be deployed far away and
possibly witness dead bodies.
