How do I join the Army?
Thank you for your interest in joining the United States Army. I trust you will find it to be an exciting and rewarding career prospect. If you are interested in the current activities of the army, let me encourage you to check out the Army's website at http://www.army.mil. Our website at http://www.goarmy.com is an excellent place to find out about basic training, read the profiles of real soldiers, and even visit a chat room to talk with Army personnel.
I am interested in finding out about the missions and personnel in the Department of Defense. Where can I get that information?
The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country. The Department of Defense is a Cabinet-level organization. Reporting to DoD are the three military departments (Army, Navy and Air Force) and 14 defense agencies. The four armed services are subordinate to their military departments. The Marine Corps is a second armed service in the Department of the Navy. The military departments are responsible for recruiting, training and equipping their forces, but operational control of those forces is assigned to one of the unified combatant commands.
