Many students have chosen to take the ASVAB, a test that determines what jobs you’d be best at in the military. Some of the students taking it have given their motivations and reasons for taking it. Some take the ASVAB because they know they want to protect and serve their country. “I’m taking the ASVAB because I want to join the military to protect and serve,” says Junior James Willson.

“I want to take the ASVAB because I want to join the military to protect my country and be proud of something.” Junior D’Andre Scovola says. “I want to enlist and better our country,” says Shaille Hansen. “I want to join the Marines and serve my country,” Junior Terrell Duncan says. “ I want to take the ASVAB to join the Navy. I want to join the Navy for the GI bill,” Junior Nathan Claunch comments. The ASVAB determines jobs you’d be good at in the military so some take it to see what they’d be good at. “I want to see how I can do and what jobs in the military I can do,” Senior David Jones comments. “I hope to get a good score, I want to be a pararescue jumper to save lives,” Senior Mathew Washburn says

“I want to see a general understanding of what I know and to see what I can accomplish in the military. My dad was in the military and it seems like fun,” Junior John Cover says “I thought it’d be a good opportunity to see different jobs in the military. My dad and grandpa were in it and I’m interested in it,” Junior Josh Chapa states. As stated by all of these students, they wish to protect and serve their country. To those who would like to do the same but didn’t make it this year, next year is always an option for Sophomores and Juniors.
