Anchors aweigh!

So I think this is pretty hilarious. Apparently I’m best off as a squid.

The other night my husband and I were talking about the ASVAB, which I never took, and he told me that a person’s ASVAB score determines which military jobs they’re qualified to do. Score on the low end and you’d better like grunt work. On the higher end, be ready to put your brain to good use.

Intrigued, I Googled “sample ASVAB” and found a test I could take on the website. It looks like a recruiting tool and, in order to take it, I first had to fill out a bunch of info about myself and agree to being contacted by a recruiter. I marked that I was most interested in joining the Army ( afterall I already live at Fort Bragg and already know the acronyms) and then I joked my husband that if they offered me a good enough deal, I was going to join as an officer just so I could officially boss him around.

Before you ask, I couldn’t make heads or tails of the results, so I still don’t know which MOS I’m best suited for. But, according to this reply I got last night from, it looks like I’d be better off the Navy. Whatever that means…

  1. Wonder what the results would be if I took the test?! Either way, I think my hubby and me will get a kick out of discussing the results.

    P.S. I just discovered your blog and am enjoying catching up! Love it!
