4. Which of the 3 military jobs would you like best? Why?
I would like to be an AH-64 ATTACK HELICOPTER REPAIRER because less weeks of
Advanced Individual Training with on-the-job instruction.
5. Did you know that this job existed before? Or, are you surprised that it exists?
I knew the job already existed before.
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 am still
not interested in the military.
