The recruiting season is in full swing this time of year, so if you want to enlist, you've got to separate yourself from the pack! Know what job you want (http://army.com/army-jobs), know if you have any medical issues (http://army.com/info/usa/physical) or legal issues (http://army.com/info/usa/disqualifiers). Knowing this can save your recruiter lots of time and aggravation, and make him want to work with you!
