PREPARING FOR YOUR FUTURE

There are seventeen different branches, with each being its own entity and having its specific role within the U.S. Army. “Branching” is an exciting step for cadets because it’s a time when each is selected for the type of work they’ll be doing as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army.
