Gr 6 Up Exploring the numerous career opportunities available to individuals serving in the six branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, this text-heavy series moves beyond the standard look at what each branch does, focusing instead on nine specific jobs, from the entry-level to more advanced positions. Job descriptions address education, required skills and personality, working conditions, salary, and advancement opportunities. The text also looks ahead to the occupation outlook and employment prospects in the civilian world. The minimalist black-and-white design puts the emphasis on the information, and while a few color photos sporadically break up the blocks of text, their inclusion seems incidental and adds very little to the overall package. VERDICT These well-written overviews, although short on visuals, are excellent resources for the numerous career possibilities the military has to offer.
