Military Careers from Occupational Outlook Handbook

Military Careers from Occupational Outlook Handbook – http://www.bls.gov/ooh/military/military-careers.htm

Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:

  • What are the differences in duties between enlisted and officers working in public affairs?
  • What are the big picture differences between officers and enlisted?
  • What is the monthly pay of an E-6 with five years of service?


Provides an overview of the types of work done in the armed forces (more than fighting, you know) and has service breakdowns by rank and type of work. Might inspire you to have military characters in unusual roles.
