Infantry, Cavalry, Field Artillery, Ordnance Dept., Medical Depi (including
.Veterinary Corps), Coast Artillery Corps, Signal' Corps, ank Corps,
Air Service (including Balloon Corps), Motor Transport Corps,
Quartermaster Corps, Corps of Engineers, and Construction Division.
Find out what each of these branches offers you in pay and experience, then
suit your-own taste. Men of skilled trades are wanted. Men who have not
yet learned trades are also wanted, and selected men will be given thorough
instruction in trades of their own choosing. Earn while you learn.

Fits You for Success
Suppose you are a- young man looking about you for a trade as a stepping
stone tto success in life. To learn such a trade you must either work for very
low wages during your apprenticeship, or else go to a trade school ; and in
both these cases you have to find yourself while learning. Uncle Sam gives
you your living, gives you the opportunity to learn a trade and pays you
real money at the same time. And when you complete your enlistment and
obtain your discharge, you find yourself a trained man if you have made use of
your opportunity, and your, services will be in demand wherever skilled merr
are employed. Among these skilled trades are the following:
MOTOR MECHANICS (Air or Ground)

Liberty and Recreation

The soldier off duty writes letters, smokes, plays baseball, pool, football or
most any other game he likes; goes to the movies, or theatres; calls on his
girl, if he has one in fact, does about as he likes. Being in uniform, his self
respect as well as the rules of the Service demands that he conduct himself as
a soldier and a gentleman. He has no difficulty in obtaining permission to
leave the camp or post at proper times, and he may obtain leave when his turn
comes. He njeets agreeable people including lots of nice girls, at Hostess -Houses,
etc. He goes to dances, if he wants to. In fact, he usually has a
better time than a civilian..
