When he calls just have him say, "I am looking into joining the military and trying to get information about each branch.  Can we make an appointment to talk about my options with (insert branch)?"

I think the best way to get any questions answered is to go in person and talk with them. If he has a specific job he would like to do he could always talk about that to see if he;s even qualified for it...

Well, I don't know about those branches as we're Air Force and dh is an AF recruiter but I know he qualifies guys and gals before he even makes an appointment.  He has a ton of questions for them like--Age, height, weight, dependants, education, drugs, medical background, law violations...etc.  If he passes those basic questions then my dh usually has them come in to talk.  He has appointments lined up all day and doesn't really have time to answer a hundred questions over the phone.  He rarely answers his own phone because he has so many applicants in his office.  He has a rapper answering phones and making appointments.  So, I don't know how busy your local recruiters office is, but your df may not even get to talk to the recruiter tomorrow.

Whatever happens...good luck!

My husband was a Marine recruiter.  We just got off that duty. So he may want to ask specifics, but specifics have to wait until he goes in.  Any recruiter does not have the time to sit on the phone an answer questions all day.  They have phone calls to make, schools to visit, appointments, along with dealing with the day to day of the people they've already recruited.   The best option is to call and set up an appointment.

I recommend going and talking to each recruiter in person.   He can take a practice ASVAB in the office which will give him an idea what MOS's (jobs) he qualifies for.

Did you forget Air Force? Hubby has been AF for going on 12 years and loves it.
