Poll Vault: Which branch of the military would you join?

By Michelle Holdway

In honor of Veterans Day today, how about an armed forces poll?

There are more than 1.4 million American servicemen and women on active duty, according to the Department of Defense.

But imagine the government has just made military service compulsory for adults, regardless of your fitness level.

Before you head off to boot camp, you get to choose which of the five branches to join. Will it be semper fi or anchors aweigh? Or will you go off into the wild blue yonder?

For those about to answer, I salute you.
