Preview of the U.S. Army’s Starting Strong Series


Young Americans get a crash course in Army life before they make one of the biggest decisions they’ll ever make in the U.S. Army’s new “Starting Strong” video series.

It’s the difficult decision faced by generations of Americans stretching all the way back to the nation’s founding — join the U.S. Army or remain a civilian. Now, the Army’s turned the life-altering turning point in a young man or woman’s life into a reality show.

Take a look at this preview of the series “Starting Strong” as the thrill of firing an M240H helicopter-mounted machine gun gives a soccer-playing college student another reason to consider enlisting.

You can watch the show via the U.S. Army’s YouTube account.
