Interview With Sergeant Banks From The United States Army

On Tuesday February the 11th I held an interview with my recruiter Sergeant Michael (Mike) Banks from the United States Army.
Q: What’s your name to start off with?
A: Sergeant Mike Banks of the US Army.
Q: What made you want to join the Army?
A: The fact that I could get free schooling and travel anywhere I want for much less then what I would originally pay for and who wouldn't want free schooling like damn really.
Q: What's your MOS in the Army and why did you choose it?
A: My MOS is Airborne Infantry and I didn't really choose it I wanted Infantry and they asked if anybody wanted to come and join the Airborne Infantry so I just raised my hand and there I was Joining the Airborne Infantry.
Q: When did you realize you wanted to join the Army?
A: I decided when I was a senior in high school so pretty much like you kind of had to decide.
Q: Have you always wanted to go into the Army?
A: Yes I had no other thoughts about any other branch of service.
Q: Have you ever seen combat and if so what was it like?
A: Yes, it was like being in the most stressful situation that you could ever be in just knowing that anything can happen and then knowing if something happens to the leader of the squad that you may have to step up and take charge.
Q: What was basic training like?
A: It's the same as what you will be doing except you won’t have to jump out of planes as training since it’s not in your job requirements but anyways it was pretty difficult and well worth it.


  1. Thats awesome! Glad you did your interview with your recruiter. Free schooling is a great reason to be interested in the army. NV

  2. I think it was very cool that you interviewed sergeant Banks. He is really cool i have sat down with him on my own time and talked to him about joining the army.
