U.S. Army trolling for troops in Yap

U.S. Army recruiters will be in Yap on Monday, April 30th and Tuesday, May 1st to provide testing for anyone interested in exploring enlistment in the U.S. Army. Sergeant First Class Garett Frigon and Sergeant Lannie Garayol have extended an invitation to anyone who is in high school, or no more than 35 years of age, to participate in the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, the most widely used multiple-aptitude test battery in the world.

The ASVAB measures strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success. The ASVAB also provides career information for various civilian and military occupations and is an indicator for success in future endeavors whether college, vocational school, or a military career.

The testing will take place at the YAP CAP Conference Room in Colonia. Participants are requested to arrive at 12 noon sharp on either April 30th or May 1st and bring a photo ID and U.S. Social Security card if they have one. The test will begin at 1:00pm but participants will need to fill out a form prior to taking the test. Seating is limited to 30 for each session and is first come, first served.

It is highly recommended that interested individuals prepare in advance by studying and taking the ASVAB practice tests to identify the areas they may need to work on. For more information, practice tests and study guides, go to

Each branch of the service – Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard – has different standards for doing well on this test. It is recommended that applicants take the test at the peak of their knowledge in high school math, literature, verbal, mechanical and general science skills as they are all subjects on the test.
