My name is Brian and I established RateTheMilitary to help the tens of thousands of aspiring military recruits make smarter career decisions. Having gone through the military recruitment process nearly twelve years ago, I still cringe when I think back to the experience, and that poor experience is what inspired me to launch RateTheMilitary.

So what is it?

RateTheMilitary is the first online military community to connect the current generation of service members with the next generation of service members. We believe that America’s service members have a wealth of knowledge and experience that should be harnessed and shared with our future military leaders. The centralized platform that you’ll find here enables just that.

Active military can post reviews of their career across the nearly 900 military professions. Civilians can then access these unique testimonies to find honest and impartial information on any given military profession. By arming aspiring recruits with the necessary tools and information to identify compatible careers, they can make more informed career decisions before they meet with a recruiter.

Isn’t that what military recruiters are for?

Military recruiters are extremely hard working and do their best with the limited amount of resources at their disposal. Still, their ability to provide detailed information on a given career is pretty limited. What’s it like to be a Field Artillery Cannoneer in the Marines? What are my chances of being deployed? Does this position offer opportunities for advancement? More often than not, these types of questions are left unanswered, leaving potential recruits (like myself) frustrated and apprehensive.

FREE $5 Starbucks for Active Military

We’re excited to serve as the first online military community, but cannot do it without the support of service men and women. So the first 100 active military members to post reviews of their profession will earn a $5 Starbucks Gift Card.

We’ve also teamed up with the Wounded Warriors Project to donate $1 every time RateTheMilitary is shared online. So help support our wounded warriors by sharing rateTheMilitary with friends and family using the link below.
