As you may know, every man in Switzerland has to do his military service. I will explain briefly how our army works. As a Swiss citizen, the year you turn 16, you are invited for an information day. During this day, you learn about the different functions you can perform in the army. At the end of the day, you have to decide when you want to do your military service. Following this information day, you receive another invitation for the recruitment procedure, two days where you are tested on different levels. Based on the results obtained during these two days, the Colonel of the Recruitment Center assigns you a function.
