My early high school age cousin has been expressing interest in joining the military (specifically the US Navy) over the past year and a half. It's not something I'm super excited about, but it seems likely she'll follow through. Does there exist a book that gives really good, honest information about how the different branches of the US military work, how to approach it if you want it to be your career, not just a short term thing, etc? The kind of information she wouldn't necessarily find in a recruiter's office. [more inside]

My brother is in Army Basic Training at Fort Leonard Wood. He is unable to receive any care packages at this time, only Military-related books. I believe it's not limited to non-fiction. What are some entertaining and educational books for someone in Basic Training? Fiction and non-fiction welcome. Thanks!
