Your motivation is commendable for not even being 16 yet. You can't enlist until you're 17, and there is a lot that can happen between now and then. Finish high school, stay out of trouble with the law, take your ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) Test when it is offered (and do your absolute BEST, it is how the services evaluate your job qualifications), and go talk to a recruiter sometime. You can join the Delayed Entry Program up to a year (I think) in advance and have your job slot reserved for you. I know the Army does this, at least. If one is not available the first time you go, then wait and go the following week, two weeks, or however long it takes for you to get a slot. Think about all the different kinds of jobs you would like to do, and go to the websites for the different services and browse through their job lists. And, if you have any more questions, feel free to browse these posts as it may have already been answered, or post again and someone will have an answer for you. I'm assuming Army, because you're in this forum. Go to the www.goarmy.com website for more info.

She is lucky she has a chance to join i want to join, but i can't cause i have athsma. I'm 16 years old and married, and my husband doesn't support me, nor my parents, on going to the army.

Do I still have a chance?
