Personally, I'd probably tell my parents ahead of time. If you're resolute in your decision then someone trying to change your mind wont affect your decision. It sometimes helps to have the benefit of anothers perspective in large decisions like this- and your parents may feel like they've had a hand in your decision if you talk through it with them. They may give you some good things to consider before you pull the trigger (as it were.)

The military is, in my opinion, a very good way to shift many things in your life into focus; as a springboard to a productive life and an all around better 'you' it is second to none. By the time you've finished your enlistment you'll likely have a much better idea about what you want out of life and how to go about getting it. There's also the added benefit of being in really good shape physically when you graduate basic
