There are certain requirements that must be met in order to be able to enter the military. Some of these requirements apply to all those joining, some are specific to the branch of the military you are joining and some are dependent upon whether you desire to be an enlisted member or an officer. The following information will give you a better understanding of the requirements needed for each situation as it can become very complicated and confusing.
Each branch of the military also has their own set of requirements as well. Here is a list of requirements by branch. Please note that the age requirements vary depending on whether the individual intends to join active duty, the reserves or has prior service. Also all 17-year old applicants must have parental consent to be considered.
There are some exceptions to these requirements dependent on the circumstances. If you want to join but don’t quite fit the requirements exactly, call a local recruiter to see if there are exceptions for your specific situation.
