joing the military

I'am about to turn 17 this aprol and when i turn 18 i wanna join the army or the navy as sonn as i can! i think that they should accept everyone as long as they dont have a felony because you can never have too big of a military and because if someone wants to fight and server for there freedom and country the should have the chance too.

I am a 36I year old man who has been trying to join the united states army/national guard for almost 2yrs now and it's getting so hard and im also getting tired. I as AN AMERICAN citizen should not have to fight my government to join the army its not fair that illegals can come into this country and join the military by saying WHERE IS MY DREAM ACT. Its just not fair that I want to serve my country but my country wont serve me.

It's not hard.

No, joining the military isn't hard what so ever. If you have an education (High school diploma) and no criminal record, no medical issues, and you're not a signle parent, you shpuld beable to join. And if your a U.S citizen. That's half of the worrying done. Do well on the ASVAB test, and you should be just fine for about any branch.
