You can find out from a school counselor, I'm sure he/she can find out some information for you. In high school towards the middle of the school year, juniors and seniors are signing up for colleges so the school will have people from different colleges in. They have military people come in also to talk with students. There were a few guys in a couple weeks ago at my school for students looking to join the military. Hope this helps.
Dreams do come true, but patience is a big quality in the service so start training now. Give yourself a few more years and during that time you can build your mind by going to school. The army sent my nephew to college and when he is finished he will be an officer. Something to think about. You can be what you want jut remember you do not want to waste all that youth on things for old folks. All of us would love to have the time you have before adult responsibility. God Bless your future
You have to be 18 to join but it's never too early to start training, get a backpack and fill it up with rocks and go hiking uphill with it. Add more rocks as you get used to the weight. Take marksmanship classes, martial arts lessons, do lots of sit ups and push ups.
