You will need at least a high school diploma in order to join
the armed forces, and a college-preparatory curriculum is
recommended. High school courses in science, mathematics, physics,
computers, and physical education will be the most helpful. It's
also a good idea to take a foreign language, which may expand your
job opportunities. To enter the military, you must be at least 17
years old. Applicants who are 17 years old must also have the
consent of a parent or legal guardian.
