Im currently 17, turning 18 in 5 days. I'm still in highschool because I started school 1 year late. i don't have any doubts about the army but doubts about me and if i would be elegible. im in the forum to talk to someone who has possibly been in my shoes and experienced training, drills, deployment, war, etc. and is willing to talk to me and walk me through, what really is the ARMY.?

Welcome, Kevin!

Welcome to Army.com Kevin, to give you the best information, we need a little more background info - why do you think you wouldn't be eligible? Check out the page http://army.com/info/usa/eligibility and all it's linked pages, and then feel free to come back with any questions you might have!

thanks

Thank you.
I have a social an Im a legal resident of this country. I been living in the U.S foor 9 years(I been here since I was 9). I messure 62-65 inches, and weight 170-180 pounds. The las time a check my height/weight was about a year ago, thats the reason all of these are estimates. Also, I will be getting my high school diploma this upcoming year and Im sure that my GPA is at least a 3.5: I entered a early college program that my school offered and receive some credits at Penn Valley Community College (Kc, MO).
The last thing Im worried about is that I have done drugs before; it as about a year ago and I understant that it was non-sense and I most defenitly wont do it again because i do not need it.

I just want to make sure i can enter into the army. Im very sure this is what I want. The army is future when it comes to education and personal skills.
