Hi, My name is allisyn smith, I am 15 years old and plan to join the army as well. I’ve always been interested in the medical field and i think that would make an awesome career. My family is big and will not have the money to help put me through college, but I believe that this would be a great alternative. I love helping people and would be honored to treat them. I am considering graduating high school as a junior to join the army and train in the medical field. I am wondering if joining that early would be a possibility and how to get extra information on enlisting. Please e-mail me information on how to accomplish this, it would help alot.
