Although there are many that may sign up to enlist in the military, there are those that the military will also have to turn away. The military entrance requirements that are needed to get into the military may seem strenuous, but they are needed in order to separate those that will make it well in the military from those that may not be suitable at all for any military moves.
- Do You Have What It takes?
Military entrance requirements that are needed to enroll in the military are not all the difficult to understand and follow. The most important step for those that are in the military is that the applicant must be at least 18 years old. This is so that there is a completion of a school-aged education that has taken place, as well as making sure that the military will see the applicant as a legal adult, as stated by the United States government.
There is also the importance of making sure that there are little to no disabilities that the applicants will have prior to enrolling. This also includes any mental health issues that an interested applicant may have, as this can also hinder the overall effectiveness of the soldier while out on the field. Typically, the military is looking for those that have a strong mental and physical agility so that they can handle the challenges that are placed forth from the various applicants.
There are also the usually basic training that every new military enrollee must undergo in order to make sure that they are a suitable fit for the US military. During basic training, there are the agility exercises that must be mastered, as well as learning how to work with the military lifestyle. If there are any steps that are taken that can not be mastered, the military applicant will not be allowed to advance in the military, thus effectively ending their possible military career.
It is also important there each applicant is height and weight proportionate, which is often discussed and reminded at length for those that are already in the military.? Once an applicant has met all of the military entrance requirements, they will be well on their way to achieving their new military careers with the United States military.

My boyfriend joined the Marines in 1971 where he completed his GED. A new employer cannot verify this GED so I am trying to prove the entrance policy in 1971. My boyfriend claims that he could never have re-enlisted without the GED which he did 3 times over the course of several years. I am trying to obtain any kind of policy to verify. Please help.

If there is a hearing problem with one of my ears can I still work in some capacity of the military. This has been my lifelong dream. I have been in ROTC throughout my high school years and have been in a military school for two years. I have many accolades and have high honors from many officials.
What exactly do you have to do in basic training? I am thinking about joining the military and I want to train before I apply.

I have 8 misdemeanors and i am trying to get into a branch of the military. The Army said they can only wave 5 of the 8 and that i couldnt get in. Im a college student looking to do something more with my life and would love nothing more then to join any branch of the military to serve my country. Is there a branch that will ignore the misdemeanors on my record? If not, is there any way to get 3 of the 8 misdemeanors taken off my record? Mayor? Judge? Please help me.
