can join at 17 with parents permission pros: get some money for college, job experience, leadership, a sense of accomplishment, can go to basic training (for the army) between junior and senior year, positive role models at the unit, and many more but you get out of it what you put into it. cons: 17 might be considered a little young to make a decision that big in life (which is why parents need to agree), usually a six year contract with an 2 year obligation (if needed) after the six years, it is a part time job (for a full time job to live off of you need active duty)

Agreed with the other post. You cant join until you are 17 with parents permission. Pros: you get a jump start on life. Discover there is a whole world out there outside of where you grew up, meet new people, learn discipline, and money for college, and one may like it and decide to make it a career. Can retire and get a check at age 37!...cons: got to go to basic training, money isnt great, may end up hating it, reserves is only part time...join the real Army!...haha, Good luck!

Well the military lets poeple join at 17 years old with parental consent but the reason behind that is that your almost finished school.But unless your joining reserves to go to college then don't do it its not a good deal because the pay is horrible and its only exiting when your deployed.I was in the reserves myself when i was 17 but i never felt like i was in the real army so i joined active duty after i was finished high school.

To join the Reserves, you must be at least 18 unless you have graduated and have parental permission. No argument for that. You will get a small amount of pay for having one weekend a month and 2 weeks training a year out of your civilian life. Getting educational benefits does not happen for quite a bit of time served. You also take the chance of being deployed.
