Before I begin looking really deep into enlisting, I need to tell my parents I want to, and want them to be some what ok with it. Throughout my life, they would tell me not to join the military, but I just feel I should for the experience, and the fact it will help me with the other jobs I might want, something in Criminal Justice is just another plus. Do you have any advice on telling them? Also, I have been thinking of doing Indirect Fire Infantry Man, or an Infantry Man, MP, or even Special Forces if I can. I have been in shape my whole life, well I think so. Here is what I can do. 1 mile run - 6:15 minutes 2 mile run - 14 minutes (probably do better, not sure.) 3 mile run - 22 - 23 minutes. pull ups - 16 (I start from a dead hang, then I go up pass my chin, then I go all the way down back to a dead hang) pushups - 65 in a minute(around there) situps - 100 in 2 minutes Proably could do better when it really counts. I am still doing some research, and have not set my mind on anything, so any suggestions would be appreciated. I am not going to go to a Recruiter just yet, until I get the "ok" by my parents. I've heard from some friends Recruiters can be really pushhy at times. In the end it is my decision. If I do decided to enlist, I will need to get Lasik, which is something that might keep me from joining the military. I can't imangine going back to glasses, I had been using contacts for a while now, and it made my life easier.
