    Yes and no. There are programs like the GED Plus where you engender a partial commitment and the Army will pay for you to take the GED test. For age, only if you have parental constent at 17 and such. Call me for details.

    If you don't want the "used car salesman" feeling of talking to a recruiter face to face, check out You can chat to a live recruiter there w/o having to give your name or address and get a lot of great information.

    Good luck.
