Why don't homeless people just join the army?
I was thinking about what I would do if I ever became homeless and then it hit me, joining the army is a good solution. It gets you off the street, you get paid, and when you're done serving, you get extra perks. Hell, I'd rather get yelled at by a drill Sargent than beg cold New Yorkers for spare change.

What everybody else said plus you need to know that roughly 25% of the homeless are veterans.

If somebody like you or me became homeless because the house burned down from being struck by lightning the same day you lost your job due to downsizing and you didn't have any relatives to more in with that scenario would make perfect sense.
Many people are homeless because of alcohol or drug abuse, and severe psychological illnesses.Source(s): medic NCO

Mainly becasue by the time someone is homeless, they are usually too old to join the Service.

Many are too old, many have criminal records, many lack the education requirements.
The army won't take them if they're old...
