I'm a 5'0 teen girl that's interested in the US Air Force. Would I stand a chance? What do I do?

I'm 5 feet tall and barely over 100 lbs. I have asthma and anxiety (both are steadily getting better), and parents that don't approve of my interest in joining the Air Force when I graduate. Do I stand a chance and what should I do?

    If you could pass a physical, then you should be ok. As for your folks, well, it is your life to live. I enjoyed my time in the Air Force!. 2W051

    With the health problems you posted, that's I believe a end to the attempt to try. One hopes that your recruiter is going to know the true answer to this. Keep in mind that military service in the USA has been a voluntary thing for years now. Many will try, but only the few may make it. That's just how it goes. Thank you for trying, but if such holds true to form. You got such to strike against you.

    two show stoppers:  asthma and anxiety will both sideline you.  now if you  'forgot' to report either....that is on you.  but they will listen to your lungs and it is pretty hard to hide asthma

    Unless you can pass the Air Force's pulmonary function test, the asthma is disqualifying.

    The anxiety is also disqualifying and having a history of it will probably permanently bar you.

    just don't tell them about your asthma. don't listen to the haters.

    No chance of enlisting whatsoever.

    The asthma is a PDQ and there are no waivers. You cannot serve at all so will need to choose another path
