    ummm..when theres a war on they lighten on requirements so you might get in. 

    but normally in peacetime they look for officers more than cannon fodder.

    and as far as I know thats world wide all countries defense systems.

    youd do better with a military history or college degree.

    when you drop out of school you really dont leave yourself many options.

    can you read and write more than your name?

    do you even know what "military" means and what it stands for?

    can you even lift a few pounds without hurting yourself? I'll bet you think you can dont you. dude, it takes an education just to work with out killing yourself.

    life aint a free ride because your dumb.

    A high school dropout stands NO chance of enlisting in the US military. A high school graduation or a GED with 15 college level 100 credits would be required to be eligible to enlist in the US military.

    army life is very tough ,,you must settle into the hard life in the army  ,what;s more ,once you join the army , freedom will be taken away from you  , you can't go home whenever you want ,you must be obedient ,what's more ,if there is a special tasks , you may be dispatched to front line without prior notice , which means you need to follow the order unconditionally ,  if you are totally OK with that ,then ,I recommend you to join the army ,these days,military institute set a strict criterion for people who want to join the army ,such as age limit ,body,vision requirements ,etc ,you can google these requirements ,and think about it carefully ,

    If you can't even hack high school what makes you think you can even begin to hack Basic Training.

    Not in Canada.  Education is super important in the military.  I spent 1/3 of my 25 years on formal courses, or training in schools.

    NO.   The U.S. Military requires you to have a HIGH SCHOOL Diploma before you enlist.

    UNLESS, you join the Reserves at age 17 while your still in High School.

    Since the military does not allow drop outs to enlist, no.

    Even a GED holder must also have 15 100 level college credits in order to be eligible to enlist

    No - a GED or diploma is a requirement.

    No, since you need a high school diploma.
