If you've never served in the military before, you must be between the ages of 17 and 39, pass a pre-screening interview, then participate in a written and physical exam to start. Qualified individuals will then go through a skill selection process, swear an Oath of Enlistment, attend a drill weekend, attend Basic Military Training and attend tech school.

If you have previous military experience the process may be a little different. For example, prior service recruits may be exempt from basic training and tech school. Please ask your recruiter for details.
