Honestly? As a parent, no, there's no way I'm going to give you "advice" to finagle your parents into letting you enlist. Yes, it's great, you want to enlist. But for a parent, it is a very very emotional moment. Let's face it: Sailors, Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Guardians go to war. That's our job. Sometimes they don't make it back. And for a parent, the prospect of losing a child is a frightening thing. Try to understand your parents' position. Yes, I realize you're ready to enlist now. Wait a year, and get the experience. Once you enlist it's at least 3 years of your life that is total commitment.
