"If you do decide to go enlisted and then ROTC, I must caution you on one thing. If you go to ROTC as an enlisted member who has combat experience, a deployment or even basic training under your belt you may hate ROTC. You will be surrounded by…"

"What he said.  Besides once you're 18 there's nothing your parents can keep you from doing.  Yes, they'll be upset and sad, maybe mad but they, if they love you, will come to support you."

"If you are wanting to go officer, it would be wiser to try to enroll into ROTC. You won't actually be in the Army until you graduate and are commissioned, and it won't interfere with your education (would actually complement it). And they…"
