Based on my personality and being a female, will it be hard for me in the military?
I'm a 19 year old female was considering enlisting, either active or reserve. I want to serve my country and I always do a job the best I can and have good integrety, and love physical challenges, but I'm worried about the people. So I'm definately not a partier, still a virgin, and don't use rough language, I guess I could be considered really innocent. I love people and always try to get along with everyone but Im just worried about things I've heard. I've heard multiple times from some of my friends who served that there's constantly parties, and alot of that pressure and that there are alot of r**e cases. I want to enlist but I'm worried I guess. Will it be hard for my type? Does anyone have any thoughts?

I have been in the military for 18 years now. There are parties, but the military of today is a lot different than in the 80s. Parties and such are sort of a thing of the past. They happen, but there is not pressure for you to go. There are quite a few people in my unit who do not drink and have very high morals... More

We need people like you in the US Military. Your question is a good one. Based on what you say, you might be better off to make a deal for educational support and go in as an officer rather than enter as enlisted personnel

I'll let you in on a secret, as long as you have boobs you'll do GREAT in the military, you'll get some cozy back office job that lets you sit in the A/C all day, you'll get promoted ahead of more deserving males, you'll get lots of attention and you can cry your way out of trouble 99% of the time....

You sound like me when I first went in to the army. None of the things you mention set an alarm off for me. I would consider maybe going in as an officer rather than enlisted. A commission would suit you better personality-wise. You can look in to ROTC and get a degree out of the deal too... More

I do not think you will have any troubles at all I think you will be fine, yea sometimes people have parties but you don't have to attend and you will make allot of good friends who will watch you back, just don't put out to the first fool you run into and keep your nose clean you will be fine.
