How hard is it for a small girl joining the army? 5'1 and 92 lbs?
I am joining the army (mainly bc the recruiters are a lot more helpful than the af recruiters around here) and i was wondering if you knew any small girls that went through basic and made it? Or do you think it's impossible for me? This is what I truly want to do. I'm 5'1 and 92 lbs currently but I'm gaining the weight properly and working out to gain muscle mass.

Depends on what you want to do. I think being a pilot's out of the question because of specific height/arm length requirements.
