Can You Join the Military With a GED?
Yes! You can join the military with a GED. The military often requires a high school diploma, but it is still very possible for you to become a member of the armed services after you earn a GED.
No matter which branch you are looking to serve in, you still must meet the age, citizenship, height and weight, and legal requirements in order to join the military.
Each branch of the military has tiers for recruits and classifies all of their recruits into one of three categories. Tier 1 recruits have earned a high school diploma or have completed 15 credits (one semester) of college. Tier 2 recruits have a GED. Tier 3 recruits have neither a GED or high school diploma.
Tier 2 Recruit
If you have a GED and are looking to get into the military, you have to know that each branch sets its own limits. For example, less than 1% of the annual recruits for the air-force are Tier 2, while roughly 5% of the USMC are Tier 2. One of the biggest ways to help you get into that small percentage of Tier 2 recruits, is to score well on your ASVAB.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is key for a Tier 2 recruit to make it into the military. Tier 1 recruits only have to score 31% or higher on the ASVAB. Tier 2 recruits have to score 50% or higher. The ASVAB also provides grounds for what you are qualified to do in each branch. If you score well enough in certain areas and show knowledge or talent in those areas, you can be recruited to fill a specific job, which pretty much guarantees your recruitment.
You can win the debate bro.
What would the internet be without dumb circular arguments, though. Popcorn sales would be minimal.

LOL no one even mentioned the military so unsure how that even came up?
Also, considering that both soflaac and I (along with soflaac's wife) are veterans of the Air Force, I would imagine that we would know what the qualifications are to enlist in the Air Force Lastly, I don't think soflaac's daughter is going to enlist in the Air Force anytime soon, she learned from her parents mistakes
Yeah, being a single parent raising 2 teenagers with 0 assistance from their mother = I do not have the money to send them to private school.
