Okay, I have wanted to join the service since I was 8. (I'm 16 now) Exceot, now that it is time to start the enlistment process (Talking to recruiters, getting info, ect.) I am running into problems on 2 fronts. 1. I am female. I am founding out it is very difficult to excel because of this particular trait. 2. I am homeschooled. Believe it or not MORE is actually expected of us. We have to score above average on the test before we're even considered. What really bothered me was talking to a naval recruiter (over the phone) last evening. When he asked what Highschool I attended I told him I was homeschooled and he say's "Oh your homeschooled?" It was the way he said it. As if to say "What's wrong with you?" I am just really frustrated. Knowing that I am just as comitted to this as some highschool football star. It makes me angry that I will have to work just or harder than him, but not be able to go as far in my career. Any advice on how to handle this?
