Enlisting??? Where do i start

Just graduated, been thinking about armed services quite seriously. My first idea was navy. But the marines are cool too. And so is the army.... I'm 6'7" so the Air Force was out in the beginning.... I want to be either infantry or some type of fireman/medic but haven't gotten very far.... I just work at my local sporting good store and I don't see college as something I wanna do.

What do I do?

Do you have any family or friends that are enlisted? I grew up to the nations largest naval base so there were always a mix of people I would encounter to get an inside scoop. Seeing as you are very tall, not that that is a problem, it doesn't hold you back from a ton of things maybe just specific areas. Like a tanker persay.

I don't see how being 6'7 DQ's you from the Air Force. I'm 6'5 and I've been in the AF for almost 6 years..and I've seen some Airman taller than me.

I wasn't interested in the air force to begin with. But seeing as to how I'm very tall fitting in aircraft would be a total pain.... And I know there's other things to do in the Air Force but I'm just not a fan

The good ol yellow foot steps change lives

height has nothing to do with getting dqd out of any branch of service and to be a pilot in the air force you have to have a degree if I'm correct
