You can join the military without vaccines.
If you tell them at time of enlistment it's against your religion, or if you've never received a vaccine. You can waiver out.
If you've already enlisted you can try to get a waiver.

Just in case any one wants to join, or your kids want to.

This information is false. DH is active duty Aif Force, we have signed Family Care Plans.

Quoting MommyO2-6631:

I think it depends on which branch. In the air force it is not allowed but in the army it is.


Quoting kitty8199:

Not true. Just need a family care plan.



Quoting FebPenguins:

Never heard that one! But have heard both mom AND dad can't be in the military if there is a minor involved? Not sure if it is true or not?

Quoting PEEK05:

My husband wanted to join the Navy, but then we found out I was pregnant with #3 and now he has too many dependents under the age of 18. :( That's good to know for anyone else wanting to join though!

This article states that if you have a spouse in the military you can enlist only if there are no children in the household. If there are children you are disqualified from enlisting.

If you're both already in you can still have children.

I came from a military family. Several dual military all with kids.
My aunt and uncle even adopted and the navy paid for it.

That's what i was originally talking about... of course they can't kick you out for having children.
