Height Requirements


i thought males had to be at least 5'8" to be in the service... any branch. army navy marines air force.. guard...etc..
i thought it was a requirement like the police force in some states.. you have to be at least
5' 8" tall. any shorter is kinda not too intimidating.. imo..
is there a height requirement for the service?
a guy i know joined and he was only 5' 7". i thought they laugh at him..he cant be a cop, but the service took him..


There are some jobs in the military that have height requirements. Service members in honor guard units and some who do embassy work come to mind. I am not aware of height requirements just to get into the military, though.


A 2 second google search would have answered this for you.


Audie Murphy was 5"4".
