It usually takes a few weeks to get enlisted, due to paperwork and information processing. To start the process talk to your local recruiter, he will file the paperwork, then you will go to your closest Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS), if you pass MEPS, you will be sworn in as a Soldier and you will attend Recruit Sustainment Drills until you ship out to your basic training station.
