Can I join the military as an international student and serve for four years? While enrolling, can I hire an immigration lawyer to help me pursue a green card? By the way, I love the military. I will be a LPN in two semester if that helps.
You should listen to the recruiter. They do have programs now, which in some circumstances may be available to you.

I am swimming upstream on this one-unless something has changed very recently and I missed it, you must have a green card to enlist (INS I-151/I-551) in any service branch. You used language suggesting you do NOT have a green card--I think you are NOT eligible to enlist.
