Well most people leave after the minimum contract of four years, but of those who stay most would stay for the full 22 years to get the full benefits and pension and stuff(that's UK, don't know about other countries). Of course a few stay on for even longer as high ranking officers or to get a bigger lump sum payoff.

My husband just joined the army and the standard is 4 years active duty. After your active duty is over you can chose to either re-enlist or become a civilian in which case you will stay on for 4 extra years as army reserves. Staying on extra as an army reserve isn't optional either.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

The minimum service is about 4 years, which starts when you turn 18.

But it varies from each individual, some people love the Army and commit to their Regiment for 22 years.

Some people hate the Army and get out as soon as possible.

And some people make it into the SAS those men are Truly LEGENDS.

You can enlist at age 17 with parent permission, otherwise you need to be 18 years old.

You can first enlist for 2-6 years. This all depends on what MOS you are signing up for because certain MOS's you need to enlist for a longer amount of time.

You must give the military 8 years no matter how many years your first enlistment is for. You can do this all active, or a combination of IRR, Active, Reserves, or National Guard.

It all depends on that person who enlist on how many years they give. I really can't give you a definite answer on how many years the average soldier stays in. Each month there are retirement services where soldiers are retiring after 20 years (number of years you need to do to retire in the USA Military) and up. The last retirement ceremony I went to a few months ago, someone was retiring with 32 years of active duty service.

And some get out after their first enlistment.

Really hard to answer this question in regards to the average soldier. My husband is a soldier and he will be retiring, I have a friend whose husband just got out and he only did 3 years.
