I'd say you would most likely want you to get the metal out before you were able to enlist. And my two cents on you joining the military, if your not doing it for the pride and love of defending the country, then it may no t be the best option out there. Especially if you are just looking for a spark, recruiters pray on that. You learn a ton on how to handle real life don't get me wrong. But you are going to sign a contract that sells you to them, the things you learn you don't utilize till you are done. People get burned out quick and then you are stuck and hating it. The ones that don't tend to have that Gung ho doing this for america and country. Don't join the military as a last resort. I was in for 6 years and seen it first hand. And then those guys do something to get out and get a bad discharge and society shuns them forever not literally but they will instill that if you don't get a honorable discharge that your life is ruined. Hope this helps at all
