Curious Youngin' Needing advice?

Hi, I posted the same questions on Yahoo Answers and they gave me a link to this site. I'm going into that National Guard and I'm going in to be a trucker. I was wondering if after all my training and completion, even though I'm only 17 (Will be 18 when I get out of Basic and Training ) I was wondering if the state of PA would allow me to put in all the paper work to get a CDL to be a civilian truck driver because of my military background and training? I tried to call DOT about it, but I couldn't get anything other than a machine ( ugh. ) I decided I want to be a Truck driver because my father drives a big rig and he enjoys it so much! When he comes home, He will let me in his truck for awhile and it feels so natural to be in there! I mean, he isn't home a lot, but the pictures and statuses describing what he sees and the awesome things and people he encounters , I want to see amazing things too. It maybe isn't the best reason to want to be a trucker, but I know it's what I would love to do.

Other things that might be important to know: I'm a girl ( My dad says being female creates a lot of hazards in the trucking business ) I have never actually driven anything that uses air brakes I'm kinda short >.< Like, when I drive my Dad's Cadillac and my van, I have to scoot my chair up until I can't scoot it up any more so I can reach the gas and brake pedals >.
