Carly Schroeder is trading fame for fatigues.

The former “Lizzie McGuire” actress has enlisted in the Army.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I’ve been considering it for a while and it is a big choice, but thankfully my parents and my little brother were very supportive of me,” Schroeder, 28, told TMZ on Wednesday. “My dad was actually in the Army, he was a Green Beret medic, and my little brother Hunter, he’s in the Marines now.”

Schroeder said that working with veterans and advocating for human trafficking victims was behind her decision.

She’s undergone numerous training courses and is interested in working in military intelligence after she completes Officer Candidate School, she says.

For 22 years, I’ve played dress up for a living. As an actress I’ve been kidnapped, gone blind, nearly eaten by lions and murdered on more than one occasion. I tormented Lizzie McGuire’s little brother on the Disney channel, was a dolphin trainer, the first female soccer player on an all boys team and Harrison Ford once rescued me during an intense home invasion. . That’s exciting and all, but in January I decided to raise my right hand and swear into the United States Army. With a college degree from @callutheran in Criminal Justice, an ASVAB score of 92, and qualifying PFTs… I was accepted into Army #OCS (Officer Candidate School). . There are three BIG reasons (among many others) why I am taking a break from Hollywood to #goarmy . 1. College opened my eyes to global injustices. But on a more tangible micro level, there is human trafficking occurring within the United States. I’ve written papers, spread awareness and as an Army Officer I intend to learn skills I can later apply when I’m on a team helping these victims. . 2. Serving my country will give my voice more validity. I can better serve and advocate for veterans once I am a part of their community. The military is a family and family always has each others back. . 3. My brother is a Marine and my Papa was a Green Beret… There is no way I am going to let the boys have all the fun. #hooah #actresstoarmy #startedondisneynowimhere 💁🏼‍♀️ . Thank you to my big brothers who teach, encourage and support me. I’ll make you proud. ♥️ @hunter_schroede0372 @claskytac @greenlinetactical @longhighwayhome @garand_thumb @tyler_hughes_ss

I was on @tmz_tv and it didn’t involve a wardrobe malfunction or a disastrous love triangle. Granny will be proud. . You would think after all these years of practice, interviews would be easy, but I still get incredibly nervous. I had no idea what to expect when I agreed to do the interview. Thank you Harvey and Charles for your kind words and support! . I would like to clarify a few things. I swore in to the Army in January. Most of the training I’ve done was in preparation for action roles. @tnvc_inc @telluricgroup @maxordinate @greenlinetactical @tarantactical . I head to basic training in April and then, since I have a college degree and passed the board, I will go to OCS. . I am looking forward to working hard and earning respect from my fellow soldiers. Despite my story being publicized, I want to communicate that the veterans and currently enlisted personnel really deserve the recognition for their scarifies and service. I am proud to become a part of your family. . I have set high goals for myself. I am determined to make a difference and help others. I have had a lot of people tell me that one person can’t make a difference, but at the very least we should try! . #goarmy #tmz #lizziemcguire #warriorswanted #helpothers #mindsetiseverything
