Former Disney star Carly Schroeder joins US Army

DC: Carly Schroeder, once a regular on Disney’s “Lizzie McGuire” series, announced Wednesday that she is joining the Army.

The 28-year-old actress explained her decision in a lengthy Instagram post along with a photo of herself in tactical gear.



Schroeder began the caption with a nod to her first career in Hollywood. “For 22 years, I’ve played dress up for a living,” she said. “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,” she continued. MORE

  1. Welcome to the Army, Carly! I wouldn’t trade my 20 years in the Army for anything and yes, we are a family. You will make your Dad and brother so proud as I did as well. Hooah!

  2. She’s breaking the Disney mold where their child stars grow up to be dirt dog sluts. Miley Cirus, Christine Aguilar, Demi Levato, Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, Lindsy Lohan, et al.

    God’s Speed Darlin!

  3. She has already shown the world that she has character that very damn few of those who have anything to do with contemporary Disney/Hollywood have. What a gal!

    “I don’t care who she is, OCS at 28?….she gun feel dat.”
    Aaron: My daughter did it at 29, and yup, she felt it. Still at it, 10 years and 2 kids later!

  5. My daughter is waiting on word for ROTC Scholarships in college for the Army or Navy (wants to go nurse and then become a practitioner or on to med school).

    She is athletic, common sensical, and not afraid to kick butt.

    I reported to Navy Boot Camp at the age of 27. And the oldest recruit in my Company just squeezed under the limit at 30. It’s more mental strength than physical that gets you through Basic.
