Can a 16 year old gain permanent residency inside the US? Posted on March 30, 2011

I’m 16 year old living in Arizona since I was 3 years old. As I approach my senior year I wish to enlist in the Marine Corps which I cannot do without being a permanent resident. Wow can I obtain my permanent residency without leaving the US? I haven't committed any crimes and I am a good student. And if I have to leave the US, how long will it take me to gain the residency keep in mind I wish to do so before turning 18 next year in May.
