Too short to fly?

    Too short to fly?

    I've recently become very upset at realizing that my lifelong dream of being a USAF pilot may not happen. I meet EVERY physical requirement EXCEPT for the fact that my sitting height is 32" whereas the requirement is 34" I have a standing height of 65 inches. I had hoped expected to grow more by this time (since my parents are not short), but since I am a 17 year old female I'm guessing that I'm basically done. I know that the Air Force has very strict requirements on who they accept as pilots, but have they every been known to make any exceptions based on other criteria? If not, would I have any opportunities as a naval aviator, or another branch of the military? Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance :]
