Hey Joseph, 

Seems like you're on the right track. I started investing when I was 20, and its been the best decision I have ever made. Its great that you can take advantage of the VA loan. Just keep being frugal and saving to get where you need to be to get your first purchase! If you utilize the VA loan you wont need much money down ;)

Good luck to you.
