The troubled ‘Teen Mom’ cast member is thinking of joining the army to get back on the right track!

Now that Amber Portwood is back in jail for missing her drug court appointment, a new report says that the reality star is trying to get her life back in order by joining the army.

The 21-year-old has been telling friends she is considering enlisting, according to a report from Reality Weekly. 

Her brother, Shawn, has encouraged her to join. “I’m encouraging her 100 percent all the way,” he said to the publication.

The Army veteran wants his sister to get an education, like him, through the G.I. Bill. “I told her to hold off on college and try to get into the military, which she wants to do anyway. Then, once her service is up, she will have her college paid for, like I do right now.”

Her felony charges might deny her application, but the source from the magazine said that Amber is going to “bust her ass” to prove that she has gone the straight-and-narrow so she can provide better for her daughter, Leah, 3.

HollyMoms, do you think the joining the army is a good idea for Amber?
