If you want to improve your credit score, don't pay the full balance. Pay a little every month (make sure it is at least the minimin balance and that you do no go over your limit) Or is it that you have to pay the full balance because you will not be able to make monthly payments after you go inot the army (online or by mail?).

And also a big thanks from me - thank you for your service.
