    Yes, "enrolled" is much better.

    You enroll at a school, college, or university.
    You enroll in the army.
    You register to vote.
    You register your car.

    Well, that's at least what we say in the USA. Perhaps an English speaker from former British Somaliland might disagree.

    Hola Zumac

    Re: You enroll in the army ? You must mean enlist or sign up.

    Not from Somaliland... but Xanadú...

    Your right, "enlist in the army" is the more common term. But "enroll" is also used. Maybe I was thinking of enrolling in the Xanadú army.
