Here is info on Texas:
In the past some states would not recognize Army LPN training. Depends on each state if they require you to graduate from approved LPN school. Also some states would not issue license by endorsement.
California will also accept Army LPN:
New Mexico will not license Army medics/LPNs.
LPN by Endorsement
Endorsement candidates must provide license verification from the state where they were first licensed. In most cases, endorsement candidates must show that they graduated from an approved program. LPNs must meet New Mexico’s educational requirements unless they were originally licensed by July 1, 1969. Military personnel who took the national licensing examination by July 1, 1977 and were subsequently licensed as LPNs, may be eligible for endorsement.

Indiana-the application for licensure is for graduates of US nursing school.
Just one thing to add: Recruiters make lots of promises, some they can't keep. Are you certain to get into the medic/LPN training? Did you get it in writing? I just checked & it says 72 month commitment. It is possible your studies might get interrupted if you get deployed. You do realize that is a very real possibility. However, you will get experiences not seen by civilians.
