i've been waiting to turn 18 for over a year for the sole purpous of signing up and going to recruit training to become a MARINE! Well i found a bump in the road, or in this case two. my elbows I had a small fracture on my left and dislocated my right, it's been 4 years on the right and 7 on the left. The recruiters don't seem to happy with it, and frankly neither do I, So i filled out the form about my activity level, and honestly I was thinking how i have time to sleep at night with all the time i am doing physical activity. But what do some of you marines think my chances might be?

Considering these problems happened years ago, you should be fine. Especially if they aren't causing you any problems now. I really don't think there should be a problem with it. People break bones, it happens. It's usually not disqualifying unless you still have any pins and screws in you or if you didn't recover 100%. Be persistant, I think you can get in!

If you can scratch your azz, and load a weapon, you will be fine. Your frame 100%?

Good to go, with a little patience.
