Thread: Should I lie at MEPS?

Can't believe even the title of the thread. How sad, how truly sad. And yes it's in all branches.
Can you imagine Chesty, Bull Halsey Dick Winters, my Dad, your Dad even thinking about such a question?
To the OP, are you in the habit of being a liar in your everyday life? If the answer is even a sometimes go find yourself another line of work. Why? Because a liar can't be trusted. Once you lose trust, damn hard to get it back
Start examining who you are, what your core values are before it's too late for you

I don't know anything about the enlistment process today but what's wrong with telling the truth? This guy says he didn't take the meds. The fact that they were prescribed doesn't mean anything. Dave's the expert but my common sense says, unless someone claims that they saw him taking them or a drug test found the meds in his body, its his word against a no ones. If you lie they are going to find out about it and from that point they won't believe anything you say. Tell the truth.

Agree, 100% Dave. I can understand him thinking about lying, he wants to be a Marine, Sometimes the desire overrules common sense. I give him credit for asking us and I think most of us gave him the right answer. I hope he heeds our advice

Aloha's presence will no longer be in THIS room, as his information is 100 percent what 'we' DON'T tell kids.
While not banned from the site, his posting permissions in the 'recruit' area have been removed.
Honesty is the best policy. Period. It's also what our NCO's are SUPPOSED to have, a little thing called "Integrity". Might want to look that one up in your 'NCO Handbook'.
Furthermore, lest some young impressionable girl or guy get the wrong idea, those posts, including where quoted, have been removed.
Next offense of THIS nature, and I will remove the offending poster for a period of not less than 30 days.

People sometimes get away with lying at first like one guy in my platoon back in bootcamp. He lied about having ADD or something like that, then he got hurt sometime in 2nd phase the docs were checking his files on meds he was allergic to and could or could not take and they found out he had been perscribed meds for ADD and that he had lied about it so he got seperated and sent home. Long story short from what i have witnessed is dont lie because they eventually will catch you. Now that kid is probably at home telling some story about how he was to tough for the Marine Corps or that he didnt feel like doing it anymore...dont put yourself in that position you are under a lot of stress at bootcamp why add more. God luck I hope everything works out for you

Are you asking about my post?
"To the OP, are you in the habit of being a liar in your everyday life? If the answer is even a sometimes go find yourself another line of work. Why? Because a liar can't be trusted. Once you lose trust, damn hard to get it back"
Did I call you a liar? You came here asking if you should lie, you were told no with the exception of one incredibly immature individual. If it wasn't me, in your mind, please point out who called you a liar.

Also, I realized the link I gave you for the examples of penalties imposed to those who had fraudulently enlisted and got caught was the same link as the first one I included. So here is the proper one:
Please take a look at it.
Ultimately, the choice is up to you. We cannot force you to enlist with integrity.
But I wanted you to be fully aware of what the outcome could be.

I'd suggest an answer to the Commanders question, if you wish to remain on OUR site.....
