Thread: Should I lie at MEPS?

Here's a bit of advice----when you are deciding what to do. Just think of what Aloha would do---give it some serious thought, then do the exact opposite, and you'll always come out all right.

He'll come out a civilian while his peers that did lie go on to succesful careers in the United States Marine corps.

Yes, Aloha, it's all about lying and no integrity.
Look how far it took YOU.

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

Dan, it is interesting. Instead of asking what he should do, he asks if he should lie, showing a predisposition to it already, as if trying to find a few who agree that he should, so he can go from there.

I was just thinking nearly the same thing as I was logging back on.
It's one thing to lie and have no integrity.
It's another to advise someone else, and especially a younger person, to follow in his footsteps.

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.

Right, Tony, tell the truth. His question was SHOULD he LIE to MEPS, so that means he was already thinking about doing just that, lying
Then Aloha comes along, the greatest Marine who ever put on the uniform, and advises the kid to lie, outright lie, and then says he, Aloha, lied himself.
It's one thing to act like a purebred jackazz, that's fine, but to lead someone else down that path? Uh uh. Not good.

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

Absolutely, Tony (HST to you folks)
