    They can tell if you had a tonsilectomy so please dont lie. As a former Doc I never knew of anyone being disqualified for a tonsilectomy so just be honest. good luck son you shouldnt have any problem

    Good for you. See, some of these lies are very small ones, and concern very insignificant things, and normally don't cause you any problems, but they could. And here's the biggest thing of all, keep this in mind. Once you BEGIN lying, you almost never stop. The next lies are bigger and better and more damaging to yourself and others. So good decision on your part, and please keep us posted as to how you're doing?

    Yes, OP, believe it or not, the lies start once, and they end up going on and on, even to your friends, and you just can't stop. So you did the right thing, and please keep us up to date on what you do from here. Right on this same thread. It will fall by the wayside but just bring it back up again. Good luck to you.

    I had a hand surgery back in 2005 as a result of being a jackass, and my recruiter said tell them about it. So I did the doc asked me if I could function fully. He made me do a few exercises, and a few motions. When I showed him it was functional he just shrugged it off, and said alright you're good. You'll be fine, MEPS is cake.

    If you lie to get into the Marine Corps, your lies will find you out. Be honest and truthful, and in most cases, you will be approved to enlist.
