    Recruitment Question

    Just a quick question before I walk infront of a recruitment Sargeant and look kinda dumb. I have an illness that requires me to get an injection every nine weeks that takes about an hour and a half to two hours to administer, though the injection nor illness do not have an effect on my physical or mental health or stability. Do the Marines recruit people with such a condition?

    What is the condition? How long will you have to have this treatment?

    Is the spelling right? WebMD doesn't have anything on it.

    I know a SSGT that was diagnosed with it when he was a PFC. So, you can clearly be in the Marines with it. (Though he didn't get much treatment, he just had to deal with it.) I don't know what the rules are about letting you in with the disease though.
