It's not fair....!!!!!!!!!
Tell me this, how can someone get a waiver that is legally deaf in one ear, yet I have only partial hearing loss in one hear and I get denied? How can a person join the Marines only because he is trying to escape a jail sentence and or fines and erase his criminal history? How can we be short on troops and they still deny me? They will waiver someone with an asvab score of 27 and a criminal history and still deny me!!??? I've been writing my senators and talking to everybody I can. Why do I feel so let down and stomped on by the very thing I look up to? All I can say is that they have no choice but to eventually let me in or arrest me. Everytime I get turned down I call back. I even scout for recruits for the recruiters. I believe this is an injustice to me and my country....

I am taking charge. What's the difference if it's a high frequency hearing loss if the other person is Legally deaf in one ear. My other is ear is perfect. I have asked why and all I get is the I don't know answer. They told me to write my senators well I have written every one of them. I am getting multiple opinions from other doctors. I just know that my senators will get dozens of mail from me until something is done.

Secondly, if you are this much of a whiner, maybe the Corps just isn't for you...

Unless the recruiting deleted names are liars, then that's all the hearsay I need. Besides the 2 recruits I pt'ed with have a criminal history and one failed the asvad because I was with him.

Write to your congressman and the senators, but don't whine like you're doing right here.
Every case is different, that's why there is a waiver process. There actually is NO SUCH THING as legally deaf. Whatever hearing loss that person had was acceptable and apparently on first glance, yours is not.
Marines don't whine about things not getting done. We get them done, or we destroy it, and conceal the evidence.

It's not fair....!!!!!!!!! Cowhands never holler Whoa in a tight spot, in fact sure nuff 'real' hands rarely use the word whoa unless their smokin and jokin or tellin a story. USMC Recruits quickly learn to extract the word 'fair from their vocabulary and Marines only use that word pertaining to: weather, health, county, food and drink, fishing conditions or my fair lady. Control yourself.

When you drive away your friend says, "I would have told that SOB such and such, if it had been me". Make sense?
Relax, talk to your recruiter, forget what you have heard and ask the recruiter for his advise, instead of telling him what you are going to do!
Hope his helps,

Outlaw, that's awesome.
As for you Alantra, what kind of response were you hoping to get from your post??? We're here on our own free time to provide advice, not assistance. We do what we can here to help...if you make it and become a Marine then great. If not, then it's no skin off our backs. Maybe the Marine Corps just wasn't meant for you. Stop comparing yourself to other people that have enlisted...Nobody cares. Honestly if your hearing is a liability then I don't want you anywhere near me. I trust that MEPS takes into careful consideration who they let in and who they do not. They know what they're doing.

Life isn't fair. If it were it would be pretty boring.
I am a little confused though. Why did you come here and talk about someone being "legally deaf" when there is no such thing? Why did you say that someone's criminal record can be erased? Once you have a record it is with you for life. If you don't believe me, go get arrested, get it expunged, and then apply for a top secret clearance.
We have had several people come to this forum with hearing problems that were keeping them out of the Marine Corps. Some of them were able to overcome the issue, others were not. However, those that came here in a professional and polite manner were given more help than you could imagine. However, you will not be getting that help. Your whining just makes me thankful that you will not be a Marine.
