    Help becoming a Marine

    My son went to MEPS and passed. He was later told by the recruiter that he was being turned down on "moral" He has no felony charges and has over 70 college credits. I am a former Marine as was my father. The Marine legacy cannot die here. I have two grand kids that I am hoping to join some day. My son is determined to be a Marine. We will keep trying until he is off to Parris Island. Any constructive advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Semper Fi................ANGF(Air and Naval GunFire)

    "moral"

    Moral what?

    That was it?

    "moral"

    Seems like there would be a bit more to share.

    Does he have a criminal record?

    Did he cop to doing drugs?

    Five years ago he was arrested for drug paraphanalia and was put on probation. He violated his probation with a dUI. Both misdeameanors. Presently he does no drugs and does not drink. He is married with a 3 year old. The recruiter told us that he just got a person in with a felony assault on his mother.

    PM a GyC or slimmy07 on the leatherneck site and ask your question....

    They are both recruiters

    This could be a dead horse getting answers from Marines since we are not recruiters.

    You can also go into the Poolee Forum and read some of the responses for felonies.

    Do a search on the site and it might answer some of your questions ...type in felony waivers.

    Good luck.

    When I joined (at 19) I had 2 felonies and a mis.... but they were expunged when I turned 18. I never heard about the "moral" issue

    I just heard this morning on the radio that all branches of the military met their goals with recruitment last physical year and had to push people back to the start of this physical year. I am sure they have plenty waiting to sign the dotted line. He just needs to keep trying. Eventually all those that got pushed into this physical year will go away and he will have his chance. He just needs to be hard-headed like most Marines are and keep trying. Good Luck.
