    Well thanks for all the help, Marines.

    Looks like I might just have to dumb myself down to the Navy

    im sure there will be plenty who have issues with the forthcoming statement, but:
    im not going to say lie. all im going to say is that i know many a Marines who were in similar circumstances & just "withheld info" of this nature so they can serve. & guess what? some turned out great Marines. Others were turds.
    i know a lot of people say lying to get into the service is an integrity violation, & those that lie are not worthy of the Title. In many ways this is true. In some ways it is not.
    For example, i also know that a lot of Marines lied to get into the Corps during WWII (including CMOH recipient Jacklyn H. Lucas), & i doubt anyone is going to say he lacked integrity of character.
    so is it wrong to lie to get i? thats up to u, & how bad u want it.
    & yes, if u are caught, u will be in a world of shyt.
    just my $.02

    Just don't tell them dude. They wont ever find out about it. You know how hard it is to get a hold of Medical records? They wont go through the hassle unless they have a reason to.

    Yea, because I want a depressed Marine sniper watching my back when people are shooting at me...

    Depression is a very serious illness and shouldn't be taken lightly, and most of all, shouldn't be lied about in order to get into the Marine Corps. We shouldn't be encouraging someone to "lie" by "withholding" info about themself to a recruiter and the doctors at MEPS, especially someone who's been diagnosed with depression.
    What happened many, many years ago has nothing to do with those wanting to get into the Marine Corps these days. Different time, different era.

    This azzhole smitty is some piece of work now, he's trying to give some poor kid advice to fraudulently enlist. Enough messing around, if anyone knows who this Marine is please PM me with his name and unit!

    Don't worry about me lying, thats something I'm NOT going to do. I already told my recruiter that I have depression, and he didn't say anything about it (The only reason I'm not in the DEP yet is because I'm waiting to transfer schools), Just gotta hope for the best I guess, could be waivered, might not. But Just gotta move on with life if it doesn't.

    Again, thanks to all you Marines

    haha calm down guys. That wasn't me writing that ****. I got offline to head to the store a couple hours ago and left a former Marine by himself at my house. Glad to see where that got me.
