I have a question

I am about to get my acl replaced in my right knee, will this disqualify me from enlisting? Trying to join the marine corps. Any info is greatly appreciated

Life is a bitch on your knees and tons of athletes and labor type workers have rebuild joints and live significantly productive lives without issue. It's NOT disqualifying automatically....but like I said-It'll make life harder, and it won't be an excuse for lack of performance..but he can still give it a shot.

Thanks, I would do anything to join the corps like my uncle did. The doctor isn't even convinced its torn even though the MRI is clear. I'm going to everything I can to get better. I just hope I'll be able to enlist when the time comes

Looking the unofficial stuff I have - Appears you need a year from the surgery before you are eligible,and then you need the clean bill of health.

Good luck man,,.I hope it's minor and doesn't give you problems!!!

Well I usually heal really quickly so hopefully this follows suit. And if your info is correct then next February will be the earliest for me. Thanks you guys the recruiters down here don't answer the phone too often

There are waivers for everything in the military. Plenty of people get in that have had prior injuries or are just to stupid to pass the ASVAB. If you can perform you can join simple as that.

Well that's good news, how hard is it to get the waiver? I've heard recruiters don't like to do the paperwork.

If they need the numbers they will do all kinds of paperwork. Hopefully yours is in for a promotion spot.

I can only hope, especially in Miami they don't get too many that are qualified

Not really a legal issue more of an background check issue or not smart enough to pass the asvab or a drug test. I'm trying to lose the weight I need also
