For the past 12-18 months I have been going back and forth about whether or not to enlist in the Army and was finally about to work up the courage to go talk to a recruiter.
Turns out I ended up messing up my ACL wakeboarding and now am going in November 8th to get it reconstructed with a cadaver ACL. The doctor is one of the best, if not the best, in the Phoenix area. He said I can expect to be back playing sports and doing normal physical activities in 5 months.
Does the ruin any chances I have of joining the Army, or any branch for that matter? Or does it just depend on my MOS? I was really hoping to join as a infantry, 11B. With the dreams of a option 40 written into my contract that would get me into RASP....
Any creditable answer would be appreciated.
PS: I'm 23 years old, if I'm going to join I feel like I need to do it sooner rather than later
