    Just browse through that list. Damn, that's a lot of stuff.

    This is why I don't recommend lying when it comes to your health.

    "Remember that if you do not get an official waiver and your condition is later discovered, you will most likely be dishonorably discharged for fraudulent enlistment. The choice is yours".

    Yeah not telling the truth about my health is not an option for me . . . It just doesn't seem worth it.

    you knee will never be the same, i dont have any problems with mine, but itll always be in the back of you head that you dont wanna hurt it again. i had surgery last year on my knee due to wakeboarding also, I had to get my ACL, MCL and Meniscus repaired. it sucks.

    Thank you for your optimism! haha!

    Yeah it wasn't worth it at all... It was my first time out all year so I was just playing around "getting a feel for things" again and it happen.

    My ACL repair got me PDQd, when I tried to enlist in the Marines, had all the paper work from my Surgeon saying the knee was good to go, passed all the tests.

    Still got rejected. YMMV

    Yea give it a shot, Be up front and honest with them, all they can say is no.

    I'd advise having a back up plan.

    Not sure if my ACL's were torn prior but they have been torn 80% for the last 36 months and they dont want to fix them. It has came down to you pass the physical tests or we are going to MED BOARD me and out I go... Im fighting to stay in.
