Should have done what everyone else does when enlisting:

Lie.
User avatar #18 to #17 - paintballplayer (09/12/2012) [-]
True dat. But I hear ya OP. That's ******** .
#27 to #18 - yukithekid (09/12/2012) [-]
Agreed.. and it was my mother who ratted my asthma out.. I was 17 when I first went to enlist and the first thing she said to him was that I have asthma...
User avatar #95 to #27 - paintballplayer (09/13/2012) [-]
Lol moms ruin everything. Always caring about their kids and **** ... geez...
#96 to #95 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
yep...
User avatar #43 - Eleatperson (09/13/2012) [-]
And the reason I hate people these days
>Lie
if you wanted to be a Marine then you shouldn't lie in the first place...That is the scum that I hate in my Corps...
#45 to #43 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Yeah but if they sense asthma you get handled much differently. I run every day long distance without issue... Yet still disqualified.
User avatar #53 to #45 - Eleatperson (09/13/2012) [-]
yeah I know, a lot of my buddies tried joining with me and we were all **** hot...but some of them had childhood asthma and couldn't, best thing to do is to not get discouraged and keep doing whatever you have been doing
#56 to #53 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Yeah I still wake up early and pt. I'll just be the best cop I can be and just keep on keeping on.
User avatar #60 to #56 - Eleatperson (09/13/2012) [-]
just dont be one of the dick ones that look for military on purpose and try to get them in trouble because they couldn't join
#64 to #60 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
I support anyone going into the service. The recruiters tried their hardest to get me in. Even supported me during pt and helped me get a pt group together.I wouldn't betray my family.
User avatar #72 to #64 - Eleatperson (09/13/2012) [-]
are you still gonna go to the poolees pt and stuff? extra motivation for those that can go
#78 to #72 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Let me put it this way I was "not there." Just a lil waiver to keep people out of trouble. (You aren't allowed to work out with them at functions and at stations) However they still go to the gym a couple miles from there so of course I'll still PT with them. Even though only one of the ones from the group is left. (the new guide) Trust me my recruiter tells the pooles every pt that there is a guy wanting to be a Marine who can't go. At one of the pts "i wasn't at" he said that to the pooles that there are more motivated people that want to be a poole then some that are. I dropped a couple hints in there..

Join the Navy as a corpsman for the Marines. You still get to work with them.
#67 to #62 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Can't DQ goes across the board. I can't even go Airforce...
User avatar #68 to #67 - fxremastered (09/13/2012) [-]
Weird, my brother had a heart condition and was turned down for the marines but he got into the Rangers.
#73 to #68 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
That's weird?! Rangers is just as hard as Marine Infantry. Both NCOICs told me the same thing if one DQs me i'm done. (I'm referring to the Army and Marine NCOICs that I spoke to before making my final decision)
User avatar #77 to #73 - fxremastered (09/13/2012) [-]
Man that really sucks, come to Canada! :) We pay better anyways :P lol

My family is like 8/10th American 2/10th Canadian, and I swear every male in my American living family are in the Military, and a few here in the Canadian ones as well. I love our troops of both countries and I will always support them, including the ones such as you who worked so hard to defend our great countries but was denied because of a non-existent health problem.

:( You should be proud of your accomplishment even though they didn't let you in.
#79 to #77 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Trust me I am. Since I first signed the papers I've lost 20lbs, got back into the shape i was my senior year. A little more work and I'll be better then I was then.
User avatar #86 to #79 - fxremastered (09/13/2012) [-]
"I bet he could still join the coast guard"

Why not try that?

"thats why you lie about asthma" - Apprentice Seaman "Sanchez" Shafer

My brothers reply to me telling him your story.
#97 - fuckmyoldaccount (09/16/2012) [-]
Can't be a Marine.

Over qualified to be a cop.

Become The Batman.
#98 to #97 - yukithekid (09/16/2012) [-]
o.o I'm broke. Is there any broke superheroes? If not then I'll become Bankruptman >:D
User avatar #35 - icandividebyzero (09/13/2012) [-]
OP You silly child. Lie next time.
#50 to #35 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Heh If I get reincarnated (athiest, but you never know) I'll try to remember that XD
User avatar #81 to #50 - icandividebyzero (09/13/2012) [-]
Well I hope you do find some way to get in. I'm joining Force Recon when I get in. I already meet all the pre enlistment qualifications.
#88 to #81 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
So far unless there is a war and they bring back the draft there is no way. (I had a long conversation about this with the recruiter... He said that's the only way.)
#59 - anon (09/13/2012) [-]
and this is why you lie.
#65 to #59 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
I think i'm the lesson for everyone who wants to go in.
#42 - flamtapdan (09/13/2012) [-]
try the army bro... and lie.
#46 to #42 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Can't disqualification goes to all branches.
#51 to #46 - flamtapdan (09/13/2012) [-]
well ****
#55 to #51 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Yeah... When I went and spoke to the Marines my old info from five years ago put a two week delay on my med read.

Better than dying over there, good thing they didn't take you.
#30 to #29 - yukithekid (09/12/2012) [-]
I was going into an information field. Even though every Marine is a rifleman, there wasn't any chance of me going to war.

I tried that as well.. Two doctors cleared me. Their doctors still said no.
User avatar #15 - justadude (09/12/2012) [-]
move away
#16 to #15 - yukithekid (09/12/2012) [-]
Thought about it, but my friend who is a police officer told me they could use me and they told me to go sign up for classes.
User avatar #7 - LTB (09/12/2012) [-]
What if you were born with Asthma? Is there still grounds for a permanent disqualification?
#8 to #7 - yukithekid (09/12/2012) [-]
Depends on how old you are during your last asthma attack. The Marines consider 12 to be the oldest for "childhood asthma" However if you are going to tell them go off what your medical records say. If there is nothing past 12 then you know nothing, I know nothing. I don't know what you are talking about. (I don't think that gets clearer)

I'm not saying to do this (HINT HINT) but they don't have access to your health records. Just remember what ever you tell your recruiter you tell the Drs at MEPS. If they sense anything is up you can get into some crap.

I'M not SAYING TO NOT TELL THEM YOU HAVE ASTHMA. oops... caps >_>
#10 to #8 - yukithekid (09/12/2012) [-]
I'll add one more thing.. My mom was the one who told the Army I had asthma. Otherwise they had no idea. The process for the waiver is long and drawn out. They told me at the most it would be 6 months for a reply. (The new NCOIC apparently knew people and got it done in the two weeks he was there... Sorta made a red flag, but at least now I know.) You will need all paperwork from your doctors. Any medicine and treatments. I wasn't on any meds and I haven't seen a doctor for anything other then routine physicals. (still rejected) So what ever you do be very careful and expect a lot of waiting. I went and did pt with the Pooles while I wait. Keep in mind you can't PT at poole functions, but there are ways around everything.

Start studying the Orders as well as Marine history.
User avatar #9 to #8 - LTB (09/12/2012) [-]
I learned that you don't have to tell them about medical issues when a friend of mine told the recruiters he had Chrones disease, obviously they rejected him. I should be fine from what you described, as while I've had asthma my whole life, its never been a huge problem and I've not had an attack that I can remember.
#11 to #9 - yukithekid (09/12/2012) [-]
I assumed marines, but for any branch you will need to study your orders and history. Makes your life at basic much easier and if you are ahead on PT and knowledge there is a chance you can graduate as an E4 (this doesn't include marines) or E3 (thats marines)
JROTC gets you PFC however they can demote you if you are... well not doing well at basic.
User avatar #12 to #11 - LTB (09/12/2012) [-]
You assumed correct, I plan on joining the marines after college. Feel stupid asking this, but what is PT and what do you mean to study "orders"
#13 to #12 - yukithekid (09/12/2012) [-]
PT is going to be your best friend as a Poole. Physical training.
Orders change by branch. For you it's the 11 General Orders. It's orders that no matter the rank or position you must follow. Even the tech guys like Skippy (PFC in 25 Bravo Army) get guard duty time to time.
The guide that I had when I first switched from Army to Marine recruiters told me the easiest way to remember. To take, To Walk, To Report, To Repeat, To Quit, To Receive, To Talk, To Give, To Call, To Salute, To Be. Disregard the grammar and it will help you remember all 11 orders quickly.
From there you will need to know when and where the Marines were first established. 1775 Tun Tavern Philadelphia Penn.

You sir made my day.
Thank you!
#5 to #4 - fuckyoubitchh (09/12/2012) [-]
You're welcome man. It sucks working hard for something and then end up getting ****** .
#6 to #5 - yukithekid (09/12/2012) [-]
Yep, was my dream. Yet it's not all bad. I can still go to school and become a police officer... I'll be one of the good cops here XD
#54 - babyraper (09/13/2012) [-]
this is bull **** . im in. and i had asthma 4 years back... you are a liar or quitting easy OP
#58 to #54 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Um... How did you get in? The only reason why they even attempted is because the NCOIC saw that I was willing to do anything to get in.. He told me 50/50 (then he was transferred and the new NCOIC got back to me immediately and said DQ)
#61 to #58 - babyraper (09/13/2012) [-]
waivers like a mother ****** .
#66 to #61 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
You're fortunate then. We tried to do a waiver. I worked with three Marine recruiters who tried everything. They even had me go back to my doctors to get more info to prove that I had childhood asthma and no issues. MEPS doctors felt differently.
#76 to #66 - babyraper (09/13/2012) [-]
redo MEPS there are like 3 docs who check lung&heart and one is a dick. so if you go again you should do fine
#80 to #76 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
They wont let me. Unless there's another way to get around this? I was told if one DQ me then there isn't anything I can do?
#83 to #80 - babyraper (09/13/2012) [-]
well if its permanent for marines try another branch.
#85 to #83 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
They told me DQ is for all branches. Maybe I should talk to another recruiter to see.
#87 to #85 - babyraper (09/13/2012) [-]
yeah cant hurt
#89 to #87 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Yeah the worst they could tell me is no..
#90 to #89 - babyraper (09/13/2012) [-]
good luck i hope you get in.
#92 to #90 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Thanks

Join the Navy. We rock. I was a Corpsman, FMF designated. We go with the marines. Usually the Navy gives waivers for anyone who has had mild asthma as a child, or anyone that has not had an attack for several years. If you are really dead set on being a 'trigger man' go for SEALs.
#107 to #106 - yukithekid (09/21/2012) [-]
They told me if one branch DQ me all branches will not accept me.
User avatar #99 - funnywizzard (09/16/2012) [-]
You can't try to go to MEPS again and have your recruiter cover that up?
#100 to #99 - yukithekid (09/16/2012) [-]
MEPS would have all my med documents.. Wouldn't work.
User avatar #104 to #100 - mechbaird (09/17/2012) [-]
meps has no access to your medical history only what you provide them with i just enlisted in the marines on june 18th
#105 to #104 - yukithekid (09/17/2012) [-]
You missed some of the other people who already asked about this. They have my medical records because my mom told another recruiter who gave the info to meps. At the time I was working with said recruiter they were accepting people with asthma and said that as long as my last asthma attack was before 16 i'm good. *things happened and i had to delay my enlistment* I go back when I am now able to enlist and the new recruiter told me there may be an issue. Now they only want people who's last asthma attack was before the age of 13. We still tried to get a med waiver however they wouldn't do it. In short if it wasn't for that minor emergency that made me take a civilian job I would have already been in the military and not have to worry about the recruiting policies.
User avatar #101 to #100 - funnywizzard (09/16/2012) [-]
Hey dude that doesn't mean it's over trust me. I'm going through the same b.s right now you got to get your recruiter to help. Don't give up yet man. Remember Marines never quit.
#102 to #101 - yukithekid (09/16/2012) [-]
Well they worked with me for two months before they got the doctor's opinion.
User avatar #103 to #102 - funnywizzard (09/16/2012) [-]
Well don't give up man there is always a way around haha maybe pray for **** in liybia to kick off then they'll take anyone.
User avatar #41 - indeedsir (09/13/2012) [-]
i know how that feels man. all ive ever wanted to do was been in the military. i wanted to become an army ranger specifically. im in excellent shape and ive been disqualified for having asthma. same as you i havent had an attack in nearly 10 years. i was also told i should just become a cop. im not really sure what im suposed to do with my self anymore. im sorry about what happened to you man
#47 to #41 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
Well we can become the best cops we can be... They get paid well. Still disappointing though..
User avatar #93 to #47 - indeedsir (09/13/2012) [-]
yeah it is disapointing. i hope you end up doing something youre happy with man
#94 to #93 - yukithekid (09/13/2012) [-]
