Alright so I've got this decently sized tattoo on my back, that is an Iron cross, it is right under the C-7 Vertebrae. My Recruiter, said basically if I got a doctors note, I'd have no problem getting in.
However, he asks me what kind of cross it is, I tell him it is an Iron cross. He says "its not waiverable" ,and it'll stop me from getting in.
So if this is the case, why are their medals with the Iron cross?
Further more, if my tattoos are such a problem, why is there a Drill instructor with tattoos on his forearms,and upper arm being advertised as a Marine ON their Recruiting site.
^Week 7 its visible.
my ASVAB AFQT score is 53
outside that I have no history with the police, or anything else.
I have my HS diploma.
I don't get the bullsh*t they're throwing at me,it makes no f***ing sense..then again maybe it isn't supposed to.
I guess I should try the Navy/Army/Air Force.

Only thing I can say is...the iron cross is probably considered gang affiliation under the marine corps' regulations...i have plenty of ink and I'm in the Army, however, with the cutdown on troops, they are making bigger issues out of smaller things like ink. Luckily under new regulations, I was grandfathered in meaning since I already had my work done prior to enlisting I'm good1
