Long story short I was an idiot and cut myself about three years ago. My dreams of joining the corps were destroyed almost instantly after I realized that self harming is an automatic disqualification at meps, something I completely failed to think about before screwing up so bad. I have very significant scarring all over my body, so it's not something I can lie about at meps (I. e I fell, got into an accident etc). Since then I've given up on the corps, to try and pursue other things, but I constantly feel called to the marines. It's been a year since I graduated from high school and I've been working dead end jobs while going to school for a general degree because I don't have a passion for anything else. Last week I ran into my rotc instructor from high school. He is a retired first sergeant and was a "grunt" in the marine corps. He was also a drill instructor. He knew that I cut myself In high school and was one of the people who helped me stop. I told him my concerns and he told me that I should still try speaking to a recruiter. Another time, i was discussing my situation with a friend when a recruiter for the navy approached me. He told me that regulations change all the time for the military, and that I should try speaking to a recruiter because I seem very passionate about the military. A friend told me that after the election the military will probably be upsizing, and therefore they may loosen their standards to allow more people in. I guess I wanna know if things are just over for me or if I should even bother trying.

how on earth can somebody want to be part of such a huge wrongdoing like that?0
