When I went to meps in 2009 I had to see a specialist for my vision as well. When I say I'm blind as a batt, I can not see the big E without contacts or glasses. I'm corrected to 20/20 or better depending on if I'm wearing contacts or glasses. It was just an extra step on the way to boot camp. They just wanted to make sure there wasn't any major reasons for my horrible vision. I went to the specialist and a few weeks later I had my ship date. Just hang in there and it will all work it self out.

Look, don't let an obstacle bring you down and cause you to not complete your mission. You will come across many obstacles in the military - so get around it whichever way you can, be that over/under/around/or through it.

He's clearly not enlisting to be aviation, and no S/S contracts in the Corps.

Ask for the waiver. Be persistant. They dont need you, you need them

Hopefully it will all work out and they will let this kid in. But anymore with the Force Shaping, Down sizing or whatever pretty name they are calling it. They are sending people home each day, not allowing reenlistments, and turning down applicants at the door. That allows the services to be extremely selective.

Man, I had like 20/200 when I joined. I later had PRK, through the army. If they aren't going to let guys in because they wear glasses we are in a sad state.

Me too, I had the same when I joined the Navy, then about 7 years in got PRK also. Still got my BCs as a momento. I can't believe that vision is a show stopper?

It's Obama's military, just wanting to be in is reason enough to deny you, you violent gun loving right wing radical anarchist!





Was that my outside voice?
