OK, so you all know I got medically disqualified for applying for the NCP because I have a few kidney stones...boo hoo. I'm working with a new recruiter now, so hopefully he'll work some magic...
Anyways, I have been reading some military books like "flags of our fathers" and some others and they all seem to think "lying" to get into the military is a heroic thing. LIke, "oh, he said he was 18 but he was really 14 so he could enlist in the marines..." or "he used someone else's urine sample to pass the medical test..." and I keep reading how they could have taken the easy way out and used their medical problems to not go into the military but that they "found a way around it" and got in. (this being back in WW2 time...)
But I keep hearing about how you have to disclose every itty bitty piece of medical history you have and if you don't they'll find out (although I know this isn't always true) and you'll go to jail, etc.
Do you think I should have not said I had kidney stones? I mean, I know the answer to that is no if i want to be honest, but it seems like if I "really" wanted to be in the military I would have said no. So does my recruiter think I really didn't want to join by disclosing that info?
I'm just rambling here...any thoughts?
