• My son is 18, has severe autism and is non-verbal. Do we still need to register him for selective service?

    Best answer: Yes, it does not matter if he is the only child, only male, has cancer, only one leg, dwarfism, or anything else. It is a federal requirement to register. They haven’t used a draft in over 40 years so there is nothing to worry about

It just says usmc, I never maintained any reason that someone would think I served except that, but I got accused of stolen valor because of it, I know that it doesn t fit the description, but should I stop wearing my buckle?

  • If my boyfriend gets medically dischargd from the army, will he be able to join the navy in a few more years?

    My boyfriend has recently joined the army and he was just at the end of his first round of bootcamp when he got injured (a crack to the femur) and sent home on a 30 day leave. He just went back a few weeks ago and has contacted me saying that the bone didn t heal properly and he s thinking of just taking a medical discharge. His plan was to take the discharge and use his time home to go back school and get a bachelors degree so that he can go back into the military in 4 years and be able to start off with a higher ranking than he could this time around. I love my boyfriend but he doesn t have the best track record of making good decisions. I m afraid that he might not know what he s doing and if he takes this discharge he won t be able to join the navy like he had his heart set on doing. I would hate to see him disappointed if he couldn t go back in. Will his plan still work if he takes the medical discharge?

    I am supposed to go to MEPS today and have the physical tomorrow. Problem is I’m supposed to take my boyfriend back home tomorrow morning around 10am and the meps starts at 5am. I would ask someone to take him but no one is avaliable and taking an uber/taxi would be super expensive. Plus I am scheduled to work today and they’ve already threatend to fire me because I kept taking days off for meps before and they would always fall through. I told him all this already and the recruiter said he can’t change it. On top of all this he lost the job I had which was a medic and now claims he can’t reserve me another job and I have to wait to talk to the counselor there. Btw he just told me I was going today not even a couple days in advance. I’m annoyed and he’s being overly pushy. My question is if you don’t show up what happens? Will they not let you enlist? Or will it be impossible to find a recruiter again because of a bad reputation?

  • Am I cut out for the Marines or US Navy?

    Long story short, I've had a relatively easy life. School has never been an issue, graduated high school with 30+ college credits, had a great home life, plenty of money, all of that.

    Long story short, I've had a relatively easy life. School has never been an issue, graduated high school with 30+ college credits, had a great home life, plenty of money, all of that. In a week I'll be starting college, but with little interest rather than to please my family. It's because of this that I'm CRAVING a challenge to make me feel a strong sense of accomplishment, and escape the monotony of civilian life for at least a few years. On top of that, I want to be well traveled and experience moving to other states or countries. In terms of physical fitness, here are my stats: 5k Run) 21:00 1.5 Mile) 9:36 Pushups) 57 Pullups/Chinups) 10 Situps) 65 I already took my ASVAB with the Navy (scored an 88), but never took the next step because I couldn't decide between the Navy & Marines. Any advice or words of wisdom?
