Joining the Marines

1 reply [Last post]

I really want to join the Marines but I have asthma and I know it will be hard to join. I read somewhere that there is sort of a program in which they monitor you seeing if your asthma gets better. Is that true? I would like to join the reserves.

If you were diagnosed with asthma after your 13th birthday, or you still use an inhaler to control it, you're almost certainly disqualified. If you were diagnosed before 13 and you don't have any symptoms, it may be possible to still enlist.
