Just curious as if it will be one of those suck it up and shave or if there are any exceptions.

You don't have to suck it up, there is laser hair treatment for hair removal that the Army will pay for.
But, yes you may have a shaving profile, I have a buddy who is a warrant with one. However, I know that in his board packet he was clean-shaven

By regulations, you may be able to have one, but I have never seen one. I’d advise to figure out how to shave better. Just my opinion.

Oh ok thanks. I mean I can shave but with razors like bump patrol, they just don't get as close as Gillette razors.

SSG (Join to see) O had shaving issues in the past. Best thing I have found is to use a pre-shave oil, a good soap lather with a brush, or a good shave cream. Also, multiple blades on the razor do not make it better. I switched to an old school, single blade safety razor. For one, you can by a pack of 100 for about $20. 2nd, they have been around forever, so they must work. 3rd, more blades equal more irritation. Afterward, use a good after shave lotion. If you get lots of in-grown hairs, shave once in one direction, then shave again in a cross direction. It makes the stubble into more of a point, and keeps it from sticking and becoming in-grown. Barber tips complete. Hope it helps.
