I lied at meps . I was told I had heart murmur when I was 6 and was told that I would grow out of it little to say I didn’t they found it at meps . I have to go to a cardiologist 3 weeks from now to say if it’s a no go or not . The doctor who found it said it not a big deal and they will let me in . But I’m afraid that they will go back on my medical records and find out I lied . A bunch of others told me to just play dumb . What do you think will they look back on my medical records after finding a heart murmur ?

John Kellen you are aware you are on a public website and that anyone can read this, right?

You have runs risk that a Soldier could not live with. You will not be able to live the Army values and lead Soldiers in the future. It is best that you speak with your recruiter and explain that you failed to mention it as your doctor told you it was not an issue. You were torn and want to be honest. Own this and you may be surprised, if nothing else you will have evolved as a man.

CSM Darieus ZaGara - you just basically agreed with me. "I did try to always follow the letter of the law, I made many mistakes along the way, the way I felt with it was through honesty and integrity."

Integrity is what you do or how you act when no one is watching. Just something to think of.

Has "just asking for a friend" EVER worked, even if true? (January 6, 2021, subversive for attending the rally - not me, but a friend).

I think the individual is still at the MEPS stage of enlistment, and if I have understood him correctly, he is awaiting a medical waiver of sorts. What is the worst that can happen? They'll simply deny him enlistment and move-on.
