Hello Leaders,

I am looking for some information about the Army OCS process (recruiter-class date). I will be ending my service with the Marine Corps in 2019 (eight years) and starting my journey to hopefully attend Army OCS. I love the Marine Corps but unfortunately, I made some silly decisions in my first enlistment by getting a few tattoos that disqualify me from becoming a Marine Corps officer. I will be finishing my bachelor’s degree around the same time I EOS from the Marines. I have maintained a great track record in the Marines as an infantryman, and currently have a 3.92 GPA. My main concern is MEPS. I am very good shape, but I do have my share of bumps and bruises (two surgeries). These bumps and bruises do not affect my physically abilities, but I am still very curious and a bit nervous about the process. At the end of the day, I would love the opportunity to play a larger role in the planning process. The army is my first choice because I have worked with Soldiers and even though most Marines would say there is a difference, I don’t see it that way. Any input on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

Very Respectfully

The main concern for me is getting out and banking on this opportunity, just to be denied by MEPS for whatever reason.

Go for it! But, watch the USMC/USN language (Head, bulkhead etc...). I ran 5 miles every time I used the terminology. My class was Very heavy in prior USMC or USN, so I had plenty of people to run with.
