My rating falls under the general rate of Aviation, not Seaman.

They cant DQ you if they dont know about it.

...really? My friend joined the Air Force they looked at all his medical records. He was misdiagnosed with a heart murmur and they DQ'ed him, then he got examined by a doctor and they cleared him.

They will give you the most thorough exam of your life in MEPS. If he has a heart murmur they will find it even if its not in his record.

They check everything, trying to hide anything will only allow them to boot you later on if its found you lied to get in.

Then you get at least a less than honorable and no benefits.

My heart murmur is very slight, I've probably grown out of it though. I haven't been checked for it ever. I think I could pass MEPS. Though now I'm trying to be a police officer so I probably won't be joining the military now. Tough choice.

For the OP: Can you ask your recruiter to hook you up with another chap in your position? When I joined the army, I was "referred" by some guy I met for the first time on the way to MEPS so that guy could get E2. I was told I'd get the same hook-up if there was a guy available when I went to basic but it never happened. All the E2-E4's (we had two guys with college degrees that went enlisted and got E4) wore their rank and were addressed as such when I was in basic back in 2001.

Don't sweat what you can't control now. Just get in there and rock it out and you'll get promoted quickly. I was combat arms (19k) and went from E1 to E4 promotable in 2 years there at Ft. Hood. I had to have 6 months retainablility but joined on a 2 year contract so I had to reenlist to get my E5. I bounced out and went to college instead. Otherwise I'd have gotten E5 before 3 years.

It is definitely what you make of it. Keep your nose clean, be where you are supposed to be when you are supposed to be there and always have yourself squared away and you'll stand out from the other bozos that think they can beat the system. High speed, low drag...
