I have read through this thread endless times, but I still have to ask. I am a dual citizen with the U.S. and U.K. and I am wanting to serve. The U.S. Marines are offering me a spot for their Platoon Leadership Course, but I really want to be a Royal Marine. The issue is my eyes. They don't meet U.K. regulation. I am willing to wait till I'm 22 and then the 12 months, but is there no chance of a waiver for the pre-op +6.5 that I currently have? Even if it is fully taken care and I am corrected fully? I ask because the U.S. is offering a waiver for training and surgery from the Navy after I complete training, along with many other rather tempting offers. I don't want to quit on the Royal Marines, but I also don't want to keep slamming my head into a closed door when another one is appearing to open.
