hi guys, applying for the marines and i was wondering weather it's best or not to inform them of my past knee injury. well over a 2 years my left knee dislocated and so obviously i got medical attention. I applied for the army a year ago and told them about the injury and that i had been training on it for a year and had no problems with it, but they sent me back a deferal saying i couldnt apply for another 'x' amount of time! i finally gott my senses together and decided to apply for the rm's but wanted to no wether i should just not tell them about it just in case and hope they dont find out??????

Yes, be honest, as it's on your medical they will see it anyway more than likely.

Honesty is always the best policy unless you just shot his dog :biggrin:

I'd go along with those sage words.

They will check to see whether you have had a previous application for the Armed Forces anyway & will be aware of the result of previous applications.

Best of luck. Dislocations are only usually a significant problem if they recur in a set period.
