  • General Questions...looking for honest answers.

    Im interested. Just have a few questions Id like honest answers to.

    I have a previous back injury. Herniated my L5 disk. No surgery, not a current issue. Ive been told this is a disqualifier for me. True?

    I guess Ill start with this before I get into my other questions.

    Thanks!

    Even if you got in something like a herniated disk would be exacerbated on a ruck march or some other rigorous activity. I've seen many guys that had prior injuries like yours spend a lot of time in and out of sick call and/or get sent home. And they didn't get sent home right away either. Some guys sat around for weeks or even months, particularly, active duty trainees, either waiting to get shipped back home or being given the runaround waiting for a consult so they can get a return to duty status.
