Possible waiver

Post by JoeBlow » September 8th, 2019, 4:45 pm

Hey all,

I'm hoping to be able to Rep 63 for the NG SF. Here it is:
I was 13 (Now 22) and cut my left wrist. I have 3 scars on my wrist that are faded. My mother and father were in the middle of a divorce and then my mother was diagnosed with cancer. The stress with the separation, cancer, and taking care of my younger sister weighed on me pretty heavily. I guess I just acted out in hopes of attention or whatnot. I honestly can't say why I did it but it's a stupid fucking mistake that I have to live with forever now. I'm not depressed and don't have a history of it. I've never attended counseling. (I talked to a Master Sergeant when I was inquiring about 35 series for the NG before. I know it's different for SF and Spec Ops in general though) Is this something that I can obtain a SpecWar waiver for? Thanks for the itme

We don't really have a lot of folks involved in the recruitment process anymore to answer questions about waivers. General advice will probably work here... Don't lie. Not sure how obvious the scars are either. If you didn't require significant treatment or have anything in your medical records about it I really doubt it is an issue. But they will ask what scars you have (or they used to). I don't recall them asking me to explain any scars.

Thanks for the response Ranger Disinfertention. I'm not going to sweat it and just keep on the path I am.
