Hey ya'll, I recieved my offer of appointment several weeks ago in the mail, and am now in the proccess of completing the paperwork. However, I'm really confused as to the Academy's policy on pierced ears of female midshipmen, so I'm not sure how to fill out the body alteration form. In the form, it states that intentional mutilation of any part of the body is prohibited, but then goes on to say that "enlarged or stretched holes in ears are prohibited (other than a normal pierced earlobe for women)". So my question is: should I disclose to the academy that I do in fact have pierced ears as a female, or is it unneccessary because it does not apply to the form? Thanks in advanced for the help. Go Navy!
