I just turned 25 and decided to finally take a turn for the better in my life and join the military. My first choice was the Marines, but the recruiter said I was DQ because I have a tattoo on my foot and also on my wrist. So, I went to the Navy, my passion has always been nursing. I was diagnosed with Psoriasis in August 2006, I was on medications for it but am not longer taking any medications. My psoriasis is almost completely gone and there have been no flare ups in the past year. I am well aware of the hectic effects that psoriasis has. I was wondering if there was any way that my condition could be waived. The Marine recruiter told me that it was possible and knew of a gunnery sergeant that had it, but i have yet to talk to the Navy recruiter.I have looked on the internet and found conflicting things. The list of disqualifying conditions lists psoriasis, but there are people who have posted on other sites that they have gotten into the military, most just stay state side. I would be content just working in the states if need be. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks On a side note, I sent an email to DoDMERB, but am also looking for anybody else who has had to deal with this.
