((hugs))  I'm sorry you went thru that...

Quoting fantasticfour:

No I didn't.  Not for lack of trying.  When I tried to get in, I was trying to get into the marines and they refused to accept me as a female at the time.  Yes I am aware that it was illegal but wasn't aware of it then.  BY the time I got somewhere that would take me I was all ready and failed the physical and couldn't enter.

I didn't.  My disability (MD) wouldn't allow it.

No.

Stepdad was army and grandpas were army.
My sister wanted to join up by going to West Point. Because of her disabilities they didn't accept her. But she continues with ROTC try school.

I did do ROTC so I know just a bit.

I did not. 

I have many members in my family who have; my grandfather (Navy), father (Army), uncle (Navy), cousin (Navy) and a BIL (Marines).

No.....I would have never made it through basic!   I would see a spider and FREAK OUT.       My Dad, My DH and my brother all served.

Looking back on it, I'm not sorry.  If I had joined the marines, I would more than likely have been in the pentagon when that plane hit it, I would never have met hubby and I wouldn't have the life I have today.  And I wouldn't change that life for anything :)
