  1. Good for him. There are also those who try to serve but are unable too, because of conditions that are not within their control. I was born with a congenital heart condition. Although this was repaired at the age of 1 day. The fix left me with abnormal heart anatomy even thou my heart functions normally. This condition has left me disqualified from service with the Army and Marine Corps. I lost over 130 pounds in order to join and am writing the commandant of the Marine Corps pleading to get in.
