You might want to double check on this. My cousin was just told no because they said hes got high blood pressure. He was going for the Marines. They sent him all over for BP testing and even had him wear something for 24 hours and take a journal while he had it on. They turned him down a week before he was to leave because of high blood pressure. You might want to call your local recruiter and ask them. Good luck.
