I received this in an email:


I took the oath at MEPs and I was told by my recruiter that nothing will happen if they find out that I lied. I don't know, I am kinda scared, I asked a few other recruiters but they said the same thing.

I lied about me being arrested, I said I wasn't arrested before  I have been, when I was like 15 but it never showed up in my police report. If they ever find out what do you think will happen??
please I need some help

Thanx, (Name Withheld)


I think that the question you should be asking yourself is do you want to start off a career in the Marine Corps on a lie? When our very existence is based on honor, courage, and commitment, how can you expect to enter and then thrive in an organization where integrity is your greatest treasure?

I cannot tell you what to do but if you want to be a Marine, you had better start taking responsibility and owning up to your past mistakes. If you come clean and they take you, then you know that you stood up like a man and can then hold your head high. If they reject you, then you know the same thing. If you lie, then you will forever know that you faked your way in and I guarantee you that it will lead to other lies and eventually result in exposure. Then if you have made it to the fleet and we discover your dishonesty, you can just stand by because the scene will be less that pretty.

As an officer, if I discover any of my men as liars, I would make life very hard for them because they are jeopardizing everyone around them. Just some food for thought.
