    Enlisted Marine

    My name is Coby Lee Fisher, and as of yesterday i am a Enlisted Marine of the United States of America. I plan to ship of to Basic Training July, 29th 2013. My projected MOS is hopefully going to be a Mechanical Maintenance Specialist. I scored a 57 on the ASVAB, So after a few years in the Reserves i am going to sign for Active duty and something with intelligence or technology. I had to receive an Admin Wavier for my weight though, because i weighed in at 117 pounds, and the minimum weight is 125 but my BMI was 17.9% so it was just enough to get me enlisted! Got the Wavier approved that very same day, Thanks to my Liaison. So just wanted to let the community know! Thanks.

    You make me sound weak. Just because i don't weigh much doesn't mean a thing. I can actually bench 110. Not so much i don't need to worry about lifting for the Marines. I need to worry about staying physically in shape and gaining a few pounds.

    Because you are weak. Facts are facts, 117 pounds sounds like no fat no muscles, all skin and bones. I have a friend who is 130 pounds and he is barely fat but he's not very strong either, he can only do like 20 pounds bicep curls.

    A better attitude to have is not that you're going to suffer through it, but that you're going to conquer it, consider the rigor your new way of life. What you do and how well you do it from the point beyond boot camp can affect who will live and who will die. So,"Semper Fidelis," "Be all you can be," and remember "The only easy day was yesterday"

    I can curl 30-40 pounds with each arm. They wouldn't have gave me a waiver if i was just skin and bones, i passed what i needed to pass. Now i have to get ready for what lies ahead, which is going to mean warrior training with my recruiter and what not. It doesn't matter how i look now, it matters what i am going to be after i finish and graduate from boot camp.

    I'm just saying. Obviously boot camp is gonna train you, but you should bulk up first before you get bullied in boot camp.
