Re: I\'m back...
Well, that's too bad, I was wondering why I hadn't heard from you. At least you have it a shot, and being honest was the correct thing to do. When I was in basic there was a former Marine going through boot with us. Well, one day they came and got him, MP's handcuffed him and everything, seems he had a prior record of something (fighting, drugs, something bad) and had been discharged from the Marines, but not dishonorably. Well, he neglected to put it on his application and they found out well into the training. Too bad too, because he was a nice guy.
I'd look back on this as a positive experience. Even though you didn't get in, you saw a need to change your lifestyle and you went for it. Then, in the thick of things, you decided to tell the truth and be up front about everything, which is honorable. It was their choice to have you leave, not your own, so as far as I'm concerned it's their loss.
Don't go back to the same old grind. Find something new, and start your life over the way you want it to be, this is the perfect time to do it. I applaud you for trying and being honest, you're top notch in my book, the world needs more people like that.
Glad you're back on the BBS!
