I told you: this sucks for you. I am NOT happy about it. I was Infantry, and I would LOVE for you to know that experience.
But the fact is that one eye is not adequate for proper depth perception - God gave us two for a reason.
The man that posted above me, Team Infidel, is a Major in the Army that works in places you and I would be denied any access to. He knows his stuff. Even he is telling you that you're hosed. And you are.
None of us like it. But facts are facts. You do not meet the qualification standards. I didn't write them. No one in this thread writes them. No one in this thread can possibly supersede them. It is what it is.
I am sorry, my friend. I am honestly and truly sorry.

i know your story pal,i've been there,im wearing glasses and my eyes are,hmm not fine.i wanted to join an Infantry brigade called Givati,but the army says my galsses prevent me from joinning there,so i did all i could to join that Brigade,wrote letters,went talking to the miilitary doctors saying how much i want to help my country and give every thing i can,yet they refused.
i know how frustrating this can be,belive me,im joinning the Armor crops in July,and i dont know what ill do in the tank,i dont think they would let me be either the gunner or driver,so i realy understand you.
as they guys sayd,bless you,i know it dosent sounds good to you,but your country and every country needs men like you!

I feel for you guys, but the situation is not about you.
The military is a team and requires qualified team players.
Some situations cannot be wavered changed or compensated for.
All the free loaders and shirkers avoiding service who could if the would, but they won't.
Then you who want to but never can. My sympathies and respect for your efforts.

It's not only about depth perception. Your field of vision is severely limited to just one side of your face. This means that you cannot effectively pick up movement and light from the side of your face that is affected. You become a liability to those around you. In combat, it's just not worth it to take such a huge risk. Especially on someone who the military doesn't even know if they'll pass bootcamp.

Just because you can't serve ACTIVE doesn't mean you can't server. Find your local Marine Corps League and start to volunteer. Right now there is no way you can join the USMC. That doesn't mean that you don't already have the attitude and mentality of a Marine. Articulate to them your passion and respect and you may get the opportunity to get an honorable mention.
I know it isn't the same. But if less than 1% of the popluation of the US earns the title, surrounding yourself with those that have honorably served is the next best thing.
If you don't make your own decisions someone else will.
If you don't make yourself happy... no one else will.
If you want to make God laugh just tell him your plans!
