I know those are bad excuses but I wasn't sure If i should attempt to joing if I might not even be able to get in. What do you guys think.

Overweight is not the issue, you will not be overweight once you are done with boot, the asthma, now that might be a limiting factor, but it is best to ask a recruiter.


\"U.S. Marines are about the most peculiar breed of human beings I have ever known. They treat their service as if it was some kind of cult, plastering their emblem on almost everythng they own, making themselves up to look like insane fanatics...., which I have come to the conclusion they are!\"

Asthma is a very serious condition, contrary to popular belief. I don't think that the Marines is a good place if you have asthma. There is a lot of things that you would be doin that would cause a flare up. If you say you are slightly overweight and have asthma you know this already but the asthma would be less if you lost the weight. Not only to join something but for your own health. LilHulk is right though talk to recruiters and see what they have to say.
