Topic: Heart Murmur


I have a question regarding heart murmurs. I found out I have an "innocent heart murmur" a few months ago.
Here's a link that exlpain what an innocent heart murmur is.

Would this disqualify me from joining the Corps?
Thanks,

You need to speak with a Medical Officer, but I know several Marines who served and had murmurs.

Thanks you sir for the information. Do you think the local recruiter would know?
Thanks,

He should be able to find out if he doesn't. However I would get your Dr to document the condition and present him with the paperwork.

Roger, I asked my Doc if he thought it would restrict me from joining, and he said no. He said it wasn't a big deal at all.
Thanks,

I got out of MEPS a few hours ago, found out I had a heart murmur. I have to go back in a few weeks to see their heart specialist to see if I clear for the corp.


My recruiter didn't seem to thrilled, but after reading everything I have (Spent a few hours reading everything I could on murmurs) I don't see why I should have any problems. *Knocks on wood*
