Wouldn't think so.  At least I was never told that from the recruiters I spoke to when I was going to pursue my Navy career... (went a different direction though)

Check with them.

I wouldnt think so either as long as you are able to pass the physical and are 100%.

Best of luck to you

It's been 22yrs but I got into the Navy with bilateral patellectomy. I passed all the physicals to get in and had a note from my doc. They kicked me out of boot camp with only 2 weeks left because I couldn't run 2 miles. They had me on a bike instead, (they called it a chit) which was working out perfectly, until a captain saw my scars and threw me out.  I was devastated, but everything happens for a reason. I know if I could've run, they would've never noticed. Best of luck to you!!

Hey there,
In 98 I was going to go into the service, however after I informed my recruiter that i had a meniscus tear 2 years earlier, they never called again. Knee's aparently are a big thing. I asked my Cousin who is in the Army and in Iraq about the reserves, and he said im no even a slight candidate anymore. So id say no, the Service is quite strict these days!
