Exclamation Will any of my past injuries stop me from becoming an MP in the army???

I've broken my arms multiple times and had surgery on my left arm and a screw put into it. I've also cracked my skull and had to be in ICU for a few days. but these injuries were years ago. would i still be able to join the army as an MP?? ive been training really hard for it and i cant find anything that says stuff about past injuries. i think i should be fine with a doctors note but i still want to make sure.

Thanks

You will need to gather any/all of your medical records, hand them to the recruiter and let him or her do a med pre-screen on them. And just remember that the extreme physical stressors that will be placed on your body throughout your military service may just aggravate those past injuries.

And remember, you're not an MP until you attend, complete, graduate from and are awarded the MP MOS. So, I'd suggest that you remove it from your username. Thank you.
And btw, what's with the avitar?

And btw, rossi, if you don't know the answer to a question, please, don't respond. Thanks.

At this point i wouldn't unduly worry about it. There aren't a whole lot of MP posers like Rangers, SF & SEALs. Those people are very touchy about it. I don't think you'll offend any MPS. The only trouble with a label like that - what if you can't or won't be an MP? Then you're stuck with a screen name that's totally irrelevant.
