Underweight before ship date.
 Login/Join
 

posted
Hello,

I have recently joined the United States Army as an active duty soldier, sworn in and everything. Although I am in, when I took my physical at MEPS I was about 8 lbs. underweight and still am, and I do have a very soon ship date. About 2 weeks. I am wondering what will happen if by my ship date I do not meet the weight requirement (I am also a hardgainer)? I would like to know what will happen to my MOS? I have been told I will not be shipped and have to reno my contract, is this true? Any info will be greatly appreciated.

this actually happened to me as well. you will ship out because they will give you a waiver although what they had me do was go to the snack machine and buy all kinds of junk and as soon as i ate it i weighed in again and gained some weight best thing that worked to gain weight for me was eat everything that has protein in it and drink 3 protin shakes a day. i think every day i ate fried chicken for at least a month straight
