First and foremost, to all that have served, thank you for your diligence and service.
I have a question regarding the age limit for Marine Corps Reserve for a non prior service candidate (enlisted route). I have read on the Marine Corps website that the cut-off is age 29. I have also read on this site and other Marine Corps forums that the cut-off is age 30-33 with a waiver. Does the 30-33 window of opportunity apply to prior service only, or is it possible for a non prior service candidate to receive an age waiver, providing he/she has everything squared away (300 PFT, 90 ASVAB etc.)?
I am currently age 29. I tried to enlist a year ago; but was denied due to a tattoo that would have been visible in PT gear. I have since endured the popular laser removal process, the tattoo has faded significantly; but I have 3-4 procedures remaining. I am a bit apprehensive that the process might not be done by age 30; however I am still working at it.
The recruiter made no promises; but said to return when the tattoo was removed completely. I know time is critical, if not too late already; but if I have an idea of the official age limit for Marine Corps Reserve, at least it will give me piece of mind. Any information would be appreciated, thank you.
