So my girlfriend has a bad cold right now, and I'm seeing her tomorrow and spending this weekend with her.
You may wonder why this is a big deal. See, I ship out to boot camp on Monday and I recently heard that if I show up at MEPS (processing center) with a cold I will not be able to go to training.
And if I don't go to training I'll lose my job contract and probably have to wait up to 6 months for another shot at it.
So Pit, I ask 2 things of you; what are some fool-proof ways to fend off a cold, and if the worst happens, what are some ways to cover up the fact that you have a cold (to a medical examination)?

And in case anyone asks, yes, I have to see my girlfriend before I leave. She's freaked out as it is and I can't just wall myself off as I'm gonna be gone for 2 months anyway.

you may not catch it if your immune system is strong enough.
Get plenty of sleep and eat healthily and it will help boost your immune system

Navy.
Actually the losing my MOS part is speculation (and me freaking out over this). I hope you're right about the monthlong delay thing if worst comes to worst, but these guys are pretty strict! Some kid didn't ship and got delayed 6 months just cus he came to MEPS with a tiny cut on his foot that counted as an "open wound".

Well it comes in tablets you can just swallow, or there is big chunky tablets that you put in hot water and drink like cider, it doenst taste all that bad either.
when i had the cold, i felt better after the first cup of it

Dude the MEPS where i live, the girl didn't let a kid ship because he had bad breathe

But I only know a little bit about Marines and i wouldn't think you would lose your MOS over it, i've seen people get sent back and they leave the next month... but i'd call up my recruiter if i was you just to make sure you know?

And Good Luck To You Man!
