    Outbreaks are caused by many factors and one of them is Stress.  In the Marine Corp Bootcamp you'll be under 13 weeks of 24/7 stress!  yes even while you sleep because they mess with you even though you aren't suppose to.  3 weeks of the bootcamp is out in the field which means poor hygeine in the area below.  think about not changing your briefs for a month.  after boot camp and MCT then the quality of living gets better. 

     

    Luckily in bootcamp they'll give you whatever meds u need.

    You should really ask a Marine Recruiter. Call 1-800-Marines or visit http://www.marines.com/ to find one near you.

      Thanks i already talk to a recruter and the answer is yes you can join any military brand if you have herpes but you cannot have an outbreak when you report to MEP's that will require a waver and that's not good.
