Roids/prolapse issues. Think about it, if you lift up your ruck or heavy stuff while training and your colon falls out the bottom, ever wonder how much money that would cost the gov repairing and possibly discharging that person after x amount of weeks in training? Not to mention damage done to the trainee.

Roids are self explanatory. Please don't go in to a MEPS med checkup without washing that azz, it's disgusting and that room can smell like hell if there are a few dudes that don't really care. You can do shenanigans like that for S&G's when you're done with training.

It was the finger inserted up to the 5th knuckle that I did not enjoy.

Count them....

If they wanted to check my tonsils they should have gone in a different way.

My first flight physical in walks this gorgeous redhead Capt. who tells me to spread em. At first I thought I was being set up so I tell her no freakin way. She leaves and comes back with my Lt. who says I need to spread them for the nice Capt. It was all downhill from there.

The turn your head and cough is a good one too.

When I was at meps one of the doctors shared his bag of shelled peanuts with the room. ( There were about 20 of us sitting there in our boxers for an hour in the ac room because we were there on mission day) anyways long story short one kid thought it would be funny to hide a peanut in between his cheeks and gave the doctor(which by this time a female doctor took over the exams) a funny surprise when he bent over.

Interesting.

I never had anyone insert anything...

wtf?


i was processed through LA MEPCOM and went through everything. i had this old man who wore orthopedic shoes and extremely thick glasses.

i quickly realized that they probably don't really care since they're assigning such an old doctor to do such an important job.

It's ALWAYS him in LA. I had him, and two of my friends who joined years apart had him. That man is not a happy camper.

I think I also had the same guy in '91.

Wow, so how many in this thread got peckerchecked by the same dude?

This is way less than 6 degrees of separation, and frankly, I am not comfortable with how we are all connected.

The funniest thing I remember from MEPS was the whizz quiz. So there are a few NCO's watching. We do an about face facing away from the urinals (about 10 or 12 of us) and we proceed to do our business in the cup. So one of the MEPS NCO's says to one of the guys "Hey, I need to see the source of the urine!" For some reason that started everyone laughing and spilling urine on the floor.
It was gross and funny. Maybe you had to be there but there was nothing stranger in my life than facing guys while peeing with 10 other guys and everyone is laughing and trying not to spill.
