    So just like regular carriers then for them?

    That won't be changing with this repeal. Further, they can be asked from what I understand now.

    I guess. We had no marines on my carrier. I don't know if any actual carriers have had marines aboard for a while.

    It's not a good idea to do so post-any surgery/gender alteration, since it is something that they ask about and consider lying about if they find it after the fact.

    Although, I'd say that this might open the door to medical waivers (with service limitations).

    You can request an award from the board for military service. It's a nice little badge thing under your name. You can do so here: Debate Politics Forums - Awards

    Thank you for your service.
