Do i have to say anything??

I'm going into the navy. But I have genital herpes and I was told by a recruiter that I shouldn't say any thing about it. But do they test for it in boot camp???

no they do not test for it.

genital herpes isn't an issue in the armed services.

I'm sure they do yearly paps on their female recruits. they don't test for herpes though.   They do test for a few other std's.

I'd file a complaint about the recruiter. 1 out of every 2-3 of their recruits has hsv1 and 1 out of every 4-5 has hsv2. The recruiter who told you to go elsewhere because of herpes was not following their rules and needs to be reprimanded!!
