so now that i'm in the military, i have health care for the first time in my life... it's nice i guess. Well i have dental as well (also my first time with it), so i went to the dentist for the first time in my life. They told me my teeth are fine, but they want to take my back teeth out. WTF. my back teeth are fine, nothing wrong with then, but they said that i can't get deployed unless i get them out... WHAT THE HELL? why does deployment depend on teeth? Why is it i have heard of marines who are severely injured in combat being sent on multiple tours in iraq, and i can't go unless they pull my teeth out. not that i'll ever get deployed in the near future, but i don't want to have my teeth pulled so i can go when the opportunity comes along.
