  • My record is spotless aside from a single speeding citation but......

    that's not what I'm worried about. When I'm done with college, I'm planning on applying to several departments in my area (Niles, Des Plains, Norridge, Harwood Heights, and Chicago) with Niles being my top choice. While I was a Sophomore in high school, I had my right big toenail removed permanently removed because of a major ingrown problem. Would this present a problem when I apply or would the department love the fact that I'm lacking a nail? Got this idea because my podiatrist (Fmr. Army podiatrist) said the Army would actually prefer that I get all 10 toenails ripped out.

    Are you for real? I'm so glad I'm almost to the age where I can retire.

        lol. No one will care if you are missing a toe nail. However, you may fail the psychological part of the hiring process if you decide to have the other 9 toe nails removed to increase your chances of bieng hired....

          As long as you can perform the minimum physical requirements of the job its not going to be a problem. We have an officer in SD that had his leg blown off from the shin down by a landmine. He now has a titanium replacement and he can run faster than most people and continues to serve as a full-time officer. You also can't tell he has a prosthetic unless he wears shorts.

                      As a matter of fact, Niles is giving a test and you must have at least 8 of your toe nails intact, so sounds like you're good to go...

                        Yea, and then it was a pain in the @$$ soaking the toe in Epsom salt for a few weeks due to exposed nerves but now the bed is hard enough to protect itself, and I'm glad to hear that it won't be a major hurdle. BTW, does anyone want to see pictures of the toe My girlfriend thinks its neat and even tries to poke it once in awhile so its not that bad lol

                            Why don't you become an MD-11 pilot? I don't think the toe nail would interfere with the rudder pedals...

                              I can't afford flight school at the moment otherwise I would have worked towards my goal of flying FedEx MD-11's, or maybe UPS but they seek really experienced pilots hence the awesome pay they get over passenger pilots. First year FO's get 174K a year for wide-bodies (DC-10/MD-11)! The toe really isn't an issue in fact I don't even notice about it until I get the random finger poke from the gf. I could go euro and fly KLM's MD-11's lol
