Hello, Back in 2000 I managed to get an Entry Level Separation code JDA1 / RE-3P from the Marines Corps. Now that I am 33 and having get rid of depression I want to join a law enforcement agency (Police Department or Border Patrol). How likely is that my discharge from the Marines Corps will haunt me down?
(At the moment of truth people were asked (among other things) to notify if they have previously suffered from depression and/or suicidal thoughts. I stepped forward and told them I did since age 12. They sent me to get verified with some doctors/psychologist and got kicked out. However I have never been diagnosed with any mental problem in my civilXXXXX XXXXXfe. No records exist on the condition I suffered. I've been ok for more than 8 straight years.

Thanks a lot,
