I went to MEPS and got my medical stuff done but they questioned somethings I said and wanted X-rays, but I have no interest in going back right now. How long will they keep the records and what not?

Are you asking so you can make the process faster next time or so that they forget about it and you dont bring it up next time you go?

Unfortunately, everything is computerized now. Those records won't go away. If you go back again they will ask you so you might as well get the x-rays done and be ready if you go again.

Generally, they will keep the records easily available for about 90 days. I have found that after that, my applicants generally have to turn in the same records again. It's not that they get rid of them, it's that they want you to ressubmit them so they don't have to dig them out of files archives.

They will keep a record of your "yes" answers FOREVER. There is no chance that they will "Forget" something you told them about. Even if you switch to a new MEPS, they will transfer that.

You will have to get what they ask for if you ever want to join any branch.
