Can you join the Marines if you have Asperger's syndrome?

Unfortunately not. Not if you are an American citizen or legally-resident alien.

The United States Marine Corps adheres to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and as such, it expressly disqualifies persons with any mental-health conditions that may be considered adverse from joining its ranks under any conditions.

It may be possible to join the US Army with the mild form of autism called Asperger's Syndrome.
