In brief: NO

Standards show that both conditions are clearly disqualifying.
"current or history of lupuserythematosus (710.0) or mixed connective tissue disease variant (710.9 ) is disqualifying." &" current or history of rheumatoid arthritis (714.0) is disqualifying.".

In brief: Probably not.

You would best speak with a marine recruiter for the answer. My guess is these diseases would disqualify the affected individual from serving.
