Just for a little background info, I'm 19 and in Army ROTC trying to contract because I want to serve after college. My parents are 100% against it, saying it will kill the family, they cannot believe I'm related to them, don't want to know when I'm killed, take it as a death sentence, etc. I told them I'm contracting despite how they feel and they are very upset about it. I have to get a medical waiver before I can contract and the only thing I need for that waiver is a doctors note. My parents took me to the doc for the condition the Army found just for my own personal health. My parents are happy that the doctor said my condition will not affect me at all, but then I asked the doc in front of my parents for a note so I could join the Army. He said he could and all I have to do is email him the address to send it to and obviously my parents do not want the note sent. Here is where I need advice on. I want the note sent so I can contract but my parents are completely against it. We've sat down and discussed the whole situation many times and I will not budge on my stance and either will they. I'm never going to have their approval on this so should I just go ahead and email the doc behind their back and have him send it? I understand why my parents are upset about me joining and I'm sorry for what I'm putting them through because I love them, but this is something I have to do. Please do not move this to Teh Barracks, I want advice from you all. Thanks!
