    The guy said he was really sorry I spent the time going out there since I was pretty much denied, and thanked me for being really interested in joining them.

    He said that if I quit taking my RX medicine for a year, I could try again and MAYBE get a shot. I guess I need to find out if I can get a waiver from a doctor saying they felt I was fit enough for service. Wuold getting multiple waivers from multiple doctors help? Should I get my friend's dad/good family friend who's a retired Captain to write a letter on my behalf? Should I maybe get the local congressman to maybe bullshit one for me as well?


    :dunno:


    I'm really pissed because I've been toying with the idea since last spring? or so, and have really decided to start taking the active steps, figure out what I need to know, all that shit, to only have it end in this crap :o

    I know my chances for something like OCS are pretty much over (even though that's determined by a board/panel) and I don't really know if I want to go through all this trouble to just enlist :(


    Any advice? Anyone been in a similar situation? Anyone know what to fuckign do?

    do you really have ADHD/ADD? If so the military is not for you if you are out in a remote place he chance of you needing you medication and loosing it is high. If not then its safe to assume you were just in it for the adderall or other medication.

    Wait, can't you get discharged for not mentioning pre existing medical conditions? I heard of a few people who had injuries and after being in the military for a bit were found out to have enlisted under fraudulent information and discharged.
