I'm scheduled to sign my consent form to release my med. docs to the doctors tomorrow! It's both exciting and terrifying all at the same time. My recruiter told me not to say anything until she seen my scar! A little on the big side, like eight inches unfortunately. She says a BIG reason they'd deny me is because I'd have medical for the rest of my life after serving...and this means paying for any potential future surgeries...and if it has to do with money...:-(
though my great-grandfather was in the Navy...he was a POW for a few years--shot in the head, though he survived...a plate was put in his head. He wanted to re-enlist but was denied NOT because of the plate in his head but because they no longer accepted colorblind individuals. I thought I was bummed out about my chances but I was talking with my grandma who told me how hurt he must have felt.
So...if this doesn't work out [though I want this so bad] I'm going to attend more school.
