Disabled people in the military? info
dear Takako Tompez
I can compare what you mean...
I enroled into MCJROTC when I was a freshman in High School (i am now a junior) and ever since that very first day, all I have wanted to do is join the military. (Marines especially Oorah!!!) but unfortunately I have epilepsy.
I have had only one single seizure and it was the summer before my freshman year in HS. I have talked to all different types of recruiters and soldiers/Marines asking them what they think about having people with disabilities like mine in the military, but doing jobs that wont put others in danger (like on a base or something). Most of them tell me that they think it would be great if people like me could join.
I am trying to get a second opinion, but I am having trouble getting ahold of a second Doctor.
All I want to do is Help my country.....without hurting my country....because of my disability
Good luck with your Bipolar
and Never give up!!
