Joining the army with minor aspergers?

#1 Post by shitbucket »

Hey all, have wanted to join the army for a while now, about 7 years and only recently was diagnosed with minor aspergers/high functioning aspergers or whatever the f@#k it's called, after doing some research i've discovered it's a possible bar, some people have said it's a definite bar from the army and some have said it's on a case by case basis. can anyone confirm on the regulations on joining with aspergers? if it's a case by case basis thing then i should be a-okay because i've grown out of it, if it's an instant bar? well, f@#k, is all i can really say.

On your P Course any weakness would show up and you would be shown the door. A rifleman's lot is not always a happy one as you still have to do a lot of physical exercise, so look for some thing with less stress to it.
