I had mild asthma when I was very young and now being 15 I have not seen any symptoms of it occur for a very long time, So here comes to big question, Can I join the military with asthma? If so can I join SF?
Note: I haven't needed to use my inhaler for years either for any sort of allergic or exercise induced asthma

Please help

Asthma (493), including reactive airway disease, exercise-induced bronchospasm or asthmatic bronchitis, reliably
diagnosed and symptomatic after the 13th birthday, does not meet the standard. Reliable diagnostic criteria may include
any of the following elements: substantiated history of cough, wheeze, chest tightness, and/or dyspnea that persists or
recurs over a prolonged period of time, generally more than 12 months

So in plain English it states that ANY symptoms of Asthma after my 13th birthday DQ me?
EDIT: Also could say mild coughing from some bad colds be considered Asthma related symptoms

You read the stickies, right? Did you complete your profile?

I see you completed your profile. You're doing better.

Now, don't expect us to do your research for you. Go see a recruiter. They prolly won't kick you out of the office for asking for a packet.

If you want to be SF, don't take the easy way out. Do your own work.

What does board rule number 10 say? There is a reason for that.

You are barely 16, too young to enlist.

Enjoy being a kid, having a driver's license, a girlfriend, etc.

You can worry about SF after you finish high school.

And new board members need to stop starting new threads. This topic has already been discussed, and guidance/advice issued.

Focus on completing school and you have a few years. If you want to stay around here and read, then do so. I would refrain from posting for quite some time.

We had alot of Soldiers chapter out during BCT b/c they lied about having it has a child. When that first run came up and that DS went combat speed they all started dropping like flies.


Like Mr. Dusty said you need to find this out for yourself not b/c it is a simple question you can ask a recruiter, but b/c everyone is different. This is'nt a question anyone here can answer, this question is on you.
