Simple military question.
I'm just curious since I've fallen to the discrimination myself, but why can't an insulin dependant diabetic that IS in GOOD control of his health join the military? I know the gov't can do as they please, but talk about a slap in the face. I remember when I was 17, two men in uniform came to the house looking for my brother (probably to recruit.) Once I told them he wasn't there, they asked me very persistently if I was interested in serving my country. Being a smarta?$, I said "nah you boys don't want me." They insisted they did with a bewildered look for a minute or so until I told them I was diabetic. I got a "good day sir," and they left. Wth?
