I dont see why not. if it dosent intervine in the phisical aspect i dont see why you cant join..
if you can run and do everything they ask you sure go for it. there is no reasone again for you not to be able to join the army or any branch.

talk to a recruiter then join good luck

need anything else? please post

Default surgeries

i have had three abdominal surgeries, and they said all they would need to get the waiver is something in my records (like a letter from the doc) saying that the issue is completely resolved and they do not expect any future problems.
