No matter what the military tells you they cannot call every single hospital you have been to in order to check your records. Chances are they never will look. They look a lot at Police records, but as far as Medical it would take a lot of time in order to check every single thing. As your recruiter on a personal basis, and not around his superiors about this. He will tell you "Don't ask, Don't tell." If they hammer you and tell you "One phone call and I can find out what's wrong with you or what ever has been wrong" - They have the power, but not enough time so be confident when you tell them "Yes sir, I'm telling the truth."
