  2. i knew someone who went to basic training and he had a infected throat before going and he was taking medication when he went .

    ring your recruiter or something
  3. Yes , like luke's advised ring your recruiter, if it's just a set course for you take everyday - like a weeks worth or something. i can't see it being too much of a problem. I'm sure if you had such problems whilst in Phase 1 they'd prescribe exactly the same.

    Syn :)
