I kid you not. I applied to join the army a few months ago and I got a letter saying Dear sir, owing to the fact that you have XXX mental condition, you're not fit to serve. Now, what pisses me off is that these army medical chappies have only seen my medical records, they haven't seen me or done a proper examination on me... so how can they make a judgement on my fitness to serve my condition is something called Asperger's Syndrome btw, which manifests itself in being very very good in one particular subject mine is guns, rifles and the army it also manifests itself in being unable to socialise however, with all things autistic, it doesn't apply equally to everyone. And everyone who actually knows me can't belive it, when they read the letter, thier first reaction is "Oh my god, what the F*** etc" But oh well. Rant aside, I'm also on to ask for advice How do I get the army to rethink thier position, because I really really want to serve and there is no doubt in my mind or the minds of others that I CAN serve and I am capable... it's just some military doctor reading some paperwork... your thoughts people?
