Dyscalculia and the military

Hi all,

I think I should start by explaining my situation, so bear with me.

I'm 24. Certainly not old, but not getting any younger. For a while now, since graduating uni, I've been at a bit of a loose end as to what to do with my life.

A few years ago I tried out for the Navy, but my problems with maths and mechanical comprehension let me down. I had it in mind to try again, but school and my personal life got in the way, and eventually let it go.

I've been getting my affairs back in order, and thought that I might follow in my granddad's footsteps ( he did his bit in WW2 ) and go in for the Infantry. My concern is that on the practical level, that I'll be held back in the technical aspects ( orienteering, weapons maintenance etc. etc. ). What do you reckon ?
