Hey. In December last year i passed all my interviews and pre-selection. This year January i was in my first day at Pirbright. I passed my medical test but had a heart murmur. I was sent to Birmingham hospital and found out that instead of 3 heart flaps that overlap in my valve, i have 2 flaps that overlap instead. My gp said i was perfectly fine and apart from this problem i am healthy! He also said that i can have a letter from him as proof. I got a letter in early February telling me i got deffered but it never said if i can not join at all or was just deffered for a year. Will i able to try again next year? I originally wanted to be a recce but maybe i can join as a Engineer? Seriously no joke here but joining the British Army was my dream ever since i was 12. Most of my family has served either in the Navy or Army. I feel heartbroken that my dream was crushed in front of me and i was so close to achieveing my dreams! I always wanted to fight for something and the Army gave me a chance to serve and fight for my country. Every time i go to town i see veterans of the Army, i have a feeling inside me like i let myself down and i get so jealous when i hear my mates trying for the Army. Is there a spot of hope for me? I heard from a friend that there are ways you can get around these problems, is it true?
