Last week I was medically discharged from my ATR as they want a further examination on a scar which was an abcess next to my coccyx in Nov 2002, I also apparently have a slight narrowing of my ear canals. I have been told to gather as much evidence as possible to convince ATRA and the ATR doctors in January, that these will not cause me any problems in my career. I know they won't as I sailed through RSC and have been training at a gym etc for a couple of years now. Isn't it the Army's job to prove to ME that I WON'T be able to serve because of these problems? And why wasn't this picked up on at RSC? Lastly, is this the Army being over-cautious? I will be contacting every person possible to write letters up to bring back to ATR to allow me to continue training. All help and advice appreciated. Thanks.
