  1. heyy!
    im a new member and i have always wanted to join the army! I am turning 18 in a few weeks so i am hopefully going to join up soon after. I was just wondering I think i might be slightly bow legged, will this affect me joining the army?
    thanks
     
  2. Go to your doctor to confirm that you are. Does it stop you doing extremely physical tasks such as running for long distances and carrying heavy loads? Also speak to a recruiter. As long as you perform the tasks same as every other soldier you should be fine but the final say will rest with the medical staff at selection.
